Did everyone have a creative weekend? I did!
Here’s a bit of info about me: I do weird things to my hair. Five years ago I dyed it half purple (much to the horror of my hair dresser – Hi Debbie!) Imagine you’re going to put your hair half-up/half-down. Everything in the half-down section was purple, so when it was all down the color peeked through my natural color and when it was in a ponytail there was a purple stripe going up the back. I don’t care what Debbie says. It was cool.
For a few months now, I’ve been wanting to two-tone again. Red on the last 4 inches of all of my hair, so that when it grows out, the tips will be a different color. When I went to Debbie last week and she asked what we were doing, I told her the plan. She rolled her eyes and let out an exasperated sigh. I ended up with the ultimate victory – when it was done, she said it was “pretty cool.”
I think everyone should mix it up with their appearance every once in a while. If dyeing your hair is too much, play with a new shade of makeup or try new combinations with your regular accessories. (People who don’t wear makeup or accessories… I don’t know what to tell you. I’m girly like that.) You’ll have fun because you’re being creative!
On to the serious stuff.
I printed out the first draft of my book this weekend because it’s time to start the first round of editing! Woo! I chose a fun binder to put it in (made of 100% recycled materials, thank you very much) and purple pens for scribbling (red felt too much like I was being graded.)
The system is to have the text on the left side and a blank page on the right for notes. This meant hole-punching on the opposite side and putting the pages in, one by one, facing backward. Tedious, but necessary.
I’m ready to get started! Wish me luck!
