Bowmania 2006

So this week was "bowmania 2006"- my friend Jessica makes and sells great little girls bows. She also designs lines for my vintage baby and leopard daisy lines (check your local shi-shi baby boutique for these fab high end items) anyway in leiu of our traditional visiting teaching experience we decided to have bowmania-- we assembly-lined out 30 bows (see bow link- scroll down to spring line pics L side- middle- were the ones we were working on) and had a great time chatting about politics, kids, families, and all our creative ventures. I was in heaven playing with all the vintage handkerchief scraps and concoting one of a kind combos (I am sucker for fun fabrics- I think its in my blood my grandparents used to own a fabric store)-- then there are the swarovski crystals (you already know i love anything sparkly), tulle, denim, ribbons-- I told her my learning how to make bows ensured I will never have a daughter! But watch out because if i do those bags of ribbon I amass on my outings to the ribbon outlet will be made into some rocking hair confections!

I love bowmania nights! I am so addicted to ribbon, it's not funny! There's something soothing about working with your hands to make something so stinkin cute. Good work!

I so need a girl to dress and accessorize. My first ds had so much hair and dh just didn't appreciate my putting it in pigtails. Boys are cute and have better toys, so I guess that's something.
