I am in love...with a T3i....

So I have ALWAYS ALWAYS wanted to do some sort of photography. Always. I mean it's been sorta a passion. Plus it comes in handy to have great pictures when you run your business, right?

So I have been saving and saving like I did when I was like 6 to get this baby doll that was the coolest baby doll you could buy. But my new doll is not quite as cheap as the one at 6 years old.  Saturday, hubby calls me and tells me to go to the store, buy my camera I want, give him what I had saved, and he'd take care of the rest. AWESOME! :) I love him...

And now I LOVE my new Canon t3i! Anyways, I have taken some pics of some pretties as well as my pretty little Breezy girl (and "B" my little model 6 month old cutie I babysit!) Thought I would share some of them...

Oh yeah...I had to add this as a side...because I love it. :)

BreezyBug's Crazy Workspace!

Ooookay. So my workplace is definitely the definition of organized chaos. I know where everything is, but I don't think anyone else would...which is weird, because I have my degree in elementary ed, where you HAVE to be organized. I also keep my house super organized. But my creativity gets loose, and my small kitchen workshop goes crazy!!

Whats better than your Keurig right next to your glue gun to start the day?? :)

Addressed and ready to ship pile!

Box cutter, scissors, marker, clohespin...essential in bow making :)

Ahhhh! Buttons, pearls, beads...can't get enough! :)

This, my friends, is what I use most! My plethera of satin!

Fabric, broadcloth,

Annnnd this is usually how is ends up after a day of bow making! :)

My lovely basket of business card, headbands, and feathers...sigh...I really do try to keep things organized!

All of my stuff is on top of my washer and dryer until I need it. I create in my kitchen. We have a spare room I could use, but since I have a little one and I watch another little one during the day, I have to stay near them. (Although sometimes I want to close myself in a room all by myself!) :) :)

So there you have it! This is my BreezyBug workspace!!

The Power of Creation

I often have people ask me why I create.  Why do I do what I do?

Obviously, my first response is my beautiful daughter, my amazing inspiration. I love her more than words can express.  I have had a bazillion hair things for her since she was in my belly.  I spent lots of money finding the perfect hair thing to match her outfits.  One day I decided that maybe...just maybe...I can make this stuff myself.  I took a quick trip to Hobby Lobby, and I have been hooked ever since! BreezyBug Boutique has been such a blessing to me since August, and I am so happy to be growing and getting better at this craft.  I am always striving to learn new things and I love getting new ideas!

My second response would be, making hair pretties is a passion!  It gets me pumped up every time I start on something new.  In a lot of ways it is a release.  It makes me forget about bad days.  I get so excited to hear good reviews.  I love getting orders.  I don't need to make millions, I just LOVE doing this.

I am lucky to have such an amazing husband.  One that will tell me a million times a day that "that is so cute!" even if he has no idea or does not really care so much about hair accessories.  One that helped me with the money to start this passion turned business. I am lucky to have such a BEAUTIFUL inspiration of a daughter. I am just.plain.lucky.

I can't begin to tell anyone enough how much I love this little business called BreezyBug Boutique. Days I get discouraged, I just have to continue to remind myself that this is what I love to do, and to have fun with it! Remind myself that I do it for my own little BreezyBug, as well as my sanity! :)

So...what is your inspiration? Why do you do what you do?
Here is my pretty 17 month old inspiration :)
