Wholesale chiffon flowers

*Arabian shown in pictures*

I have decided to make my flowers to sell to crafters to make their own creations with. I will also sell them attached to covered alli clips for anyone wanting those. They can be made with 1 to 2 colors and you choose the colors.The flowers are about 3 inches in diameter. Above is a color chart. I will also have brown and hot pink which are not shown. I am looking into adding more colors to the list but as of right now this is what I have. In about a month I will have leopard and zebra flowers for sale as well. I will also be adding a ruffled chiffon flower to my list soon. I will have more pictures of this flower in different color choices and also pictures of the ruffled chiffon flower as soon as my supplies come in.


$2.00 each

$10.00 ½ dozen

$20.00 dozen

Flowers on covered alli clip:

$2.50 each

$13.00 1/2 dozen

$26.00 dozen



United States - $5 flat rate

Overseas – I will have to weigh the box before I can give you a shipping cost. Our post office here was no help with even approximate shipping overseas so they told me I would need to weigh and measure the box before. Sorry I cannot give you even an idea.

If you have any other questions please feel free to me email me at or leave me a comment on here.

Typhoon Morakot is here...

Last night while talking with my neighbor I found out that we are in TCCOR 3. For those of you unaware of what TCCOR 3 means, it is a typhoon condition. We are always in TCCOR 4 once typhoon season starts which means that anytime after we hit TCCOR 4 we can have a typhoon so basically just letting you know to be somewhat prepared because it can hit pretty fast. Then TCCOR 3 basically means there is one heading our way and in 24 to 48 hours it is supposed to hit so they want us to secure all our outdoor things and get last minute shopping and things taken care of. I checked the wunderground website which is where we can get info about the typhoon coming and it is supposed to hit tomorrow afternoon around 3pm and it will be at Cat2 which is no more then the tornados that I am used to since I am from Oklahoma. They say winds of 96 to 110 mph are expected. This really sucks since my husband is gone. I have to go out on our patio and move inside the patio stuff and take down the kiddie pool which would be his job if he were home. I also have to go to the commissary (grocery) and pick up a few last minute things and last I heard the line was wrapped around the store once so that is not going to be a fun trip. I dread this...I hate typhoon season. I do not mind the storms but I do not want to deal with the crowds and the preparing. My plan for today was to relax at home with my daughter, work a little and then talk to my husband in much for those plans! I will still get to talk to my husband later but I will not get to relax at home like I wanted to. Also let me complain a little! My AC went out last night which is a base housing problem but I cannot get them to come out until after the typhoon so needless to say I am HOT!!! Its 77 degress in my house. I wish my husband was here because he could maybe figure out the problem but its just me and the baby and neither of us have any idea how to fix an AC lol. Well I better go get ready so I can get to the commissary right when they open! I will post another blog soon if I do not lose power from the typhoon. Thanks for listening to me rant! Oh and if I can get some pictures when the typhoon hits then I will post them after ;)

Here we go...

This will be my very first blog. I am starting a new business and slowly but surely getting things together. I am very excited to share with everyone all the new stuff I am doing. Right at this very moment I am waiting for my shipment of supplies to come in because I will be making chiffon flowers and selling them. Right now I am jsut selling them to people to make hair clips, headbands etc. out of but I will eventually be making them for myself and making clips out of them and putting them on headbands to sell in my store. My store is not open yet, I still have a lot of work ahead of me to get things up and running. I am hoping to open up just before Christmas. My husband is deployed right now and should be back in about 6 weeks and then 2 weeks after that we are going on vacation back home to visit our family so I have a lot going on right now on top of the boutique so I know that I will not be open until at least November 1st. That is my plan at least! Anyway, welcome to my blog. Bare with me because I am really busy right now but I will try and post everyday if I can with updates on what is going on.
