Well, it took me way longer than I would have liked, but I finally have before an after photos of my hair!
Here it is before I chopped off nearly a foot of it:
I didn't realize how red my (natural!) highlights were until I looked at this picture. (Also, my hair is crazy messy here. It was a long day and I didn't have the energy to fix it up before taking this picture.)
Here's a picture of Glen and me, all dressed up at this past weekend's wedding:
And here's a close-up of the new do:
It's funny, every time I chop off a lot of hair, every thinks I dyed it because it looks SO much darker.
And just for fun, here's a picture of Elvis, all dressed up for Halloween:
He was a big hit with the trick-or-treaters, and hopefully he made up for the fact that neither of us humans got dressed up.
The next couple of weeks are going to be kind of insane. I'm doing a jewelry demonstration this Monday, I have craft shows on November 13 and 20, plus I've been getting requests to bring my jewelry into work so folks can do some holiday shopping.
Add to that two orders for bridal party jewelry for this spring and some custom orders for Christmas, and I'm going to be a very busy bee these next couple of months!
Fortunately, I don't have much going on this weekend, so I'm going to work on making more jewelry so I'll have a decent amount of inventory for my upcoming shows.
Specific goals for the end of this year, profit-wise, include being able to buy a laptop with my Mischievous Kitty earnings (not sure how much longer my current computer is going to last!), contribute to funding two microloans on Kiva in January, and send another donation to the Dear Jack Foundation.
Here's hoping I don't neglect my blog too much for the rest of the year. ;-)
