It's 98 degrees at my house today. Too hot. AC has been running since we got home from the park at noon. I feel bad about that. I don't like running the AC since it uses a lot of power. But otherwise I think I might die. It's just finally starting to feel bearable in here. I have all the fans running too. The AC should kick off soon, it's set to get the house down to 76 or so.

I had no idea how hot it was supposed to be today or I would not have scheduled a play date at a park with no shade. Poor Amelia was coated head to toe in sun screen. She was bright red by the time we left the park, she's just like her Mama, gets warm and turns red. LOL She went back to her normal color once we were home in the AC for a while.

So I think I may have come up with something to do as a little side business. It's not much right now, but it's fun! I bought a kit that has instructions to make hair bows. All sorts of bows, and ribbons and barrettes. If nothing else, they are fun little projects I can make for Amelia. I'm having fun making them. And it's way cheaper to pay $1 for materials, than to pay $8 a piece for little bows for her hair. Anyway, if I still enjoy it in a few weeks, I may see about starting to sell them.

Where did you buy your kit? I want to get one to make them for Peanut too. she keeps on losing them! *sigh* I tried making some on my own and they are taking forever. So, if the instruction for the kit you got is easy, I would love to get one too.

Great idea! You could open an Etsy store (etsy.com) and sell them there. Then you could just advertise your little shop on your blog and maybe some of your readers will buy bows. Also try selling some on eBay?

Thank you for the link, I will have to try out their kit. Hope we get to see some pictures of the bows you made :).
