My best friend, her boutique, and a GIVE AWAY!!!

This is my best friend Sarah and I at our high school reunion.

It feels like we have been friends since the beginning of time...
or maybe since 6th grade.

Don't we look hot at our 8th grade graduation?
Or at our siblings high school graduation?

Sarah and I have weathered a few storms, but this is not about our friendship 
or how God has united our hearts time and time again.

This post is about her business venture.

She is a stay at home mom who started making hair bows which led to flip flops which led to teaming up with another lady for embroidery projects which led to teaming up with her mom for the creation of The Butterfly Bowtique (formerly Hairbows by Sarah).

She embroidered my diaper bag.
(sorry this is not a great picture)


Recently she sent me these cute little gifts.



However, The Butterfly Bowtique does more than design and embroider baby items.
They embroider purses, bags, towels, pillow case dresses, key chains, polo shirts, T-shirts, etc.
Sarah continues to make hair bows, head bands, and flip flops.

Shelby and Sydney are Sarah's precious little gals. 
Of course, they are wearing Butterfly Bowtique products.



Sarah's son Seth is also sporting a Butterfly Bowtique T-shirt
to support his cousin D.J. who plays football.


























The Butterfly Bowtique motto is
"If you can dream it, we will at least try to do it."

I am GIVING AWAY a $15 gift certificate that can be applied to any item from

I've been a "fan" of Hairbows by Sarah for sometime and I LOVE the Little Butterfly Bowtique. Don't count this as an entry because that wouldn't be fair to others who are just being introduced! I want to let everyone know that Sarah and her mother do top quality work on top quality products and they are both super sweet, good people too!!!

My Life said...

Im not posting for the give away just to say that The butterfly Bowtique is AWESOME. I have lots of items and we LOVE them all. So I encourage everyone to checkout all her products and order something you will not be disappointed.

ooo...what a fun giveaway!! I need an overnight tote for Stafford's clothes etc. This weekend when we went I packed it in a leopard print, hot pink monogrammed bag. I do not think that is what Stafford wants his clothes in :)
