Hi my name is Rachel, and I'm addicted to Etsy. Etsy in general but this week specifically... MayCrimson's shop (you can click on her name if you'd like to check out her shop... I HIGHLY recommend it). She features felt barrettes, and I heart them. Last year at Blacksburg's annual "Steppin' Out" festival, there was a booth that had tutus, pillowcase dresses... anything adorably necessary for a little girl. ;) She also happened to have some felt barrettes. I bought two of them for Reese. One was a purple owl, and the other was a little brown puppy dog. They are literally to die for. She wore them everyday. Then when I was in California, I bought 4ish more for the girls from a little boutique. I decided that this was going to be my new addiction, and that I would need to learn how to make them if I wanted to stay married. :) I immediately jumped on and found some great great vendors. One vendor had two Mickey/Minnie Mouse barrettes that I bought for the girls for our approaching trip to Disney World. Then I copied a bunch of pictures of the ones I couldn't live with out... I mean ones the girls couldn't live without. ;) Now my new adventure is to create them myself. Good thing I'm crafty because they are GORGEOUS. These are 4 of the dozens that I adored from MayCrimson's shop. Why didn't I have these when I was little?!
