What's Up With The Name?

So you're wondering why I named my blog Blissful Blooms? I'm so glad you asked!  I will try to give you the short version of a very fun journey.  Blissfull Blooms is my name for fun flower clips and pins I sell at my favorite local antique shop.  You can check out Colette's store here:
I will have to do an entire post on her store- it's scrumptious!  Colette and I became fast friends because I visit her store as often as I can.  I usually take a detour on my way to the library, or grocery store, or the gym, etc. just to get inspired. I showed Colette my first pin and she was sweet enough to allow me to sell a few in her store.  Since that day, I've had SO MUCH FUN creating these little flowers.  I love that I have a creative outlet!  This opportunity has also given me the courage to be creative and try new things.  I am very thankful for my friend Colette- I can't wait to introduce you to her. 
So here are a few pictures of the clips and pins I made for Easter.

 These lil' guys are so fun to wear!  I have them in SO  MANY COLORS!  I like to add them to my sweater, purse, jacket, etc just to add a pop of color to  my usual mom uniform of jeans and a cardigan.

 My sweet mother-in-law made the Easter dresses for the girls.  So I was able to use the scrap fabric to make pins and clips to match.  Kaitlyn felt so "grown-up" to wear a flower pin like her momma.

I have a dream to open an Etsy shop and attempt to sell these- along with a few other ideas that I can't wait to try.  So hopefully someday soon there will be a little link on the right of my blog that will connect you to Blissful Blooms the SHOP!  Wouldn't that be fun!
So there you have it- the story behind my name!
Hope you have a splendid day!
