It's Filling Up

This post is for you Amberly
Most days Lily has something in her hair. Whether it be a bow, clip, headband, ponytail, or just food from her last meal. I went to a "girls day" at my mom's house and my sisters and I had fun making flowers and bows to clip into each of our little girls' hair. I noticed when I got home and put the new additions onto her board that it is filling up.
I love making these for lily, it is so much fun. aren't they so cute! My new favorite that I made at girls day was this BYU bow.
Since I bought the whole spool of BYU ribbon and don't really have much use for the rest of it, I made my sister-in-law Amber some matching bows for her two girls as well. (she is the only other BYU fan I know of that would use them) If you want one let me know.
FYI, the bows I make are tiny compared to the bows my friends make. If you look at the giant flowers at the top of the board, you will see the size most of them make. (I made those with my achievement day girls) It is such a weird trend here right now. I absolutely hate the giant bow/giant flower look. Sorry if I offended any of you, I just don't like that the focal point is the flower not the child. little girls, not just babies wear them too. here are some examples I found on google:
Oh look! There's a baby under that flower!

I love that you just say it, ya know that you hate those bows. People always seem to react all hurt when you don't like something they like, whats the big deal? We all have different opinions, we can still be friends. You should plan Spain for next year but over the break in Feb. I get every year!!!!

I completely agree! Flowers that big make babies look like potted plants. The bows you made are super cute!!

Michelle said...

i agree completely. can't wait to have a girl so i can dress he cute and simple. but maybe those flower bows would work for me, take some attention away from my face :)

Michelle said...

I can't wait, so I can dress her. I'm gonna go take a nap now.

I bet Micah would like a BYU bow for Eliza. They are darling and I can't wait to dress her up when we get there to see her.

Just stumbled acrossed your blog and I died laughing at your toilet story. That is totally something that would happen to me.
I just had to smile at your french memo board of hairbows. I have 1 boy and 2 girls and I have been trying to figure out a better system for the bows, currently they are pouring out of every cupboard, drawer and closet...if I used your method, I'd need about 20 french memo boards. lol
PS, I'd love a BYU hairbow to add to my obsession. :)

Your bows are so cute! I am so relieved to know that someone feels the same way I do about the enormouse flowers!!! I especially don't like the gigantic headbands with the even bigger flowers... We find out in a week what we're having and we really think it's a girl. So, can I come to the next bow party too please??
