Bows, bows and more bows

I had forgotten just how much I love making bows. It's been over a year since I made one.

Until this week.

And I have made roughly 40.

I have had lots of past customers, 1 VERY persistent Twitter friend and numerous small children that live under this roof asking for bows.

I caved. And I am so glad I did.

I uploaded some of the bows I made to my Flickr page. But here is one that I made last night that I absolutely LOVE.

It's not really a bow. But I like it. And it's made of ribbon.

Sorry for the poor photo quality. It’s been overcast here and I had to use the flash. Bleh.

In other news, I have been painting the walls in our house. See, I have 2 little girls who like to draw messes all over the freaking walls mommy beautiful pictures on the walls. You know, because they don’t have enough coloring books. Since when is 498,289 coloring books not enough?

To their defense though, our walls only have primer on them. The brainiacs that painted this place when we moved in didn’t finish the job. Have you ever tried to get marker/crayon/highlighters off of PRIMER only walls. Yeah… it ain’t pretty. I went through at least, AT LEAST 5 magic erasers on 1 little teeny tiny spot behind my desk. Good Lord it would take me long and cost more to do the whole house.

Sooooo I’m just painting over it.

With semi-gloss. :)

AND since our crown moulding is white, our base boards are white and we have tile throughout the house, guess whose job just got easier?? WOOT! Can you say easy cleanup??


Update. I found a picture of one of the walls with the “art” on it. Check this out.

No, no, no, no. I said persistent. NOT pushy. :)
