Happy Birthday To Me, oh and the gray hair dilemma....Plus a new layout.

That's right, today I turned 33 years old. I'm blessed to make it another year. Right now I'm just enjoying my alone time, its going to be HAWT today. Where did this heat come from? You know Wisconsin weather can  be bipolar: it can turn to cool in a moments notice. Glad there is a nice breeze....I really didn't have any plans so I may just celebrate on the wknd. Do I feel different? Not really, haven't thought about it much. The only thing I DON'T like is that I've had a string of gray hair since 16, HOWEVER it seems more and more each day more of my hair turns silver! Okay my mother, dad and aunt are completely gray. I don't like it ONE BIT. It makes me look older than I really am. I put a black rinse over it and a few weeks later the silver is showing. I'm starting to look like WOLVERINE...Seriously, why so much gray so early? Well I guess I cant control it coming in but I can try to cover it up. Well I'm going to finish a page and take a nap. I deserve it. Have a great one.

Gabby's class had "crazy hat day" I didn't have any hats so I borrowed 1 from my mom. But SHHHH don't tell her that she left it over her uncles house....I wanted to mimic the hearts in her sweater so I used different heart punch shapes and sizes. By the way, I love the "That's Amore" heart punches from Fiskar's because of the shape of the heart. Also you can see exactly where you are punching. I stitched the hearts and  used Sea Monkey Shimmerz and Cosmos Tattered Angels. I also used a heart cookie cutter with some white paint, however it did not stamp as I wanted so I kept going over the image. If anyone has any tips on how to best stamp with cookie cutters please let me know.

  4. Some women look incredibly attractive and sophisticated with silver/white hair. I'm sure you would, too! Happy birthday! (Oh, and by the way, I've had white hairs since I was in high school. It still makes me feel self conscious, and I'm only 32!! Thank goodness we can cover it up, right??!)
