The Lovely Blogger List

I came across this post from Danni's blog and thought, What a great way for me to introduce Skylar's Candy Clips to people and to other bloggers. So here I am, creating this little post about myself, Skylar's Candy Clips and how it all got started. If you want to join the list, follow Rachel's instructions here.


My name is Sherryl Mascarinas and I create and design children's hair accessories in CT. I love all things handmade and am a total Etsy addict. I married my childhood sweetheart and am a mom to three wonderful children - two girls and a boy. Skylar's Candy Clips got started when my daughter Skylar was less than a year old. I wanted to be creative and make her some really unique hair clips. My creative addiction turned into an obsession and when I discovered Etsy back in 2008, I decided that Skylar's Candy Clips should be available to little girls everywhere!

Those of you who are familiar with my Etsy shop should know that I love funky, whimsical colors. I find inspiration on different color combos that I see in magazines, catalogs, and even in my own neighborhood. Here are some of my most popular pieces:

Pink Hydrangeas Hair Clips
{available in other colors}

Happy Flower Headbands
{available in other colors}

Pastel Daisies Headband
{shown on stretchy cotton headband for infants but also
available for big girls}

You can find Skylar's Candy Clips here:

Oh Spring - what took you so long?

This beautiful pot of flowers was a gift from my friend Tina.

Springtime means...

beautiful tulips...

celebrating Wendy the wonderdog's (8th!) birthday...

(cheers to Wendy!)

riding your bike on two wheels...

celebrating Easter eating popsicles with friends...

and hunting for eggs...

and chugging along as Thomas the Tank Engine...

and welcoming a Little Chirpy Bird to the shop.

I love spring.

{By the way, if you like Little Chirpy Bird, come back tomorrow for a chance to win him.}
