Smile In a rut, need ideas please!

Ok, I was on a roll with bow making for Christmas and then I made some valentines ones for my dd's preschool class (9 girls). Now, I am not sure how to proceed. I love making the headbands too. I need some direction for springtime bows! Do you guys plan what critters you want to make and other bows etc, then buy those supplies, or do you buy a bunch of colors that you like and go from there? I can't decide what I want to do, princesses, headbands, korkers all seem appealing.... Any ideas on how to stop stalling and make a plan for springtime bow making?

I'mnot good at this either, I buy ribbon and go from there, probably not the best way but since I only sell to a very small amount of people I kinda know what size bows sell and I know some people like dots and ect. Anyway I know I am not much help but I thought I would let you know your not the only one stalling!!!

Card tables work great for that !

I pick my colors. All spring colors, then base colors. (black, white, tan) Then go from there! Spring is bugs, princesses, big loppy bows with bright fresh colors in them. When I start to make them- it takes me a bit to get into a grove- but after that- it's all nonstop bow making!
