Why the “Bossy Cow”?
It all started with a move to Spokane, Washington, from Toledo, Ohio. My youngest sister was leaving home for the first time and we are very close. That was 2005 after two years, it was time to move on and head to Arizona; to be closer to my daughter in New Mexico. Well just as life goes, as my plans were taking shape a curve ball in the form of the most wonderful man entered my life and as they say the rest is history.
We married in December of 2011 in Las Vegas it was fantastic. We didn't want to just go to Vegas and get married. So we planned an 1880's theme and I set out to make our wedding attire. See picture above. Which I feel is my greatest sewing accomplishment. I designed my dress and made everything except my husband's pants. After watching me over the couple of weeks putting our clothes together and seeing the finished results; he suggested it was time for me to follow my dream.
With his support and encouragement I decided to start an Etsy shop. It was a difficult task just coming up with a name. It took months every time we decided on one it was not available on Etsy. Then after the third failure my husband suggested “The Bossy Cow”. This is a funny story back when we were first dating, he actually said to me “Oh don’t be such a bossy cow.” At the time I nearly floored him. Then I explained to him that I was born “BOSSY” in bold capitals letters; so deal with it! Of course now we laugh about it all the time. And thus in August, 2012 "The Bossy Cow" started on Etsy.
Expanding into a website to better serve buyers and growing my business are the next goals.
I give back in the spirit of gratitude by supporting charities with donations from my stock or Gift Certificates. It is my way of paying it forward and brings great joy to my heart.
Bossy Cow Designs and The Bossy Cow (Etsy shop) are one woman's creative passion. I am that women; Hello my name is Laura Mae; I am "the Bossy Cow" a wife, a mother, a sister, a friend, and an artist. I am a passionate animal lover, traveler and photographer. I find inspiration everywhere. I feel attitude is only second to gratitude. For it is with a positive attitude and a grateful heart one can accomplish any dream.
I like to refer to my products as fun and practical things. I am a simple country girl at heart and very much a practical person. Simply put I am a seamstress and for fun I knit. My passion for organization and bags lead me to make fabulous bags for all occasions. Watching my sister struggle for years to find a suitable fitting dog coat for her precious Boo Boo a Pitbull inspired me to make dog coats. And the rest just came from the practical sense of gift giving that drives my Christmas shopping every year. Everything is made by me in my home.
