Blooming Into Something Big
I have always loved simple. You know...the "less is more" approach when it comes to how I decorate my home and what I wear. I could never find anything like that when it came to hair accessories for my daughters. Because of that...they never wore anything in their hair. If I did come across an expensive clip in a boutique it wouldn't even stay in their hair.
So I started making my own. It was the perfect hobby for a perfectionist like me. First and foremost...I made sure my hair accessories were comfortable to wear and would stay in the hair. A couple weeks after I opened my Etsy shop I got three orders in one day. I couldn't believe it! Then...it took off from there. I have taught myself how to take photographs, network, package and ship. It is all me. Everything you see....that was me!
I started with a handful of supplies on my dining room table. Now I have a craft room that always looks like a bomb went off. Little Blooms has grown from a few flower hair clips to wool felt flowers and bows, German glass glitter stars, and cabochon flower jewelry. I'm sure it will keep growing!
I think it's safe to say as I am working into the wee hours of the night...this has become a full time job. I still think of it as my "little hobby" but I'm beginning to realize it is so much more than that. Little Blooms has bloomed into something big.

Additional policies and FAQs
*Frequently Asked Questions*
-Why does you shop close so often?"
I only take 20 orders each time I open my shop unless otherwise stated. That way I can get all the orders made and shipped within a week or so. It also allows me to have a couple days off every week. I typically open every Friday and stay open for 1 to 2 days.
-What is your turnaround time?
My turnaround time varies but is usually up to 10 business days. These turnaround times are an estimate and depending on my order volume each week...it can be a little more or less. Sometimes it take me a week to complete all the orders I get in a single day!! Please be sure to include your color choices (if applicable) and correct address so I can get your order made and shipped ASAP! If you don't leave color choices (if applicable) it can make it take several additional days before your order can ship. If you need your order by a certain date (a party, birth of a baby, etc.) but don't want to do a rush order...please contact me before purchasing and I'll work with you to get your order made as soon as possible.
-What is your "rush order" listing?
You can purchase my "rush order" listing which will get your order made and shipped in 1 business day from time of payment and upgrade your shipping to priority. Please contact me for large orders before purchasing the rush order listing...to ensure I can get everything made and shipped out in time!
-My order was marked as shipped but it hasn't shipped. Why not?
Sometimes I print invoices and shipping labels at the same time to keep my orders organized. When a label is printed the order is marked as shipped. Please allow 24-48 hours after an order has been marked as shipped to be picked up at the post office and added to tracking.
-I ordered from a different shop and from Little Blooms on the same day and I received the other shop's items much sooner than when I received the items from Little Blooms. Why?
Please keep in mind that every shop on Etsy is different...with a different turnaround time. Some shops have all of their headbands and hair clips already made so they will ship out right away. My shop is all "made to order" because you can choose your own colors. My shop is more of a custom shop so you will have to wait longer to receive a custom item. Every item you purchase from Little Blooms is made just for you!
-How big is your one size fits all nylon headband?
The nylon headbands are awesome because they comfortably fit newborns, adults, and every size in between!
I offer specific sizes in my skinny white elastic. Please see listing details for additional info. Any bloom or bow can be made into any size headband. You can leave me the exact head measurement for the best fit possible.
-Do all your clips have a "no slip grip"?
My felt hair clips come on a felt wrapped alligator clip with a "no slip grip." If you prefer to not have the "no slip grip" added to your hair clip please let me know in the "note to seller" section at checkout. My leather and fabric clips do not come with a no slip grip unless requested.
-Is your felt 100% wool?
Not all of my felt is 100% wool. Some of my colors are 100% wool and some are a blend of wool and rayon
