Tomorrow, Boomer will be 3. Most of the day, it will just be the two of us. My boy holding my hand much like he gripped it the first time I put my finger into the palm of his little hand.
It is such a bittersweet day... His father will miss it all and that totally breaks my heart... for both of them.
Three years ago, the Mr. and I held hands and in one very calm and quiet birth... our son was born.
He amazes me every single day.
Isn't it bizarre how... as mothers... we get caught up in how exhausted we are doing everything for them... but, in retrospect... I have been blessed with being able to witness nearly every single aspect of Goosie and Boomer's life.
The cake is made and ready to be decorated.
The gifts are wrapped and ready for hours of play.
The hugs and kisses are about to burst from my being...
But, inside, I'm so brokenhearted for the Mr. and Boomer... I wish you both could be together.
I can't wait till the day we stop talking about when he is coming home.
isn't that so cute... a flower on the lid... heeheheh
Ribbon? Why Goosie and Boomer... I'm so surprised!!!!
a shot from every angle...
What? It's a plastic grocery bag container for your car!!!!!!!!!!
What the heck?
I have to be honest... the first time I made one of these... it was a bit of a joke.
My dear friend that has 4 beautiful children that all got the flu and they were um... vomitting... (ewwww... I know)
in the car. So... I made her a "barf bag" container. But, it is kinda cute and you could just use it to gather up trash! You could whip this out during carpool and amaze the kids... well, maybe not but it would be cute in the car!
So... in order for you to get more entries... you need to join as a follower or leave comments. I'm gonna make this one easy... click on the comments below the post and give this container a name! Make me laugh!!!!!
The giveaway ends Saturday night... and then I will announce the winner on Sunday!
I want to thank all of you that have signed up as followers and have stopped by for a visit! Today's Drab to Fab feature is a plain 4x6 photo frame turned into a "post-it" note holder. I got my frame at WalMart for a dollar. I used paper and ribbon I already had and found this wonderful tutorial. (and the tab on the side is for a pretty pen!)
I made this one to match the clipboard featured in yesterday's post! AND... I'M INCLUDING IT IN THE GIVEAWAY!

Okay... are you ready for Drab to Fab week? Where I will take ordinary items and turn them into a cool gift or special treat????
Each Goosie and Boomer Bowtique follower will receive 10 entries! If you leave a comment this week on any post, you will receive an entry! So... let's get the comments started.
Today's feature is a clipboard. I have taken an ordinary clipboard and made it FAB! It would be the perfect gift for any girl that loves pink! Any girl that wants something special... or a Mom that loves to bake! OR... maybe just maybe you like to be over the top ;). It is embellished with rhinestones and flowers on the front and back. I'm sorry the images are not better. There are three coats of Luster Modge Podge to ensure long lasting! Also, there is a ribbon and button weight to hang a pen if you like!
This clipboard is part of this week's giveaway! That's right... I'm giving it away! And... I will even ship to my international friends!!!!! LEAVE COMMENTS!!!!! *Also, please note... the hairbows will be in Jan's shop on Wednesday. Goosie has a high fever and we are on lockdown today! Please support Jan and her dear friend's son! He is facing a heart transplant! Hairbows will be at "It's Your Style" on Main Street in Mascoutah, IL!
That's right... I'm back to creating here at the Goosie and Boomer house! It is a four day weekend for the Goose and I'm loving the lazy days! I made the top canister for myself and the bottom one as a gift for a friend of ours! I love these cans! I picked mine up at Michael's and I'm thinking of doing some for Christmas! Any ideas, thoughts?
Fall is my favorite time of year!!!!! The smells of pumpkin spice and the feel of leather boots with a skirt are some of my favorite things about Fall :).
I hope this family loves the canister and enjoys it as much as I did making it! Of course, I had to add a bow!!!!!
Okay... so the blog has gotten off track between surgery and deployment. My goal is to get this blog back on track and focus on the creativity of Goosie and Boomer Bowtique. I am exhausted daily but bear with me! I am Mommy, Daddy, long distance wife and still surgery patient. It seems as though I will be under the care of my surgeon for almost a year. I am going to see him in two weeks and hoping for good news! The intention of Goosie and Boomer was to share ideas and eventually set up the Etsy shop. With the state of the economy... I'm looking more at the idea of trunk shows. Thank you for being loyal and make sure you leave comments and follow along on this journey!
FALL!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so excited that Fall is here! Bring it on October! I love sweaters, jeans, long pretty boots... crisp air, pumpkin spice candles, warm tea and the smell of leaves! I have been loving this weather here in the Midwest! and.... nearly 4 weeks at my back... one month down!

I am a stay-at-home mom of two beautiful children... yes, I am biased... I can be... they are mine! Oh, and a military wife, too, to an amazing husband! I was a teacher of the severely emotionally disturbed for nearly 10 years before I became a mother and made the decision to stay home. No longer having the classroom as a creative outlet, I turned to photography, cake decorating, and now bow creations. I was frustrated with some of the options available as far as the price of photography (my first love) and so I began taking photographs of my children and a few clients as well. You will see more than bows showcased on this blog and I hope you enjoy the creations and become inspired as well. And, yes, Goosie and Boomer are the nicknames of my two favorite creations!
