It's been a long time coming!

It's been months of hard work but the time has come to finally launch my official online business, Sparkle and Charm Boutique.

Please be kind enough to check out my new website and let me know what you think!  And while you're there, take a  close look at the hair bows because I'm giving away one free hair bow this Saturday morning!  

All you have to do is go to my website to check them out and then come back here and leave me a comment letting me know what style you liked like to win. I'll even do a custom made hair bow to match a favorite outfit.

And if you're willing to help me spread the news, the code for my button is on the sidebar of my website!

I don't have all my products posted yet (i.e. I'll be posting a Christmas tutu soon and more tutu sets) so please stop back often to check out what's new!

As much as I'd love to take the credit for my fabulous web design, I really can't.  I'm not creative in that way.  All the credit goes to Revka with RS Designs.

Not so long ago I started researching my options to have a web designer create an online business website for me. One of the main reasons I chose Revka with RS Designs is because I was impressed with her portfolio of previous customers. Her past designs looked professional and appealing. I was also pleased with her very affordable prices. I’m so glad that RS Designs caught my eye!

Revka did a fantastic job of designing my Sparkle and Charm Boutique website! Not having any experience with web design myself, the only assistance I could offer her was to let her know the color scheme that I wanted and that I wanted textured layers. Revka took my meager input and ran with it, creating a whimsical, but functional web design for me.

Throughout the creative process, Revka kept me in the loop on a regular basis, emailing me with suggestions, asking for my input, and offering me previews along the way. Her attention to detail was most impressive and her commitment to 100% satisfaction was amazing! Even when I thought the web design was fine, she found a few more ways to make it better. She wasn’t willing to consider the design finished until I absolutely loved it, which I most certainly do!

I would highly recommend RS Designs if you’re considering having a business website or a blog designed or if your current design needs a makeover. Trust me; you’ll be just as impressed with Revka’s work as I have been!

Congratulations on your new business endeavor! I visited the site and took a peek around. I love the pink theme -- perfect for what you are selling. I just LOVE the little tutus.

We don't do anything for Halloween, but I can garauntee you if I had a little girl I would get one of the little pink ones and haul that baby to every house within a 1 mile radius to show her off.

I hope everything goes well for you!

Take Care,

What an adorable site! I wish I had little girls to buy for, but I will pass you along to those I know who do! Good luck with your endeavors!

The site looks great. I love when you click on the pictures a nice big one pops up so you can get a closer look.

And I love the pink butterfly clip. It is so cute!

My favorite is Pink & mint green double stack butterfly bow. Of course I love the site, easy to move around on and I already have your button. I wish you much success.

Looks great~ best wishes!

I'd pick a large custom bow... something to match my daughter's school uniform.

At 2:37 PM, Blogger Erin said...

I LOVE the bow holder! Everything you make is so cute!

Lovely items. I am a little confused though. When I click on double ribbon bookmark, it takes me to the single ribbon one.

You know I love your new boutique design. Thanks to you sharing a preview of it it with me, I realized right away how talented Revka is.

I placed my order to have her completely redesign my shoppe, just tonight! I'm excited!

Thank you so much for leading me to her. Your shop is as adorable as can be and I happen to have a seven month old granddaughter who'll be upright soon which means she'll definitely need a tutu!


I wish you all the best with this new venture, OW.

PS - Your adorable Sparkle and Charm Boutique button looks very nice in my sidebar. :-)

At 10:34 PM, Blogger Just Lisa said...

Great site! Such cute stuff!

My favorite bow is the Halloween one. Very festive!

At 8:18 PM, Blogger DeAnna said...

The site looks great and your stuff is so cute! I love the collegiate tutus. Cute!!!

I love the look of your products, all the tutus and bows were charming and cute! Since it's October, I'm especially drawn by the triple stack Halloween bow!

I would pick a large custom bow. I would just have to pick the right outfit...she has so many cute ones that I am now sure which is my favorite. Your bows are sooooo cute!

At 2:15 PM, Blogger Kathy's Korner said...

That bow is soooo cute!

Congrats and good luck!

I like the pink butterfly clip! I just posted on my blog too:

At 2:59 PM, Blogger Guenivere said...

I love all your bows! Great website, I love that the big pictures pop right up. I like the pink and orange boutique bow the best as well as all the holiday bows (because I am festive like that!). Good luck with the business!

At 3:37 PM, Blogger Our Story: Continued said...

You products are adorable! I love the pink butterfly clip and the daisy apple clip.

At 12:53 AM, Blogger Tammy said...

I do remember coming here to visit your blog, but it's been SO long!
Congrats on your new boutique! I would love to win won of those adorable bows! I had a hard time choosing just one, but I'd have to narrow it down to the ladybug bow and the butterfly bow.

Oh, and if you get a chance, come over to enter my giveaway, too! :)

Oh, fun. I like the tutus!

At 10:11 PM, Blogger Crittle said...

I LOVE TUTUS!! So adorable. Really.

I like the Halloween bow, but the idea of having one that was custom made to match a U of TX tutu is also appealing.

Congrats on all your hard work finally paying off and coming together.
