Bows, Brownies, New Moon & Slumber Parties!!

Mmm mmm mmm...Cookie dough brownies...fantastic! (D, Ry & Jill-e just made some and we just got done stuffing our faces!)

Having a slumber party with my two favorite girls tonight! B & Jill-e, my 11 & 8 year old nieces. Not only are they a HUGE help watching/playing with my kiddos but they are also a big help with my bows! B and I just sat at the table and completed an order of 17 bows and one sunshine bow holder! (came out pretty darn cute if you ask me!) She helps me organize all the ribbon & embellishments that I need and it really does save me a lot of time! (had to take breaks here and there cracking up at J & R singing..."holdddd stillllllll, wiggle wiggle wiggle, wiggle wiggle wiggle...")

So a while back I asked them each to pick out 5 of their favorite ribbons and I set up 2 listings in my shop. "B's favorite set of bows" and "Jill-e's favorite set of bows". B's has sold twice and we're still waiting on Jill-e's first sale!! (feel free to make her day!) I was trying to explain to them what "blogging" was before I started this post and asked them if they wanted to write a little something tonight...they were all for it! So here it goes....

Presenting Miss "B":

"Hi my name is ''B'' and i am 11 years old i love yoga and love beading. My aunts bows rock they match with everything. My friends always ask were did u get those cute bows. There are so many different types for ribbon my fav is the bees. For my birthday my aunt made twilight bows for my TEAM EDWARD Edward rules"
- "B''

Presenting Jill-e : (hold on while I pry her away from her popcorn & New Moon)

"Hi my name is Jillian but people call me Jill-e.I am 8 years old . I love sports especially lax (it stands for lacrosse ). Actually I love my ants bows and how they match each and every one of my outfit . TEAM JACOB RULES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

How cute are they? B is already asking me to set up her own blog when I'm done. "It's like an online diary!" :)

Giveaway time...I am so excited to have 16 entries and hope I get a bunch more before next Thursday. Thanks to all of you who have entered and remember to spread the word...anyone can enter!! A BIG special thanks goes out to Erin at Jackaroo for helping me promote my giveaway on her blog & pages! THANKS ERIN! (btw, I have some of their burp cloths... absolutely adorable!! Love them!)

Oh and just an update on Ry...going to see an Allergist (hopefully this week) bc NOW it may not be a real peanut allergy! UGH! Lovin' this roller coaster my life is ;)

Welp, guess that's about it for tonight. Big thanks to my awesome nieces for their special guest appearance!

gnite :)
