I did a sew in weave last night. The cost 10. Sewing in hair is not as easy as you tube makes it look. I did not do a closure. I tried and it did not look right. I really could be so much better bit know if I keep trying it will. And at 10 for 2 bags I won't give up
I got a cream jacket on sat on sunday I was making scarves to match. I made the fluffy scarf from the lion brand site the pattern calls for t&q but I used three strands of worsted. Two cream and one purple varigated. Did all that and it looks better with my purple pea coat and not my cream jacket. But not to worry my enterlac scarf looks better with the cream coat than the pea coat. Go figure.
These are the two I made for my co workers aunt. So now I can get back to my wrap. No. I was teaching my supervisor how to crochet and she was determined to make a hat without asking for help. It did not go so well and now I am making another cadet hat. At least it is not for me. I still need to make leons dontae hat I am going to finish my wrap. Same thing happened last year christmas crafting for others takes up most of december then I need a break then I get back on it. Now that I think about a red cadet or cabled hat to go with my cream christmas jacket would be great. Ever since I got that coat I have been craving red accessories for it.
She loved her bag. The thing is she wanted a bag I made a long time ago. I need to see if she still wants it. If she knew that bag is not made as well as the gold bag. Anyway just glad she wanted a bag
What card will I make this year? Last year I took so long deciding, my Christmas cards turned into Happy New Year’s cards.
Not this year. I am going to use Shutterfly for my Christmas cards. It is a great place for cards, invitations and gifts. All I have to do is take a picture. The plan is to dress up, go to the mall and use their decorations. That is what I did for Mekhi’s first Christmas.
Then pick from Shutterfly’s great collection.I can do the same thing for invitations. My thought for Mekhi’s third birthday party invitations is to use three pictures from ages one to three and go from there. Select a cute invite already put together and excellently arranged and use the same card for thank you cards use photo cards and a picture from the birthday party and change the wording. But what can you do about gift ideas? I am doing photo calendars for all of grandparents
and natural hair journals for my girls that took the plunge and went natural. Decorate the journals with an inspirational quote like, “There is no greater beauty than the real you.”
I will have cards and gifts done with time to spare! When I decided to use Shutterfly I did not know how handy they were. Did you know they will mail it for you? Get out of town! So if you are in a bind for christmas photo cards try shutterfly. Now it is onto picture taking.
