February is one of my favorite months for several reasons. I love the abundance of red hearts, Valentine's cards, and the opportunity to celebrate love. I know there are some people that cringe at the "holiday" ... but I have always taken February 14th as a day to celebrate ... LOVE.
Love for friends, love for family, love with a significant other, or simply loving what you do.
For a while now I have dabbled with the idea of an ongoing series on Coeur de La but could not narrow down what exactly I wanted to feature. Being that Coeur in french means heart, and that I put love into everything I do and admire others who do the same ... I have decided to feature artists, creators, crafters, and people that are doing what they love. Once a month I will share with you various individuals that I hope will inspire you to take some time out of your busy schedule to sit down and do something you love. Thus the series will be called ... Do What You ... LOVE
So without further ado ... I am happy to feature Candis of Addie Lu's Bowtique. Over Christmas I had the privilege to photograph Candis and her sweet family for some fun holiday photos. I have known Candis for quite some time and she has always been a positive and vibrant person.
I was excited when I found out Candis was doing something she loves ... making bows for little ones. I scoured her selection of bows and thought ... these would be perfect for adults and asked her if she could make a couple of bows for me and my Coeur de La readers. And ... lucky for us she agreed. Each bow is handmade, handcrafted, and made in various sizes, colors, and patterns. Personally, I love them all.
About Candis of Addie Lu's Bowtique:
a mama to two little girls
an artsy crafter
why did she start making bows: her girls had a lot of outfits but not enough matching bows so she decided to make them herself
making bows is her creative outlet
she recently has started making adult bows and headbands ... all of which I love.
