a bit of a bio :: I am city girl from Chicago, but my heart is in South Carolina where my family currently resides. I love to travel, do anything creative, and spend time with my crazy family. All of the products found in my shop are handmade and created by moi. The shop is stocked with handmade accessories - from beautiful poppy headbands (my most popular item!!!), lovely rings, colorful hair clips and corsages. I am a fan of color - so you'll find lots of bright, happy colors throughout my shop. I have also had a handful of custom requests for headbands - so if you don't see your favorite color combo in the store, I am more than happy to work with you directly.

congratulations to: kim who commented, this weekend i'm selling at my first farmer's market! :)

thank you ilene joyce for sharing your talents.
please visit her shop + blog.
