last day off before work

I hate wednesdays. They're like the sundays of everyone who has a normal work week. Sure, it is my day off and I get to relax more but I can't. Knowing about working tomorrow and the stress of getting everything else done that I wanted to is preventing any sort of relaxation I desire. Such is the human condition in all its failed glory.
Thursday means it is 'monday' and of course everyone hates monday. It even sounds like a fucking downer. Maybe before work I'll get up extra early to catch up on my reading and drink obscene amounts of coffee. Then I'll buy a slurpee for the drive. Last week I did that and my thursday was such much better. There is something about the sweet frozen magic of the slurpee that just brightens my day.

This past monday I gave myself blonde and red highlights. Unfortunately it all just kinda turned into this bright red and pinkish mess. Overall it doesn't look that bad but it wasn't what I had envisioned.




pOw!





I was starting to miss my formerly pink hair anyways. I had a feeling while mixing the color that the universe was gonna make my hair pink again. The only thing that doesn't sit well with me is that my husband prefers my hair blonde. Oh well, too fucking bad. If he wants be to look like a trashy slut (with my dark roots, blonde looks very very whorish) then he can buy me a wig.

My face has improved since I deleted out all the skin products that contain any kinda of silicone. My breakouts are fewer and less severe but I still get them. Though much more manageable I have a feeling that conditions could improve.

Just over the weekend I ordered a pretty lolita skirt. I hope I get it before this saturday, I really want to wear lolita to the wool and sheep festival. Speaking of lolita... I did get my dream dress for winter holiday however I do not have a decent petticoat. The only option I have of one is a fluffy shorter skirt that came from h&m. I would wear that one but I feel like it is too dressy for the fair. Plus casual lolita would be more comfy for me to chase my son around in.

Love!

last monday of april

Good morning!!

It has been a little while since I last posted. Mostly because I had to recover from a stomach virus that attacked me at the most inopportune time.
I was helping my dad do some last minute moving and cleaning of their old house when the sickness hit. So I ended up spending my afternoon, evening and next day feeling like complete crap. But I am better now, so that is all that matters.

And my mom liked her kusudama ball. Yay!

Life is right is just exactly that, life. Nothing special really. Working, taking care of the baby, coffee, work, etc.
Unfortunately it really hasn't allowed ample time for some serious crafting time for my etsy shop. Poor shop has been empty for a couple of months now. So it looks like I am gonna have to ease up on the swap-botting for a while so I can focus more on the direction/progress of my handmade shop. Lately I've been thinking of expanding into bath bombs and lotions. Maybe even soap but I want to keep it simple for now. But first I must make new crochet items and jewelry!

I'm gonna color my hair today as well. I realized last night it looks super crappy. I hate having to do it so soon but oh well. It MUST be done!

Here's a quick before shot (what it looks like right now):









I know it doesn't look that bad but the base color on the ends is super faded. It looks bad.
I'm gonna add more blonde highlights and some red highlights. I know that doesn't exactly sound like it will cover the fading but it will at least blend it. I'll post again later with the results.

Weather here is rainy and sad. I hate rainy weather. I'll try to make the best of it though.

Love!!

kusudama!!




This lovely ball of paper and glitter took my FOREVER to make. In this instance, forever = 2 weeks of paper and pain!! Had I actually worked on it continuously, maybe just a couple of hours. However trying to work on anything with a 2 year old wanting to show me something every 5 seconds means that it will get done in super-slow human speed.


I hope my parents like their paper ball on a string.








Hello everyone! Just to let you know, I am not dead. Lately, I've been feeling a sort of 'blogger's block' and just not feeling like posting anything. Creativity has been at a high for once but just not in the blogging department. But that is about to change!! I plan on being more active with my blog and hopefully more active with an overall social life. I need to crawl out from under my rock I've been hiding under.
Until I say so, all my pictures will be kinda crappy (the ones I take). That is because the only camera I have at the moment is my sad little cell phone. I'm saving up for something better and hopefully I'll have it sooner than later. Either way, I won't be apologizing for my crappy pictures every time I post one. You're just gonna have to deal.

This week is gonna be a busy one for me. I'm helping my parents clean out the house they just moved out of and helping them get settled in their new one. That's right, I haven't said yet... they just bought a house! For the first time in years!! I'm really happy for them and really proud of them for making such a big financial commitment after all the crap they have been through. They really deserve a home to call their own.
I made a kusudama ball as a house-warming gift. It kinda looks a little silly since I'm covering it in glitter. My mom needs something bright and sparkly to hang in her home.

That is all for now, I have to get ready for my day-job. Booo!! Love!!!!
