"Made With Love" Event: CTH Designs Review and Giveaway Ends 4/3

~This post is part of the handmade "Made With Love" event. All giveaways run from March 25th-April 3rd. View all 17 sponsors for this event HERE~  


About the Designer...
My Name is Maria the blogger behind Close To Home. I live in VA with my 3 children, husband and cat. I am a SAHM with some outside interests including subbing at my son’s preschool and volunteering at the elementary school. One of my side projects is making headbands, Key Fobs, Pony O’s for school spirit wear or simply to adorn your outfits. I was making the headbands for my daughter when one of her teachers recommended calling the school’s bookstore. That started the ball rolling as to getting local schools and businesses to order them. Most of my left over energy is focused on the blog where I have recipes, crafts, entertaining and gardening tips. I choose inexpensive activities that still are special but not very costly. I have been blogging since 2009.


Review...
Hair accessories are a must-have for every little girl. Add some pizazz to her ensemble with headbands and more from CTH Designs! With tons of great designs to choose from, you will want more than one!


I received the purple zig zag woven headband to review! The design is really fun and the ends are well hidden and finished. The headband under the ribbon is plastic and somewhat flexible. I usually find headbands to fit really funny on my head and they usually hurt too! This was not the case at all with this one! I found it to be quite comfortable and it didn't slide around while doing normal chores around the house. It stayed put like a great headband should! I gave the headband to my little sister to test out (she's 7) and it fit her head well too. I'll be sending it back her way soon so she can wear it with all her cute coordinating clothes. Such a cute accessory!

My youngest sister modeling the headband for me! She has wild wavy hair sometimes :)

Maria has various headband designs to choose from and also makes Key Fobs, Pony O’s. I think she should experiment with bow-making too. If you're in charge of a cheerleading squad or sports team, I'm sure Maria would love to talk to you and get your group all dolled up!
