It's been a long time baby...

Lawd it's been a long, long time but I think I am finally back on the radar.  I have just not been feeling like chit chatting on the computer, posting pics, or just doing anything, my poor blog has suffered and so has my Youtube channel, bless their hearts.  Lately I have been doing a lot of crafting and sewing and what not and decided to give this thing they call "blogging" another chance.  I see the last post was in February, I seriously thought I had posted something newer than that but I guess not, I am going to give it one more shot and if it does not go well this time then so be it.
So what have I been up to?
Lots of stuff, way too much to post in this one blog so I will give you a little of what is going on with my hair, crafting, and family for the right now and as the days go by I will post more updates.
My hair is in stretched loose two strand twists that I saw Alicia James do a tutorial on on her Youtube channel, if you want to see it check it out.  My hair has been twisted for two weeks and is actually coming down on this Sunday cause my scalp is getting itchy and my hair really just needs to be washed.  I really love these twists and can't wait to do them again

Today I wore a head scarf for the first time and now I think I am in love with them, I was feeling really cute in it too, I got this scarf from a thrift store.

I pulled my twists into a low pony and wrapped the ends of the scarf around it creating the bun, you can find some really good scarf tieing tutorials on Youtube.

So on to crafting: my two recent projects finished this week.

Project #1

This is a quilt I made for a coworker, she gave me  6 boxes of tshirts that she has had for who knows how long and I made her a quilt. It actually turned great but I won't be making another for a while.

Project #2, I took these bootcut jeans and turned them into skinny pink jeans, so me! Luv them and the color pink!

I got this project from Pinterest, that sight rocks, surely got more to come.

Lastly just a few pictures from my family reunion in Slidell, Louisian, for those of you who don't know where that is, it is about 30 minutes from New Orleans right over the bridge. We had a wonderful time celebrating the Rockett family, whoop, whoop!

Cafe Du Monde got the bomb beignets...I think that was my husbands
highlight of the whole trip.
Lake Pontchartrain

So these are some of the right now things I got going on.  Stay tuned to more..... hugs and kisses.
