Ya-hoo! I'm doing the first sale dance in my living room.

Never mind that it was my sister who purchased from me. hehehe. Thanks sis. You're the best! It's a SALE!

More exciting news... someone hearts me. Someone with a very cute sock shop.

In Etsy lingo, that is someone telling you they like your store!

Still not sure if this is going to pay off in the long run.... but....

Work in Progress

Oh hi.  You came back!  I have a story.

Bows galore were scattered on the table yesterday.

The three-year-old girl asked, "Mommy, why do you have all the bows? They're silly."

We will be referring to the nameless children as Girl 1 and Girl 2.  Kind of how Dr. Suess invented his little friends Thing 1 and Thing 2.  Only my little friends are real.  And don't have blue hair.  Or permanent smiles drawn on their faces.    

Back to the story.  Perhaps she is right.  I'm not sure this little business will take off, but it's really exciting to try.  I listed a few items on Etsy last night.  No sales yet, but I've had some views.  Yay yay yay!  Any sign of life is super exciting while getting my boutique on it's feet.  So, feel free to leave me some feedback about anything- I'll use all the help I can get.  Just remember, it's a work in progress, so look for innovations and improvements along the way.

Thanks for taking an interest in my little journey!

A blog about bows and such.

Do you go to desperate measures to make your kids cute?

Just wondering.

Like making sure the ruffle of the girl's sock is folded over just right? 

Or re-doing the part in her hair five times until its finally straight? 

Does it really matter?  

And would you honestly go to your ribbon stash and whip out a bow in 30 seconds just cuz you didn't have one that matched her current outfit?
And then made your husband 10 minutes late? (hehehehe...oops)
Yeah, that one was a bit insane on my part.

Are you sensing we have something in common?  (please say yes in your head).  Then, welcome to this blog!  This blog is for EVERYONE!  It's like visiting my house, but not.  Cuz you're busy.  And I'm probably making bows.  Or busy being a mommy.  Some of you know how that goes. So let's pretend we're all friends already.  Yay!

When you need a quick blog fix, come on over!  I just started a little Etsy shop.  I'll be posting about how well or not so well that is going.  And about life as a mommy with girls and bows.  Feel free to spread the word....anyone is welcome to add my blog to your bloglist/feed.

PS- What desperate measures have YOU taken lately to get your kids ready?
