A Hard Days Work

As you can see...I worked all day today to get my bow stock up. Solids, prints and Valentine's bows coming soon. This was the easy part, adding backs and finishing the edges is much more tedious. If you have any suggestions for colors or styles you would like to see more of let me know.

New Items for the New Year

These are some of the new items I am selling for this new year. I am very excited about some of my new creations. I know it is probably strange to many of you how excited I get over bows and hair accessories. I get excited about anything new but especially things I or my daughter can wear. As a child I used to love to draw clothes. I had once dreamed of becoming a fashion designer and somehow lost that vision along the road of life. I think this small business allows me to fulfill, in a small way, that dream.

These new items are already up for sale on my ETSY site. Please don't hesitate to message me if you have any questions about them. I am also on FACEBOOK now under Potpourri Patch.  This is a great place to view my new items and custom creatons as well.

Don't forget to check out my new SHABBY ROSES, POTPOURRI POMPOM FLOWERS and EXTRA LARGE BOW BANDS. These are some of my favorites.

Custom for the Holidays

This is one of my Satin Holiday Poinsettia's in black but instead of feathers and tulle I added gold ribbon and a large rhinestone accent. This was made to match a black and gold Christmas dress.
This was made to match a cute turquoise and apple green baby outfit. I think from Carter's. Made with a mixture of grosgrain ribbons in a variety of sizes. Again with a large rhinestone accent center.

Matching Mom & Daughter Bands

I made these for a friend of mine for Christmas. Her daughter and her have matching outfits and she wanted twin headbands to match. I am sure they are going to look adorable together.

The headbands are made out of a teal chiffon fabric, with button, jewel and pearl centers. Then I attached them to black metal headbands. These headbands are very comfortable and don't pinch behind the ears as some headbands do. They fit most heads, child to adult.

Creating these headbands has sparked my interest in making more matching mom and daughter headbands. I hope to offer more colors and styles, like these, after the first of the year.

Check back for more cute items!

December Giveaway

I am trying my first post from my phone. Very exciting.

This month has been a little bit chaotic and so I haven't offered a giveaway. Instead, I am offering a dollar off many of my items on my Etsy shop, now until the end of December.

If you purchase by the end of today you can still receive them by Christmas. All items that are on sale prices have already been adjusted. If you live near by and see something u like just send me note and I can put it on hold for you.
Most of my items are one of a kind, so they may never be back. Get them while you can! Oh, and thanks for helping me clear out some old so I can make room for new items after the holidays.

Letter To Santa

I was looking for a Christmas card that my daughter could color and send to Santa and I didn't find any good I created my own.

My daughter loved this. I helped her write her letter and glue a picture of what she wanted in the box. You could have them color a picture there or copy and paste a picture directly into the file on the computer. Add a stamp, return address and put it in the mail and make all your little ones dreams come true.

Download the file by right clicking on the image, choosing "save as" in the menu and saving the document to your own computer. Printing it as an 8.5 by 11 page works best. It isn't too late to get it in the mail, but be advised it probably will be returned to you;)

Merry Christmas to all. Enjoy.
