Drowning in BOWS!

For the next three weeks I will be almost literally drowning in bows. July 9th is the Stroud International Brick and Rolling Pin Festival. It's really kind of a neat little celebration.

The festival is held between the four townships of STROUD in Canada, UK, USA and Australia. Here in Stroud, OK the festival starts with a parade, then there are competitions such as a rolling pin throw, brick toss, brick decorating contest, pie making and eating contest, a pageant, the list goes on.

There are also bands that play throughout the day, vendors, last year we had a car show and a pony ride. It's a really unique festival and fun for the whole family!

Anyway, this will be my first time setting up as a vendor. I've been making sure I have everything I need over the last couple of weeks and will be working on my inventory up through the 9th. I'm pretty sure I'll be drowning in bows and tutus at that point. I certainly hope to see lots of people out at the festival and I can't wait to meet customers, new and old!

Dazzling Divas in their Diva Dazzle Bows

I’m so very pleased to be able to introduce a new line of bows in my shop! My inspiration for this line was my little girl…as usual. But, more specifically the pageant princess side.  While we were attending her state pageant a couple of weekends ago I found myself glancing at accessories when we weren’t on the stage.  

Shocking Blue Zebra Diva Dazzle Bow

To my surprise I found a limited amount of fun and sparkling designs for accessories. And what little girl doesn’t want to sparkle? I decided right then and there that I was going to work on a design that would look great for pageants AND also for everyday outfits.

Sparkler Diva Dazzle Bow

These adorable Diva Dazzle Bows were what I came up with! Made with yards of ribbons and accents of tulle, sequined trim, and other fun and funky materials; they have enough BLING for the stage and are fun and funky enough for everyday wear.  

Girls can wear one in a ponytail or in a half up style OR they can wear two as pigtail bows for some extra dazzle! I can’t wait to come up with more and more beautiful combinations for these fun bows.

I have every hope that your little divas will love them as much as mine do! I can’t wait to see the customer pics of Dazzling Divas in their Diva Dazzle Bows!!!

Thank you for reading my shameless self promotion :)
