Merry Christmas!

In case you haven't noticed, my shop is down for the holidays. I'm in California for my hubby's graduation from chiropractic school (way to go!!!) and then to visit family for Christmas. I'll be back the 27th. In the mean time, have a Merry Christmas!!!

New tutus and headbands

Like I posted yesterday, I'm going to be adding new tutus to my shop. But first, a preview of what's to come!

Here are a few tutus that are made and ready to be shipped. It also gives you an idea of some of the colors I have available.

And not to gloat, especially on the day Auburn lost their head coach (which I think is NUTS, by the way!) but here's a cute picture of my little cheerleader. Don't mind the drool stains, she's at the end of a LONG period of teething. Molars, ug! On a better note, Roll Tide!

Finally, here are the two newest colors for headbands I'll be adding in my shop, light pink and dark pink, which look really cute with tons of flowers. But you'll have to wait on pictures of possible flower/headband combos.

Craft Fair

I know the craft fair was a week and a half ago, but we've been busy around here, thus the belated post.

Here's my booth all set up! I had it different the first day, but I think this way allowed people easier access to all the products.

Here are all the flower clips on display. My hubby made this great display board for me!

I owe a big thanks to my hubby, mom, and friends for helping before and during the craft show. I sold a ton more tutus that I thought I would so I had to restock after the first day! I never would have made it without them! I'd all but stopped selling tutus in my etsy shop, but after the success at the craft fair I'm adding more options! Very popular were the college team colors tutus! Being in the South, I sold Alabama, Auburn, and even a Florida St. tutu, but I can do any color/university you like! Variations of pinks and purples were also very popular! I'll have several listings in my shop, including the option to create your own tutu color combos. Just convo. me for a custom order. Some ideas I had are:
*Pink and green or purple and green, it reminds me of a garden fairy!
*Your favorite team's colors, your little girl will be the cutest cheerleader!
*Light blue, dark blue, and purple, it reminds me of a mermaid!
*Light green and dark green, with or without blue, think tinkerbell!
*Pink and orange, yummy sherbet!

Newborn Set

I just put this new Newborn Set up on etsy. It's a set of mini flowers that I think would be so cute on newborns! It also comes with a headband just in case the newborn has as much hair as my newborn had! :)

Giveaway Winnings!

Here are the flowers Melinda got as the winner of the Pink Potpourri Giveaway:Mini-Firecracker White Flower Clip

What good choices! I hope you enjoy them Melinda!

More Poinsettias

Here are the other poinsettia flowers that I couldn't get to download last time!
This one is a velvety white trimmed in gold glitter. This one may be my favorite, although it's hard to choose! I'll tell you that I didn't intend to have this many options, but I like them all!

This one is a velvety red with a sprinkle of glitter all over.

This one is a clasic poinsettia.

This one is a red velvety flower with gold glitter trim.

This one is a little bit sheer, which I think is a pretty quality on this flower.

Finally, this flower is petite for smaller babies, or just people who prefer smaller clips. I think the small clips are great for pigtails!

Christmas is Coming!

I always hated this, but now that I'm in the retail world I have to start thinking about Christmas before Halloween is here. So, keeping that in mind, here is one of my new Christmas Poinsettia flower clips!
I'll post more later, they didn't download correctly for some reason...

Delta Zeta Marketplace

Mark your calendars! Yesterday I got my acceptance letter to the Delta Zeta Marketplace! It's a craft fair going on in Huntsville at the VBC Nov. 21-23, although I'll only be there Friday and Saturday. This is my first foray into the physical world of selling my things so it makes me a little nervous. Not only am I going to be face to face with people shopping, but I have to figure out how to present my goods! The theme for decorating the booth this year is "Black and Pink and Chic All Over". Any ideas for me?

Congratulations to Melinda who won the giveaway on The Pink Potpourri! Here's her comment:

I like the hydrangea flower clips. What a great giveaway for moms who love accessories for their little ones!

I'll post the flowers she chooses before I send them out. What fun!

I'm excited to see who wins, so get your name in before Monday at 8 am to qualify!

Fancy Noggins

I just had a fun photo shoot outside in the rain with my daughter with my beanie from Noggins Beanies. She was having so much fun running around that it was hard to get good, in focus pictures where you could still see the beanies and clips, but I got a few good ones.Don't the flowers look so cute on that great beanie!? I really like the color beanie I have, too, because it's cute by itself but it's a pseudo-neutral (Stacy and Clinton, anyone?) so it looks good with tons of different colors, clothes or flowers! This has gotten me excited for cold, winter weather so I can use this beanie more often!

Oh, and as a teaser, come back on Friday and I'll tell you how you can have the opportunity to win 3 flower clips and one headband for free! Oh, and if you'd like a good deal on your first beanie, head over to Noggins Beanies' blog and look at the side bar to find out how to get 25% off!

Great Fall Find!

One of the things I love doing with my flower clips is attaching one to my daughter's beanies. First of all, she still barely in the "Is that a boy or a girl?" stage. Sticking a flower on her beanie is a great way to clarify that she is a girl! :) Plus, it's just cute. My friend over at Noggins Beanies makes all kinds of darling crocheted beanies that would go so well with a flower clip! Hmm, it seems I don't have any pictures of my daughter in her beanie with a flower? I guess it's only just lately gotten cool enough for that. I think I see a photo shoot coming on... I'll be back with pictures! In the mean time, go check out the cute beanies for adults AND kids at Noggins!

ANOTHER New Line - Boutique Quality Flowers

I decided to start a new "Boutique" Line of flower clips. The construction is the same as my other flower clips, but the flowers I'm using are a very high quality. Here are three of the clips I've made. I'm excited about these because as you can see with the second flower, there are more unique options with this line. Just so you know, the second flower shown is actually on a headband like the other two. The difference is this one is so huge it covers the headband!

New Line

This is the beginning of my new line of flower clippies I'm going to be selling. I want to do flowers for different Universities and possibly sports teams. This one is for the Alabama Crimson Tide. I'm planning on adding flowers for Auburn, BYU, and Duke. Any requests or ideas?

Fall Blooming Flowers?

Yesterday someone bought my last Dramatic PINK Peony Clip. Good thing I just decided to post a Dramatic White and Pink Peony Clip!In fact, I have several new clips coming soon to my shop. I'll post one or two new ones a day, but here's a sneak preview of a couple of the other flowers you can buy soon!
I think the orange flower looks a little Hawaiian, which I'm excited about! Plus, they're both good fall colors, which I'd like to do a little more of since fall is my absolute favorite season. Which of these are your favorite?

Great Giveaway!

Hurry over the the Pink Potpourri for her great Free Giveaway Friday! The necklace she's giving away today is one of my favorite things she's given away so far. She does giveaways every single Friday. In fact, keep an eye out because BabiesBeautiful is scheduled for a Friday in October!

For the Tomboy in Your Life

I just added these cute bow clippies to my shop. I love them because they are a little girly since they're bows, but not too froo-froo, since they're brown, blue, and green! Plus, I decided that if you want to mix-and-match these clippies with any of the other sets-of-six clippie sets in my shop, you can!

Coming soon: What do you think I should call this set? I was thinking something like "Black and White and Pink All Over", but do you have a better idea? If you think up a name for these that I end up using, I'll send you a FREE small flower clip from my shop!

What a find!

So I was just looking at one of the showcases on etsy (a good place to browse if you're feeling bored) and I found a shop I really like. It's Hawaii Titanium Rings. They make all kinds of titanium rings with different inlays. My favorite ring is this one. I would totally buy it if I could think of a good excuse to! Too bad my hubby and I both have the rings we need! Maybe sometime down the road...
