About Us

Hi there! My name is Haley. When my husband enlisted in the Army, I started making crafts to keep my mind off the long distance. I also made a Twitter account to try to meet other women like myself- struggling with military distance. Some of my friends on Twitter loved my crafts- first a bow, then a bracelet, and later a keychain, too. They encouraged me to turn my personalized products into a small business. & so, Patriotic Bows was born in March, 2014. Since then, I have produced and sold over 10,000 handmade items!

Patriotic Bows was rebranded as The Dash Between Designs in early 2018. I decided to stop making military items and start focusing on Rae Dunn inspired products. Upon having my daughter in May 2019, & as an oversupplier of breastmilk, I yet again found a new product to make! Stellar Soaps was named after my daughter, Stella. Upon weaning my daughter and entering a career in the Michigan cannabis industry, my shop is now named Simply Stellar.

About me:
-I am a graduate of the University of Michigan, with a degree in Psychology.
-I married my husband in 2015, and welcomed our daughter to the world in 2019.
