Etsy Artist of the Week

This week, my Etsy Artist of the Week is Posh Pretties. She makes the most adorable hair accessories for little girls. I'm amazed at how creative she is and the things she can do with ribbon!

Here's a little bit from the artist:

Although I am new to Etsy, I have been making bows and polymer creation for over a year, and I am also the owner of

For as long as I can remember I have been crafting and creating things. From painting clothes and making my own jewelry and hair accessories as a teen, to making unique items with polymer clay and hair accessories for my own daughter. My styles has changed and evolved over the years, a little more grown up now, but still unique and with my own personal spin on them.

I offer boutique style hair bows, woven ribbon headbands, seasonal hair bows, creative clippies, as well as many adorable polymer clay items, and the new Flutterclay Creations.

All of my items are handmade by me. I take great care and use only high quality ribbon in all of my bows and artist grade polymer clay in my clay items. All layered and loopy bows are hand sewn and all ribbon ends are heat sealed to prevent fraying, even the ends you don't see.

Most items ship within 24 hours of payment.

I love custom orders, convo me for more information.

Go visit her shop, and show her some love!

A Little Something Sparkly

I've had this bracelet in my shop for about a month and a half. I love it! The funny thing is that I almost didn't make it at all.

I started on it around Christmas and got about half way through and something just wasn't doing it for me. I'm still not sure what that something was.

So, as I usually do when I get "beader's block", I just walked away from it and let it sit. When I started up on it again, I changed a few beads around and some sort of magic happened. Now I love it. Like everything in my shop, it has sparkle. Everyone needs some sparkle - daily!
