Happy Cyber Monday

I think I must be a little behind in the cyber world, as it seems that Cyber Monday is the online shopping equivalent to Black Friday. In the spirit of shopping, I have extended the 20% off all orders through 11:59 ES.

Just be sure to enter the code: THANKS

Let the holiday shopping begin internet!!

Somewhere over the rainbow...

Just want to take a minute to show off a custom Felt Fuzzy. Someone wanted a rainbow for their daughter and I love the way this one turned out (despite the fact that there were some rather intense stitching issues- but I won in the end).

Anyway, this is a perfect example of how fun custom creations can be...a lot of the time, the inspiration comes from a customer asking "what about?" And it's that challenge that I just can not back down from (which is a good thing for business). Its also the same question that was answered with my dear husband and two daughters...but that's another story.

Also, remember to ensure your order arrives in time for Christmas, please order by December 5th. I can not guarantee holiday delivery after this date.

No peanuts please!

No peanuts anyone?
With inspiration from my dearest friend and her need to watch certain foods with her daughters, we came up with a new and stylish way to remind the world not to feed peanuts to those wee ones with allergies.

The best part is, not only is this clip very functional, but also adorably sweet!

...but it also got my thinking..maybe we could create a line of allergy clips. If you have an allergy clip you'd like created just for you, just email me!!

New and Improved No Slip Grips!

I have been working on a new no slip hair grip for awhile now...and after a unanimous vote of various friends and family, I am thrilled to let the internet know that I finally have an even better no slip grip!
We will be phasing out our recent foam gripper for a new, unbelievably grippy silicone no slip hair grip.

So watch out customers, you're about to be shocked and amazed by The Bowtique's even more improved bows and hair clips!!

(pssst...we will also be offering new adjustable ribbon headbands for girls of all ages! We've been having fun trying these out for awhile now, and they are almost ready to be featured!)

Keeping me busy.

This is what I have been up to in between my own online orders, you know, in my spare time! (if you could hear me, I am snorting with sarcastic laughter).
Only one more wholesale order to go until I can devote my time to the website orders...and keep things going smoothly for the holiday rush.

Did you know that there are only 44 days until Christmas?

November's Clip of the Month!

I had a really though time trying to decide which clip to feature for November's clip of the month, but I decided the adorable owl would be perfect, as I am seeing owls everywhere! Owls are the new black you know!
And since it's that time if year, I thought Toys of Tots would be a wonderful foundation to give to.
All proceeds for our Owl clip/snappy/Pony O will be donated to a local Toys for Tots drop off site in a monetary value.
You can feel great helping a needy child receive a new gift Christmas morning and look great because you'll be sporting our sweet Owl Clip!
It's a win-win for all!

I took the Homemade Pledge!

I Took The Handmade Pledge!

There are so many cool Mompreneurs and Crafters out there. So as a member of the Mom Design world, I decided to try and support as many other designers as possible this holiday season.
I have to say, there is no shortage for cool and unique gift ideas out there. So in order to spark your interest in other cool crafters, here's a short list of some other sites that I have recently enjoyed!
