Announcing a Winner!

A winner indeed! The winner of my Flowerband Give-Away is Cathy Larson. She is my mom's dear soul-mate and has been in my life for as long as I have been breathing. So come on over Cathy and lets design a headband of your choice!

I have been getting orders and it has been so exciting. I LOVE making them. I did not realize that I was missing the need for a creative outlet in my life.

My friend Kaci Klenk said that she wanted to purchase a Flowerband so that it could be donated to a hospital where young girls are losing their hair due to chemotherapy.

Isn't that an AWESOME idea????? I love it!

Since then, a few more ladies have wanted to join in on the giving and my wheels have been spinning on how to bring this idea to fruition. So stay tuned and I will let you know how this works out!!!!
So I have to show you a picture that I took today:

Yes, I made a flowerband for Minnie's babydoll!


I wish I had a picture of Minnie's face when I handed her the doll. Her big brown eyes lit up and I thought her face would crack from her big goofy smile! The cutest thing was when she brought her dolly to show daddy when he got home. How sweet is that?
So I have been trying to think up a name for this little cottage business. I received some good suggestions, but still taking more. Any more ideas out there?
My wonderful sister-in-law Nancy is making me some price tags with her handy-dandy scrapbooking machine-thing and I am looking into the option of selling the flowerbands on ETSY or creating a website. Or could I put a button on my blog that would lead to post on how to order flowerbands? And do I need a logo? So many things to think about! Its been a really good diversion for me so that I am less focused on the neurological muscle twitches that continue to plague me. .
I do have to say that my Mickey and Minnie get the short end of the stick when I pull out the flowers, nylons, gems, needle, thread and hot-glue gun. I get so inspired about creating that I get a little carried away! (why are the kids so whiny? oh, its 2:00pm .. and we have not had lunch yet!!!! eek)
I am sure that there will be more give-aways in the future!! I will soon be working on some Christmas flowerbands... so maybe that would be a good time!!
Thanks for all your sweet comments!!
