Two years all natural

Already, alrighty it has been exactly two years since I cut my relaxer out of my hair.  Yeah baby, and I am not looking back.   The journey has not been exactly great but I am not complaining.  I can say where I am at that point where I can say I am natural...so what.  I am not looking for a Holy Grail product, I just buy what I already know works and stick with it, if my hair does not like it, I try it on children's hair, if their hair does not like it I give it away and make sure not to buy it again "just to see".  In all I wouldn't change where I am for nothing.  Of course, I have pics.

From here...two years ago...

to this a year ago...

to this a few months ago...

to this, on Friday.  My hair was 
flat ironed by moi...I turned out great.

It has definitely gotten thicker.

Since I am on Christmas Break from work I decided to do something different with my hair, I am finishing up a vid on how I achieved this look.  I roller set every night and comb out in the morning.  This will last two weeks, counting from Friday, the week we go back to school I will be bunning it of course just a lot less maintenance for me in the mornings.  Stay tuned for the video.

Twist Go Bye Bye

I went on and took my twists out this morning, I was sitting reading my Kindle and though hmmm hands free might as well get to workin, so I did.  Unfornately it did not get washed cause I was just busy.  Had to take Baby Girl to the doctor cause she has been running a fever since Sunday, turned out to be a virus that just has to run its course, then when I got home I was mad at hubby just cause he bought the wrong iron (I was just in one of my moods, don't judge me) so I stayed in the craft room making things.  I decided it will get done before Saturday though. Still waiting for my Bee Mine to come in, I am going to give it a try since my Big Girl has micro twists she won't get a wash for a couple more weeks.   Enjoy a few pics.

Picture of untwisted hair, Baby Girl wanted
to take pictures in doctors office.
My sick baby knocked out 5 min after leaving doc.
Her sick :(

And the necklace I worked on while I was mad.
Ain't it purdy.

Itching to get in my hair

I hope everyones week is off to a great start, mine is so far two days of shopping means not being able to get twists out yet.  I want to take these twists out to bad it hurts.  Since I am off work for these next two weeks it is still so convenient to leave them in and just go about my day but lawd my roots are looking a mess and I know I am in need of  a DC it ain't even funny.  I could wash my hair  with the twists in but that is not a good idea for my hair type and would be a hassle to take down.  It is Tuesday night so I am hoping to have them out by at least Thursday night but with all this running around trying to get last minute shopping done and dentist appointments in it may be a lost cause, if all fails I hope to have hair nicely styled by Sunday.  Still trying to figure out what I am going to do, my husband has finally given me "permission" to get a wig (even though I would have gotten one without his consent)  cause he thinks he is running thangs, LOL.  Gotta love him.  Any whoooo, I plan on getting a lot of crafting done this next week also some as gifts and maybe some as give aways so stay tuned.

Headband crazy

go to my Iliketocraft blog and check out my headbands that I have gone crazy making.

Birthday time

Today is my Big Girls birthday, she is 8 years old today and loving it even though she has a fever and slept all through church service.  Maybe I will make her a cake, she has a sweet tooth like her mommy, that should make her feel better.  Her journey into this world lasted 20 hours and as bad as that sounds, it was truly great, by the book labor and delivery.  She's so cute.

Look What I Did...

Hey there blogging world, Look what I did...
I have twisted and prepared my hair for the cold weather.  It is starting to get a little chilly here in the M-Town and I needed to be able to put on a hat when I needed, so a protective style I went to.
I stretched out my hair and to twist I uses Curls Curly Q Custard which gave me great results, my twists weren't stringy, the custard made them nice and plump.

These turned out so cute, getting 
getting plenty of compliments.

Also check out my sewing skills...
This was a pair of great trouser jean pants that were for some reason getting a little too short for me (I am 5'9") so I said what the hey let me turn them into a skirt, check it out.

it's made just like a denim skirt, with
more A-line to it.
it also has the v-cut pattern in the
front and the back.
This is the second skirt I made out of pants,
my daughter has one out of a pair of
corduroy pants that were too small.
I am not making a red pair for my niece. That one will be posted on craft blog.
