Etsy Wedding Event Slideshow

Hello all!  I found a nice slideshow of the 2012 Etsy Wedding Event that I was a part of :]  You can see my ivory flower barrette @ 1:25:

Here's a link to the piece shown: Vanilla Blossom

Limited quantity - Night Storm bobby pins

Well unfortunately they've discontinued the slate blue silk that I use for my Night Storm bobby pins, so I'll only be making 3 more sets :/

Night Storm kanzashi bobby pins
 I'm hoping that I can find a good color match for the silk and be able to at least recreate the look. 

PS: This design was featured in Real Simple magazine :]

Cherry Kimono is back!

I've reworked this piece to have a toothed alligator clip instead of the smooth clip it used to have. The toothed style is a huge improvement imo, it hangs on to even the slickest hair.  Woo woo \o/  You can find it here  :] 

Cherry Kimono

PS - this can now be purchased as a brooch, on a headband, or even onto a bobby pin.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Kitty and Snacks!

So on a message board I visit, someone mentioned that Target sells these ridiculously cute Hello Kitty gummy vitamins.  I actually already take adult gummy vitamins (I know, I know), so naturally these would be an obvious choice.  But to my dismay, they're only available online :[  I figure I'll just have to stick with my current boring adult gummy vitamins, when what arrives in the mail?  HELLO KITTY VITAMINS.  Yep, my husband ordered them on the sly :D  Awesome, right?

And then today, my haul of yummy Japanese snacks from Asian Food Grocer arrived :D  Look at all of this deliciousness:

Yep, life is good :]

Introducing coordinating items!

In order to provide greater selection, I've started creating new pieces in a variety of hardware types.  For my first set, I've chosen to make Coral Garden in brooch, large alligator clip, and bobby pins.  Each piece is available separately here :]
