Displaying my Inner-Mormon

So after wearing my sunglasses as headbands for the past couple years, I decided to spend a little bit of my makeup-buying budget on some real headbands. However, headbands can be addicting; once you buy one, what's a few dozen more? Yet as I was looking for headbands, I had a hard time finding the ones I had in mind. So, I thought, why don't I make my own? Which is exactly what I did! I made this one below:

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

As you can imagine, I was quite proud of my creation, as it was just what I envisioned, and little did I know I would get tons and tons of compliments- everywhere I go women stare at my head, only to comment how much they love my headband. At first, I thought of telling them I made it myself, but I didn't want them to get the idea that they could go and make their own too. That's MY secret :)

Now I have tons more feathers and plain headbands waiting to be joined in unison:

So if you wonder where I am, I am probably working in my slave shop. I love craft time- I must be Mormon! :)

What do you think of my headband idea?

It's cute, but if you make an etsy shop selling them, I will not patronize.... Just sayin!

Actually, I think this headband would look really cute on you, especially with your hair color- so if I ever have the drive to end up on etsy, I expect you to be first in line, missy!

So very lovely! I want one! Really though I am very impressed with your industry. Like a bee you are!

The Boob Nazi said...

haha I just have a blogger I HATE who just opened a headband shop, and I refuse to patronize!
Giving me a headband for a gift, however, wouldn't be against my rules.
(And I wrote headbang. ha)

Dang, if everyone else is doing it, then I am kinda turned off by the idea. I mean it's all for fun anyways, because I enjoy being scalded by the glue gun and choking on feather particles. But maybe I'll just keep it down-low, and yes, maybe send them to my favorite bloggers for the price of free + $100 shipping :) haha jk.

I LOOOVE your headband. I love headbands but haven't ever found cute ones. You look way hawt in that and the snuggie.

Cute Idea. Make it in pink or purple and Macey would think you were a genius. When i saw your posts about feather headbands, this was not what i was envisioning, but they are way cute.
