All About M.E. is a home-based business where we make quality, hand-made hair clippies, bows and accessories for girls of all ages.

The M.E. stands for Marin Eleanor - the name of our little girl. She is the inspiration and motivation behind our Clippies.

What Makes M.E. Different?

Creating hair clips began as a simple craft project: Make a few Clippies for our little girl.

We weren’t satisfied with the quality of clips found at department stores and prices for boutique hair accessories were astronomical – especially if clips were lost or broken soon after they were purchased! We knew we could make them better and less expensive – plus it would be fun… Mom is happiest with a glue-gun in hand!

We knew we could make them better and less expensive – plus it would be fun… Mom is happiest with a glue-gun in hand!

With the encouragement of friends and family, we decided to make a go of a home-based business and “All About M.E.” began to take shape eventually becoming what you see here. We have more growing to do and we look forward to what the future holds.

Except for our basic bows, the Clippies we make are unique and you will not see them anywhere else. Only a few pairs of each style are made - sometimes only one set is made... a true original! We like to buy a bunch of supplies, make a collage or collection and exhaust our creativity and supplies - once the ribbon and bows are used up, they may not be restocked. So if you like a Clippie, snap them up - they may not be available next time you visit us!

A few reasons we think you'll LOVE our Clippies:

* Clippies are made with quality ribbon and embellishments.
* We use quality alligator clips, snap clips and French barrettes.
* We use Velcro to lessen the chance the Clippie will slip out of very fine hair.
* Bows are hand-made and securely tied to the clip and glued in place.
* Whenever possible, ribbon ends are heat treated and/or fray-check is applied to help prevent fraying.
* Color combinations, trimmings, accessories and clip ideas are often suggested by our 3 year old ~ Clippie durability is tested by same 3 year old
* Our 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you’re not happy, we’ll make you happy – or you can go to your room.

Process of Making M.E.

A lot of thought and effort goes into making our Clippies. Hours spent at craft stores as a family – while I try to find interesting supplies, my husband entertains our two kids by running through the silk flower aisle howling like a monkey, playing hide-and-seek as if they were in a jungle.

There are the late nights measuring and treating ribbon, snatching free moments to assemble Clippies between diaper changes (after washing our hands, of course!), mealtimes, and a million other kid-centered activities.

My favorite moment happened at the park. I watched my son (unasked) pick up my basket of Clippies, walk over to other Mommies at the park, proudly showing them what his Mommy had made and ask if they wanted any… :)
