These headbands are a very popular item these days. These particular headbands were a Christmas gift from a grandmother to her grandaughters. I chose the same font for all of them, but the font, the ribbon color, and the thread color can all be changed to suit you.

I've been very busy this month making lots of Christmas bows. My embroidery machine ran non-stop for most of last week making custom headbands, key fobs, mugs, and badge reels. I'll post photos of some of these later since they are gifts...wouldn't want to spoil the surprise!

The stainless steel tumbler holds 12 ounces and the other one holds 16 ounces. Both are great for either hot or cold. At first I was disappointed that I didn't drop the 16 ounce one, but 12 ounces really is plenty. I have lots of fabric that can be embroidered for the insert. If you want one I promise not to drop it!

Tucked into the care package for my daughter who lives on the other side of the country was a lunch bag with her first initial embroidered on it. I wanted to use a three-initial monogram but she will soon have a last name and new initials. Yes, my girl is getting married!!
I have a few more of this same lunch bag as well as a bigger bag in the same design. Contact me if you're interested in one.

I realize that the M doesn't make a word. I just really like the way it looks in this font and had to add it. Off to the side are many letters that I could have added to make my own word, but I'm just realizing this now while blogging rather than in the moment. No wonder I always lose!

I've been busy making cheer bows for some little ladies who will make their cheering debut at tomorrow night's high school football game. Local elementary school girls who took a cheer clinic last weekend have the opportunity to show off their newly learned skills. As women everywhere know, we must have the right accessories. Hence, the selections below. GO EAGLES!!

I'm just happy I remembered to take a photo of it before giving it to her. I've made several fun gifts lately....a set of burp cloths, a set of kitchen towels. Since I always seem to forget to take a photo, you'll just have to take my word for how cute they turned out.

I love to garden; I have several rose bushes that are all in bloom as I speak. I cannot leave those beautiful blooms outside though. I simply must cut them and brighten my home with them. Unfortunately I'm no floral artist.
Here are a couple of bow arrangements that I made for the Help Cure Ana Maria fundraiser this Saturday in Beaufort. While my arranging isn't the best, the point is to raise money for this precious child's healthcare. If you're in the area, stop by and meet Ana Maria. And please, please pray for her and her family.

When I saw this ribbon it reminded me of my favorite daschund, Belle. Belle isn't my dog, rather she owns my former neighbors, the Smiths. We're kindred spirits when it comes to dogs, so I made this little key fob in honor of Belle. Belle's people were quite happy to have a reminder of her.

This is Lindsay, my eldest child. She's currently on the other side of the country where she attends school. In her Easter care package I added several toggle headbands. I knew I could trust Lindsay to let me know if a college student would actually wear one of these. Turns out that they do, or at least this one does.
This is what it looks like beneath. The toggle allows the headband to be adjustable. I add a little no-slip grip to the inside because a girl needs to know her headband isn't going anywhere!

This little flower is new for me. The perfectionist in me wants to get it just right before introducing it, but then again, the perfectionist in me is never satisfied. I'll just have to post the perfected versions some other time.
