tame those wispy summer locks

From now until this Sunday, all bobby pin sets in my Etsy shop will be 50% off! These are a fun solution to fly-away summer tresses, sun-dried beach-hair, the growing-out-the-bangs phase, the need for a crown of jewels, and everything in between. I have two listings for custom pins, one for a set of two, the other for a set of four. At half price, these unique, made-to-order sets some to just $3 and $6 each! I also have a cute millefiore bobby pin set with a handmade gift bag, only $9 with the discount. Just enter SUMMERPINS in the message box at the checkout, and I will send you a modified Paypal invoice. Thanks for shopping!:


curious urchin :: fabric art

I have been smitten by the fabric collage bug, which flew into my window when I gave birth to Magnoliagirl. Currently, whether I like it or not, my hands must be kept busy at all times sewing shapes and colors and patterns to each other. I am inspired to the point of obsession by the thousands of possibilities when it comes to printed designs on cotton fabric. I love using miniature printed trees, creatures, flowers, suns, stars, as starting points, cutting out around their inked outlines and re-arranging them, intermarrying them, many fabric origins all in one carefully-crafted pattern of my own, a completely original wall hanging that longs for a child to gaze upon it for years to come. These pieces are available for sale at my new Etsy shop, Curious Urchin. Hope you can visit, especially if you're looking for mobiles or teethers for the 2-8 month-old set.
