Exciting News & More Pictures

So here are some more pictures of the girls a few days before Valentine's Day. They dressed for the holiday all week (I just love doing things like that, can you tell?!)

Love love love this sweet baby and her smiles! (I think one reason of many of course is that she has been stretching 7 hours at night...Praise Jesus!!!)

Annabelle would not look at the camera of course :) but this is a great lead into my exciting news....The bow in Annabelle's hair I made. I am really enjoying making bows and know several people who do these types of things and sell them and everyone keeps asking me about where Adelyn gets her hats and soooooooooooo I am going to start selling little girls accessories. I should have the site up soon!! Some examples of things I am going to sell are here:

3 inch and 5 inch polka dotted and non polka dotted bows



Also crochet hats for infants, toddlers, and adults

Also, monogrammed items like the shirt Adelyn has on it with her name on it, covered clips with embellishments and more!!

I'll be honest, I was and still am a little nervous about doing this. I am selling from a site so I will not be bombarding people, you can just look on the site and order what you want. It is a big investment in the beginning but I feel this is an opportunity the Lord wants me to take so here goes! The site should be up in a week or so! I would love any information, encouragement :) or words of wisdom from anyone who has ever tried to do something like this or just has advice!

That looks like so much fun! My friend just started selling necklaces and headbands on Etsy and she's having a blast. Are you doing yours on Etsy?

I can't wait! Love, love, love bows :) And you should definitely take this leap of faith. If I were crafty, I definitely would!

First, thanks for commenting on my budget blues post. It made ME feel better to know other people have to put the gourmet coffee back! And you are so right - it's completely worth it to be able to stay home.

Second, go you! I think it's awesome that you are making fun, girly things. I will save my money so I can buy things from you. More importantly, though, I will tell the grandmothers about your site! They don't have to save their money to buy things ;)

Can't wait to see it up and running!
