Surprise!

"When I was born, I was so surprised
I couldn't talk for a year and a half." ~ Gracie Allen

He, he. Cute. In the nature of surprise and suprises, I have a special grab bag of barrettes. I was organizing my studio {yes--you need pictures, I'll get on it!} when I came across a box full of snipits of fabric. I felt bad just throwing them away, so I decided to make little clips out of them instead. These are ridiculously fun to make. In fact, I would wear my bath robe until dinner time, let the kids starve, and never clean the kitchen and just make barrettes all day--they're that fun. But don't worry, I did get dressed, feed my kids, and... well, two out of three is not bad.

It's been in the hundreds for quite some time here *ick,* so I took the kids to an indoor playground while I photographed these on the concrete outside, despite dirty looks from other moms. Hey, in my defense, I was maybe 20 feet away and could see them through a wall of glass. It's not like I took the monitor and went for a five mile jog while they were napping, though I know of a mom that does that. Anyway.....

The set is $16.50 and includes 4 barrettes; you can purchase 2 for $30, just use the code 2FER in the notes to seller. I haven't done a giveaway in a long time, so the first person to leave a comment gets a FREE set! {Be sure to read the listing description to leave your one word.}

I have so many things to blog about.... pictures, ideas, interesting happenings. For a long time now you have probably heard me talk about a "big business project;" well, I'm getting very close to sharing that with you! It's a very exciting but very busy time.... all while I am going out of my mind having my kids in the heat and unstructured nature of the summer. They are writing on the walls in sharpie, super gluing fabric to my sewing machine, cutting their own hair. Honestly, it's crazy. Aidan has also taken to repeating me, so I hear questions from him like:

"You hungry, sweetie?"

"Can I get you something to drink?"

"You look tired, sweatheart. Do you feel tired? I think it's time for a rest."

The other day he asked me if I needed a cup of coffee. I didn't even realize that I was using those terms of endearment. Sweet heart, do I really say that? Well, it could be much worse. I hope I can get to the rest of my blog posts soon. Hope you are well and enjoying your summer! *smooch*

I was so excited I forgot my word! I think I will go with feminine! I noticed in the listing that you said you would coordinate with a pair of shoes if they were bought together, does it count if one coordinates with the rose bloom shoes that I just bought?

Jessica Haley said...

Congrats, Jen. Of course that counts! I already have your address. I'm sorry I still haven't email you--I will. It's just, well, pull out your hair crazy some days. I'm still working on some extra help with the kiddos....

Mrs.LifeAccounts said...

yay! I'm so excited! I'll watch for your email (take your time though), I've been keeping you and your family in my prayers!

Hana said...

Oh Jess, these are simply adorable! Love them all! I love the flower clip you sent for Ella a while back so I may have to order some of these when I have the extra spending $. Too cute for words. Glad to see ya back to making new things!!

Jessica Haley said...

Thanks, Hana. Sounds like you had a good trip. When are you coming to Houston? I'd love to have lunch!

Ariana said...

Those are adorable! I was hoping the bag consisted of 100 of those:) Wishful thinking, huh? Have a great day!

Jessica Haley said...

100? Ha! Ariana, you're killing me....

Kati said...

Too bad I have boys!! I love your stuff.

Jessica Haley said...

I know, Kati, I've been seriously slacking on my boy stuff lately. Feel free to offer any suggestions for boy items. I just had a great idea for a new boy shoe that I hope to get to soon.
