Hope that makes sense. It's pretty stinkin' cute, if I do say so myself. Plus it feels like good value since the mom gets 3 bows for the price of 1.
We are all workin' on the same stuff!
I like the sounds of your first one (this lady doesn't want too fru fru). Do you have a photo? I forgot about the waterlily. I should try that.
I played around with ribbon tonight and I didn't like how things turned out. I am frustrated. I looked at my notes of what she wanted and realized that she also wants a black, pink, and white flower (silk flower). I don't have any black flowers. What am I going to do? Plus, I only have two days left to get ready for this huge bow party. I need to work on stocking up my inventory instead of playing around!! I am frustrated right now. I think I just might make a few things and give her a choice and hope she likes some of them!
