    If you're an Etsy regular, you probably have a few creative crushes saved in your Favorites section — we definitely do. And one of those is the District's very own Nina O'Neil, the creative wiz behind Ciao Nina, a too-cute-for-words line of handmade felt fascinators, headbands, hair pins, and more.

    We got the chance to peek into Nina's H Street workspace recently, and were utterly charmed by her array of pretty toppers, wildly colorful fabric, and inspirational treasures. Follow along as we get the scoop on her creative process, her secret to work-life balance, and her sources of artistic inspiration— and, of course, find out what it felt like to see her design show up on none other than Blair Waldorf.
