I am not sure when crafting became a passion of mine...
Over the years I have collected anything and everything that "at some point" could be used for a craft project. Now that I have two little girls I find myself passing on my love of crafting to them...and they seem to be open and ready. My oldest loves to write stories, draw people and paint. My youngest loves to color and has found that glue works better if she can use an entire bottle.
My crafting has included scrap booking, making holiday gifts, favors for birthdays and so much more. Soon after having my second daughter I started playing with ribbon and flowers and discovered a new love for little girl hair accessories. With time and practice I found that I was getting better and better and people started asking me where I got my bows from and that is how Oh So Pretty By Asia was born.
Not long after I started making bows I decided to be a stay at home mom. It was a scary decision, but seemed to be the best one at that time for my family. Within the next couple of months I sold some bows here and there, but it was never too serious. Then one day I stumbled upon Etsy...and here I am today. (Well it wasn't that easy, but you get the idea.) I really did not think I would sell anything, but I did and I was hooked!
I usually make my bows during nap time and in the evening after my girls are in bed. But there are times that bow making has been a family event. During the first few months I used my youngest as a model for some of my bow pictures. This did not last long - anyone that has a 2 year old will probably understand why. She was quick to learn that sticking out her tounge or spinning in circles made taking pictures nearly impossible! She retired from being a photo model at the age of 2 1/2 years and has changed positions to "package carrier" and "mailbox flipper" at the Post Office. My oldest daugher loves to play with all the fabric flower petals and jewel embellishments. I love getting her thoughts on the bows as I make them...she usally gives me a thumbs up, thumbs down or a thumbs medium. Yes, when you're 7 years old a thumbs medium is a much needed addition to the rating system!
Oh So Pretty By Asia has become a real passion for me. Every sale is as exciting as the first one. I have met some great people! I get to help support my family! I get to be home with my girls! I am living my dream!

Crafting has always been in my blood. For as long as I can remember I have had glitter stuck to my hands and glue stick strings all over my workspace!
I am constantly making new things, so please check back often.
If you don't see what you're looking for or have any questions please feel free to contact me.
My home is a completely smoke free home, but please note that my home does have one very old dog. (He can't hear, can barely see and pretty much sleeps all day...but we love him! Once in awhile he peaks into my office I make my hair pretties in and may find his way to sleep at me feet.)
Accepted payment methods
**Please remember that packages shipped outside of the United States can vary in delivery times...anywhere from a week to several weeks!**
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: Due to the current rate increases for International Shipping I have had to adjust my shipping rates to a new higher rate for all international destinations. Once your package ships if I have over charged you in shipping by more than $2.00 I will refund the difference to the payment method you paid with. Please Note: Buyers are responsible for any and all customs/duty fees.
>>>If you are looking to purchase several items from my shop please feel free to message me with the items that you are looking at and your address. (Often times I can reduce the shipping costs for larger orders.) I will look up the shipping amount based on your item selections and set up a Reserved Listing for you! <<<
I will generally ship USPS first class standard/international mail (to keep shipping costs down) and will include tracking number/delivery confirmation when available. If you would like your item sooner please message me before your purchase so that I can update the shipping costs in the listing for you.
I ship to the address provided by Etsy and/or Paypal depending on your payment choice . Please make sure both Etsy and Paypal have a correct address for you.
**If an item gets shipped to an old/incorrect address that either Etsy or Paypal has on file for you, the buyer will be responsible for paying additional shipping charges for the item to be resent to the correct address.**
I understand that shipping charges are never fun to pay, so I am always looking for the most reasonable way to ship. Because of this I will ship your item(s) using a bubble envelope mailer or box, depending on what your item fits better in.
