I felt like it...

Some days I can't get enough of my ribbon. Other days it's my fabric. Today I felt like...well, felt. The flowers are attached to soft and stretchy headbands. So comfortable! I've listed these (and several more styles) in my Etsy shop.

Thomas goes to school!

I love this Thomas outfit by Danielle of 2the9s*boutique! Thomas is all ready to go back to school! The bows are made with bright primary colors- they are a great match for the Thomas outfit, or mix and match them with her other back-to-school outfits. The little Thomas clip is the perfect finishing touch!

The Blues...

DillyDally's Back-to-School launch started yesterday, with plenty of great listings- my designer friends always amaze me! Click the adorable logo below to see everything.

For this launch, designers used denim in their creations- as soon as I saw the beautiful template, I knew I wanted to make some accessories that could be worn with anything-denim, as well as school uniforms. The first set is a large ribbon flower that can be worn with the headband. I used denim ribbon, and denim fabric in two shades.

And for the second set, I found these cute denim flower appliques, so I decided to make a set of bows with a matching clip.

I also have some collaborations that I'll post separately. This is a fun launch- be sure to check it out on eBay!

Singed Turquoise

It's a relaxing Saturday night. We grilled steak and vegetable kabobs and plan to do nothing productive tonight. Mark is watching the U.S. Open and the kids are watching Alice in Wonderland. I'm not one to sit still long enough for much television. So I dug through my fabric bins and found this turquoise, black and lace combination. Here's what came about- I'm in love with this!

I've listed it on Etsy. I can picture it with that perfect black dress- and don't be shy, moms...it fits any age.

Argh, Matey!

Here's a set of pirate bows to match the fun outfits by twolittle*angels. Ready to ship, listed on eBay!

Hot! And Pink!

The kids got out of school this past Monday and summer vacation is in full swing already. We took a spontaneous trip up to Waterville, Maine for two nights and got back yesterday. Today is our first day to sit around and do nothing, which I will enjoy. Two of the kids came home with strep throat, so lounging around all day will be our priority.

It's going to start getting hot today, finally! Speaking of hot...check out this pretty treasury that includes one of my hot pink ribbon flowers on Etsy. I love the pink and green combination that LoveandSpunk put together.

Glitter, and a giveaway!

I mentioned getting this pretty glitter ribbon weeks ago, but it sat on a shelf shining and staring at me until today. I went back and forth with myself wondering what type of clip to make with it, and decided on a very basic clip. The ribbon is stunning by itself, without any extra loops or adornments, so I kept them simple- but they are stunning in person.

Find them on Etsy or on my website for $4.99 for a set of four, either in the sets shown or a pick-your-color set.

Now, for a giveaway! I'm giving away a set of four clips (your choice!) to TWO LUCKY FANS!

Here's how to enter:

1. Post a link to the Ladybug Bowtique Facebook Fan page on your own FB profile. Here's the link.
2. Go to the fan page and post a comment under "It's time for a giveaway!" and tell me that you've shared a link for Ladybug Bowtique on your wall.

Easy? Thanks for helping to spread the link love! I'll announce two winners on my blog tomorrow at 1pm EST.

Blooming Dahlia

My friend and I were meandering through our local fabric store the other day (one of my favorite things to do!) and this huge silk dahlia caught my eye. It's a whopping 6 inches across- just gorgeous! Wear it clipped to the headband, or by itself.

The heat is on...

I love this set of hair clips for summer, when the hair wants to misbehave, frizz, stand out, fall flat, and all of those things. They are for any classy lady, young or younger, who wants a splash of color. Just tuck one or both in and go...easy and carefree...dainty, but bold.
