The Most Beautiful Part of "F" is Flowers!

April showers bring May FLOWERS!!


What could be more fitting to feature for the letter "F" than flowers? I know there are those women who don't like flowers, but for the majority of us, a beautiful bouquet can brighten ANY day!


Align CenterAn etsy shop that does not have a shortage of flowers is Sweet or Spicy Bowtique! Barbara has an adorable selection of hats, headbands, and hair clips covered in cute bows and different flowers!

As a wife and mother of three Barbara started her business after making bows for her daughters. It was even her daughters who talked her into selling bows to begin with!


She started on ebay, but the day she found etsy, Barbara was hooked! She opened her first etsy shop, JJ&K's in April of 2009 and a year later she opened Sweet or Spicy Bowtique.


JJ&K's was how Barbara first became an involved member of Christian Arts and Crafters team and Etsykids. She eventually began Sweet or Spicy Bowtique to use for merchandise put in local shops. While similar, the two shops are a little bit different!


"Since I have been on etsy I have met some wonderfully kind and generous people. I have had a great experience and enjoyed some success."

On top of everything that Barbara has done and continues to do, she has generously offered this CUTE flower headbands to be given away!
