No Slippy Hair Clippy Review & $25 Giveaway!!


Today I am reviewing a wonderful company that offers so many creative hair clips for babies to toddlers to girls to teens to women!  They kindly sent me a few items to review...

The clips are bright, cute, and well made.  What is especially notable about them is that when you remove them from your hair, it DOESN'T hurt or tangle your hair!! 

 No Slippy Hair Clippys are very gentle which is especially wonderful for small children.  I gave the little lion clip to a mom for her girls, and she noted that she thought it wouldn't stay in her youngest daughter's hair, but it did!  No Slippy Hair Clippy is true to its name!   Little girls' hair can be very thin, therefore making it hard to fix sometimes, but No Slippy Hair Clippy makes it that much easier.  The clips are great as a little embellishment for a particular hairstyle or can be the "main focus" for a hairdo.  Here's a few photos of my hair up in a No Slippy Hair Clippy:

  "No Slippy Hair Clippy® is well known for creating the non-slip hair accessories® category,

and is still the finest product of its kind anywhere!

Our first "no-slip hair clip" was invented out of sheer frustration in 2000. It took a mom with an almost-bald baby girl to invent a hair clip that would stay securely in place and look cute. For countless generations, baby girls have often been mistaken for boys, and until No Slippy Hair Clippy® opened its doors in 2001, you couldn’t find a hair accessory created specifically to stay in baby-fine hair. Thanks to us, your daughter’s generation no longer has to worry about being mistaken for a BOY!

Our hair clips are quite unique, with a patent pending. Originally designed with a magnet to enhance the hold, we now use a more expensive Plush Swiss Velvet wrapped completely around the metal clip, to provide an identical snug, secure grip. It’s now lighter weight, and so soft she won’t even know it’s there! Our clips won’t hurt if she pulls them out, either, and because we use the highest quality clips available, they don’t bend easily, like others do. Truly the world’s finest non-slip clip®!

Over time, we have continued to grow and to add new products, and we now design hair accessories for girls, teens and women, as well as babies. We offer three different sizes and types of clips; a Mini, a Standard Pinch, and a French Clip for girls of all ages with lots of hair. All are non-slip clips®, and they also won't slide in fine hair of any length. We also offer no-slip headbands, including an organic cotton head wrap, the first of its kind!

No Slippy Hair Clippy® has been nominated every year since 2005 by retailers across the US for the prestigious "Earnie" award for design excellence, and is also a celebrity favorite, photographed often in Hollywood and around the world on celebrities and their children alike.

And now (because we can't help setting trends), a new line of Clipettes™ using our tried and true manufacturing methods with different no-slip materials, is making its debut as a value-based division of No Slippy Hair Clippy®."

Scripture Designs Review AND Giveaway!!!

I love horses- they are so beautiful, majestic, and just one example of God's handiwork.  So it was fantastic when Scripture Designs agreed to send me the Horse Sketched notecards to review!!

There are six different cards that come in this pack; all of them have the Bible verse, 2 Corinthians 12:9, on the back.
All of the cards included in the pack [below]:





   
I really enjoy the notecards Scripture Designs makes.  They offer a variety of cards for different occasions (such as Christmas, Thank You notes, Sympathy,etc.) that are packed full of creativity.  The notecards are very natural looking, yet gorgeous.  These don't just have to be for greeting cards, either!  They can be used for writing letters, too- very versatile!  I plan on sending my friend a birthday card using card 2 (above) whose bday is in two weeks!  I know she'll be delighted because she owns her own horse!  It is kind of difficult for me to choose a favorite amongst this set, but I especially like cards 3-6.  Cheer someone up with a Scripture Designs card!

Read about the talented artist who drew these cards below...

"About the Artist: Sarah Stover grew up in the Connecticut countryside, enjoying the wild flora and fauna which surrounded her home. From an early age flowers held a very special place in Sarah’s heart, which was evidenced by the many flower arrangements she made for the family. This love of beauty was fanned like a tiny spark in her young heart and over the years grew into a blazing desire for more and more complex forms of design with color combinations. Overflowing into numerous other areas of her life, this artistic flare began to manifest itself in all her handwork interests, including knitting, quilting and embroidery. The flower gardens also received her attention as she sought to incorporate into them pleasing design elements. It wasn’t long before she took up pencil sketching and decorative painting, which at first were just for her own pleasure. However, she soon found a broader outlet when she joined her siblings in starting a small business producing Scripture cards and prints. Photography was another step in Sarah’s artistry and she reveled in the challenge of designing still-life shots for her new card projects. Through this avenue she was able to express, not only her passion for art and color, but also her love for the Lord, incorporating Scripture into her designs."

And with Christmas coming up in a few months, how about choosing one of Scripture Designs' prints to give as a gift?

Other awesome cards from Scripture Designs...
I LOVE that one:)
Scripture Designs is most graciously offering one of my readers their own pack of one of the sketched notecards!
