About

The name of our shop says it all!

It really does.

When I was my daughter's age (11), I was just figuring out what I was interested in. I tried dancing and soccer and softball and swimming. I tried it all. But it wasn't until Junior High when I really found my calling in sports. I played pretty much anything and everything through school and excelled at most of them. So of course I expected, or assumed, my daughter would follow in my footsteps and be just like me.

Well, it became painfully obvious early on that my daughter did not take after me in the athletics department. She was a girly girl which was, and still somewhat is, foreign to me. So when she wanted to go into Cheerleading, I was a little confused and hesitant. What do you mean cheerleading? Don't you just go on the sidelines at some sports game and shake your pompoms? Well, for all you cheer moms out there, safe to say I got an earful after that comment.

So here I am, a supportive (and now properly educated in all that is cheer) reluctant cheer mom. I made some bows for her and started to play around with different styles and materials. Being the nerd that I am, I of course wanted to make them more complex and custom as I went along. A lot of her cheer friends got bows gifted to them which they really liked so I thought, why not make some more and see if people wanted to buy them!

I really hope you like them and can appreciate my journey to get here.
