I have always had a love of crafting. When I was little, my sister and I would take the scraps left over from projects our mother did and turn them into Barbie clothes. Of course, we sewed them right around Barbie so undressing her became a bit of a challenge. But she was never naked!
Four years ago, I became a single mother of one with one on the way. To say I was scared would be an understatement. But I knew I had to do something. Armed with a box of ribbon someone had given me, I began to make hair bows. A few days later, I sold $42 worth to a boutique and I was in business. I have to admit, some of the bows were not the best. But Caroline, the owner of Annie Em’s Children’s Shop in Wilson, NC, saw something else. I asked her a year later, why she had even bought some of those bows. They were so ugly! Her response? I knew you needed it. And I could see the potential. Thank you Caroline!…
