Feathers & Sparkles Everywhere

Right now it looks like a bird filled with glitter, gems & everything pretty has exploded in my art room.  Jake is loving the mess and has already run off with a couple feathers in his mouth.  Chris thankfully hasn't seen it, and I'll be keeping the door shut to avert his judging eyes.  But, the craft day with Mo was a great success!

My visit to British Columbia has left me with an obsession for feathered hair pieces.  They are so pretty and paired with glitter, pearls, mirrors, gems and/or flowers can make them adaptable for any season.


My inspiration piece whenever I dive into making feathered hair accessories was bought in a little store outside of Victoria called Baja Rosi's. I love it! And any excuse to wear it, it's in my hair... no matter what the occasion. 


These pieces, I made with Jaclyn.  She has made some really pretty ones too. 
























All of the  brown based, pearl & shell pieces I sent to my sister as a "back to school" gift.  Plus I felt bad that I couldn't help her with the move out to her school-time home. 
























Today's hair pieces are going to be kept secret for a little while.  Mo & I have big plans on how we want to present them... and possibly make a lot more.  Our theme for this batch is "holiday cheer"... hence the sparkle explosion.  Some of the pieces will be gifts for some of the loved ones of Mo & me... the others we are still debating on what to do.  Hopefully they are liked by others as much as we adore them. xo

I love secert crafts! That's what I'm doing too. I love my craft room mainly cause I can do what you do, shut the door. Bahaha.

I love the idea of hair pieces and making them by hand gives them a special quality. Someone would be very lucky to receive one as a gift.

Adorable!!! I love feathered hair pieces but they can be quite expensive at retail value- so what a great idea to DIY!
