Default Re: AH where do i start?

First, congrats on tackling this fun hobby!

I actually WAY prefer snap clips over alligator clips - for babies I like the 1 1/4" and for toddlers on up I like the 2". You can get them on, the ribbon retreat, and lots of other sites. The ribbon retreat is great for grosgrain ribbon of all widths. Once you master a bow, head for the double ruffle ribbon. It's more expensive than grosgrain but it's soooo adorable! Another big seller, especially for 3 month olds are nylon headbands. You can embellish them with just about anything but a nice big bow in 1 1/2" wide grosgrain is probably the easiest and always looks super cute.

Grab a decent glue gun but you don't need anything fancy. Be prepared to make a lot of mistakes at first but keep on trucking and you'll be a pro in no time!
