"Why?" I answered, fearing I'd be wrangled into some time-consuming, annoying project.
"I need some more bows," he said.
You see, the arts-and-crafts store I work at sells pre-made bows for the holidays but our store manager wanted custom-made ones.
Custom bows sell for more and the floral ribbon we use to make them is given to us directly by Corporate. It doesn't cost the store a cent. Each handmade bow is pure profit.
"I can do that," I replied. "Bow Boy is back!"
I only had about an hour-and-a-half to work with but here's what I made the other day.....
Some turned out better than others. What do you think?
The store manager said mine are just as good--if not better than--the coworker that originally showed me how to make bows!
Shhh, don't tell her that though!
It was a nice diversion. A chance to create and play and not stress over work. If only it could be like that every day there.
Until next time...Bow Boy over and out!
