Indexing Bobby Pins

I just finished packaging my new Index Bobby Pins to debut at the Cowtown Indie Bazaar this weekend, Saturday, Oct. 15, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Fort Worth, TX. They are perfect for the bibliophile of any age. The Index Bobby Pin is replacing the Heidi Bobby Pin, but continues the use of recycled book pages in the packaging. 

While the Heidi featured illustrations and text from a vintage edition of Heidi, the Index is on actual index cards and has delicate little paper leaves cut from Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice. Note, the leaves are not part of the hair accessory, just part of the packaging.

Check out the nifty box for my index cards. I feel very organized. The Index Bobby Pin is not available  in my Etsy shop yet. Come see me at a show or send me an email if you're interested.

P.S. Just added to my shop here. Free gift wrapping available!

Here is my submission for the Etsy Dallas Chairity Event, October 13, 6:30-9 p.m., Blue Room, South Side on Lamar, 1409 S. Lamar, Dallas, TX 75215. My chair was inspired by new Modest Ambition logo design by La Alicia! I transformed our adorable little chair into a tree--a chair-i-tree! Wouldn't a fluffy little squirrel look cute sitting in this tree/chair?

Here's the info from the Etsy Dallas website:
