I conquered Saturday.

LOTS of stuff to just get off of my "blog it" notepad.

1. I was FEATURED! I know. It's a big effing deal. It pretty much means I'm famous. Go HERE to see me all featured. You should go there and tell them that they have increased their awesomeness by recognizing me as their leader.

2. I got my crafty on! Seriously. It's ridiculous how much I got done:

This was meant to be for a Get Sketchy challenge for last week but I forgot to upload it. Whoopsy. But aren't they cute?? You can buy them in my Etsy shop. Like RIGHT NOW.
Sorry- turn your head to the right. Blogger is being a whore about pictures again. But I made these cards for this week's Wee Memories challenge which had a fruit theme. I obviously had to go with apples because this weekend in Bayfield, WI is Apple Fest. I love, love, love Apple Fest but Matt hates it. So I don't get to go. But I hope to next year. You basically eat everything apple and then obviously cheese curds. Nothing in Wisconsin is complete without cheese curds. Om nom nom.. :) But if you love these, you can buy them HERE.
And then I worked on my submission for the Get Sketchy challenge this week. Again, turn your head to the right. *sigh*. Anyways, this sketch was kind of hard for me and I figured the best way to use up scraps was to use my last six round cards, my last six big flowers and the left over paper from the apple cards. I really love these cards and if you agree, buy them HERE.


3. THEN after I got my crafty on all afternoon I had my sister in law come over. She dyed my hair. I'm Cocoa Bean! Are we loving it? It's a darker chocolate like brown with red tint. I actually dig it a lot. I don't think my husband likes it, I got the "it's...nice" response but I love it. I've never dyed all of my hair, only have done blond highlights, but this? Is fabulous. I'm totally loving it. And my eyes DO look bluer/greener in the mirror. (I'm naturally blue eyed, but they will turn green with certain shirts. Kind of cool.) I am HATING the layers in my hair though. Seriously- when I say "I'm growing my hair out" that means "don't put super short layers in stupid". Yet--- I forever end up with layers. Annoying.
So it's Sunday and I'm not only super tired from Jackson being sick and up every hour of the night, but I have a wicked headache. I need to get some housework done and that sucks as well. This week is going to be crazy busy again so be ready. Like super ready. ;)

Oh my gosh Sara I LOVE YOUR HAIR! It looks FANTASTIC! And I am a huge fan of anyone with blue or green eyes and dark hair (hehe, like MOI). It always makes the eye color majorly pop.

And oddly enough, I have green eyes but sometimes they are blue. We are obviously meant to be besties =-)

Annah said...

I haven't cut my hair in 6 months. Because I always end up with 4 inches less than I wanted cut off.

Yay for you being featured! The nose ring is actually starting to grow on me.

Jean said...

Hi, Sara! I'm visiting from our "tribe".
I love your hair! It looks great!
You are sooooo super crafty. I will have to check out your store.
I lived in Appleton and Neenah briefly. Loved the curds! Had cute, friendly neighbors there too.
I hope your son feels better soon.

Your cards look great! Love the hair! Hope Jackson feels better soon.

Helena said...

Nice hair! I'm partial to chocolate colors myself. And I must say, it does make your eyes pop!

I'm stopping by to say hi from the Pug group!

ComfyMom~Stacey said...

Those cards are adorable!

Joie said...

I just got my hair colored a similar color to yours...it's pretty cool! I am digging the "new look" on both of us!

I am totally feeling your pain about the layers. I am also trying to grow my hair out...yet they keep sticking the Rachel from Friends layers in there. Yep, it pisses me off.

The Empress said...

Hi. I"m stuck in WI with you...how close are you to me? Hope close enough.

And you are talented.

Me? no talent. But I love to see cute stuff. so, that's good.

A weekend that involves being featured and ends with a sick kid is quite a weekend! My weekend was featureless and much more sedate.

Simone said...
