Turquoise Hair + Yellow Duckies
A week ago, my sister arrived here with plans to spend the next two months of her summer break in Malaysia. If that weren't cool enough, she also brought suitcases full of awesome stuff, including a couple bottles of haircolor for me, which was a major relief since I haven't been able to find semi- or demi-permanent brights anywhere here. I mixed a pastel turquoise and a blue that she'd brought for the results you see here. The turquoise was stronger than I thought it would be, which means I can officially add one more color to my history of haircolors (see this really old post for fuchsia, purple, and blue). BTW....I've had some really awesome hair, haven't I?
Since the turquoise hair wasn't enough creativity for one week, I woke up one morning and decided to cross-stitch myself some yellow rubber duckie earrings. I didn't actually have any earring hooks, but I asked my family to scrounge around and see if they had any earrings that were missing mates, or rusty, or had missing rhinestones, or something of that sort that made them unwearable--and the quest was successful! I stitched two layers of cross-stitch fabric together to cover up the ugly backside of the stitched duckie, attached them to the earring hooks with a jump ring, and they were everything I hoped they would be! I have a couple more pairs of scrounged earring backs so I won't be surprised if I make a couple more pairs of cross-stitch earrings in the future. They are a very satisfying tiny craft.
So tell me, what did you do that was awesome last week? I dare you to beat turquoise hair and tiny duckies. Although if you do beat that, I will be very happy, because the more awesomeness in the world, the better.
