Girls n Bows Review & Shop Credit Giveaway.

I received an item for review.  No other compensation was given.  All opinions are my own 

Fourth of July is kind of a big deal in the Urban household.  4 years ago - on July 4 2010 - Rob and I got engaged.   It's always been Rob's favorite holiday and so I knew that Eleanor was going to need something special for it.

So I found this shop on instagram and came across this headband and knew it was what she needed.  It's big (bigger the better) and has different layers and textures which I really liked.

I contacted the shop owner about a review and was happy she agreed.  (She's also a fellow Michigander!)
Patty is a grandma who started out making bows for her grandaughter's and loved it enough that she started making them for others.  That led to her selling them at a local craft store, consignment shops, and wholesale to local boutiques.   

She's now making the headbands as well as bow ties, bracelets, and barefoot sandals and is starting to do more sewing thanks to her new sewing machine. 

Patty has always loved crafting and has done cross stitch and made t-shirts as well as floral arrangements, wreaths, wedding flowers and hair pieces thanks to her background as a floral  designer. 

She loves to do custom pieces so if you have a special need contact her!

I got really excited when I came home from a walk and saw that the package had been delivered.  I was so excited to get into it that I kind of destroyed the box in the process because it was sealed up so well.  Once I got it open I let Eleanor 'open' it the rest of the way.  She was loving the tissue paper so much that she didn't really care about the bow.
That's a certain little hand trying to get into the package. 

 She doesn't really coordinate, but I had to put it on her as soon as I got it!

The headband is a little big on Eleanor.  It still fits, just is a little loose.  This isn't a bad thing, because it can be used  for a long time.  Another thing that I really liked about it was that it wasn't heavy.  It has several different layers of lace and ribbon but is still lightweight.

As well as being lightweight it's strong.  I wanted to test it so I picked it up and once Eleanor saw me with it she wanted it - of course - and then set it down and let her play with it.  Nothing came loose.  

She also felt bad about a slight delay- which wasn't a issue to me at all - and sent a bottlecap bracelet well, which was very sweet of her.  I have a niece who is having a birthday next month and I think she would love this, although her birthday is after the 4th of July so I might just give it to her early.  This bracelet fits me, which is impressive because I can't wear them normally because I have such small wrists that they fall halfway down my arms.

You can connect with her on  instagram &  facebook

Patty has offered up a shop credit of $7 on anything that is ready to ship in her shop.  Winner is responsible for shipping so keep that in mind when entering.
