Ready for Ruby!

So much has happened in the month of May so far! We are almost all unpacked thank goodness but mostly I have learned that there’s so many things I can no longer do being 37 weeks pregnant. I can’t move furniture or take lots of trips up and down to the basement. I am just ready for this little lady to get here already!  Hopefully, Ruby comes soon so we can have some sort of order to our lives.

Also, as many of you have seen on our Facebook page, the etsy shop will be closed the first 2 weeks of June. That being said, there will also be no sale in the month of June. If you need something custom made, tell me now. My husband and I want to be able to solely focus on our little girl.

If you have any questions for me please don’t hesitate to contact me off of the webpage or shoot me an email at bowsnpiggys@gmail.com.

Remember to follow us on Facebook to get the scoop and head over to my etsy page to take advantage of the 15% off coupon. If you see a piggy bank you like and want to add a child’s name. I can totally do that for you at no extra charge! They make great birthday presents as well as Preschool and Kindergarten graduation gifts!


Email opt in

The next step in my journey is to figure out how to do an email opt in. This has been very hard for me, I have tried a few websites but the issue is that they want to use my personal information to send out to anyone and everyone. Not cool! I want to continue to have my company flourish, as well as offer incentives for people to sign up. I am unsure of what I can do to start this next step but I am looking into it. I will keep you posted in the following days. Any suggestions are welcome!


Leaving the Bubble

Thanks for joining me on this crazy adventure!

I am not sure what I was thinking to start this crazy journey and leave my bubble. For the past five years, I have stuck to craft shows and my etsy page, but one day I woke up and said today I am going to leave my bubble and start a website. I don’t know the first thing about building a website but I am sure it is like building a great hair bow. First, you start with what you know….the basics. To build a great bow/website, you must start with the basics like tutorials or an online class. This doesn’t happen over night but takes lots of trial and error so please bear with me. Like any good hair bow you need a solid foundation, a strong ribbon or sturdy fabric and a clip or headband. I am learning the same is true of a website, you need an easy to use domain that allows you to be pliable and expressive. Something that will help your foundation grow stronger as you build it up.

I am sure none of this makes sense to you but remember, I am still learning about all of this. All I know is over the past five years I have learned how to make a killer hair bow and adorable hand painted piggy banks.
