I've been a very creative person since day one. I guess it's inherited, both my mother and my grandmother did oil painting and all kinds of crafts. I still have fond memories of quietly watching my mom paint for hours when I was five or six.


I learned how to make handmade bows when I worked at a local craft store, and when I lost my job, and was unable to find another one, I decided to use my creative talents and the knowledge that I had learned to start my own shop.
My goal with the bows and related items that I sell, is to make them appealing to all ages and walks of life. Bows aren't just ultra feminine, or stuff from grandma's attic. I try to use materials and techniques that make anyone of any age fall in love with them.





The only advice I can think to give others is "Use what you have!". I started out with practically no money to spare on materials for my shop, so I bought clearance items, I used materials that I already had stored up around my house (I'm a collector), and it's amazing the uses you can find for everyday items.
