Small introduction

I am Emily, the stay at home mama behind Ella-Bear Bowtique. I make hand crafted lovelies for the little one's in your life. Please check out my Etsy store at

I am new to blogger but not the blogging world as and myself have an on going affair for the past 8 years and on for the past 3 years. It was time to expand the blogging family tree, insert here. :)

In 2004 my husband deployed, for the first time, to Iraq. Being a newly married couple this separation was obviously hard on me and I turned to crafting to consume the long lonely hours. I had always done crafts here and there as a child and adolescent. Cross stitch, embroidery, sewing and quilting. In 2004 I took up crochet and fell in love. Making blankets and scarves for anyone that would accept one. It kept my mind and my hands busy and soon my husband returned home. Shortly after we had our first baby girl, Ella who is the inspiration for Ella-Bear Bowtique. I started making my own burpies, blankets and accessories for my daughter because the onslaught of run of the mill items just wasn't good enough for our baby girl. Shortly after Ella was born we were pregnant again and eventually welcomed our second child, Connor into the world. They have both been a joy and have certainly kept me busy these past two and a half years. Now that they are toddlers I am finding a little, not much, more time on my hands and have again turned to crafting. This time making the same lovelies I did for my own children and have chosen as the perfect venue to share my creations with you! As of now I have only listed the beautiful hair bows that my daughter inspires. I hand sew all of my bows and heat seal all ribbon ends, even those you don't see, to make sure you are getting the best quality product possible.

In the next coming month I will be listing blankets, burpies, tutus and more! So be sure to add to your favorites on etsy and my blog here and check back often to see what I'm up to!
