Seventeen inches! Seventeen inches of my hair got cut off on Thursday and will be donated to Locks for Love. Last time I had my hair short was in 2004 and it was my first quarter at Cal State University of San Bernardino. I’m still trying to get use to it since it’s a drastic change but it’s perfect for this hot weather. My fireman likes my new do. Yesterday as he left for work he told me that I better get going, as I lay in bed, because his wife will be home soon. That man of mine cracks me up.

Here’s another fun hair tutorial, that I call the shy pigtails. I love this look and it’s so easy to do. It makes my hair look short. Once again, the video is not the best quality since I recorded it on my Kodak EasyShare C875 camera. It’s a very old camera. I think it's time for me to start saving my pennies and get a new one. For now, it does the job.
In the video, my shy pigtails are closer to my head because I made the knot as close to my head as possible. To achieve the look like in the picture above, knot your pigtails a little lower.

Currently, another bird flew the coup. Stacey had been employed at the theater since it opened. Stacey loves to eat healthy and 99% of the time brought a salad to eat at work. For a while, she even sold organic salads to the staff. Stacey knew my ritual of making special cards and she even told a manager she had a feeling she was going to get a salad card. And, that’s exactly what she received – Stacey’s 100% Organic Salad To Go card.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to complete the hoop by the wedding date. I wanted it to be displayed at the wedding reception but I didn’t master the stem stitch until I got to family. I seamed ripped the other words and re-stitched them. I knew this gift would be greatly cherished. I wanted it to look professionally made and stitched with love.
I gave Becky her custom hoop on Sunday and she loved it! It almost made her cry.
