Learn How To Make Bows

You will surely want to make bows at home instead of buying them at the store once you know how to make them. Lots of great ribbon types are available at your local craft store which you can purchase to make different styles of bows. Also, you can find great deals in the dollar bins at the store or clearance ribbon available all year round.


When you make bows yourself you will certainly save a lot of money and you will have fun too. I was surprised that many of the already made bows from various types of holiday ribbon for sale at the craft store were priced up to $ 70.00 for one large bow. You could certainly do the same thing at home for just a small fraction of that cost since the ribbon is very inexpensive, especially when on sale. Even the more elaborate bows with a few different layers of various ribbon is something you could make instead of purchasing which allows you to be very creative in the work you are doing while still saving money. 


I love being able to make bows that I can use to decorate my house or give as gifts. I think it adds such a special personal touch when you can share that you know how to create beautiful bows and have designed one especially for them. The best part when you make bows is that you can pick out ribbon that is well suited to the person’s taste and likes depending on their interests.  This really makes it personalized and special.


For example, my friend’s daughter loves flowers and has a May birthday. This is perfect because I am able to purchase all kinds of flower ribbon, especially during spring time, and then I can make hair bows for her. She just loves this!  I’ll be making hair bows for her in a variety of styles with a bunch of different ribbon. Since I found some great gift bow ribbon I’m going to use and then add those bows to the outside of the wrapped box of hair bows. I even found some ribbon to make bows in the dollar bins so this will be a very reasonably priced gift and better yet, it will be home-made because I know how to make bows!


Jenn Spencer enjoys making bows and especially loves teaching others how to make hair bows and decorative bows. For more information, please visit her site http://www.LearnHowToMakeBows.com or her blog at http://www.LearnHowToMakeBows.wordpress.com

Religious Statues

What is the difference between religious statues and any other? Well, every religious statue is about a deity or saint and is symbolic of the teachings. In the sometimes fickle world we live in today, such statues remind us of virtues like righteousness, honesty, wisdom, justice, and many more. One of the recent saints, whose teachings have spread in all corners of the world today, is Saibaba of Shirdi. Revered as one of the greatest saints of all time and worshipped by millions as a God incarnate, Saibaba was a mysterious Fakir who enriched the lives of each person he met in his lifetime. Regardless of religion or creed the enlightened saint blessed all who came to him in myriad ways and preached that there is just one god (Sabka Malik Ek). 

Often saying, “my miracles are inscrutable”, Saibaba had demonstrated many miracles in his lifetime. Some of these stories are carried by devotees far and wide. For instance, Saibaba was very fond of burning lamps in the Masjid where he often stayed and other temples in Shirdi and needed oil for the little earthenware lamps he lit. Being a Fakir, he depended on the generosity of the grocers to donate it from time to time, as he lit those lamps every night. There came a time when all the village grocers felt it was unprofitable to give free oil to the saint and one day all of them refused to oblige him saying they were out of fresh stock. 

The Fakir returned to his Masjid empty handed, but without a word of protest. He simply poured water into the earthen lamps and lit the wicks. To everyone’s disbelief, the wicks were lit and the lamps burned deep into the night. The news of this miracle seen by many soon reached the grocers’ ears and they all felt profusely sorry about refusing the divine saint. They rushed to his feet and apologized. Saibaba pardoned them but warned them never to lie again. He told them that they could have plainly refused without the untrue excuse that they all made. But, of course by then they all knew that he didn’t need their charity for his task. 

The fascinating thing about Saibaba and many of his stories that you can find online or in books, is that they talk of him telling things to particular people and many of these people’s families still reside in Shirdi. His many other wonderous stories have been carried forward through generations. Like that of Babu Kirwandikar’s daughter who often told people she was Saibaba’s sister. Even the godly saint was extremely fond of the child. Once she fell in a well. The villagers rushed to help her and found her suspended mid-air as if some invisible hand was holding her up. The people quickly pulled her out and praised Saibaba for her extended life. Hence, religious statues of Saibaba can be found in every house in Shirdi.
