Horses! Horses! Horses! Horses!

Sorry, I’ve got Christmas carols stuck in my head!

I just listed some of my newest creations… Smarmy hair clips!  This is just a small selection of what I’ve got… phew!

To celebrate, I’m giving away a free hair clip with every clip purchased until January 1st, 2010! They make great gifts (especially stocking stuffers!).

Speaking of gifts, check out this treasury I made, featuring tons of my very talented fellow street team ladies from AttackoftheCraft.com!

This tutorial was filmed using a Creative Labs Vado HD Digital Video Camera, a Canon Rebel (for still shots), and edited in Sony Vegas Movie Studio.

Lots of people ask about making different sized bags. Here are a few sizes to use as guides, but you can of course make a bag of any size with this tutorial.
