A big thank you!!!

Hey friends!

Wow! I just have to say thank you for all the love and support I've received as I opened my shop on Etsy! It's a really scary thing to sort of put yourself out there with something like this, but I just thought it'd be a fun thing to try. Plus, since it's football season, it's kind of fun to have something to do with all the football that's turned on in our house right now! So I just wanted to say thanks again for all the kind words, compliments, purchases, etc. that I've gotten this week.

As far as some updates go, say hello to the Sunshine Bow!

I also have another pattern that I'll be featuring on my shop probably later today so be sure to keep checking my shop for more updates!

Coming soon: baby/toddler size bows and patterns!

Thanks for all the love everyone, please spread the word if you like what you see!

Love you guys. And that's all. :)

Just Buttons and Bows---Now open!


This is an exciting post for me! You all know that I have a small obsession with sewing, crafting, etc. I've finally decided to take it a step further! I just barely (as in fifteen minutes ago) opened up my first ever "shop" on Etsy! I'm selling fabric hair bows and fabric-covered button earrings! Go here to see my shop! Let me know what you think! Over time I may add some other products, but for now it's Just Buttons and Bows. And that's all :)

Ya know what? I think to celebrate I'll give you all a promo code valid until next Friday, September 28 (Happy Birthday, Lydia!), and you can get 20% off your purchase from my shop! The promo code is "justtheb". Love you all! Happy Buttons & Bows!

*If you like what you see at my shop, please share with friends/family!!!
**You can click the link at the beginning of this post, or you can go to and search "justbuttonsandbows" (no spaces). :)

Have a wonderful night :)

A little input please?

Hey friends :) First of all, HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!! I hope you're all as happy as I am for the weekend. So this is just a quick little post asking for some input from all of you. So as you may know I'm a pretty crafty (not necessarily GOOD at it, but I enjoy it :) and girly person, and I've been thinking about possibly making and selling some fabric covered earrings. If you're confused what that means, here's a photo (I wasn't sure how to describe them :) :

***NOTE: I did not make these. This photo is from the internet. I do not own it. :)

 However, I'm interested to see what kinds of patterns and colors people are interested in. So! If you ever think to yourself, I wish I had a perfect [insert color/pattern] pair of earrings ....please let me know! They'd be pretty inexpensive (think Forever 21 prices---so pretty cheap), and cute. Thanks everyone! And ask your friends too!

Again, Happy Friday!!!!

Our first week of our senior year!

Well, it's that time again. Provo is FULL of crazy drivers, every slot in apartments is taken, and football is all most people talk about for a few months. It's crazy that I could be graduating in April (it could also be August)! Taylor is technically a senior...but you see he spent two years in Guatemala serving the Lord so he has a good excuse to be behind :)

 I heard many people say how long and hard their first week of school was. Now, I'm not always a Positive Polly, but I have to say I completely disagree with those who didn't like their first week.

You see, last time I was in school I was planning a wedding, then I got married, then got injured at dance. I honestly forgot how fun being in school can be. 

Basically this is our first week in a nutshell: 

  • Got called to teach primary the day before school started...which we really are sooooo excited about! 
  • Took a "first day of school" photo of both of us, against Taylor's will.
  • Realized that I'm one of maybe ten upperclassmen in my physical science class #procrastination
  • Helped surprise one of my best friends Holly with a surprise party. It was SO great. We totally got her! 
  • Learned that Batman is the favorite superhero of almost every person in my physical science lab (don't you love "getting to know you" games??...)
  • Discovered these babies:

  • Attended BYU's first game of the season. 
  • Watched our friend Kaneakua (#82) score not one, but TWO touchdowns in that game! 
  • Discovered that we have AWESOME non-rotated seats for the game. 
  • Discovered that we also sit by the (I don't know how to be nice about this...they really pushed my limits!) most annoying people ever at the games. (I'm not being dramatic I promise! I went to a high school that practically worshipped football so I know how crazy people can be at games...but these guys were just not very considerate to others. And for sure not respectful) So we'll see what happens at the next game :/ 
  • Enjoyed a cookout with my family and grandparents for Labor Day 
  • Spent a few lazy hours with each other watching movies and enjoying each others company. 
Welp guys, here's to another great school year that's starting. Enjoy your classes and schedules, cuz I sure enjoy mine! And that's all. 

*happy that I still get a few late-rise mornings with this semester's schedule. thank goodness! (i heart comfy comfys).
