Hair Anxiety


I kept telling myself – what’s the worst that can happen?!  It’s just hair.  But I shudder as I think of all the bad hair I have had over the years!  Eeks!  I really am not even exaggerating!

I had finally found a beautician I loved-she could cut my hair so it looked great and I she is my friend.  Perfect!  Too bad she traded in her scissors to be a stay at home mom.  Yay!  So happy for her, so sad for my hair!  Now I have to start over in the beautician world.  So I’ve put off getting my hair cut waaaayyyy too long because I have hair anxiety!  I don’t want to go to someone new.  I have crazy hair and what if she can’t make it look decent?!  I know, I know, the problems of the world right here!

Well, I finally have had enough and made an appointment!  I went armed with my picture from…yup, you guessed it…Pinterest!  *Imagine my husband rolling his eyes here!*  I came home with short straight hair.  Today I have short curly hair!  (Beauticians seem to love straightening my hair – maybe they are trying to tell me something…hmmm…)  It’s been over 12 years since I have had such short hair so it is quite an adjustment, but it is growing on me.  Ha!  Catch the pun there?  I wasn’t even trying!  (Maybe it’s time for me to go to bed if I find that funny!)

My new short hair!

So, YAY!  No bad hair cut!

(I can’t be the only one this is important to can I???) 🙂



I Love Felt and Pinterest!


I seriously love felt!  It is so soft, versatile, easy to work with, and cheap!  I have made many things with felt including food, headbands, bean bags, etc.  I will show you my latest felt project in just a bit…

Let me just say some days are just not as productive as others…

Today I spent my free time on pinterest.  I choose to think it is productive — so many GREAT ideas!!  My sister and I like to call it “Research”!

I chose my 4 favorite felt crafts off pinterest to share with you…There are sooo many awesome ideas out there and of course I loved so many of them, but I tried to narrow it down to multi-functional and easy creations!  My 5th pick is the one I created and can’t wait to show you!

1. Felt Scrap Bracelets from Bugs and Fishes



I am totally in love with these bracelets!  Definitely on my to do list!!

Her blog is full of wonderful felt crafts!

2. Great Flowers from Make it and Love it


Beautiful hair pieces made from wool felt…she provides patterns, wonderful directions…just wonderful!

Yep, on my to do list as well!

3. Simply Cute Bows from Ruffles and Stuff


She does a great job showing how to make these!  I love how cute and simple they are!  Definitely see these in my future!

4. Rolled Felt Flowers from Mrs Priss


I have made these and another of her rolled felt flowers and they are super cute and addictive!  She also has many other felt friendly crafts!  I absolutely love to read her blog!  She totally cracks me up!

5. Felt Hand-Stitched to Shirt from yours truly!  (I mean me…Rhinestone Raindrops)

As some of you might know, K-State played in a bowl game last Friday.  So, H needed a new shirt to wear to school!  Since I planned ahead waited until Thursday night to think of something we pulled a purple shirt out of her dresser and I excitedly hand stitched the letters on since I have been dying to try this! She of course requested bling as well!

I am so in love with this!  I hope to have more felt stitched shirts to show you soon!  (“Felt stitched shirts” seems pretty clunky to say, but I don’t know what else to call them!)

Ahh, I really do love felt!  And who doesn’t love Pinterest…except maybe my husband…

What are your favorite felt creations??
