Halloween listings are starting!

Well, it's holiday time of the year again, and I can dig around in my Halloween ribbon drawer for some fantastic ribbon! Today I made a funky loopy bow in traditional Halloween colors, and I really like it! It's in my Etsy shop for only $13.99.

Now that both girls are going to be in school - one in 4th grade and the other in pre-kindergarten three mornings per week, I will be listing new creations more frequently than I did over the summer.

So, moms out there, do you look forward to the start of school, or dread it? I always have mixed feelings. Here in northern Indiana, summers are waaay to short, and it signals the end of summer. And I do NOT like cold weather! But I do enjoy crafting, sewing, quilting and knitting, so colder weather is conducive to these types of indoor pursuits. And it sure is a lot quieter when the kids are out of the house for a few hours!

Full Bowmaking Tutorial Line is here! Includes Funky Loopy bows!

It's been a nice, wonderful summer, and I've spent a majority of it finishing up the final touches on my e-book tutorials on making hair bows!

You can purchase the entire Platinum collection from my website for $21.99. This includes books on how to make korker bows, how to make boutique bows (includes all sizes of bows and bowbands, including beautiful multi-layered bows!), and "funky loopy bows." If you already know how to make some of these types of bows, you can also order the books individually. :)

For those who want to sell their work and are just thinking about doing online sales, I've written a fourth book, called "Smashingly Successful Online Sales." This will take beginners through the ins-and-outs of selling online. You can also purchase this on my website.

With the kids returning to school, I will finally have time to work on my holiday bow line! Please look for it within the next couple of weeks!
