As you probably know from my siggy, I make hairbows. I love it but it's been on hold because I've been evoting lots of time to scrapbooking lately.
Well, my friends daughter is a junior in high school & she's on the cheerleading squad & also does competitive cheerleading, travels all over, etc. She asked if I would be willing to make the team's bows for this season & make some other ones for the competitions!
Of course I said yes! So her daughter calls out of the blue on Wed. and says her & her friend are coming over bringing ribbon & pony elastics. Fine, they come over, we decide on a style, etc. and she asks if they could be done the next day (Thurs.). I said maybe, how many? She tells me 25! I was like what?! LOL So we decided that today would be ok (before the football game) so I have been working a LOT this last day and a 1/2 to get these done. It is hard because of the soccer games in the evening and everything else going on. Plus I can only do it when Layla is sleeping, she would have ribbon & glue & everything else- everywhere!
It turned out ok though, I just told her in the future that a week's notice would be better, lol. I am actually sore in my back & neck.

They are coming to get them today so I got them all ready to go! It will be good for business too + I get some extra money ($75!!). I am so excited!

And my brother sent my birthday card (late) yesterday and put a $20 gift card to Michael's in there!

Here are pics of the bows

not the greatest pic, they're really pretty in person

all done!
