Birdsong Bows on an autumn break

I am currently on vacation from Sept. 24 through Oct. 5.! For the first few days, I'll just be kickin' back, finishing orders, and getting ready for a quilt retreat Oct. 2-5. During Oct. 2-5, I will not have any Internet access. Any orders placed during this time will be processed upon my return...and you won't hear from me at all during Oct. 2-5. Sorry for the inconvenience! But any Halloween or Harvest bows will be shipped in PLENTY of time for the holiday.

At the quilt retreat I will be making a twin-sized quilt for my daughter, Natalia, with hopes that it will be done before she moves into her "big girl bed" within about 5-6 months. I'll post some pictures soon of the fabric I picked up. At the quilt retreat, everyone works on their own projects...we just bring our supplies and sewing machines, and sew away. The retreat center is on a wooded lake, and is beautiful. It's so relaxing, since all we have to do is sew, relax, and eat....all meals are provided. Hopefully my girls will treat my husband well, and there are no illnesses!

In other news, I will no longer be posting designs on eBay for an indefinite period of time. With my full-time job and the kids, eBay has become more of a "time-sucker" than a good business opportunity for me any more. I will continue to sell on my Website and on Etsy.

More winter holiday bows will be available on my site throughout October. Here's a sneak peek of the first one I will be adding! Please check the "Winter Holidays" section of the site during the next few weeks for my new line.

Holiday hair accessories are arriving!

I added the first winter holiday layered bow to the Birdsong Bows website today....just as I feel that I haven't even scratched the surface of what I can offer for the harvest season! I've got so many colors of ribbon for Halloween/Thanksgiving....if you are looking for something on my website and I don't have it listed yet, just ask. My ribbon drawers are overflowing! More new holiday designs will continue to arrive through the end of the season, so check back frequently.

Here's my latest -- a cute snowman-inspired layered bow. It can be purchased on my website for only $11.99.

Welcome to my new customers from Gymbohaven! I'm having fun getting to know you. Remember to use your code at checkout for that 10 percent discount! If you're looking for bows to match new Gymbo lines, let me know. I've been working on new orders and holiday items, and just haven't posted the designs for the Lots of Dots bows and the fall line.

Here's a picture of Anna watching TV with her dad. I took it with my Nikkor F/1.4 lens...I'm so happy to take nice indoor photos without using the flash. Hooray for fast lenses!
