Spring improvements

Over Christmas, I decided to start doing some "improvements" on myself. Some stuff had happened, and I had just been feeling really bad about a lot of things.

Bob got me a membership to a local gym for Christmas, and I started working out pretty regularly.

I'm on the steering committee for a club that I'm in, and I talked those women into focusing on which colors we should be wearing as part of one of our meetings. Turns out I was not wearing the right make-up or clothing colors!

I threw away some bad make-up, and am going to sell the clothes that aren't right for me. I'm already feeling a good bit better without my old peachy blush.

Then, I decided that if I did well at one of my craft fairs I would treat myself to a hair cut. I was in one last weekend, and did a great job! It had lots of kids there, and they loved my stuffed owls and cats! I have possibly not really written about my craft fair stuff, because of all of the bad feelings I've been having. But I've been in three, and did really well at two! At one, there were no customers. I still sold stuff to the other vendors, though.

So, I finally went to get my hair chopped off on Thursday.
Little Elvis took my picture, and Cheese Puff posed with me. He was invited to get his hair cut, but decided not to.
Here we are after my haircut. Little Elvis was the photographer again. I went to a cheaper place to save money, and felt like it was kind of blunt when I got home. I did a little fixing, and it's growing on me. I got a compliment out of the blue from a stranger today. And, while I was getting my haircut, I recognized one of the beauticians from a past craft fair. She ended up buying one of my pain pillows and some bath salts! I'm mulling trying to make a shop off of Bob's facebook page, although facebook is a little daunting.

I LOVE your new haircut! Really! You look so sophisticated! I wish I could bop into your hair-place and see your person!

Congratulations on the craft fairs, too! That's really awesome! I'd like to try them some day, but not brave enough yet. That feels like a big frightening hurdle to me... On the other hand, I did open a store using BigCartel (sort of frustrated with Etsy, but I wanted to have an online presence). It was pretty easy to do, and linked that to my Facebook page...although I have little hope that I'll actually sell anything with social media. I think of it more as reinforcement that I exist.

Really. So happy for you! On man, this is inspirational that I'll able to pull myself together...(once Trixie is finally in preschool - next school year...)!

A haircut is an expense not a luxury. Bob is lucky to have a thrifty and lovely wife so don't feel like you have to deprive yourself and I'm sure Bob appreciates an even lovelier you. Nice job on selling stuff without customers. You have talent.
