feel free to send them along to me.

This past week was my darling daughter's 3rd birthday.

We celebrated on the day of her birthday

with a Rapunzel cake and cupcakes

and then celebrated over the weekend

with a big Toy Story Western party at Mimi and Pop Pop's house/pool.

We love birthdays in this house!

Since we love birthdays SO much...

Storing Bows

Lots of people ask me how I store my daughter's hairbows.

When she was first born, I had a cute basket on the dresser that held the bows,

then I made more bows...

So I got a bigger basket,

then I made more bows...

We had SO many bows that they were getting all squished in the baskets.

So I got my creative juices flowing...

I took a plastic hanger from her closet,

cut 4 long strips of ribbon,

folded them over the bottom part of the hanger,

hot glued them to the hanger so the ribbons didn't slide,

and then hot glued the ends together.

Then I began the overwhelming job of clipping on all

325+ hairbows that my daughter has.

If you have closet space,

this is a great option because it allows you to see all the bow options

and they don't end up getting squished in a basket or bin.

One other tip...

When we travel, I roll up strips of paper towels

and put them in the bow loops so they don't get squished.

Then they don't look like they've been in a suitcase for hours.

I also put the bows in a tupperwear container in my suitcase -

this gives them extra protection from other items in the suitcase.

Notice in the above picture -

I removed the bows from the far right ribbon so you could see how it was made.

Pool is Open!

The pools are open and the sun is shining!

We are thrilled that Mimi and Pop Pop have a nice big

pool in their backyard this year that we can all enjoy!

I have always liked having a bow in my daughter's hair

when she's in the pool or around water because otherwise,

it's blowing in her face from the breeze or

it's sticking to her face from wet water.

Make sure you've got bows ordered to match your

darling daugher's bathing suits for the summer.

Here are a few examples of ours over the past few years...

NEW ~ Ponytail Streamers

Here is a hot new item that I began making a few weeks ago.

Several people had been asking for these ponytail streamers

so I figured I better get to work!

They are SUPER cute and perfect for an older girl

who still wants ribbons in her hair but not a bow.

These can be made with ANY bottlecap or without a bottlecap.
