Fit for a Princess

A few months ago I started making party hats. I made one for Caroline's birthday and liked it so much that I decided to make more. I love birthdays, parties, and dressing up, so what better way to celebrate than with a party hat, birthday or not! Here I am on my birthday wearing one of my party hats. My mom knows I've been into party hats lately so when she came across this 2005 article in Country Living on Ashley Carter and her Goldbug studio, she mailed the copies to me (thanks, mom!). I think I felt a sprinkling of faerie dust come over me as I flipped through the pages! Wow, her party hats, crowns, faeries and magical creatures are something to behold. Each work of art is so intricately designed and arranged. You won't find a less is more attitude here--more is more at the Goldbug Studio. Ashley says that her festive hats "stress the need for a celebration of yourself 365 days a year." You can see more of her work and purchase her designs online at Earth Angel Toys.
