Thank you to all who participated and visited for the first time. I hope you will stay awhile.

Winners, I will contact you via email and give you the email address for Mommy's Happy Place so you can claim your prize! Congratulations!
Isn't it great when you discover a hidden talent among your friends? I work with this great person, Tamra, who is a librarian at our school. She is so good at keeping me in the loop of new good books and just being there in general.

One day, I was perusing her FB page to see she was making deliveries of pins and hair accessories. I had no clue she had such a talent. I knew she was a crafter like me, but didn't know what she made. I asked her about it and she sent me to her link- Mommy's Happy Place. She also has a shop on etsy here.

These are such great little pins and clips. Great for adults and kids alike. I loved that I could get the clip type I wanted for the design I liked. There were things for all ages. I found some that I thought would be great for cheerleaders, others for myself, mom, friends. It's great. You can even custom order items!

I ended up finding one I loved and immediately placed my order. I had it the next day (because she delivered to work). It was even more beautiful in person than online (isn't that the way it goes?!).
Check out some of her work:

Alexis Style
Mariah Style


Danielle- blue poinsettia
Pinked Danielle




Just have to say, how could would the Mary design be on a lil one if attached to a headband? What about the Keira as a cool pin on a jacket? I just love the Lisa too. How cute as a clip on a cardigan? 

In order to start the new year off right, Mommy's Happy Place is going to give away 2 accessories- 1 to 2 different winners. The great thing about it, you choose the clip you want and the design you like! In order to win, leave a comment with the style and clip you like. Winners will be chosen at random on Friday, Jan. 6 and announced on this site that evening.

Isn't it great when you find out a friend has a talent you didn't know about?! Love it!


  1. I love good finds like this Cheri! Awesome!

    I think my daughter would love the Adelaide style as a hair clip - a little bit funky, but so cute!

  2. I commented earlier but it didn't post.

    Anyway.. I like the Lisa flower. It would probably look good in an adults hair given the right occassion.
    I don't always comment on your blog, but I have read every one that you've posted.

    Feel better soon Cheri

  3. Love these bows (almost as much as I love the gal who makes them!). I especially like the Adelaide, however, I think the Lisa would look best on me attached to a spring-loaded clip (to attach to a headband or use as a pull-back since I have short hair).

    Such cute designs!

  4. I think Alexis is adorable, it reminds of some of the smaller clips from gymboree.

    Great stuff in general.

  5. I love them all, but my favorite is the Lisa, simple cute and goes with everything....
    Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  6. Something about that blue Danielle poinsettia! So gorgeous!

  7. I like them all and after a long time of looking at all of them I had to pick one so I went with the Adelaide!!! I like how it unique and not simple

  8. I think the Adelaide would be adorable in my daughters hair!

  9. I like the Lisa! They are all very pretty!

  10. My granddaughter would like the Lisa or the Pinked Danielle.
