I've been having a lot of fun lately playing with my obscene collection of vintage buttons and I just wanted to show you guys what I've come up with! Getting these photographed and put on etsy was one of my new years resolutions and I'm pleased with the results! Lemme know what you think
Thanks for looking and I'd really appreciate some feedback!
Rather a depressing change; I sorta feel lost without my highly chromatic hair. Since last October I've rotated through the colors of green, turqoise, blue, purple, and then finally pink, so it's been a while since I've had any brown. I look a bit like a 12 year old girl, honestly.
I was thinking of getting a short pixie/peter pan cut when I go back to college in the fall, would that suit me at all? The intention is that it'll be just long enough to put into a faux hawk so that I can dye it green and rock it out as the joker on Halloween.
I was bored with my hair, so I attacked it with an assortment of leftover dyes. I think it's Virgin Rose, Fishbowl, Manic Panic Ultraviolet, and a bit of some other Manic Panic pink dye. Manic Panic has never worked well for me, but the SFX dyes I had wouldn't be nearly enough.
I loovvveee your hair, grrrromit, especially with the orange in the last picture. I confess, I'd hack my hair off exactly like that in a heartbeat if I were all... waif-y like you, haha. Anti-waifs don't look so great in that cut, I think (or maybe it's just me).
In other news, I'm dyeing my hair right now! Nothing drastic, I'm just dyeing my faded fishbowl streak purple and going over my red-brown hair with brown. I'll post pictures later.
I've only been knitting for under a year and I've only completed one sweater... top-down raglan, at that, no seaming involved. But... I can't help it! Every sweater pattern I see has something wrong with it and I have way too many ideas for things that would be fun to knit. I've seen books on the subject of designing sweaters, but I have no idea of what would be best... something clearly written, though, obviously.
An idea...a top-down raglan with yo increases and maybe shaping somehow hidden into the yo curviness on the sides? I don't know if that's possible (hence the book!) How fun would this be over a coordinating color tank top?
Hee, I just my hair the other day turqoise and green. You can't really see the turquoise so well in the picture, but it just looks like blue fading into green. There's a couple old, faded pink streaks farther back.
So, yeah, enjoy the picture of me making a dorkish face.
Wee, I just dyed my hair a few days ago. I used special effects virgin rose and left it in for like an hour (I got distracted! ) It was crazy bright the first couple days and I love it, but just one warning... the dye did not stay in my un-bleached hair AT ALL. It just washed out and came off on the collars of my shirts.
Before today my hair was shoulder length and a bit blah. Everybody I asked before I got it cut told me it'd look bad, and now a few people have already told I was stupid to get it cut! Jeeze, people are so negative. I like it, stop raining on my parade!
It's been 2 years since I had my hair cut for Locks of Love. I've been growing it out to donate again... and now Sabrina (7) and Abigail (5) are getting their's cut too! We have it all set up to get our hair cut on Feb 19th, at my co-leader's grandma's salon (we've invited all the Girl Scouts in our city to participate in the cut-a-thon)... Anyways, I want some ideas for my new hair cut.
