We at Glamsquad are often tickled by our featured designer Rachael, owner of the fabulous Bowcrazybowtique!

Why are we tickled you ask? Let's just say that Whoopi & Ellen better
look out, because "heeeeeere comes Rachael!!!!!"

We recently interviewed Rachael to learn more about her :)
(GSB) 1- Tell us about yourself (family, interests, other talents...)
(Rachael) Oh gosh, I hate having to talk about myself! I never know where to begin! LOL Okay, here's a quick life story! I have always loved hairbows! When I was little I wanted to wear them everyday, but my Mom wasn't the hairbow type. I remember I went to school with another little girl who always wore hairbows and I found out her mom made them for her. I had my mom ask her to make some for me and she did! I was thrilled!
I married young and wanted a family right away, but I kept having miscarriages. My husband and I decided to become foster parents and adopted our first child and son, Destyn. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v217/RSHAW000/IMG_9647.jpg
After five years of trying and one loss after another, I finally gave birth to a PERFECT baby girl, miss Tessa! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v217/RSHAW000/5monthsoldfavorite.jpg
I could not wait to get a bow on her cute little head and she's been wearing bows ever since. Almost 3 years later, we were blessed again with another little girl! Her name is Samara and she too does not leave the house without a hairbow.

(GSB) 2- What or who inspires you?
(Rachael) As a SAHM, I was on a limited income and I could not afford to pay boutique prices for hairbows. I decided to try and so, I decided to start making them on my own. I do try to be on the cheaper side when I sell hairbows. This is more of a hobby for me and not so much about the money. I want to make it affordable for other moms to buy hairbows for their daughters.

(GSB) 3- What is your favorite item (or type of item) to create?

(Rachael) My favorite item to create is the two color topper boutique bows! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v217/RSHAW000/IMG_9367.jpg

(GSB) 4- How did you get started?

(Rachael) I started making hairbows when Tessa was about two. I just sat down with ribbon, wire and a glue gun and started playing.

(GSB) 5- Where do you see yourself with your business in the future?

(Rachael) I hope to continue to improve and become a better bow maker. Bow making for me has never really been about making money; it's something I really enjoy doing and I love knowing that there are little girls from all over wearing the bows I make. I recently was sent pics of a little girl wearing my bows in India! I love what I do and hope I can continue doing it in the future.

Congratulations Rachael!
