♥.♥.♥.♥ About Me ♥.♥.♥.♥
I am a Mom from the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, WA. My daughter is almost 5 years old and spends most of her day teaching me how to look at the world from a child's perspective. We're creative, energetic and often messy.

♥.♥.♥.♥ Why Ballard Clips? ♥.♥.♥.♥
I began purchasing clips for my daughter's long, fine hair around the time she turned 1 year old. Matching the clips to her much-more-fashionable-than-mom's outfits became a new obsession but the clips would not stay in her hair! A couple of glue guns and burned fingers later, Ballard Clips was born.

Start-to-finish, my process entails heat-sealing each ribbon's end, applying hot glue to the backside of the high quality velvet ribbon and then methodically wrapping the ribbon along the entire metal hair clip. The fun part is selecting the embellishment that will be added to the top of the clip prior to finishing. Unique details on each individual clip can be found in my listings.
