Wow, looks awesome!  I love how red it came out on your palms.

Sugar-magnolia, I know when I had henna on my nails it didn't wash off... it stayed until it grew out.  I think that's because nails don't flake off like your skin does.

Looks beautiful!  How did you get it so light?  It's not brassy or yellow at all.  I'm impressed Smiley

Oh and is henna a good idea? Grin
  henna is a good idea only if you are not planning on changing your hair color until it grows all the way out.  Henna reacts very badly with commercial and professional hair color.  I'm a stylist and have seen some weird things happen with Henna.  Basically the only thing you can do after henna is go darker, and even then the results can be unpredictable.  You can not lighten Henna out of the hair.

Henna is so bad for that! If you use henna and then try to dye your hair, it will boil off your head and turn into goo. They should really warn people about that......lol

Where did you hear that?  It's not true.

Henna and chemical hair colors can mix badly, but they definitely won't "boil".

The natural conditioners in henna can seal your hair shaft, not allowing dyes to penetrate.  That's why you often can't wash or bleach out henna.

If you have hennaed hair and want to use a chemical dye, or have chemically-dyed hair and want to use henna, do a strand test first.  Here's how:

1.  Get loose hair from your hairbrush, or cut a small lock from a discreet part of your head.
2.  Mix the henna or chemical dye you plan on using. 
3.  Dye the loose hair just like you would your normal hair, following the instructions on the package.
4.  Wash out dye/henna, and check results!

You really should be doing this test before dyeing your hair with any type of dye, as chemical dyes can react with one another.  It will also help prevent "oh crap" situations when the color on the box was dark red, but your hair comes out bright orange Smiley

Jillie...I love your journal and the way you've organised it. So creative!!! I am wondering one thing...do you section of parts of the notebook for each topic? Or start a page with a topic, say books you've read or whatnot, and the next page is a different topic, and once you've filled them, start again with the next empty page? Does that make sense!? LOL

Also, I noticed you said it was a notebook from Moleskine...which book is it? How big is it? I have a Moleskine Reporter, one of the smaller ones...I probably never would write in it, I just love the fact that I own it, but now you've inspired me. (I have a bit of a....hoarding....problem. Haha.)


Sorry it took me so long to reply to your post!  I'll try now Smiley

I don't make sections orworry about what page comes after another.  I might have "Books I've Read" on page 1, "Dreams" on page 2, "What I ate today" on page 3, and back to "Dreams" on page 4.

The book I use is an Extra-Large Moleskine Cashier notebook.  It's about 8x10 inches, and they come in packs of three.

I think I have 8 different notebooks right now (NOT counting the un-written-in ones) so I totally understand your horading problem!   Wink

Well, I have three notebooks I work in-- one for writing lists, important ideas that take more than a paragraph, concept sketches, and notetaking.  This is the one I've posted pages from in this thread.  It's an extra-large Moleskine cashier notebook, with unruled pages.

My second notebook is a tiny one, about 2x3 inches, for carrying around in my pocket/handbag.  I jot down things in it... things to remember to do, ideas that only take a sentence or two to describe, phone numbers, grocery lists.

My third notebook is a Moleskine watercolor notebook.  I use it for field sketching of buildings, furniture, etc.

If you check the new Ravelry blog, Casey mentions an Open House that's going to be in January, where people who aren't in yet can check out the site and see what it's like!
