Wow!!! That's all I can say. Creating a website, SEO, branding, pretty much changing everything that I have become comfortable with for the last 6 years, is super hard and time consuming. I decided about four months ago that it was time to do a little rebranding of my handmade business.  Now, I'm no GAP or IHOP (or IHOB?) Side note: You'll never get me to eat a burger at IHOP, I'm sorry. Pancakes 4EVA for me!) But I felt it was time for me to switch things up a little.  

I started my handmade business, OLIVE + BO in 2012, 2 years after I gave birth to my daughter.  I have sewn for as long as I can remember and started using my skills to create baby items, such as bibs and swaddling blankets and sell them on Etsy and at craft shows.  Every item I have made, I have had my daughter in mind.  {That is where the name OLIVE + BO came from. My daughter Olive and my terrier pup at the time, Mr. Bojangles.  They were my 2 babies when I started and always put a smile on my face!} 


But my daughter has grown (she is now 8 years old), she is no longer a baby.  And when I sew now, (still with her in mind) there is so much more that I want to create, so many ways I want to express my views and myself to everyone, but most importantly HER! There so many things that I LOVE that just can't fit into what I first started out with.  

That's where LORI LOVES... comes in!! 


Someone asked me months ago, "What do you love?"  And I answered, well I love "dot, dot, dot!"  I love my family first and foremost, I love to sew, I love to paint, I love to build things, I love speaking my mind, I love to act like a kid...The list goes on and on.  What this new adventure will allow is the chance to share ALL of my loves with you!

From new products to fun DIY projects, to videos or just talking about cool stuff!

I was stressing so much about this new website to be honest and getting things perfect and finished on time.  It's been a real rollercoaster the last two months.  I feel like I'm letting go of something that I have been attached to for so long.  It's like watching your child grow up, that bittersweetness. But it's been a blast for me finally taking this next step.  So as I'm saying goodbye to some things, I'm saying hello to a lot more!

Welcome to LORI LOVES...!
