I am so exhausted! I have been working myself to the bone the last few days. But let me back up a little.
So Friday I went to get my highlights. First he took me to the beauty supply place and let me pick out anything I wanted at his cost. It's probably a good thing that I had a raging headache or I might have spent much more than I did. It was one of those kid in a candy store moments! The best two things I came home with are Moroccan oil for my hair and a pumice peel for my face. I kid you not, I scrubbed off five years!
I must say it turned out a little lighter than I had anticipated. I am one step away from highlighted playboy bunny blond. I guess it's ok, I am not quite used to it. I am also a little concerned what it's going to look like when it grows out. Maybe by then it will be warm enough that I can be outside to let the sun do it's job. I know you guys wanted to see a pic, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get my webcam turned on, on my new computer. Maybe I need to download the software. So I had to take a pic of it myself. No easy feat! That's why for now all you get is a close up.
Saturday I made R take me to a specific restaurant because I have a new piece in mind I want to do a pattern for. You will have to wait and see! It won't be for a while yet though.
Sunday he went off to run errands while I worked and he came home feeling sick. I spent 16 hours working since he was sleeping.
Now about all this work...you know how sometimes you want to make a certain thing, but you don't because you get too caught up in unimportant details in your head about it? That's what happened to me. For ages I have wanted to make a smaller sized bear. But I didn't have the right size joints and I needed to make the bear so I could order some but I needed to order some so I could make the bear and....aaaauuuuggghhh!
Then along came a friend who wanted me to make a smaller size bear for a reason. It was just the push I needed, even though it still took me 3 1/2 months to do it. And here is the interesting part...I discovered I had bought some small joints somewhere along the line. A whole bag full, and they were exactly the right size for the pattern I made! Crazy kismet I tell ya!
So I have made two of them already, and have a third cut out. I also cut out a snowman for a special request I got. I am completely in love with this new size. They are just a shade under 7 inches. I wish I could show them to you, but one will be going to my friend and the other will be for the Blooming Bears show next month. I can't show you that bear, and I am not sure which one she wants yet. Once she chooses I can show you that one.
Actually she may have already chosen, I haven't gotten a single e-mail in two days. Not even spam. That happens occasionally with my server, so I am sure tomorrow I will wake up and have 9000 e-mails when they finally make their way through to me. In the mean time, I am going to go fall into bed before I collapse!
