Calling all Mom's of Girls....

her facebook wall for sale. And she will custom make as well! She is sending Brynnleigh a headband to review, and I can't wait to get it! The pictures are adorable, and so us, pink & yellow!
1) So tell us a little bit about your self...
I am a Stay at home mom. To a little boy, most people would assume because I make girl items I have a girl but I don't :) I have a career history in retail sales management, dog training, and the thing that keeps us going in the morning a coffee maker or barista is the technical name. I grew up in the midwest suburbs near Chicago IL, lived in Kentucky for a brief period and now live in the Chicago area again!
2) Can you tell us more about Cotton Tail Boutique and how it got started?
I decided to start my boutique after I had received a few tutus and headbands that I won in a giveaway, I was purposely trying to win them for a photography studio that we frequent on a monthly basis for our photos. I was greatly upset with the quality being that I come from a retail world, I can not justify selling people something that you wouldn't stand there proudly and say "I Did That." I was embaressed by the quality and was determined that I was going to make some tutus for our photo studio (they had done so much for us I had to repay them). Unfortunately right at the start of making tutus and headbands we got a call from our studio that they were going to be shutting down due to a coorporate decision. So here I was with tulle and headbands. I was still stunned at the fact some people would pay $10-20 for something that I personally didn't want to put on my dog. So I started CottonTail Boutique. My ultimate goal is quality and customer satisfaction. I make every tutu custom made so there isn't a stock pile of tutus laying around. One someone wants a tutu or headband once they pay their invoice I work all day and night to get them done.
3) What is your favorite item and why?
I would say I have two favorite items the first one being our Tiffany & Co inspired tutu (see tutu pic above) - I didn't have a plan for the Tiffany blue tulle I had so one night I had a dream and it came to me! FIND a Tiffany looking heart! So I made the tutu then I drove around and around, asked everyone I knew where could I find a Tiffany looking heart! I finally found a gorgeous heart! I think the Tiffany tutu is one of the most elegant tutus I have!
My second favorite item is the pheasant and cameo headband! I have always loved cameos! I think there is this old beauty in them. When I found them I grabbed everyone I could find! I didn't have a plan but I knew I had to have the cameos!
