I had to play with this dotty ribbon as soon as it came in the mail. I couldn't decide which one I liked better, the milk chocolate ribbon or the dark chocolate. Which do you prefer? For some reason the blue one looks a little wonky in the picture, but behaves nicely in person. I guess some bows just aren't very photogenic!

In honor of Belle

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.

Cute girl from far away

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!

My Easter Peeps

When I was a little girl Easter meant a new dress and new shoes which had to last all spring and summer. Now that I'm older I treasure Easter for what it truly is, the resurrection of my Savior. Still, it's fun to watch little girls come into church bedecked in their Easter finery. This year I had a part in some girls' Easter bedecking. The following links will take you on a little Easter parade.....

So let's just make it ice cream week. I love this ribbon. The sweet little pink (er, strawberry) dots on chocolate- it's just so feminine.

I guess it's ice cream week

And this is heavy on the strawberry. I've also done this heavy on chocolate, but I forgot to take photos of that before it sold.

More Neopolitan Fun

Here's the same color combination in a korker. This is the second best selling item I make.

I scream, you scream...

I don't know about you, but when I hear the word neopolitan I think ice cream. But lately around my house the word is used to describe the best selling color combination-brown, pink, and cream. Or I guess you could say chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. Here's what it looks like in a headband. The one on the top is the most popular item I make.

Spring is here!

Yesterday I finally planted a butterfly garden. Hopefully I'll have a few real butterflies flitting about my yard soon. For now, I'll have to be satisfied with the ribbon variety.

For the big sisters

My good friend, Charlotte, is due to have a baby tomorrow. Her sweet daughters are getting new matching outfits to wear when they meet their baby brother for the first time. New outfits need a little accessorizing, don't you think? So do I! I haven't seen the outfits yet, but hopefully one of these will match.

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.
