Cutie Clips: Shop Feature, Review, + GIVEAWAY! {CLOSED}

It has been a while since I've done a shop feature. I love to introduce you to new shops, especially handmade goods which you can find all over Etsy. This feature is especially exciting because I know the owner and her family! I worked with Tricia, her sisters, and their mom at Northwest Christian University in years past.

Where are you located + are you from there originally? 
I was born and raised in Eugene, and I am still living in and loving the city of Eugene.

How did you come up with your shop name? 
My product name is based solely on the purpose of the product, what makes an outfit more cute…well a clip does, thus Cutie Clips.

How long have you had your shop? 
I started making clips when my niece was born with a full head of hair. I enjoyed making the clips so much that I recently started creating more product and decided to start selling to the public. 


Photobucket

What inspires you? 
I get inspired by seeing ribbon that I can’t pass up and need to use for something. Plus the clips look so cute in little girls’ hair and who can’t be inspired by that! 

What is your favorite item in your shop? 
I love all the items but I like the bows the best.


Photobucket

Do you have any other jobs or hobbies? 
I also love to scrapbook, play and spend time with my niece and nephew, and I am always looking for ways to get creative.

Share an interesting fact about yourself. 
I am the oldest of 4 girls in my family. 

What do you hope your future holds?
My hope for the future is that I will always show appreciation for what I have, find joy in all things big or small and create unforgettable memories every chance I get.

Shandell's Review







Tricia sent me a couple sets of her Cutie Clips and Cutie Clip Bows for me to review. I maybe might have tried one on Malakai at some point. there are no photos, so you don't have any proof (don't tell Ben). 







Photobucket

I think that she has a great eye for detail, coloring, and textures. All of the Cutie clips are absolutely precious and really well made. They have a textured lining on the inside so they grip on even the finest of hair. 


Photobucket

As you can see in the photos of her niece above, the bows and the clips are adorable and appropriate for babies and toddlers. I think even big girls and teenagers could appreciate some of the styles, especially the clips. 

Photobucket

Check out her shop, the prices are excellent and there are plenty of colors, patterns, + styles to suite your unique taste.

Giveaway!







Tricia is providing the same set I reviewed for one of you lucky readers to win!
