Mission Accomplished

The un-findable ponytail holders have been found!!!  Well, sort of.  The other day when I was babysitting, Elissa insisted on putting my hair in a ponytail (She's three).  So she went and got the huge box of ponytail holders and a brush.  While she was brushing my hair I looked through the big box to see what cute little ponytail holders they had.  There were a ton of them!!!  I searched through all kinds of cute little clips and headbands and ponytail holders while she brushed my hair.  It was very relaxing...until she tried to put it in a ponytail.  Then it was painful!!!

Then I saw them.  They had ponytail holders like the ones I saw at Justice for Girls!  So I decided I would compromise and use those for my ponytail holder project since I was giving them to the girls anyway.  They aren't exactly what I was looking for but they're pretty close.

I went to the store to get them today and had a mini panic attack when I didn't see them where they were the last time I was there.  I wandered around praying that they would be somewhere else.  I was so sad when I couldn't find and started to leave without my ponytail holders.  Then on my way out I saw them hanging on one of the clothes racks.  There were only two sets left.  Exactly the number I needed!  YAY!!!

They don't have the variety of colors I was hoping for but I'll make it work.

I ended up paying more than I wanted to but that's okay.  Two packs of these cost almost as much as the six packs from Amazon but it was worth it because I know for sure that these will work and I won't have a ton of extras.  So, I'm calling it a win.  :-)

I have a few projects in the works that are time sensitive right now so these will probably be a project I work on some time in May.

I'm still on the hunt for the Goody Pony-O's for future projects so I would appreciate it if everyone would continue to look around when you are in stores that sell hair accessories.  Let me know if you find them!  :o)
