I’ve been getting so many emails asking questions. I thought I’d address many of them here! The segment didn’t allow for me to talk about every little detail so here you go!
Q: Wait? Where do you buy your Broaches?
A: DownEast Clearance Center comes through again!!! All the beautiful broaches I had in the segment were bought for $1.99 at DownEast Clearance Center! They were Ann Taylor and JCrew Accessories.It’s not the regular DownEast but the Clearnace Center in Salt Lake. This location specializes in DownEast Cloths and accessories.

Q: What size ribbon was I working with?
A: The Brown Ribbon was 1.5″ thick. It’s my favorite size to use when making a headband for an adult! I use 5/8th” ribbon for the ones I make for my girls! I also made a few with Silk and Satin Ribbon and Lace! Basically anything goes!
Q: Can I make this without a sewing machine?
A: YES!! You can also fold a pleat and glue it down with hot glue to get the same look but you won’t be able to pin a broach through! the glue is just too thick!
Q: What is that Organizer Called? I can’t find it on the IKEA Website!
A: Sadly IKEA doesn’t sell every single item that they sell in their store on line! Because it’s an accessory and a smaller item it’s not online. I’m not even sure what it’s called! But its initial intention is to organize belts and scarves and is on display in the bedroom department. Sorry I’m not much help!
Q: Did you make your Ribbon holder?
A: Yes I did! I have a post about it found HERE!!!!
Q: Where did you get your Outfit? (seriously someone asked this!!)
A: TARGET!!!! Who knew Target had such great clothing for moms!!! I haven’t shopped for cloths for me there in years! But there are some awesome finds! The Blue Ruffled top was a tank top and only $20 and the Gray Sweater thing was also $20 and comes in a ton of other colors. It’s long and drapie in the front. My husband hates it! He said he won’t go out in public with me if I wear it! WHATEVER MIKE! Mr. Fashion Expert himself!The turquoise ring is also from Target!
Q: Does your little girl really sleep in a headband?
A: Funny but yes! That wasn’t just comical banter! Blue sleeps in a headband as often as she can. That morning I had packed up every headband in the house and she about had a nervous breakdown without one. So I dug out of my bag the ugliest one to put her at ease! Seriously folks!!!She has a borderline unhealthy relationship with accessories! Should I be worried? It’s sort of her thing…Skirt with pants! Two shirts and a sweater and a headband to round out the look! Melts my hear I tell ya! She’s got “Punky Power!!!”
