    hey how did that platinum come out dabbler? wowsa. sounds interesting share a pic share a pic! I get my hair cut by my friend. last time she killed it. the time before she did great. difference was first time I gave her wine two glasses later she can cut hair. the second time no wine and well caffeine is not the best inducer of hair cuts from her. But the price was right. we sat on the back porch and visit and chopped. I was home coloring but gave up. Here there are about six choices of color at the market and they are over 12.00 each. no thanks. I am just a dull mouse ash blonde with a massive white streak right in front. morticia? could be

    oh sewnsewer I just checked out your avitar. oodles of kitties too. how many in your harem of cats?

    Im interested! I think it would make a darling baby quilt, and my husband and I plan on having another next year, so it something I can give the baby with a wonderful story. I also would help in anyway with the planning, etc..... I think it would be interesting is we each choose a color theme and each month got new partners, we would each make one or two blocks a month to swap, and we could get the pattern free every month, so no cost on the pattern. In my opinion it would have to be closed after we started. I don't know how hardthat would be to do, since I have never directed a swap but it's lite work since its one or two a month. YAY, I'm EXCITED!

    Elisabrat, if there were secret meetings, you would know, lol.

    Elisabrat, that is beautiful!! We are possibly getting a foot of snow starting tomorrow night and winds in the 30 mph range, so it sounds like we are getting a blizzard.

    My daughter would love a cat but I am highly allergic, so she has to settle for stuffed animals. When we build on our land I told her we could get a cat to live in the barn.

    That is a beautiful picture Elisabrat! Dabbler, I went redder than my natural this time, and it's redder than I planned! I haven't been this red since Dusty was in elementary school, probably 10-15 years ago. I really like it though.

    Tonight is our formal thing in Birmingham, which is why I paid to get my hair colored this time. It starts in 11 hours, and it's about a 2 hour or so drive, so I'm sure as soon as my boyfriend gets up the frantics will begin since we haven't packed yet.

    Sikesjj, so far there is only 1 person who has emailed that they would be interested in swapping. With me and you, that makes 3. The problem with getting it approved to post here isn't only the potential for cost, but also that the block comes from "off site", so we'd have to post a link to get to it. I don't have a problem with closing it as soon as the first block closed, and changing around partners, but it won't be allowed to be on here as an official swap.

    Elisabrat, I have the 3 in my avatar and my son gave me one of his cats, then afterwards took him back. So... as of today 3 in my brood, but will be adopting another one after I get shots up to date next week (I hope). We checked out the shelter yesterday and are interested in 2, but will only get one.

    MORNING! Dustysmom how did your grand event go? did you dazzle them with your fancy 'do' and clothing? I bet you shone like a true irish rose I admire you for glamming up and hitting the events. I did so many when I was younger but truly dressing up is so not in the cards.. I love the shine though, the sparkly jewelry (oh for vintage rhinestones swoon) and sequins and well oh yeah love that stuff. just doesnt work here. in the forest.. so flannel plaids here I come! so stylish I know thank you thank you

    I am going to put my swap item in a priorty container tomorrow and address it and place it on a nice chair in the dining room so I dont lose it (good at that) and then I seriously will be ready to go. I am going to do that with two other send out items and think that will ease anxiety a tiny bit. No more swaps til I am ahead. absolutely. mostly. pretty sure.. maybe..

    Went to the salon and had my hair lightened this past Friday; I'm still in shock over how light it is - Angie, the gal that cuts my hair, advised me that if I went platinum I would be in the shop every 2-3 weeks getting a touch up - the cost would be $60 each time - I'm too thrifty for that one so she talked me into doing my hair one shade lighter than platinum - it's still very light/bleached looking; now I need to get new makeup to compliment the lighter shade so I don't look so washed out. Back in my day I was a blondie - even this shade - but as you age your skin tones change and I guess I just need to get used to it.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.
