"Business has really piled up with all the custom things I have made for the football crowd. Not all football stuff is very girly so I try to make things a little blingy and a little more feminine. So we have fitted tees for the ladies, blinged hats, little hair flowers with the teams logos in them," said Brittney Montgomery of la Lady designs.
