A Simple Little Gift

This past weekend, we were invited to a new neighbor's house to celebrate their daughter's birthday. L and this sweet little girl have become buddies. It's soooo nice for L to have a friend her own age in the neighborhood!

We're living on a law school budget these days so gifts have to be of the inexpensive variety. Although our neighbor said that we didn't need to bring a gift, we wanted to bring a little something anyway. So, I whipped up a sweet little hairclip for our new friend.

I just love hairclips! Being a momma of two girls, I love that I can just pull their hair back with a little clip, and it can add a bit of fancy to their outfits. Best of all, they are so easy, fun, and inexpensive to make on your own. Although I've made hairclips out of felt flowers, puckered satin, and even felt starfish, my favorite ones are from these satin & rhinestone flowers that I created for DIY Your Way. So far, I think these flowers are still my favorite of all of my DIY Your Way crafts. They just make me smile!
