Sunrise rant of sorts

I normally hate getting up early in the morning, absolutely hate it. It's too early, it's too cold, and I am not a happy camper. Though, yesterday I pulled an all-nighter (stayed up for about 23 hours) and went to Grand Rapids with my mother. On the way there I caught the most beautiful sunrise. It reminded me how lovely it is in the morning, and made me want to start waking up earlier. Thus, I  got up at 6:15am this morning.

Bow Hair clips

I've been making lots of bows lately, I love them. Bow hair clips are the cutest! It takes me about 10 to 15 minutes to make each set, and I can make a lot of them out of a single skein. So, that allows me to be able to sell them 3 for $5. It's a good deal, for both me, and my customers. :)

Make sure to look for them in my shop!
