My name is Alisha and this is my blog!  I have always loved art, drawing, painting, crafts, sewing, making bows and anything else I can make with my own two hands!  I'm the type of person that likes to keep busy and I have so many ideas and things I want to do...I just need to find the time to do them all!  I love that moms are so involved with helping other moms on these blogs with ideas and tutorials!  It is such a great community to be a part of!

I enjoy playing with my two little girls who are the most precious gifts from God!  I adore them and they inspire me everyday!  I have a wonderful husband who supports me and all of my crazy ideas!  In addition to being a wife and mom, I am also a 1st grade teacher in a rural school in California.  I love my little kiddos at school, I get a great deal of personal satisfaction teaching them and they inspire me so much as well!  I am so excited to start a Teachers Pay teachers account to sell my craft patterns!  If you want to check it out, you can find me in the search bar on their website under "craftivites" or go directly to my shop at www.teacherspayteachers/Store/Alisha-Cogburn.

My esty shop started after the birth of my first daughter.  I lost one of the headbands that I received as a gift, and when I went to replace it, I was shocked at the price and decided that I am going to start making my own!  Not long after, Pink Poodle Bows was born and I started selling bows.  After my second daughter was born, I decided to put the bows on hold for a while.  I just couldn't keep up with it having two little ones and teaching.

I started designing dresses after my second daughter was about 9 months old.  I found that it was sometimes hard to find matching dresses in both of my girls sizes - one size was always sold out.  So I decided to start designing and sewing my own!  It is so much fun to create and design these dresses, and now I can share them with you through my shops!

Please check out all the free tutorials and downloads and thank you to all my supporters!  I really love hearing from you and seeing all your adorable dresses that you have made with these patterns!  You can find me on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Pink-Poodle-Bows-Sewing-Patterns/262386013777533 and I would love for you to share your photos!
