Introducing The Cutzie Pa Tutzie Shoppe! (CONTEST CLOSED)

Our next featured artist is the talented mother Amanda, owner of The Cutzie Pa Tutzie Shoppe. Amanda makes the cutest handmade hair assecories, tutu's, tutu dresses, ribbon onsies, and shirts. I was immediately drawn to her products because I too am a mother and I have 4 little girls. I can just imagine my little girls prancing around the house in Amanda's adorable creations!

I spent some time talking with Amanda, she just opened her online shop, and she has agreed to be our featured artist. She has also graciously agreed to a GIVEAWAY!! (Yay, free stuff!)

She gave us some insight into her life as a busy mom, business owner, and creator.

Here is what Amanda had to say:

Tell us a little bit about yourself:
My name is Amanda. I am a stay at home military mom to 2 amazing little girls who are 15 months apart in age. They are currently 2 3/4 and 18months. I am the owner of The Cutzie Pa Tutzie Shoppe. I have a myspace page that I was originally set up on as my only way of taking orders. I took the plunge into the online world and opened a web page for my business in November of 2008. I took on 2 partners in my business in January of 2009. I figured that it would help keep the business local when we leave Oklahoma, and would help to expand on what I can do alone. We offer a wide selection of handmade hair accessories, tutus, tutu dresses, ribbon onesies/shirts and are currently working on a whole bunch of new items as well!

How did you become interested in making these cute little hair accessories, tutu's and clothes:
I have always been the extremely crafty type but never knew how to move it into something I could make money doing. Shortly after my youngest was born, I discovered that I couldn't find hair accessories for either of my children's lack of hair. One of my very close friends had been making bows for her girls for quite a while and she showed me some basics. I was hooked after making my first bow! That was in November of 2007. In May of 2008 a woman I was friends with through myspace posted a notice that she was selling all of her supplies and I decided that it was meant to be. I took over on July 6th and have been having a blast making bows since. I love the feeling of making something that someone else will appreciate and find beauty in.

What is the most difficult aspect of your craft, the business, and/or creating:
It is difficult to not buy new ribbon. I sometimes think that I might have more ribbon than sense! I have so much ribbon that hasn't been used yet and I keep buying more. There are just SO many cute prints and I have so many ideas but never enough time in the day to get them all finished!

Anything else you would like us to know about your shop, you or your products:
We are currently running a BOW MADNESS sale, loosely based off of the March Madness tournaments. There will be 4 bows to vote on every day. The top 2 will move on to a later day until only one remains! The daily bows will be 20% off on the day that they are featured and 10% any day after. The winning bow will be 25% off for the rest of March and all of April. Anyone who votes will be entered into a drawing for any bow that was featured during the promotion. The more you vote the better your chances but please only vote for 1 bow per day.

Here are a few of my favorite items from The Cutzie Pa Tutzie Shoppe
