Joyful Blooms {review + giveaway}


I am so excited to bring you a perfect little shop, Joyful Blooms!







Joyful Blooms is a new etsy shop addition, but it packs a whole lot of goodies! In the shop you'll find tons of great hair accessories for the little (or adult) girl in your life!



Joy, the wonderful owner of Joyful Blooms, is an absolute delight. The girl is very talented in her crafty ways, but when I asked her about her inspiration, I was the one who got inspired. Joy. mom of an adorable toddler boy, started making these girly clips because she and her husband are in the process of adopting their second baby, a girl, from China. Joy knew her little one needed to have some cute hair accessories! I learned that the process is incredibly long, but very much worth it. This blessed baby girl is going to have some super cute clips too!




I also have a little confession to make: I actually wore the clip. Maybe more than once. Okay, a lot. It's so gorgeous and versatile that it totally works for ladies of all ages! The quality is remarkable too! These are very much toddler proof, and they are so sturdy and maintain their shape! The clip is hidden behind the bloom, and is lined to help it stay in place. She also just recently started making toddler blooms, that are a little bit smaller than her original ones, but just as cute!


Let me make this even better: Joyful Blooms offers free shipping to the US... all the time! No excuses to not run over and pick out some super adorable clips for little girls, and grown ones too!


AND, Joy is so sweet to offer one lucky reader of The Ivy Twines their very own choice of a clip from her shop! Yay!

  1. I absolutely adore the blue and brown fabric flower, so pretty.

    I know how difficult, long, and expensive adopting from China. I wish Joy a very short paper pregnancy!
