Finally, bows that connect to each other to MIX AND MATCH! They also connect to my headbands for a dainty look when they don't have much hair, a clippie for when they have a little bit more hair, and a barrette so they can wear it over their ponytail. Mix and match and create just the look you're going for!

Snow Anyone?

It's been snowing here for what seems like forever! We have about 18 inches outside and it's snowing again. I know I know if I were from Colorado or Utah this would be no big deal....but for Missouri it's CRAZY! The roads are plowed very well so we're kinda stuck at home. What have we been doing to fill our time? Popcorn, hot chocolate, and lots of games and movies! It's great!! I've also been getting bow sets in order to be sold in stores....finding the store in the snow should be interesting! :)

Keep your suggestions and orders coming! Have a GREAT snow day! :)

these are some of the bows in my shop. Click HERE to see my online store

From a Child's Eyes

Oooo that title sounds deep! I just had to share a funny thing. Today is my sweet hubby's b-day and so to celebrate I made the BEST EVER Ice Cream Cake!! It tasted very much like Dairy Queen's but a little less waxy! I was very impressed with myself and so was my family! So....Hubby and I were eating our pieces and savoring every bite and our 3yr. old was asking his daddy for bites every 3 seconds or so. (must be good right?!) Finally Daddy said, "Whoa dude, you need to go slower!" My son turns to him and says, "pppppllllllleeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaasssssseeeeeeeeee cccccaaaaannnnnn iiiiiiiiii hhhhhaaaaavvvvveee mmmmooooooorrrrrreeeee?!" LOL He followed directions....sorta.

My Distraction from Destruction Tip for the day:

Have you ever said to your kids, "please follow directions" and they look at you like, "what are you talking about?" You might as well be speaking chinese! Well, mine give me that look from time to time so we have practice time!! We play a game called "Follow Directions." It's a lot like Simon Says but a little different. Have the child(ren) get excited about playing a game. Get to their level and give them instructions like the following:
"Follow directions.....put your hand on your nose."
"Follow Direction....put your knee on the floor." "GOOD!!"
"Follow directions.....but your hand on your head." "GREAT!"
"Follow directions.....wiggle your fingers." "Hooray! You followed directions so well!!!"

Praise them and love them and just have fun with it. Maybe next time they will understand the meaning of the words instead of just looking at you funny! :)
Have a great day!!

New Year and New Goals

Hey folks, I'm back!! I've decided to try something new here. Aside from the random sales and deals you'll find here you'll also have a new blog to stalk! That's right! I'm a mother of 3 ages 3, 2, and almost 1, there's always something going on here!! I've started my own preschool for my kiddos and I call it "Distraction from Destruction Preschool." I have
two little boys what more can I say?

So my "Distraction from Destruction" idea for the day is:

Spend time getting to know your kids. Get off facebook, turn off the computer, give up the headphones, and PLAY with your kids. This wasn't easy for me because of my longing for contact with the outside world! My sweet hubby works hard for our family and he just started a new job in a new town. It can be pretty lonely here at times a
nd it seemed like all I wanted to do was be on the computer and m
ake sure there were still other people around! Finally I realized that my children were not happy, my house was not happy, and I was definitely not happy. So I had my sweet hubby change my password to my Facebook so that only he knows it and I am making more of an effort to get to know my children. I still get on t
he computer but I'm happy to say I'm over my addiction! I have seen the light! :) It has changed my life completely around! I actually look forward to being with my children because I know what they want to do or why they are doing what they are doing.

What are YOU going to do today? Here are some ideas:

1. get out the board games! Even if you think they are too small ju
st try it. My kids love Rummikub because of all the colors and they like matching the numbers.
2. Go for a walk inside or outside and point out things that are interesting to you. We go for color hunts, they like to say "Chugga chugga BLUE BLUE" and point to anything blue.
3. Get out the play dough. I have learned more about what my kids want to do
and what they like through play dough than I ever though possible!

Most of all try to remember to have fun, you your self have to become a kid again!

Have a GREAT day!

Teenagers, Hard Headbands, and Christmas Bows

Hard Headbands!!
I did a few bows for my teenage sisters and they LOVED them! Then they saw the hard headbands I'd been working on and decided they needed some as well! So here are a few bows I made and put with headbands (but don't forget that all of my bows connect to my headbands and clips so you can mix and match.) Hard plastic head bands are covered by fabric for comfort and come in the following colors: white, black, red, hot pink, bubble gum pink, baby pink, baby blue, turquoise blue, dark purple, light purple, brown, and more just ask!
Notice the same top bow and headband just different bottoms!

They're Here!!! Christmas pics!
Check out my ribbon selection by clicking on the link or by clicking on the page at the top of the blog. Here are a few pictures of orders I've had so far.

Work in progress

I've been trying different things on my blog. I tried the paypal on directly from my blog for a little bit and that seemed to just be confusing to people. I've tried to link this to my ETSY shop but haven't had enough response through it to make it worth keeping, and now I'm trying paypal directly through email. So far it's worked GREAT! Tell me what you prefer! Leave me a comment or email me at

Keep those great ideas coming!!! Thanks for keeping me busy! Tell your friends!

Have a great day!

Custom Designs

I've been doing a few custom orders this week and it's been so much fun! I have a ton of new ribbons and a bunch of new ideas!
So here's a thought for you, pick out 3-5 of your daughter's favorite outfits and challenge me to make a 6 bow set to match ALL of them! I'm up for the challenge, it's FUN! :)
Here's one of my favorites that I'll share with ya. We were looking for pink and green, pink and brown, and PINK combos.
This is only a few of the possibilities! You decide how it should be!

Grow your OWN bow! :)

CHECK IT OUT! I've posted a page with my ribbon selection. Now you can choose what colors YOU want! Don't worry I'll still have ready-made packages so if you're not feeling creative you can leave it to me.

How to order:
1.Choose what color(s) you would like
2. Decide which level bow you want it to be (top, middle, base)
3. Email me at and I'll create a link for you to check out.

Price: $3.50/individual bow or $8.00 for a set of 3.

*note: please allow 7-10 days to ship.

Why create your own bow? Maybe you've all ready bought some of my bows and you have plenty green middle bows but need a pink middle bow to mix and match for more variety, or you just need a few more toppers to match the bows you all ready mix and match with. You decide what you need.
