Ups and downs

In school a few weeks ago I finally got to do a real perm and boy do they smell. I really like the end result though. Unfortunatley this is the experimental head and it's cut super short now.

Last week I did highlights with the cap and then put a color on top. I chose Flame, the color didn't come out great in the picture but it is a very cool red. I think I want to do this to my hair soon.

This is a style after the highlighting. This hair really doesn't cooperate.

These pictures below are my first semi updo. All of the manikin's hair is short so I don't have much to work with. This is not a ponytail it's cascading curls.

Easter and Flowers

The flowering peach trees Jake planted last year were quite disappointing this year. The weather has been a lot warmer than a typical spring here in NJ. Usually early spring you wouldn't be able to see any of the red leaves on these trees, they would be covered in these beautiful pink flowers.

I decided last minute to make my neices, Emily and Lauren an Easter gift. I've had the fabric for this pillow case for a long time, so I finally decided it was time to make it for Lauren. She is 3 1/2.

This is a picture of Emily and Lauren on Easter with their Nana and Pepere.
My mother is going to be very angry I put this picture in here but I like it.

This is what I made Emily. She can't wear it yet but hopefully this summer she can fit into it. I made another Pinafore top with bloomers.

This is showing the back view of the Pinafore top.
