Yarn blobs and Hair bunz.

I am running on 2 hours of sleep! I pulled an all-nighter, took a two hour nap from 11:30am – 1:30pm, and worked and worked and worked until flying to FedEx by 5pm, only to find out the deadline is actually 7:30pm for the West Coast deliveries! Doh! Anyway, I have no idea why this particular project took so long, as each piece was actually quite simple. I did make 42 pieces though so may be that’s why. You’ll see next week after we come home from L.A.!

Here’s a photo right before I ran off to FedEx. I felt very triumphant because my hair has not been long enough to put up like this until now! I almost chopped up my bangs again just then, too, but held off. I should probably make a proper hair appointment as my roots are also gross, but I can’t seem to get my hands on any Atomic Pink right now!

Little hair bon bon was a prezzie from CutieDynamite.

The rest of my night will be cleaning up my giant yarn mess, starting another secret project that will go in a prize bag for a contest, and plotting possible Valentine’s day items! I think I am also going to be part of a small trunk show at Hairy’s art gallery right before Valentine’s Day! No rest ever! 😉

    I thought they stopped making Atomic Pink? I haven’t been able to get it for the last year or so.

    Wow, you have been majorly busy! I have to tell you, my two year old was hanging out while I read this post so I picked her up and pointed to the picture of yarn and asked, “What’s that?” well I guess she saw the picture of you instead and said, “Shortcake!!!” (She currently has an addiction to Strawberry Shortcake so believe me, that was a huge compliment. lol)

    Get some rest!

    I’m envious of your lifestyle! I would love the time to crochet all day!

      There was definitely a time when it was just a dream 🙂

  8. i need to show my hair stylist pics of you, because I’m sporting black with whitish/blonde highlights and no matter how much i beg for CHUNKY, i get conservative highlights….lame, but i don’t dare to try it myself.

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      I don’t dare try myself either!!! Do the gals at your salon also sport funky hair? I find that if the person doing your hair also has funk hair, they will not be as afraid. I think they just don’t want you to be mad if they make you look weird!

      1. it’s called Pin-Ups and it’s the “coolest” place in Ventura to get your hair done, but thats not saying much. I should consider a drive to Los Angeles. I’m already shelling out up to $200 for my hair, so I don’t LA can scare me too much.

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      Thank you very very much for the super nice note! 🙂

      Thank you so much, Mandy!!

  12. Your hair is super cute like that. i wouldn’t worry too much about your roots; it totally looks intentional
