How a 7 Year Old Changed Me

I cannot tell a lie, I was not fond of making the hair bows I had advertised last week.  I saw them, wanted to try making them, put it on Facebook & BOOM! an old school friend wanted 6 custom hair bows for her 7 year old daughter.  Awesome! I thought.  I’ll get the ribbon needed & knock these puppies out.  Well not that easy.  They involve many more steps than an elastic hair tie or a headband.  I figured while I was doing it why not make a bunch.  16 bows later I was regretting my choices.  That is until I drove over to their house on Sunday.  Brooke, Terri’s daughter, came to the door with her long, blonde, curly hair  & I thought, yep this girl needs a bow.  I pulled them out of my bag & her face lit up with pure joy & happiness at receiving these custom bows.  Definitely a priceless moment for me.  I was a changed woman.  That look was worth every step involved in making those bows.  I couldn’t have imagined a better reaction.

We sat down at the dining room table, so her mom & I could chit chat. We hadn’t seen each other in probably 15 years, since life at Georgia Southern.  Brooke continued to show her excitement for this string of bows I had brought.

She then brought out all the elastic hair ties & headbands they had already purchased.  I loved seeing this reaction to a product I had made & believe in.  The next thing I heard was music to my ears.  Terri told me Brooke didn’t like having ponytail holders put in her hair, but now she loves these soft, elastic hair ties.  Brook then perks up, “yea mom don’t put those other ponytail holders in my hair anymore, only these.”  MADE MY DAY!!   I agree with Brooke, I only use Georgia Dragonfly elastic hair ties.

You’ll notice she has 7 bows in the picture above.  I had to give her a signature dragonfly bow when she was counting out the days of the week & came up one short.  She then asked if I could make a bow out of the ribbon I had pinned them all on.  This is one little girl, who loves girly stuff.  I LOVE IT!!
