Painting!! I have a super fun project I'm working on, and I'm definitely going to share it with you all once it gets a little closer to being completed. :D
It snowed. Again.
04. Good Together
Packing for the weekend, and I couldn't decide which necklace/earrings to bring.
05. Not Mine
(I do however own a similar Russian doll.)
06. A Taste Of Spring
...Minnesota Spring, anyways.
I did see some green grass today while we were collecting maple sap, so maybe Spring isn't as far off as it feels. (I also walked through snow so deep it went down my mud boots, but that's irrelevant. ;P )
I picked this skirt up at a thrift store a year or two ago, because it was free, and hey- who doesn't love aqua + polka dots?
I ended up not wearing it very much after I got it, however; it's 100% polyester, so... it was kinda like wearing a shiny sheet, and in general, I prefer my skirts either knee length or floor length, and this one fell awkwardly in between.
So I decided... I'll turn it into a high-low skirt!
Actually, I decided that ages ago, but I've only just been brave enough to actually cut it up, and now that's it's high-low I don't mind it being synthetic material quite so much. :D
What I'm wearing:
Sweater ~Pout -Handmedown? (I actually have no idea where I got this sweater...)
So... this time I have a legitimate reason for dropping off the face of the earth.
My laptop DIED.
It had been working totally fine, and then one day I went to turn it on, and nothing happened. Black screen of death.
Well then, aren't you glad you have an iPod? you may be thinking.
The. Very. Next. Week.
My iPod home button = Broken.
(I really am careful with my electronics, truly!)
So, I sent my iPod in (thankfully the warranty was still good) and they sent me a replacement, and currently I'm using an old spare laptop that met with A Tragedy, which caused the screen to go wonky- but hey, it works! and the computer shop in town was able to pull all my pictures, writing, etc off my laptop, so that's good.
Other than that... I've been busy lately, but mostly with boring stuff- unless you want to hear about the various ways we've been preserving our bountiful harvest of tomatoes and other veggies.
But mostly tomatoes.
Also, today it's been one year since I chopped off 30" of my hair.
I'm a christian homeschool graduate, living among the jack-pine savages of Northern Minnesota. When I was little, I had messy hair. Like, really messy. My Dad's pet name for me was 'Haystack'. This blog is for sharing my love of fixing/creating hairstyles, and whatever other random things I want to post. :)
