I love ribbon! I think the funnest part of my job/hobby is designing. I love putting different patterns and color combinations together. I haven't had to much time to design lately because we are so busy preparing for upcoming boutiques. So.... yesterday I took some time and came up with this little cutie. One of my favorite ribbons is the 3/8 gingham, I add this to several of my small stacks and I think it gives the bow a fun look. One of the most difficult things I have to do is come up with clever names for these bows to make them unique. I have had a few ideas come to mind, then I had a great idea.....Why not let you help me? So.... hop on over to facebook if you have an account, and leave me a suggestion, or you can do it here. If I pick yours, the bow is yours. Let me know what you think!

We have fallen in love with the headband sets. The sweet weave of color on the band is super fun, and the matching clips can be used with the headband or alone. Miss Lily wore hers to preschool today, and she had so many compliments!!!

Well I haven't done anything on the blog for a while because my computer got sick (sounds a lot better than crashed or died) and I am waiting, and waiting for it to be fixed. So in the meantime..

And. I love new dress shipments! I think I love them as much as Goose does. She is always so excited to get the huge boxes open. She loves every style we carry. Last year she even "bought" a dress for her Raggedy Ann. You can imagine how excited she was to see the new Navy polka Dots and Stripes Sundress. She of course wanted one for Miss Ann but I said "Not this time Goose" We need to send one to Aimie.
Oh my gosh!! These dresses and bows are fantastic!! All of my girls would look stunning in them, but if my oldest got one, then she could share it with her younger sisters :)
Aimie - mom to 5 girls under 7 :)
Now, I don't envy you the decision on who gets the dress. 5 girls! (I have 5 sisters-I think I would have got the dress being the oldest).
And believe it or not Goose is totally excited for you! (I just have to keep reminding her)
Huge Thank yous to everyone who took the time to blog about this giveaway! I really appreciate it.

One piggie to hold them together
Then I blew her hair dry and sectioned it so I could use the triple barrel on it
a couple minutes later, because it is so nice and thin :(
Voila . Curling it this way makes it look like she has so much more hair than she really has--not to mention we are growing out the A-line. I loved it on her but she would like long hair now.
I had to post this. My six year old little peanut loves her hair. She loves it. However, she does take after me and she has the most tender head. So tear after tear. I feel for her. I went through it. So I am extremely gentle. Really, I am. Well.....She is extremely.... emmm.....DRAMATIC.
I wanted to do this fabulous up do for Easter Sunday with the classic hair bow
WOW. Have you been there?

My little Goose loves to help. I have told you that before and you can generally see her little fingers in the tutorials etc. Well after a trip to our favorite ribbon shop, from which we have purchased a grab bag: Goose loves to roll the ribbon. She is so fun to work with, and acts so grown up. I think she was waiting for me to take a picture and didn't realize for a bit that I was recording. It turned out cute. She certainly loves to be involved in the Hair Bow Stuff!

Remove the back end of the flower, the part that holds it all together.
I used to painstakingly glue each petal stack together so it would stay when I attached it to the clip. But I have a better way:
Take your wood burner or lighter and hold it to the plastic in the middle. This will of course melt it.
Working quickly, use your needle nose pliers or another flat metal surface to flatten out the melted plastic.
These are my little Goosie's fingers. She loves to help! But knows not to touch the "Green thing." EVER. (That is what I call my wood burner) :)
You will now have a flat surface where you can add your lined clip. And it will lay nicely instead of NOT. And by melting the plastic center the flower will not come apart and you do not have to glue each individual layer.
The finished product.
Absolutely adorable in piggies or attached to crochet headband which you can find at...
As soon as your dowels are ready, put them on a baking sheet and place them in your oven for about 25-30 minutes at 250 degrees. Now this works perfectly for me and the korkers stay korked. You need to watch them, however. Nobody likes burned ribbon. :)
And begin loading your needle. Place the middle of the ribbon length right through the needle. HINT: Load the entire korker on the needle before you pull it through, it will be so much easier to tie off and the Korker will look a lot better.
Here I have finished loading both needles and am ready to tie off. BIG HINT: When you take the thread through the top of the Korker, put the needle under the top ribbon onto the second in the stack. This will ensure you do not pull the thread all the way through and have to begin again. Just added security.
