One of my subs requested a plum bridal look...

A Reddish Plum, Champagne and Brown Look

A Dark Plum Smokey Lid

oh yeah... and I set my hair... on those orange perm rods..
and I've been wrapping it (yes, wrapping it) every night...
It curls right back up, but it looks different everyday...

Oh and the hair in the previous pics (Thursday & Friday) is all from the same set...

I love curls!

Ugh... Two Weeks in Words And Pictures....(Lotsa Pictures)

Ok...

So I haven't been able to post since February 4th 2010...
Why? Because as most of you know...
The eastcoast got totally dumped on by about 30+ inches of snow...
I live in Baltimore Md...
So we kinda got a lot...


To my thigh...


finally the sun came out...


fricking 4+ft snow drifts...


y'all know about my love of ice...


mo' snow...
----------------------------------------------
I finally relaxed my hair after 17 weeks...


My mom trimmed about an inch off...
The ends were shot... gotta do better...
So back to grazing APL...

--------------------------------------------------
Boredom makes me creative...
So I drew and painted somethings...











So yeah...
-------------------------------------------------------

I also made some earrings from a few appliques I had doubles of...

I'll tell you really quick, how I made them...

Starting with this...


I ironed on some tissue paper...
Then trimmed it...


I used to puffy paint to give some shine to the other side...


Put the earring hook on there and Viola!

I made another pair as well... this time using a piece of lace...




I ironed on the appliques..
and trimmed them... I used a lighter to singe off the extra little hairs...


Using a safety pin to poke the holes for the earring hooks...




And Viola!

------------------------------------------
And ofcourse I did tuts...

Pink & Navy







featuring my newly created earrings...

Pink & Black










And Finally my new sig for my posts...
I'll be ending my posts with this from now on....
