Save the childrens handmade community!

Due to a new law starting February 10th anything made for 12 years and under must be tested and certified which costs thousands of dollars. This will put a lot of people out of business. Including Wainbows! The law is good for big mass produced stuff but it doesnt make sence for the little guys because we are already buying safe supplies! Please vote and try to save us!


Thank you for your support!

Featured Tuesday X 2!

Well I didn't get around to featuring last week because it was my Birthday. So today we get two special shops!!

I got this wallet from my best friend for my Birthday. I picked it out but it is my most favorite wallet in my entire life! I love it so much. It holds a ton of stuff and it even has a zippered pouch for change! It is very sturdy and feels like it can hold up for years! I cant even explain how happy I am to have this wallet! You can just tell that she puts a lot of time and love into these! A ++ for quality!!!!

Pinkracoon has great bags! They are quality made and so cute! This one is my favorite! She also has small pouches that can be used to hold pencils, coin purses, ipod pouches and more!

I really love this guy too, he is so fun! Who else would you want to hold your pencils??

Pinkracoon also made my new etsy banner! Isn't it great! She doesn't sell them yet though, lets bug her to start so we can all get one just as neat!
Thanks guys!!

Featured Tuesday -

I will make a tradition out of featuring a special shop every Tuesday.

Today is Shupg's turn in my spotlight. The first time I saw Shupg's shop, I was an instant fan! I've never seen anything like this ever! It amazes me that more people haven't caught on to her shop. Her items are unique and cute!

Here is an excerpt from Shupg's Profile

"I'm happiest when I sit by my worktable and dreaming up new items or just letting my mind go wild and exploring possibilities. I can sit and daydream for hours!

I'm inspired by Dogs. Books. Green leafy plants. Ranuculus flowers. retro clocks with big numbers. peonies. jazz. classical music. gyspy music. caravans. view of the world zipping past outside the bus on a rainy day (look beyond eye level, look upwards for a whole bus trip, what you see may just surprise you!). window sills. will be back to add on to the list."

So my best friend liked my bobby pins but she said the buttons were too big for her. I got some little buttons to try out and here's what they look like! I think they are really cute. I only got a few but I might have to get some more!

(comparing small and larger buttons)

Please let me know what you think!

I got these from ChearieFearie. They are so incredibly cute!! They are for my daughter for a stocking stuffer. She will love them! They are magnets! What a neat idea!

Next is my coin purse from Nilaandcamille. Its so cute! I'm going to carry my business cards in it!

And lastly we have my new fabric!!! These are just a few of my favorites but I got my scrap bag from Sewlovefabrics. They are so bright and yummy!

First blog!

This is my first blog on the new site! Wainbows is my little slice of etsy. I make handcrafted hair accessories for girls of all ages. I dove in on a whim in early September of this year and I havent looked back since. I enjoy every aspect of my etsy shop. I started making alligator clips lined with designer ribbon.

I've recently started induldging in the bobby pin world and I love it! I love picking out my fabric and making the buttons that top them.
