Yeah, not so much that it sounds complicated as it sounds messy, with the circulars dangling...I'm also just set in my ways, heh. :)

I am a dirty cheating Russian because halfway through the games I switched projects! This is my finished object for #Olympalong  #2016

An Olympian has crossed the finish line! Her medal will likely come into question later due to her country of origin and their penchant for cheating, but that will be when someone else is running cause I was definitely bribed into keeping silent. Hooray!

I'll show you mine if you show me yours (WIP)  - 
 

Yumiko Alexander is fast becoming one of my favorite designers. She lives in Chandler, Arizona, local for me. Her designs are just beautiful. I could easily make every design in the book. I am currently working on Winter Rose. I altered the pattern a bit because my yarn was not as bulky as the design called for. It is truly beautiful as is everything in the book. Who is your favorite designer?

I think I've already showed you mine in a hangout, but for the sake of this post, I'll do it again. Alicia Plummer and Melissa Schaschwary consistently create designs that I love. Not every thing they do, but a better part of their designs I end up queuing. It's an addiction.

First I would like to say that the salon itself was beautiful. The other stylist may have been better. Lacy, however, was not. First she did not seem excited that I was there. She was very down and seemed to be more excited about getting off work than coloring my hair. She even made comments about how she was going to be happy about the day being over. That's fine, I get it, folks have bad days. If that was it and my hair was amazing I would consider going back. This was not the case. She did not spend much time cutting my hair. I have had more time spent at Cost Cutters and they are on a time limit. She even told me that she didn't think that layering my hair was a good idea. Gave me and excuse that my hair was thin... I felt like she just did not want to take the time to cut and texturize my hair. The color! Oh my! I went to dinner after and my date pointed out that I had color in my ear. I went to the bathroom and the inside of my ear was black! This is totally unacceptable to me. As I took a good look at my hairline it was also black. I don't make that much of a mess when I color it myself. I am not sure if she is just unprofessional, having a bad day, hates her job or what. Leaving that much color on a person is just not okay and does not meet the standard of a quality salon. Perhaps this was because I bought a package through groupon? I would think that the goal of a groupon sale would be to build clients. If you leave color in my ear to the point that the entire inside is black and leave color on my hairline do not expect a call back. The other stylists may be much better and definitely seemed happier. So go to the salon, see anyone but Lacy and you will be golden!!!

The website to upload printing was slow and did not sent my job to the store. When I called the store the guy told me that google sucks and I cannot use my drive to upload files. When I asked him why my job did not send he said I don't know. He said that he could not help me. Educate your employees please! I have emailed you a job in the past and there was no issue.
