“Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair...”

hey guys!

I've been a bit side-tracked this week, so didn't get much of a chance to blog. Thank you all for your encouraging responses to my leather bag! I had no idea it would turn out the way it did. And honestly, it wasn't as challenging as I thought. Perhaps because I've got this amazing sewing machine that will practically sew through anything. I've also done a bit of leather work while making shoes, so I suppose that has given me a bit of experience on leather. I was also surprised at how much ::fun:: I had making the bag. Sometimes certain projects will bore me to tears. But I really didn't get bored once on this one. Yesterday I ordered some leather and will be making a few more bags and will post them for sale for anyone who is interested. I'm not sure yet how I want to sell them, if on my site or in another venue. I need to think about that a little more. If you are interested, feel free to drop me a line (gracefullady@gmail.com) and I'll let you know when I have some available.

I know everyone has been posting a bunch about Valentine's Day. I usually don't get into it much. I don't really see any reason to get depressed over it, but it is kind of a silly holiday in my book. Although I do rather like all the sweets and pretty cards that celebrate the day. But otherwise, it's just 'another day.' This year, though, I was invited to my friend's birthday party. Imagine having a birthday on the 14th! I don't think I'd like it, but she says she's never had a bad Valentine's Day. We had fun dancing to music by Chromeo, Justice, M.I.A. (I do love good dance music) and eating lots of red velvet cake. While at the party, a friend I've met at the coffee shop mentioned how she has never seen my hair down. So yesterday I tried wearing it down for the first time in months. You see, I am trying to grow the stuff out and well, every time I try I just want to chop it off again. Because there are SO MANY cute short hairstyles (I especially love this one) I keep seeing and once you cut it really short, it's amazingly hard to grow it back. Believe me, I've been trying for two years. But this year I am determined. So after seeing how horrible my hair looked down (due to not having a trim in months) I decided to take the problem and deal with it myself...

trim

I probably didn't take off more than an inch all around. I also trimmed my bangs a bit, because when I cut them first I made them look really choppy (fashion statement, yo!). I'm trying to let them grow now, so I'm sweeping them to the side. I realize this talk of hair is probably extremely boring to most of you, but I figure if I post about it then maybe it will encourage me to continue to let it grow. So yeah, enough of that. Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. Think I'm gonna go sew. yeah.
