Back to School Giveaway #1 - Twisted Ribbons

In just about 2 weeks, both of my kids will be going to school - my daughter is going to kindergarten and my son is going to pre-school! Shopping for back to school is becoming a bigger task now with both of them in school and is so much fun! To give our Etsymom a chance to share their back to school experience with you all, some of our Etsymoms will be hosting giveaways to make back to school even more fun!

This week's giveaway is hosted by Twisted Ribbon - a super cute Etsy shop filled with beautiful hair accessories - barrettes, hair bows, hair flower & more - for all ages! The shop owner, Amber, also has a daughter starting kindergarten this year. Read the feature below to see what she likes to share with us on her back to school experience...
