First off, I'd like to post an updated picture of my new do. I, as usual, LOVED my new haircut straight out of the chair. Then, got it wind-blown, slept on it, and worked an early shift at work-all the while running my hands through my hair in exasperation (I had to completely re-merchandise my cheese was causing me all kinds of grief). I was also not used to having bangs, and so continued to brush them from my brow...also out of stress.
Just a few hours into my shift, I caught a glimpse of my reflection. Oh my...what a mess!! I looked as if I was wearing a hair helmet!! It was awful and I couldn't wait to leave the eyes of the public and crawl under my cozy covers!
But I had a birthday party to attend. I took a 2 mile run (nearly 2 miles), took a shower, and then took a nap. I woke up to a great little hair do!! The one I wanted, in fact! I guess I lucked out, and even this cut will put up with my wash-and-wear ways! Thank goodness!!
I got to wear my cute headband, too.
Now, to the real business at new favorite love: Quilling!
I got my package yesterday (of course, b/c I didn't have any time to open it until after work today!!). My new quilling tools.
I have a really cool little practice piece in the works, but as my week has been going, my camera battery is currently charging since it crapped out as I was about to shoot what I have so far.
I managed a shot early on, in the pre-adhesion stages:
It's so much cooler than this now, I can't wait to shoot it and post it tomorrow!!
I am in love with this craft and can't believe I hadn't been doing it already!! And it's a fairly portable craft! Now that I've been practicing a bit, I think I will start turning my sketches into 3D pieces.
Stay tuned...I can't wait to get stuff ready for the shop!
