Change of Pace

After nearly a year, I decided to change my hairstyle again. I have very thick hair and every time I even look down, it flops over my face making look like a cross between a sheepdog and Cousin It. I learned a valuable lesson...well, actually 2 lessons. First, check your stylist's mood. Mine informed me that she had a few customers that really frustrated her. Which I immediately felt when she began pulling the comb through my hair with no regard for my ears.

The second lesson: When dealing with a fibromyalgia flare, don't go get your hair done. Between her mood and the general routine that goes with a cut and color such as vigorous scrubbing, the wringing of wet hair, burning hair dye and the combing of wet hair, I felt as if I was simultaneously being snatched bald and beaten with a stick! Thankfully a curling iron and a little hair product helped smooth the evidence of her irritation with her day so I think I'll live. Here's what it looks like now...

Along the lines of business speak: I sold two items since yesterday! One of my faves, the Candy Apple bracelet is off to a new home. It's such a great feeling when someone likes one of my pieces so much they want to give it a new home. The other adopted piece is the one in my last post below - "Old Time". Wow, that one moved fast!

And now without further delay, I'd like to introduce the latest member of our family, Buster!

I'd been wanting a kitty for a long time and Buster was a surprise by my husband on our anniversary. He's very cute and more than a little spoiled already. He sleeps with me at night and climbs in my lap for naps during the day. He keeps us laughing with his antics of barreling up the stairs, slithering down them head first and undying curiosity. Definitely a welcome addition! Thanks, honey!

Love your hair and the kitty!
I really miss my two cats. They died within 6 mos. of each other (over 5 years ago) and we haven't wanted to get another one yet...still grieving for them, I guess. Plus, we have been doing some traveling since I retired last June. Maybe in a few years when we settle down a little more! I really miss them.

Crafting has always been a passion for me. I have yet to stick with any particular medium, as I love to switch it out and try new things. This blog is sort of a testament to that fact. Hope you enjoy...
