wow!! what a birthday

Today was my 27th birthday. I was spoiled all day. It all started with breakfast with my hubby. He took me home and told me to get ready to leave at noon. He picks me up and takes me to a spa where Pastor Mary is waiting to treat me to an afternoon of pampering. I We got manicures, pedicures and had a great lunch.
I can home for a nap :) and then headed out for dinner with Matt & my sister at the Cheesecake Factory. After dinner they surprised me a $200 gift certificate to Miss Jackson's Penthouse Spa. I'm in heaven!!!! I can wait to make an appointment for yet another day of beauty!

I had an absolutely terrific day! Today is also Erin's (the vintage pearl) birthday...happy birthday girlie!

So I've been tagged...

Thanks to pickles and co. for tagging me! Here goes my random nonsense..

  1. I own a successful hair bow business and don't have a little girl...or any children for that matter! I started making bows because the boutique I was working in needed them.

  2. I HATE wet paper. You know, like when you go to a restaurant and they hand you a straw with paper on it and it's wet...that's so nasty to me. And then wet paper towels...totally gross! Matt chased me around the house just last week trying to stick wet paper on me YUCK!!!

  3. It's nearly impossible to keep junk out of the back of our SUV. Right now there so much stuff I can't see the seats.

  4. My ideal vacation spot is anywhere in South Carolina. When I was in Bible College, the nicest people I meet where from there. Weird reason I know...

  5. I can't spell to save y life! Thank goodness for spell check. My math is just as bad too!

  6. I love candles, but never want to light them. I always convince myself that I need to "save" them for some special occasion.

  7. I've watched Willie Wonka & The Chocolate Factory every year since 2nd grade.

There's my random nonsense! Hummm, who should I tag...how about

BirdSong Bows, Bella*Tessa, The Vintage Pearl, Moments with Love, daysnumbrd, funky*monkey, Gourmet Momma

Catching up

Thanks to all my local customers who came out to the craft show. It was great to see you! After the show I just dumped everything in my bow room to deal with another day...today is that day. I've got at least 14 Easter orders to fill and I can't even see my table!

We are wrapping up batch 3 today of the Parker School Uniform Order. Just 4 more batches to go before I can breathe easier! Off to work on bows...

Come see me!

For all you local customers, I will be doing a craft show this Saturday at 9 am. It will be in Broken Arrow at the Arrow Heights Baptist Church. It's at the corner of 101st & Elm St (161st St). My craft show special is buy 5 get 1 free. We'll be having a drawing for free bows or headbands as well. The Broken Arrow Ledger did an article on the event. They had a big picture of the bows and everything :) I will also be on Six in the Morning too! I look forward to seeing my locals!

Hair Candy in the news

The leader of the craft show that I'm doing next Saturday called and asked if I would bring some products to display in an article for the Broken Arrow Ledger, a local newspaper. Granted, it's not a very big publication, but hey- it's free advertisement! The article will be in the Wednesday addition of the paper.

They are also doing a piece on the craft show on channel six. My bows will be part of the promotion. Not sure what day we will be on TV though. Just thought I share with my local customers!

Life update

It's been a while since I updated this blog! Nothing real exciting, but oh, so very busy! The Parker School order is going well. I've got 4 people working on that order for me. Easter orders are pouring in and I only have 1 week to finish them!

Why I signed up for a craft show before Easter, I don't know, but I did! I will be at the Arrow Heights Baptist church on March 15. It's at 101st & Elm in Broken Arrow. I'd love to see some of my local customers there!

I've recently received some questions concerning the bow making classes. I've taken a break from the bow classes for now. All my extra time is spent in my bow room! The plan is to start the classes again in the fall. I have one make up class to do, then I'm taking a break till the fall!

I've haven't mentioned much about our church, but that is the one thing we are passionate about, and the one thing that is all consuming! Matt and I are on the leadership team and we have had a lot of meetings lately. A lot of new changes are coming to the church and we are excited about them!

That's about all for now...no exciting news or cool pictures. I'll see if I can't make the next post more exciting!
