You gotta see this!!!!

Well, my Silicone No Slip Grip Tutorial seems to be going over pretty good. I was actually very nervous that no one would want it :). Anyway, I just wanted to share a video that LittleCansOfBeans made after she bought the tutorial and made some no slip grips!

I thought I'd share one of my other passions. I love to sew, especially Punky's Halloween costumes. I haven't sewn much since last Halloween. So it took me longer than I expected and ended up having to buy Munky's costume at the store (oh the horror I felt!). We had a beautiful day so we didn't have to cover up costumes with winter coats, hats, and gloves! Yay!

Silicone No Slip Grip Secrets Revealed!

Available now in my Etsy shop! "How To Make Silicone No Slip Grips For Hair Clips" in a PDF that can be emailed right to you!

I have been asked time and time again for my "secret" method for making no slip grips. I've been very protective of it until now, I am offering it to you all now in a PDF that is 11 pages of easy to read text with 20 clear pictures to show you every step of the way! I tell you what supplies I use, and various methods I use to make the grips!

When making this tutorial I did an experiment. The first picture below was taken in the morning before school (the model has very fine slippery hair), then she came home at 3:30, played outside with some friends (running around, cartwheels, and tree climbing). All this time I did not touch her hair or bow, and neither did she. At dinner time her hair was a wreck (as you can imagine after all that play), but as you can see in the second picture, the bow is still almost in the same place 8 hours later!!! All other no slip grips I have tried never held in her hair through that much abuse!

All my hair bows and clips are made with this lining now unless otherwise asked for! Please visit my shop to see all that I have to offer!

Under Construction!

I am playing around with different backgrounds and font colors. Don't be shocked if it is different everytime you visit for awhile :). Unfortunately I sometimes get interupted in the middle of things and don't get to finish. I'll let you know when I've settled LOL!!! The one I have right now is sooo not "IT" but I'm tired and am giving it a rest for now. Hope it doesn't hurt your eyes!
