Autumn Blossom - Flower Hair Clip or Pin Brooch

I whipped this up to wear to a fundraiser last night for the Valley Achievement Center, which is a special school for children with Autism.  The dress needed a little something for my hair, so I layered brown and cream felt, topped it off with a nest of chocolate brown French knots.

I think it would look fabulous on a scarf or lapel too!

Custom University Sports Hair Clips

I had a lot of fun with this one!  I recently had a request for a wee Indiana University fan!  The custom designs included a football, basketball, and a reproduction of the University logo.

If interested in a custom hair clip or pin of YOUR University or team, send me a message!

Gap Navy and Pink Whale Hair Clip Match

Making the whale clip to match the Jeanine Johnsen outfit inspired me to make a match for Julia's Gap whale T-shirt.  I don't think it is still being sold in Gap stores, but I think it is such a cute little shirt, and Julia really likes it.  She has some cute whale jammies from Gap as well.

Navy and Pink Splash the Whale Hair Clip or Pin $6.50

Jeanine Johnsen Pink and Navy Whale Match

A recent request had me matching this adorable line by Jeanine Johnsen.  I modified "Splash" to coordinate by removing his flipper, closing his mouth, and adding a spread double spout.

Peace on Earth

The second holiday design I drew-up today is a white dove.  She is hand embroidered with white and baby blue embroidery thread.  Inside is a 1.5 inch snap clip.

Gingerbread Man Hair Clip or Pin Brooch

I woke up at 3:30 and couldn't go back to sleep, so I took advantage of the quiet and started work on my holiday designs.  This is the first of them, after my poll popular vote of Gingerbread Man.  I think I'll also do a Gingerbread Girl... feedback and suggestions are greatly appreciated (like other color suggestions, etc.)!

Thank you to all who gave input on my holiday designs!  I will definitely work on a gingerbread man (most popular idea), as well as other suggested and voted on designs.  I'm planning to have my holiday designs done by the end of September, so check back often for updates!

Pammy Dawn - International

This evening, as I was contemplating a recent order to the UK, I thought it would be interesting to plot all the locations I've shipped Pammy Dawn creations since opening shop in March.  

I stumbled upon this website after searching to plot locations on a map - it allowed me to enter locations of all the clips/pins I've shipped to date, and .... voila!  Instant map!  You can even click the little points on the map, and up pops the location name.  Zoom in or see the map in Satellite photo view!  So much fun!  I think I'll be sure to keep this updated - find this tool on the left-hand side of my blog.  Just click the colorful flag globe!
