About

The work is hands on and tedious.

I've been into crafting all types of different things my entire life. I get a vision for something and brainstorm how to make that something happen. It's actually funny that my sisters were making bows before I was. I thought it was mundane. I simply could not make a basic run-of-the-mill bow. I could not make my hands put it together.

We were preparing for a crafts festival and hair bows were on our list. I needed to make a contribution somehow so I started researching. Now, before I go any further I would like to say that I have always been intrigued by "mini" items. By that I mean anything that is a miniature version of something that is supposed to be normal size, if that makes sense. Upon my research, I begin seeing many "ribbon sculptures" that are essentially miniatures of a normal item. Ice cream, animals, flowers, princesses, etc. WOW! I'm hooked. I wanted to create these and then I start thinking of how to create other characters and items and...STUFF. I found my own niche in an area I never thought I'd enjoy. These bows and ribbon sculptures are so adorable and are not only for people but pets too!

Through this process other bow designs came about like the "loop bow" and then I started adding in headbands and then I eventually got the "basic bow" under my belt as well! It's all a part of staying consistent with something and it is actually forgiving and somewhat relaxing other than the occasional burn with the hot glue.
