How long have I been blogging and I still cannot seem to understand what pictures and videos will be uploaded in what order. So this is all screwed up according to my original designs...No matter.
I guess you could say I've got some creative juices flowing--well, for my standards, anyway! My friend, Emily, a self-described hobby-junkie, brought over all her bow-making goodies to teach me the skill. Well, she had all these adorable bows she'd already made. I basically copied a few of them. I was feeling rather impressed with my ability to imitate her. Below are the bows I made. (Don't bother enlarging them, they're still terribly blurry.)
Tonight I took a trip to Michael's and picked up some supplies for myself. I tried my hand at a few bows. For some reason, I feel lost without Emily around to guide me and tell me she's not a perfectionist and it's no big deal if it comes out goofy. Not to mention I seemed less coordinated with the hot glue gun! So the ones above are those I did on my own.
I can see how you could get better at this! And it could be addicting. Hopefully they'll improve as I practice more. We'll see. If nothing else, even the semi-dorky ones still look cute in the girls' hair. Ella likes wearing them. If Mira Catherine realizes she's wearing one, there's a good chance it's gonna get ripped out of her hair. I'm expecting to lose a number of bows this way...
