This week's Friday's Featured Etsy Artist is another Spotted Box team member--Social Butterflies! My daughter has one of her clips and loves it. I love it because it actually stays in her fine hair and looks cute in the process. Want to try some of these clips for your own hair or your child's hair? She's currently running a sale--buy 4 items and get 1 free!! AND.....she's offering a giveaway for my blog readers! More details on the giveaway coming soon!
