"Everyone can create. You don't need power, position, or influence in order to create something of substance or beauty...try to see how many smiles you can create...As you take the normal opportunities of your daily life and create something of beauty and helpfulness, you improve not only the world around you, but also the world within you." -Deiter Uchtdorf
I've been working like crazy the last few weeks building my new business. And it has been amazingly successful so far! I am loving interacting with new people, but it does come at the cost of many of the other "fun" things like doing hair!
Anyway, just wanted to announce a new giveaway! $45 of store credit! Here's the link to enter!
This is the hairstyle I did today. I started with a simple low ponytail, split it into two sections- rubberband down each section and then tie in knots. I just looped the ends under the bun and pinned in a few spots. A nice simple-but-looks-complicated hairstyle.
This took about 10 minutes with dry hair- 3 braids, 4 rubber bands and a few bobby pins.
Start by French braiding the top section of your hair- just below your ears. Braid to the end and band at the bottom. I then folded the braid in half and banded closer to my head to make a "bun"
Take the bottom section and split it in two making basic braids with each side. Band at the bottom.
I curled the hair at the ends of the braids so they wouldn't be fuzzy, but if you have nice cooperative hair, you can skip that.
Finally, take the two braids, pull them up and over the bun, and secure under the opposite side. (So the bun will be able to cover the ends) All that is left is to secure the bun around the ends of the hair!
I will most likely add a headband when I am out and about, but they hurt behind my ears for long term wear. Has anyone found a solution for this? Maybe I just have a bigger head than most. :)
If any of you have been following for the life of this blog, you will know that a makeover has been a LONG time due. I love this blog, and I love fixing hair, so I am going to make an effort to post more regularly!

I am keeping this little cutie next to my computer to remind me to post! :)

I finally finished these cute little Super Heroes! Michael loves them and is happy to finally have one of my projects be for boys. I guess with 3 girls I am usually doing girly things. :)
I have been such a bad blogger over the last few months. It seems like things are constantly getting in the way, or I find things that are just more fun that sitting in front of the computer. I have been doing a lot of furniture refinishing and random painting over the last few months, as well as random other projects that seem to suck all of my free time away. I still do hair- most every day times 4 actually- but it's not pictured and made into tutorials anymore.
So I'm thinking I will be using this blog for random projects. Just fun things that I've been working on. So here's the most recent- Princess Peg People!
I'm sure you've seen these around blog world, I think the first place I ever saw them was LilBlueBoo and since painting nativity sets this Christmas, I've wanted to do more with these cute little pegs- I've done a family set, and ones that are painted to the specifications of kids, and all were really fun. These princesses were beyond fun though- I loved all of the hours it took to paint them. I'm glad someone ordered them without knowing exactly how they'd turn out so I had an excuse to finally get them done! This is the little princess army I created this week for a customer:
