Annual stay-cation!
Now that the school year is over, I've finally been able to take some much needed time off. I usually take the week after graduation off because let's face it - I'm pretty tired from photographing all of the end of year events at my school. When I was young...

More trim work and pallet hoarding
Now that I have one door down, I decided to start working on some other trim-related projects around the house. A while back I took the trim off of our first-floor bathroom vanity and now I'm finally getting around to replacing it. Took a quick couple of me...

Operation Florida!
I've taken what can be considered an extended hiatus from blogging. Work got pretty intense, as well as helping run my school's drama club, and generally just forgetting that I had a blog in the first place. Sure, I had grand plans that by blogging I'd be o...

Synthetic dread extensions for existing dreads
Yesterday I started creating synthetic dreads for my existing dreads. The process isn't much different from when my original dreads were created in July of last year, but definitely took a lot longer than I originally anticipated. My plan was to install the...

I'm apparently horrible at blogging, and updating my house
This year has been one of those where time just flies by without even realizing it. All of a sudden it was July and I noticed we haven't made much progress on anything. So, I challenged my husband to finish the drywall in our attic before my birthday on Aug...

Bleaching/dying dreads
This weekend I bleached and dyed a few of my friend's dreads. This isn't the first time I've done this for her, but it always feels like a learning experience every time I do it.  To start, it's a lot different to bleach/dye dreads than hair that is not dre...

Fibro and dreads - not always good combo
I'm really looking forward to the days when I no longer have to palm roll until my hands ache and swell. For the time being, I'll suffer through it, because those days will come. Don't a lot of spiritual journeys involve some level of suffering? Well, I sup...
