Back To School Bonanza Giveaway #1: Tie a Little Ribbon

I am going BACK TO SCHOOL this week, and I thought I would end the summer with a bang…of giveaways!

Krystal over at Tie a Little Ribbon Boutique makes the absolute CUTEST hair accessories for little girls (and big girls too!)  I “met” Krystal via twitter, and because she was sassy and hilarious, I headed on over to her blog and her boutique and my uterus about squeed for my to have a little girl JUST so I could get some cute hair clippys and headbands!

Krystal “specializes in no-slip clips and headbands,” and she loves to do custom orders!  And?  The best part?  You don’t have to be teeny to where what she is making!

 Even though these precious itty bitties would look SOOO cute in little piggy tails or perched atop a head of curls, she also can make flowers for YOUR hair 
Ahem, mine are on their way to my house as I type this.  I’m just saying.  Teachers have to look nice for back to school too you know.

See?  So dang cute!

You can find Krystal’s blog, Tie a Little Ribbon here, and follower her on twitter here.
