Friday's Features


I don't know if you have seen these before, but I just think they are too cute!

I stumbled across Summer's Banners and her company, Sugar Britches, several months ago, and fell in love with her custom banners!

She makes custom name, birthday, themed, seasonal, & Holiday banners. I asked Summer what inspired her to start her business.....

"I have been scrapbooking from the day I got home from my honeymoon. Once we had babies I got more into scrapbooking and wanting to preserve their every move and memory in life. I then started teaching classes and loved sharing my ideas with people. I still teach classes via online through a blog called A Sassy Affair. Everything I teach is about altering items, making them your own! So when I started making banners I thought I could do this for every holiday, and personalize them for children's rooms or for birthdays! I took my passion for scrapbooking and altering items, mixed them together and came up with my banner ideas. I make banners for every holiday, birthdays, scrapbook rooms and children's rooms. I do a lot of custom banners.Be sure to check out my gallery on SugarBritches for more ideas!! My business idea started with me making one banner for Halloween for my mantel and posting it on my blog. Other people saw my blog, asking where I got my banner. So I started selling my banners on Etsy, and then started my website,"

Jen was inspired by.....

" daughter. I enjoyed being able to make her hairwear, it was a fun hobby for a new mommy. She is almost 15 now, how time flies. Luckily I have 2 other little sweeties, who love bows as much as I do. As a SAHM I felt like I needed a creative outlet. I love ribbon, so I choose hair bows. I have been making hair bows professionally for over 10 years now. My oldest daughter is my partner. We are lucky to be able to spend a lot of time together, talking and creating!The market is absolutely flooded with amazing ribbon, which of course gets the creativity flowing. Something unique to our site, our special occasion dresses with matching hair bows. We make it easier to find the exact match!"
