New Do

So if you've happened to see me you'd know that I have EXTREMELY long hair. Like, I use a baseball sized palm of shampoo to wash it long. And it has been long for a long time.

But, I have decided that no more!

This was my hair this morning:This is my hair now:
That's 12 inches I'm holding in my hand. It will be on it's way to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths program for the American Cancer Society in the morning.

I really really like it. :-) It was a wonderful change.

Christmas Gifts

If forgot to post all the crafties I made for Christmas presents this year. This is what I did for my friend Khyra:

This is one of those photo message boards made out of a canvas, some quilt batting, some fabric, ribbon, and brads.

I scrapbook a good deal, and have a Cricut I typically only use for that purpose. But after getting the In the Kitchen cartridge, and after being asked for my recipes for the 400th time, I decided to bust out the ole Cricut and make her a really nice cookbook that she can add on to later. I really enjoyed putting it together.

The Garlic Bread recipe came from an Emeril Lagasse cookbook my brother had, and requires a really tasty spice mix to make called Baby Bam. So I mixed her up some of that too and put it in an old garlic jar. I decoupaged the lid with some paper scraps to make it pretty:

^_^ She really enjoyed it. And now for her birthday all I have to do is make a few more pages and we're good to go!
