I Opened an Etsy Shop!!!

Since I moved back home to Connecticut, I have been trying to become healthier and stay healthy. Even though it is pretty much a full time job I have become very restless, I need to be doing something, I have applied to a few jobs and I have been babysitting but still nothing major has come through. 

That was until the other day I went over to Michael's Craft store, I needed something for a small project I was working on. While I was there I found numerous baskets of plastic fruit and my mind was going crazy. Earlier on this week I had planned to go to Michael's to pick up items to make my own massive bows instead of buying them. However, once I saw the fruit I immediately thought of using those instead. I remember when I was in middle school I had a Swatch watch that had a white background and had fruit all over it, I loved it and I often have tried to find it again, but never had any luck. So in my head the idea to put fruit on hair accessories was genius, however has been done before especially with Carmen Miranda and Chiquita Banana. But I was thinking to make them less over the top, but still fun and quirky, but without looking like you have a bowl of fruit on your head. 

Nevertheless my trip to Michael's got my juices flowing and once I came home I went to work. Since my thoughts were flowing so rapidly and naturally I decided to open my own Etsy Shop!! It is called FruitHeads!! So go check it out!! Also three dollars from each purchase from now until May 18th will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, in order to fundraise for our Great Strides Team

This was the watch I once owned and Loved
