|Regal Blue Taffeta Flower Hair Clip/Pin with Silver Swarovski Crystal|
I'm a SAHM of two. My dear husband and I have a 2-1/2 year old daughter and a 3-month-old son. Before having children, I was an adoption counselor and supervisor, work that I loved but was too demanding with being a mom - the most important job I have ever had!
What type of merchandise will shoppers find in your shop?
Swarovski crystal hair pins in every color! Plus, bridal tiaras and hair vines. Recently, I have added sequin hair pins for girls, tweens, teens and adults!
|Sequin Flower Hair Pins|
I have been "creating" things since I was a little girl. My mom always said if I was bored, I should "make" something. About 15 years ago, I began beading with seed beads. I worked my way thru a couple of bead magazines and learned all the stitches I could find. Seed beading and babies aren't compatible for me -- but I realized that the wedding jewelry and hair accessories that I made for my own wedding and a friend's were marketable.
What is your favorite part of your craft?
I have always loved the sense of accomplishment when creating and now I love working with a bride to create exactly what she is envisioning for her wedding day.
|Delicate Cream Swarovski Pearl and Crystal Flower Hair Pins|

What inspires you to create?
The love and passion that accompanies a wedding!

Being a mom comes first. Naptime is a fabulous opportunity for me to do all the managing of my shop. Often I must wait until my husband is home to handle orders and create new items.
What is your favorite thing to browse Etsy for?
I love to surf for gifts. Sometimes I focus on treasuries, and other times I use the pounce function.
