The Longest Blog Post You'll Ever Read....

Ok, (takes big breath) let me get you all up to speed on what's happened in my life the past 60 days...you will slowly see a transformation of myself too.

You all knew in my last post I had to get rid of my pink hair for a job (which I no longer today have due to personal reasons) well here was the first stage, wasn't too happy with it, simply because I missed my pink hair badly, I cried for days!

Despite of my icky nappy hair, I carried on by decorating my home for spring and Easter...

Replaced my valentine's wreath for an Easter one...

Got some food pairing kawaii prints for the house, I woke up one day and realized my walls are so plain!



Started up a new collection of vintage my little ponies, oh how I loved them as a kid, and missed all of those colors, so bought some on various etsy sites to vamp up my studio!

Here my hair is back to my original color, but it was so so so nappy from all of that dying, my hair was more fried than fried chicken!

Makin barrettes, finding more cabochon venues outside of the USA (these came from Japan!)

Bows out the behind for myself, basically to give a distraction from my fried hair....




Thinking of pink......

Spring has sprung in my little town.....

Yes, can't forget about my cheesy pepto bismol pink lawn flamingos...

Finally found a purpose for my vintage fabric banners....

Became a bow maker!

Minxdenpartdeux is running smoothly! (151 sales!) but sadly made the decision to close down Minxden after a 3.5 year run, have 25 pillows left to sell, once the last pillow is gone, Minxden will be laid to rest!




And just 3 days ago, decided to rid of my frizzy hair and do a scary but brave thing....have the shortest hair of my life! All that you see here is virgin hair untouched by any dyes, and it is so soft and fuzzy again! I missed that. Thank God I can still wear bows though....whew! So sorry I have not been posting in the last 2 months, some of you may have wondered if I dropped off the face of the planet! I nearly did! Had to take care of a very sick husband, I got sick with severe bronchitis the first part of Feb. was laid out for almost a month...also severely sprained my right ankle from my previous job...dealt with replacing the entire clutch system in my hubby's truck, finding out I have severe lactose intolerance (eating no diary sucks!) mowing my massive backyard for the first time (took 2 hours!) enjoying the 80 degree weather we have been having in Nebraska! Grilling, going to my college hometown to partake in "fake patty's day" and get 3 sheets to the wind! (also had the best corned beef and cabbage ever while there), making jewelry for my shop nearly everyday, my life has been pretty interesting...hope to continue blogging as I have done before, the dust in my life has seem to settle down, I'm generally healthy, my husband in good health again, both cars are driveable. Life is good at the moment!

I totally LOVE your short hair!!! The best thing of all is that it's healthy and you can grow it or not. Personally, of all the pics I've seen of you, I love this the best. I bet it's east to take care of too.

I'm glad you and hubby are healthy again. Being sick is no fun at all...

Hi Georgia!
it's going to be a while before I add anymore dye in my hair...it needs to heal, besides I missed on how soft it felt! xoxo

your hair looks good now. i did the exact same thing in december. i had flame red hair and it was fried and i just chopped it off it was about as short if not shorter than yours. i definitely could not put a bobbi pin or bow in it. and now in march its finally getting long again. i have not dyed it, blow dryer it, curled it or anything. its been 10 years since i have seen my natural hair color. surprisingly its naturally black. i forgot about that. it has been pink 3 times, flame red countless times, blue, green, purple, and blonde. now i just wear wigs :)

wow! you have certainly been around the hair dying block more than I! It's always good to just get it chopped off, like fresh grass being mowed or something! I may dye my hair again in the future, but I think I will certainly keep it short for a while! I'm liking this! and hardly any maintenance! xoxo :)
