The waves I created from the bee-butt buns that I wrote about in my last post turned out very well. And, here it is three days later and I still have waves and my hair still feels about twice as thick. I wish I could bun up my hair like that more often, but I'm too lazy for that. (Well, I'm really not at all lazy; I just have way too many other things to do!) You wavy people are so lucky! Here is a picture of how the waves looked at 11:00 pm after getting home from the party and having not combed it in about three hours. It had gotten a bit ropey and non-homogenized, if you know what I mean. The waves had fallen out by about 75% (they started out very bouncy), but stayed about as wavy as in this picture for two days - even after sleeping on it. How cool is that? I had the other side pulled back with one of my new FranceLuxe combs and it held all night and looked stylin'. Ha.
In pottery news, I got back two cool pots this past weekend! I spent half the day at the pottery place (though class has officially ended for this session) glazing some pieces to finish them up before next class and picked up two glazed pieces that were ready. I'm pretty much pleased with these two at least on some levels. The brown one is really wonky and looks like it belongs in a lopsided Dr. Seuss house or something and the top is too small for it, but I love the glaze I put on it. It's brown and mottled looking with lots of variation -as you can see in the picture. I like the design on the other pot, but the glaze isn't as interesting to me, though it's a very pretty blue. And the top fits perfectly. At least they weren't burnt like my old favorite pot though, so I'm happy. And I can't wait to start my next class!
I am frantically trying to get all my Christmas gifts made - and then I can relax a bit. I'm hoping that by the end of this weekend I'll be finished with most everything. After Christmas I'll post some of what I've been making since I can't do that now - because someone might see their gift here!
My internet at home has been down for the past two days because of some malfunction at AT&T, I heard on the news this morning. It affected the whole southeast of the US! How can that happen? What if I was running a web-based business? We're already very unhappy with AT&T for other reasons (including no customer service), but this was out of the balllpark. Might be time for a change...
