Doing the happy dance

My mum is here for a visit – yay! She lives in Barbados and although we talk on the phone quite often it is great to have her here in person. I am looking forward spending time with her and catching up in person.

On anther note, here is my latest layout that I am so proud of. I did it for a challenge on the Classy Coordinates forum where we had to do a Now and Then theme, use a name plate and use notions (as in sewing notions). Since I had heard the latest song by India ArieI Am Not My Hair, I had the idea of doing a page featuring some of the hair styles I have sported over the years. I only managed to fit seven on this page (trust me there are a few more) ranging from 1991 to present day. From long straighten (chemically relaxed) hair to my natural dreadlocks of today. You name it I think I have tried it with my hair (well maybe not the jerri curl thing hee hee hee) Over the years I have straightened it, cut it into various styles, worn different styles of braids, cut it all off, worn it natural in twists, afro puffs, and finally in locks. I think this may be my final “style” but you never know with me. One day I may just wake up and cut it all off again.

Hey you know what they say – variety is the spice of life.

Thank God you didn't have the jerri curl (laugh)! Say hello to your mum for me and I am sure you two will have a great time.
The heat advisory is still on in TX so it's been a nightmare trying to do stuff.
