My current favorite

Since I'm not so great at posting maybe you're wondering what exactly I'm doing. Well, I do have a husband and three kids, the eldest leaves tomorrow to go back to college, and I homeschool the other two.

My family is my first priority. Then comes ministry opportunities. Oh, and let's not forget laundry! Because my children are older, I do have plenty of time to keep my hands busy and be creative. My very favorite thing to make right now is woven headbands. I can park myself in my favorite chair, chat with my sweet people, and weave away. I managed to weave several the other night at the airport while waiting for a flight to arrive.

I love the brown ones. The one on the far left is modeling a brown bow that is separate. A bow can slide in any of the headbands to change up the look.

Here are the reds. These will be nice for Valentine's Day, but really work any time of the year. Recently my 17 year old daughter and I were looking at old photos. I noticed that in most of the pictures, she was wearing a red bow.

The headbands on the top are only 1/4 of an inch wide. The ones on the bottom are one inch at their widest point.

Lots of pinks and greens here. There are three different shades of each color in this group.

These color combinations came about after a trip to the mall. I first noticed them in Gymboree, but they seem to be everywhere. In this photo the dark navy looks black....I guess I should work on my photography skills!

Now where are my keys??

While I may not be able to help you find your keys, I can help you organize them with these cheery key fobs.

Aren't they fun? I had a hard time choosing just one!

Getting accustomed to custom

It's been awhile since I last posted, but I'm still around. Lately I've noticed a trend that I'm beginning to enjoy. Now that word is getting around that there are bows to be had, moms are looking in closets and needing to match specific outfits.

Can I tell you how much fun it is to take my color cards and ready-made goodies and visit closets to match outfits?! Today I went to two different homes and with the little girl dresses spread all round, we matched and designed bows, headbands, and korkers. There are about fifteen different pinks on my color charts and it can be so hard to pick just one. Well, today was about making sure we got just the right pinks and blues.

One mom was all about doing her birthday shopping for her daughter's friends, so we picked out colors for the UGA fan, the one who loves purple, and the girly-girl.

Perhaps you have a Sunday dress that needs a little something and you can't find just the right shade. Just shoot me an email, and I'll be happy to accomodate you.
