First off, I sold two of my bracelets in my etsy shop this weekend! I am SOOOOO thrilled! It's weird though.... could it have been a parent of one of my adoring fans? The person who bought them hails from South Jordan, UT.... aka, MY HOME TOWN like 1 mile from my mother's home! Is this a coincidence? Perhaps... but I doubt it. Hopefully I will soon find out if I know this person.
The bad news, which is also good news... I've been making some scrap fabric earrings that look AMAZING, until you put them on. Actually, my friend here just had a birthday, so in brainstorming of something I could make for her, I came up with this idea-- little pillow earrings... but I didn't have any batting... so I stuffed them with little peices of plastic bag. Like I said, they looked great until I tried them on. :( But then, I added a little something-- and voila! Gorgeous! Unfortunately, I gave them to her without taking a picture, but here are some others I've been practicing on... though they are still missing the item which makes them sing. I need to get more of it at the store... but still... you get the idea. Once finished I'll put them in my shop.
Now for the ugly news. I got my hair done this weekend. I was SOOOOO excited, had waited forever, saved my pennies- but alas. My cut is EXACTLY like Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music. That's a great movie- classic even, and Julie has THE most gorgeous voice in the world, and is a superb actress... but her hair in that movie is NOT my favorite. Not even close.
Also... I'd wanted to go extremely blond again... but ... sigh. Maybe it just wasn't meant to be....
Uh-uh ladies! I am the master of my own fate. I'm not giving up so easy. This next Saturday is the day-- the color at least, I can do something about. I'm just sad to loathe my hair in the meantime.
