so, i made more clips.
like a ton more. and then my neighbor walked down (her daughters come and play with aves almost everyday) to pick up her girls and saw the clips. she told me to try and sell them at a consignment store around the corner and kept asking how much they were...so, even though they are pretty much clips, hot glue and felt, im gonna give it a try.
i got kinda excited about it, even though i have no idea if they will sell, and celeste came in town and i told her. my friend jennifer came in town, too, and we just had the best weekend. we laughed and stayed up late and made tons more clips, headbands, clips for shoes, pins and necklaces. it was really so much fun.

my dream in life is to someday have a bakery called sassarina's (after my food loving youngest daughter). we decided to use sassarina's for the clips (when the bakery comes along, it will have to be a multi-use name) and we added a little bird to the s (just for fun).

So fun and SO cute!

My 2 cents:
They seem to sell better in stores when you bring in coordinating "collections". I personally prefer to sell them to the store out right and not consign and have to come back to collect. If you van do it that way it is easier.

start a blog with pictures and contact info and print that on your cards somewhere...people love to have a site to go look at!

you clips are adorable. best of luck to ya:)
