Crafting FTW

A few days ago, I received one of the most heartwarming emails I have ever gotten. It was from a customer from my store who was just dropping a line to tell me about how much she and her friends have enjoyed the goodies from the shop. At the end of her message she told me that she appreciated my crafting, and I just about melted. (Which is weird, because if you know me, then you'd be aware of my ice queen tendencies. I'm not unfriendly, just cold. And mean. But only if you don't know me. heh.)

Crafting has definitely been a source of great happiness and comfort for me. It eases my mind after a long and unrewarding day at work, and it gives me a sense of accomplishment. So despite my tiredness and crankiness, I finally busted out some fabric and made some bows (pins will come later!). Thanks to my lovely supporters, I will be crafting forever!!!!!

If you're a bow fanatic, like moi, then now's the best time to stock up on them. Clicky click on the photos and links to take you to my fabtastic bow sale!

Pick 3 bows for $8.75
Pick 5 bows for $12.75

Take your pick from 21 different styles:


  1. That's so awesome - as you know, I am a HUGE fan of your fabulous crafting skills.

    Courtney ~

  2. That is such a sweet message, crafting is my way of escaping from the world.

  3. you have awesome skills and even more awesome that you're sharing it!!

  4. adorable, a must for my 8 year old ;-)

  5. Your bows are impressive I can't pull anything off with a needle and thread.


  6. I still don't believe you're an ice queen, no lying to me ;P That is a sweet message, though, and entirely true. I love my pins from you to pieces as well as my seal pup scarf (which I wore when it wasn't very cold because we lacked winter, but I needed to show it off)

  7. I shall check this out when I get home :)


    PS, I'm having a giveaway on my blog if you're interested :)

  8. Laura, isn't it wonderful to have our talents recognized? I think the fact that this email prompted you to get, ahem, a little emotional, means you're have a soft, gooey center. And that's a wonderful thing! Your bows are fabstatic! :)

  9. It's the best feeling in the world to know that your work is appreciated and has meaning to someone! Those bows are super cute.

  10. Love it when people appreciate your work. It's such a great feeling isn't it?! I get that once in a while...and when I do I'm beaming from ear to ear. Crafting is definitely a way to "get away" from everything for me too...not that I need to get away. The bows are too cute so many to pick from! And the pins in your etsy shop have such amazing detail!!

  11. Signs of appreciation are always good :) I didn't even know you had a store! Such cute bows :) and P.S I'm cold too :p

  12. That is so nice! I'm a firm believer in letting people know you appreciate them (or their awesome crafts, in this case ;)

  13. That's so totally deserve a letter like that!! All your bows are so unique and cute!!

  14. Hahaha! Cold and mean, but loves her bows! Perfect combo me thinks ;) (Not that you ever come across as either cold or mean). I'm so glad crafting brings you that calm, accomplished feeling, Laura! I totally need to find the same thing -- I'm rubbish with needle and thread though.
    Hope you are having a fabuloso week so far!

  15. what a heart warming message. You are really creative and talented and a bow expert.


  16. I am now convinced that we have to be IRL friends as well as blogger friends. I also suffer from chronic bitchface and am really really cold. We could get together every week at Pho 32 with Nnenna and practice our glares on unsuspecting diners, haha.


your comments make my day. thanks! ♥
