Pretty Embroidery 1.0

This is a little embroidery piece I made for a co-worker's birthday a couple months ago. Over the past several months, I have gotten more and more into embroidery. And I bought some lovely little vintage buttons at an antique show last month to use with my embroidery; one of which you see on this piece.

For a while now, I've been thinking of maybe opening up a little shop with some of my creations in them. Would you be interested in seeing more? Or even adding one to your home?

I've had so much fun with embroidery and I think it's a great way to spend your time.

Handsome, Suave. Beautiful, Cute.

Those were just a few compliments my beau and I received upon showing up to a work meeting last night with our new hair. New hair you say? Why yes, just take a look at the difference!

Before, with the typical 'I hate having my picture taken' face.

C, getting his hair chopped off!

One last look at my long, long hair I've been growing for two years.

And, finally, AFTER!!

You can't really tell, because I couldn't seem to get a good shot of the back of my hair, but it's almost as short as C's! I modeled my hairstyle after Rooney Mara in 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo'; which you also cannot tell by my camera-phone photos, but someday soon when I get my camera back, I'll take better photos with it and hopefully you can see.

When the hair-stylist looked at our hair, she said C had about 8-10 inches and I had about 16-18 inches. We're going to try and senc C's hair to Locks of Love, but they wouldn't take mine because it was dyed. (Even though that was almost three years ago, haha.) It stinks I couldn't donate mine, but we're hoping to be able to donate C's!

So...what do you think? Let me know! I'm still in a bit of shock about my hair, but I do like it! haha When I told C about a month ago that I wanted to cut off all my hair, he said that he wanted to do it with me, that it would be something fun and good to do together. Later on he also said that he could tell I was nervous and thought that maybe if I saw him cutting his hair, it would make it a bit easier for me. This is quite a big deal for him because he hasn't cut his hair in almost ten years! His last haircut was right before his senior year in high school; crazy, right? It's been longer than ten inches, I've seen photos of his hair all the way down to the bottom of his back! When we saw all our co-workers, everyone made the comment that his new hair gave his face more definition and made him look his age. Wouldn't you agree?

Art Exhibit

Last November, I went to the Small Stuff art exhibit opening, at one of my favorite places, Tates; in their exhibition space called The Bear and the Bird. It was a one of the things I did for my 21st birthday and it was really fun. Although, my beau would say I took way too long to decide on what I wanted to get, but what can I say, all of the art was wonderful!

Been to any art exhibit openings lately? What was the theme? Purchase anything interesting? Fill me in!
