I twisted my hair but released them while my hair was very damp. In fact, I don't think that my hair completely dried until around noon.
Another twist set that wasn't allowed to dry. I prefer these b/c my hair looks fuller.
And again...get the picture?
But THIS (twists allowed to actually dry...go figure) will get more compliments than...
Lately, I haven't had the desire to wear twists for any longer than half a day it seems, but I found an updo/compromise that I like.
He was so excited the whole day.
Baptized by his grandfather, a deacon of the church. I would like to get this photo touched up and sketched (by an artist greater than I). I think that this would make a pretty cool picture to put up in his room.
Right before taking his first communion,
This was the same man that christened him 8 years ago.
Taking the Lord's supper.
Accepting his certificate.
He smelled this cake in the house the night before.
Kids grow up so fast...his christening (May 19th, 2002).
Pardon my fo'head...
And this was at the end of the second (without re-wetting...and with my hair pinned back in the front).
Pros - not a terrible amount of shrinkage, a good deal of movement, a nice sheen, great defintion, firm hold, humidity-friendly, and compliments.
Cons - PRICE (although I've had this jar since this time last year), stickiness (I believe that this is what I disliked the first time, but the stickiness subsides after a while).
When I went to Chica.go, I saw a poster that I'd seen back home before in my girlfriend's kitchen. I loved the colors and just had to have it. I asked if it were ok to copy her style, but was ready to proceed no matter the answer, lol.
I ordered it in print size and then got a frame for it from Tar.get. I just ordered another print by the same artist and plan to put it below this one. It complements the MANY colors in my kitchen nicely. I still need to figure out what I'm going to do about a backsplash, since the tile company would not break up boxes for the design that I wanted...so back to the drawing board with that one.
Originally, I had pictures of J and his PawPaw on that wall in the kitchen, but they work much better in his bedroom.
Speaking of quirky...
Remember when J and I won this? I believe S23 asked where I was going to put it. Well, here's the verdict. I broke out J's crayons and colored it. I actually sat at my desk like a 5 year old, carefully scrutinizing the lines, a few months ago. THEN, it was ok to put it in the hallway.
My next therapeutic purchase will probably be more wall quotes.
I'll try not to overdo it, but I like how they can transform a boring sliver of a wall.
This one is above my bed. It reads, "Mothers of little boys work from son up til son down."
So adding little accents has been both scratching my artistic itch while J is back home and relieving me of my frustrations. I keep trying to talk myself into another painting project but I must not be THAT emotional. Then again, after having a day like I had today, I should be in the mood to paint 2 rooms, re-tile both bathrooms, do some yardwork, and knock down and rebuild my shed.
