Hair Frenzy, Adding a Little Fuzzy to Your Hair in 2011!

Why hello 2011, nice to meet you!  Sorry it took me so long to greet you but I've been taking a much needed break from your frantic sister, 2010.  She kind of wore me out last year.

I'd like you to see what I've been up to.  It involves flowers & felt and I think you'll kinda dig it since Spring is on the way.

I made these for Valentines Day, they were such a hit they sold out before I could even get them up in my Etsy shop!  I've made tons more since and in an array of spring & summery colors.  I hope you love them.  All I have to do is wait for you to bless us Portland folk with a little more of that sunshine stuff & I'll be able to photograph them.

I've been playing with other materials too, mostly metal.  See!

 Well, that's about all I've been doing hair wise lately.  Just wanted to show you I haven't been ignoring you entirely, 2011.  Aside from new hair flair I've also made new ribbon bracelets, pocket mirrors, necklaces, rings & earrings.  Some of which I'll be showing off soon at Buckman Elementary in March and local shops around town this month like Mag-Big, Union Rose, Mississippi Treehouse, Plue & The Crafty Wonderland Pop-up Shop!  So excited & glad to get things going again.  Will talk to you again soon!
