pigtails

(no subject)

I can't believe March is almost over. At least the weather is finally getting nicer. I don't mind the snow, but those endless dreary days between the snow and spring were starting to get to me. Anyway, it's been a while since I've posted, so here ya go.



My husband and I might go into the woods tomorrow to celebrate the rebirth of the earth. Hopefully I'll have some nice spring photos to share. Until then...

hey, gudu!

i was wondering if anyone was up for an exchange type thing?
i make hemp bracelets and jewelry, along with dreadbeads, jewelry beads, paintings, clothing, and all sorta of stuff.
i was thinking, hey, maybe some of you could use it, and might have something neat to trade for it!
so basically, if any of you have anything un-needed that you would want to trade, i'm game!

sorry about the crappy quality of the pictures- ive got nothing but my phone,
but those are some of the sorts of things that i can do!
if anyone's got any neat beads or anything of the sort, i'd definitely love to trade. :]


p.s:
last wednesday was the birth of my friends dreads, and i helped her start them!
i think they turned out really good. :]

I have a study-partnership with a guy from my anatomy class, and when we met for breakfast yesterday we ended up talking about everything but anatomy, including dreadlocks. He told me that when he was high school he had a dread hawk, which I thought was awesome until he told me how he started his dreads. He used crisco and aluminum foil to make dreadlocks. I asked him how the fuck he did that and he said he simply sectioned his hair with cloth hair bands, slathered the sections up with crisco, twisted them and wrapped them in foil. I don't know how that could possibly work, as crisco is literally vegetable oil, but he said they help up fairly well. He only had them for a few months and I can't imagine how he kept them clean, I'd be really interested to see pictures. I told him that was definitely a method I had never heard before, and I thought I'd just about heard them all.

Now onto the photo dump - pictures from my trip to South Florida and more.

This concludes my procrastination, and now it's about time I stop ignoring the fact that I have a symposium on Creutzfeldt-Jakob's disease due on Monday. Anyone else besides me terrified by prion diseases?

Movie dreads!

I might be a little behind on this but I just saw "Doomsday"
Photobucket
Holy heck Batman!! There were so many dreadies in that movie. What are your favorite movie dreads?

Bonus: My "Doomsday" inspired look for work today.

    Does it offend you? Yeah!

10 month checkup

My 10 month old dreads got some love today from their creator, the mistress of tangled manes, Lish herself.  They look super and feel great.  If Lish doesn't beat me to the punch, I'll post a couple of the pics here.  They've come a long way from the Sideshow Bob look of last May, but still stand tall as pigtails.  Sorry I've been mostly lurking.  I'll try to be better.

Thanks again Lish for you great work and great advice.  I love my funky locks.
