Going Bananas!

With one week left before the 2011 Walnut Creek Family Fest, we have been very busy with preparations for the event and making new products to add to our collection of hair accessories.  Add to that chasing after our three girls, being carpool drivers, homework, attending playdates, etc. and we are indeed going bananas!  In as much as we have been so busy, we really can't complain.  The joy and excitement we feel over the overwhelming response we have gotten so far for Kitten and Nana more than makes up for it.

We just added these cute little monkeys to our store.  The Trisha & Francis Hair Elastics are sold in pairs.  Like the Corduroy Owl Clips, they are handmade with love from felt and are  perfectly imperfect.  I must say, we really are getting very good at mastering our clip-making skills.

Trisha and Francis
You know how some of our products are inspired by or named after actual people, places, events, etc. in our lives?  Well, as I was making these hair elastics, they were the first ones to pop into my head.  Meet my good friends, Trisha & Francis...

Theirs is a story of true love and friendship.  They have been together for so long, yet everything about them is so new.  I have such admiration not only for their devotion and commitment to each other, but also for proving that the honeymoon never ends.

Oh, and did I mention that they happen to LOVE monkeys??? :-)
