Welcome to my blog and newest adventure!! Welcome to Arden's Garden!!

My story is quite simple. I started creating handmade hair accessories for my daughter, Arden one day after shopping at a local boutique. I was astounded that a small clip for a baby was going for over $10. I thought about it over and over in my head....I'd have to spend over $200. just to start a decent collection of hair accessories for my little girl. And, how much money would I actually be spending over the years (especially during those expensive tween years! YIKES)?! I didn't even want to think about it.

It was Christmas time and I made a cute Christmas Tree hair clip for Arden. We went to the San Diego Zoo for their annual 'Jungle Bells'. Well, time after time someone wanted to know where I purchased that hair clip. And the light bulb went off!!! ;) Why not make some and try and sell them?! My goal is to keep prices low and create handmade accessories for yourself, your little one's or as a great gift!

So, here we are. I've just started a small inventory of items that I sell for everyone to view on my blog. I sure hope you like what you see! If you do, then just contact me and let me know what I can do for you.

I also make other items such as; woven headbands, burp clothes, draft dodgers, and miniature blankies for babies. I will post pictures as often as I can with new items, fabrics, grosgrain's, etc....
