Meet the Newest Bowtique Boy!

Yes, I said Boy!
The Bowtique household was blessed with a new addiiton on Oct. 19th.
Eric Thomas weighed 8 lbs, 3 oz with a bit of hair. Sadly, he won't be sporting too many Bowtique bows, but he's still a good guinea pig to try some new styles. (shhhhh...don't tell his Dad).

It's been 2 weeks and we are slowly getting back to reality. There is still not too much sleep, so I am slower than usual, but happy to report that I can now remember my name.

This leads to me wonder just when I will re-open The Bowtique.
I think I will re-open the 2nd week of November. I realize this does not leave alot of time to order for Christmas, especially since orders will be take me a good 10-14 days.
For this, I am sorry. I hope to be working at a quicker pace once we are in a good groove, but for now, I must place my attention first on my family.

I will be posting the Christmas order deadline on the front page very soon. So keep your eyes open!

As always- thanks to all for the well wishes and your patience during this time of big transitions for my family.

Twinkle Twinkle little ....Clip!!

You have to see them to believe them! These are my new personal favorite!

Our new Sparkle Clip. It looks like someone just poured a whole bunch of glitter all over the clip....but the good news is that the sparkle stays on.
Our new Sparkle clip is made using a unique sparkle ribbon. It is carefully lined onto an alligator clip and completed by our super duper hair grippers.
These are perfect for everyone.
Simple and chic enough for the big girls, sparkley enough to catch the little girls attention.
And let's face it, what girl can not resist something sparkley?

Available in 5 colors- pink, violet, silver, turquoise and brown.

Back to School and Looking Cool!

I look at the last post and can not believe it was been that long since I have posted. Shame on me.

But fear not- I am still here toiling away to bring you more cuteness on a clip.
And without further ado- here are some of our newest additions to The Bowtique, just in time for back to school!

Also not quite new, but very exciting:

We have added new colors to the sequin dragonfly clips. They now come in orange and black! These are limited in numbers right now until we see how popular they will be!

We also have added the choice of lower case or upper case letters for our Monogram Me Felt clips! (by popular demand).

Aaaaaaaand...our Big Girl Felt Clips have been reduced from $8 to $7. So as the cost of living goes up, at least the cost of felt clips goes down!

Your welcome!

New Designs!

Gosh, its been awhile since I have posted on here. It seems that daily life has gotten the better of me as I have been busier with the girls, bows, my personal blog, Easter, visitors, and oh yeah, being pregnant.

Yessiree. I suppose my husband and I thought life was just getting too simple, so we decided to add baby #3 to The Bowtique household. Which would also explain my lack of blogging and updating the site.
But the first trimester is over and I slowly seem to be gaining an ounce or two of energy back, so I will do my best to update the blog a little more often.

But until then, here's what you really want...some pictures of the new clips.
As you can see, I have been on a bit of a Felt Fuzzy kick. I am slowly re-designing some old styles (like the ladybug) to give them a fresher new look.

And for those who read the blog, a secret sale for you...

Happy Day all!

Mark your calender- we're taking a break!!

I know, I know I am waaaay behind on the blogging. Truth be told, I have been much busier with bows than I anticipated.
Well that and I have much more on my plate than usual (and that will be clearer to you in a few weeks).
For the past few weeks, I have made alot of bows and clips for a local organization for charity. I am finally finished with that, so now I can focus solely on my current orders again!
Well, current orders and trying to get some new re-designs up.
Yes, its true I have mentioned this before, but they are underway.
A new tiara clip and a couple new spring and easter bows, as well as the first headband to feature some felt pieces. (my 5 year old was the inspiration for this one)

However, right now its important for me to step back and take a breather. I know its time to take a break when I start mess up orders. So to ensure my customers receive my best work and I gain a bit of sanity and some much needed family time, I will be closing The Bowtique from

March 14th - March 22nd
(give or take a few days)

This will still give those who need Easter bows a window of opportunity to get some bows when I return in time for Easter.
A big thanks to everyone's support. I would not be doing what I love if it wasn't for you!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Yes, we are still here. I have been much busier than expected for this time of year, which explains my lack of posting!
But rest assured, I am working on some new spring bows and clips.
Coming soon will be some new adorabley sweet bunny ribbon and a pretty spring creamsicle and pink polka dot ribbon.
I have also decided to redesign a few clips. There will soon be a new monkey, plus a few other felt additions that have been in the works for waaaaay too long. I just seem to lack to time to get these new products on the website.

Also just a quick note that I will be taking a break and closing The Bowtique for a week or two towards the end of March. I will post the exact dates as we get closer.

Valentine's Sale!

I know..shocking huh? So rarely do I have a sale before a holiday! you go.
Most Valentine bows and clips will be on sale before you actually need them in February.
The worklist is not too bad, but remember to give yourself enough shipping time. When in doubt, I highly recommend Priority shipping and sending me a quick email.

New Super cool adjustable snug headbands are here!

Oh yeah!
Our new super cool adjustable snug headbands are here. But we are just going to call them adjustable headbands for short.
They are so simple, they're brilliant and they stay in so well, you'll wonder why we didn't come up with this sooner!

Our solid color toggle headbands go with everything. They are simple enough for everyday and pretty enough for special occasions. They are made with 5/8 grosgrain ribbon and feature a simpley sweet tuxedo bow.
They can be adjusted to a snug fit using our unique toggle clasp. Very popular with girls of all ages! (just ask a couple of MY friends!)

We will also be adding additional prints soon...but for now you can request almost any print ribbon we have in stock!

Be sure to check them out at our introductory price!

New Designs!

New Year, new designs!
I seem to be a little on the slower side of things this year...and its only been 10 days into 2009! But here are a few of the new designs to be added whenever I get a spare minute! (hardy har, like I ever get a spare minute). I have been working on a large donation order for an upcoming fund raiser, so things are still pretty hectic around here!
But I will do my best to add new items the next few weeks.

Without further ado, and just in time for Valentine's Day...

and St. Patrick's Day.

But my new favorite is the rainbow clip. Inspired by a customer that wanted a rainbow, I decided this one was too cute not to share.
Available in both big and little girl sizes, its perfect for spring!

More new designs are still on the way!

Happy New Year!

Hi all!!

I hope everyone enjoyed a safe and happy holiday! As you can tell from my lack of blog entries, I have been Busy (so busy, that I needed a capitol B on busy)!!

But as things at home wind down, I am looking to the new year for new designs!
I am hoping to soon launch a new line of adjustable headbands! These will also be a great choice for the Bowtique Moms too.

I will also be adding some new princess clips to the site this month. These have been in wild demand from my friends. I am guessing that this is the season to visit the happiest place on Earth. I should know, as we recently went to visit our neighbor Mickey.

So, here's a sneak preview of some super adorable clips- Snow White, Cinderella and Tinkerbell.

Okay- that's just a quick update so everyone doesn't think I have disappeared.
I will be working on getting some new designs up within the month or so. Including a new St Patty's bow and some spring sequin clips (also around the corner).
As always- please feel free to email me with any questions or requests!
