A fellow artist who ROCKS! Must share ...

As most of our readers know, we are longhairs. We love long hair and we love to make things to hold long hair up. For years, i had no idea there were ways to keep my hair long and have something that would hold it. The stores have clips for "long thick hair" HA! my hair would spit them out immediately, broken in pieces. So i would cut it,sadly....well, after one such cut i found a place for long hairs and they talked about hair forks of wood..YES! finally a way to hold it all up, and keep my hair! so we made me a few forks and realized, there aren't many people doing we shopped around to avoid any semblance of copying, and started with our patterns! well, along the way in this wonderful, dream fulfilling journey, we have met many artists who are also long hairs and have had the same experience and gone with thier take on the way to hold lots of heavy, long hair while using thier creative juices. Once such person is the owner and creator at Ravenscroft on etsy. SHe makes the most amazing Moons that are hair sticks, unless you want to have them as horns! This was one of the best boxes i ever got! it smelled divine when i opened it, and was beautifully colored tissue paper all around..

then, to my heart pounding joy, the beautiful purple box contained a cloud with stars and my moon!

OH, i was thrilled to my toes! and it looks fabulously fun in my hair, and everyones hair i have seen them in!

She does this as a hobby for the love of wood working and relaxation, not for business or full time like we do. her profile on Etsy says:
"Hello! Thank you for visiting my Etsy Shoppe!
I started working with wood after I got a Dremel for my birthday in April '08. I have very long hair (knee length now) and wanted to learn to make cool looking hair toys for myself.

I sort of became obsessed and started working with exotic hardwoods, as well as domestic, and feel like I have finally found my calling. So, to support my habit, I opened up shop to share my creations with other longhairs and longhair lovers. ♥ :D
I hope you will enjoy the items I make as much as I enjoy making them.

Thank you very much for visiting!

Her work is top notch, her communication is excellent and fun, and she is delightful to work with. SHe does not take custom orders so when you go over there, if you see something that makes your heart pound you best grab it fast!! and i recommend this shop highly!!!
Thanks so much, Ravenscroft, for being such a joy to me and blessing me with such a wonderful creation to help keep my locks beautifully in control!
You Rock!
