My new dreads!

I wanted to post last night but we had to take Tyler to karate class and then we watched a Kung-Fu movie so I didnt have time but anyhoo I HAVE DREADS!!!!!!!!!!!

This is me before I went to the salon. Oh and if anyone reading this is in Lousiville Ky I can give you the name and number of the nice lady who did mine. She gave me her website and I would post it here but I cant get it to come up! AHHH! I would love to see her pictures and share it with you guys but it dont work I will have to call her and get her to clarify the web address for me but anyways!

here is me now! I love my hair!

If you want to see ALL the pictures I took of my hair I have a photo album on photobucket of everything. I hate to post them all here cause that would make the page hard to load for those still on dial up...I know your out there, crawling the web like an arthritic dinosaur.

No wax or other funky stuff was used in making my dreads. these are all natural baby! I love the lady who did them for me, she was a Rasta and it was so refreshing to talk to her. She is all about love and acceptance, it was VERY nice to talk to her and I would love to be her friend! I cant wait to go back and see her in 2 weeks for my touch up. I have so much I would love to talk to her about since she is of like mind. I had no idea about Rasta stuff until I met her. It sounds like something I would be interested in so I am reserching it. Anything about love and light makes me feel warm and fuzzy and I totally believe in synchronicity and I believe I was sent across her path for a reason. She totally uplifted me and just really made my day go so much better. I feel so pretty and so energetic again!

I was feeling kinda down on myself before I left to get my hair done but since I have this new 'do I just feel on top of the world! MAybe this is what I been needing for so long...and I finally feel like I am complete...I look the way I feel if that makes sense...kinda like the whole "woman trapped in a mans body" thing but this has to do with my hair not anything about sex or gender confusion...I am 100% sure I am a woman inside and out LOL

Ok I am babbling. I got to go do stuff and Maylee has been up all morning and her father is being kind enough to watch her...must be my dreads! LOL He seems to like them a lot too which is nice to be getting so much attention ya know. I will enjoy it while it lasts!

Update on life in general

I also posted this on myspace too cause I miss my Myspace peoples!

I am going today to finally get dreads! I found a local lady who works at a ritzy salon who is gonna do em for 80 bucks can you believe it?! I was thinking 200?? so I am happy I am getting it done for 80!
Anyone in Louisville who is looking for dreads email me, and I can give you her number.She has been doing it for 20 years and her own dreads are to die for!

Maylee got sick last week and then Tyler got sick this past week and Maylee has had what Tyler had too so this poor kid cant win, she is getting so skinny. But she will pull thru OK once all this sickness is over I will get her fattened back up in no time. We never get sick so its weird for 2 weeks straight someone in this house has had either this weird flu with the high fever that wont break or this crazy pukey poopin virus thing.

I been making lots of soap and not sewing too much lately. Maylee wont let me sit anywhere without crawling all over me and with my fibro being so bad right now I cant take the pain of my legs being touched at all much less having a baby digging heels and elbows into them. So I dont sew...and she has got to where she tries to stick her hand under the needle and she is just getting too dangerous for me to even try to sew...I hope its a short phase that passes but something tells me I am in for a couple years of being restricted in everything I like to do..thank goodness I can still spin yarn and crochet as long as I stand up to do it (sigh) I feel bad complaining...took me so long to have her ya know...

So I feel my business will be changing a lot. I will probably be offering handspun wool yarn soon, and some crocheted items. I am debating buying some hand cards so I can make some batts for other people to spin up. I would love to make batts! So if you see Auroras Garden changing please dont worry. My first love is sewing and i will come back to it when Maylee is bigger. For now I have a couple of customs I may never get done, and when they are finished I dont plan on taking any more. Its not fair to the customer to have to wait a month or more for an item I could have sewed in one day before Maylee came. I dont like to run business like that so I hate to but I am closed to customs for an indefinite period of time. As I can get people to help me with Maylee and I can get time to sew I will be posting clothing in my shop as I get it made, but all I will be selling is premade stuff. This is a sad day and I would rather rip my own heart out than have to announce I am closed to customs....but I have to.

On the other hand, if anyone wants a custom Soap I can do that! I take requests for special scents you may want. I can find just about anything. Designer fragrances, bath and bodyworks stuff, Victorias Secret stuff...anything you see in a store I can find it and make you a BETTER product than what is offered in a commercial store. All the soaps are vegan and now they are also nut free. Anyone with nut allergies can use my soap with no worries. I can also make a laundry soap that cleans amazingly out of any soap I have in stock

So thats whats up with me lately. Lots of changes due to family and medical issues, but I still keep on keepin on! I love to create beautiful things for you all and I will continue to do it just maybe not in the way your used to seeing. My creative energies are being directed in other places till my baby can grow and learn that I really do need time to work, and its nice to sit down every now and then. My standing all day is why my pain level is thru the roof I know. By bedtime I can hardly walk...this is every day, and its wearing me down seriously. I need a vacation!
