It’s been awhile since I posted…again. I really wish I could stop saying that. I feel like I write that on almost every post. Maybe if I had blogging wine I’d blog more. There’s a thought. A big bottle of wine and access to the internet – that could only lead good things, amiright!? Anyway, this post is mainly me talking too much about my new purple hair and crafting. Exciting, right!?
I am a creative person by nature. I’ve always loved to get my hands dirty, crafting for hours (an hour… What!? My attention span has never been THAT great). However, when kids came along I didn’t know how to reconcile the two. I wasn’t very good at carving out time during the day and by the time night rolled around I was a zombie who couldn’t do much more than stare mindlessly at a tv for an hour or two before drifting off into a sleep that promised to be interrupted at least 4 times during the night. Then I started going to school during the evenings and that and homework added to the kids…well you see where I am going with this. Woe is poor Becca, she couldn’t get her craft on for more than 5 minutes. Boo-hoo! Well I mean, I guess it is a little boo-boo since crafting is where I find my zen…
Anyway! All that has changed. The kids are getting older, I am taking some time off from school, and I am slowly getting back into the creative groove!
To top it all off I decided to take a somewhat drastic approach with my hair. Taking a break from my normal red (which I will eventually go back to, I’m sure) I decided to bite the bullet and do something I’ve always wanted to do. I colored it something fun! It took 4 hours and the addition of about 150 foiled highlights and lowlights (quite an ordeal for someone who has never had their hair professionally dyed) but I love how it turned out! It’s so much fun! It’s higher maintenance but it’s totally worth it (for now)
I was hoping the change would allow me to break though my creative rut. Unlock some kind of creative super genius if you will, haha. Well it didn’t do that (obviously). I am crafting more but I think that’s just coincidence and time. Here is everything I’ve been working on in the last week or so! Zentangle (which is great fun!) and watercolor (also, great fun!)
And what blog post would be complete without at least a couple of pictures of my babies <3
