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!


Lots happening this month!

Lots happening this month!

I started a new project for the little boys in our lives. I am working on ties and bowties attached to onesies for our favorite little guys. Who says that they can’t be stylish too. I am hoping that they will be ready to sell by the end of May.

Spring birthdays are also happening right now. Know someone celebrating a birthday soon? Head on over to my Etsy page and grab a crown 👑 for them or a special custom made piggy bank 🐷. If you sign up on the link you can receive a coupon for 10% off your next purchase. Sign up today and go find a great birthday gift! Piggy banks also make great baby shower gifts. (I know because I am due in 8 weeks). I can custom make them to a theme or color coordinate them to a nursery.

On top of this new project I have signed up for the Morton Grove and Marengo Farmers Markets. I have included the dates I will be in attendance at the bottom.

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.
