I am SO in love with making these hair clips!! I think they are so fun. I'm going to be branching out from etsy and selling these at a local crafter's/farmer's market with a friend at the end of this month so I am in full crafting mode! :) The best part about these is both Ashley and I can wear them! They are totally one size fits all. ;) The flowers in these measure 4" so they are a fun size. I stitched the flower layers together so that they are extra durable, covered the alligator clips with coordinating ribbon, added Non Slip Grip so they stay in even the finest of hair, and topped 'em off with a swarovski crystal. Whew!
Of course, if you want to grab them before the Farmer's market you can find them on etsy too. :)
Ok, a little shameless self promotion going on here, but I'm allowed to do that every now and then, right??? ;) These are SERIOUSLY my new favorite thing!! It doesn't hurt that 3 year olds look cute in pretty much ANYTHING... ;)
These are ribbon wrapped headbands with fabulous flowers and gems. You can find them here in my etsy store.
Would you like a tutorial on these?? Let me know and if there is enough interest I'll get working on one! :)
If you haven't seen these clothes before and you have a little girl....prepare yourself. You are going to want them. They are SO darn cute!! Not to mention that the photography in these samples is WAY too cute!
If you're drooling now...head over to Matilda Jane and pick something up for your little princess. :)
**This post will remain at the top of the page for the week....scroll down for new posts! :)**
I can't believe it. This weekend the 25,000th visitor will visit this blog!! That is CRAZY to me. And exciting. It makes me so happy to think that other people are enjoying my silly ramblings and ideas and hopefully I have been able to bring a smile to your face or inspire you to try something new at some point along the way! ;) I really enjoy blogging and it makes me feel good to know that other people are enjoying it too! :)
I figure since this is the week of good luck with St. Patty's day and we're having a big day here at Life In Pictures, we should celebrate! How about a giveaway of one of my newest creations???
I JUST introduced these on ETSY 2 days ago and I am SUPER excited about them. I think for once, one of my hair-brained ideas might actually have something to it!! :) I haven't ever seen anything like it so I'm hoping I can call it "the original." ;)
The photographer and scrapbooker and relatively new sewer (is that a word??) in me decided that these might be pretty cute... do you want to win one???
I LOVE silhouettes and I've never seen them on tshirts before. I've been wearing them around for the last week or so (I know all of my friends think I don't own any other clothes!! ;)) that's the best advertising, right??? I kid you not...everywhere I've gone someone has asked me where they can get one...I even had a store owner ask me if I wanted to set up shop at his place and sell them! AWESOME!!! I figure that's a good thing, right???
I'm selling the boy and girl ones pictured for $42.50 in my etsy store,but here's the even cooler part that I LOVE about these. If you want a TRULY custom shirt as in YOUR OWN KID on the front I can do it for you!! You email me a picture of your child...side view from about 4 feet away and I can create one for you for $68.50. Pretty cool, huh?? Case in point...recognize these guys???

Since I shared my love for peppermint hot chocolate this week I thought I better share this too!! I think it's a fun idea perfect for those cold days!! It's called the hug mug...how cute is that??? It's perfectly designed for you to cup with both hands so you can warm them up while you drink from it's spout like sipper! Too fun!
You can find them here at The Max Brenner Chocolate Shop. DISCLAIMER: This is called the chocolate shop. They do sell ALL kinds of specialty deluxe chocolates for drinking...eating...you name it...so when you visit and leave with MORE than just a mug...don't say I didn't warn you. ;)
I just got a fun little notice that I was featured on Found Handmade's Blog this last week. Too fun! They were featuring handmade St. Patty's Day stuff and shared my shirt along with a few other fun items from Etsy...that's me on the top in the middle...
and look at those shoes on the bottom....SO cute!! I wish they had them in my size!
