I've been tagged, yo!

And really, because I haven't done a hairstyle in a while..I'm doing it. You know you always wanted to know more about me. Admit it. Eileen from Whimsy Portraits tagged me.

1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.

2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.

3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blog.

4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Fact 1: I'm addicted to Diet Coke. I've decided to stop saying I can quit whenever I want. I can't. And I won't. And you can't make me.

Fact 2: I have two tattoos! Uh ohs. A mommy with tattoos! A religious one at that! OH MY!

Fact 3: I'm a shutterbug and dream of having a nice camera to play with someday. (And some lessons. I have the 'eye' but not the technical aspect.)

Fact 4: I can't stand to see people rub their feet on cement. Or hands for that matter, but mostly feet. I just dry heaved thinking about it. Think..fingernails on chalkboard.

Fact 5: Germaphobe. HOLLA (I hate when people say holla..that tidbit's a freebie)

Fact 6: I was a radio DJ for a couple years.

Fact 7: I play the piano and the flute..well. I did. I don't now.

As for the tagging..well..since this is a pretty open blog, I don't know many of the people who would read this enough to be tagged (aside from my friends..who HAVE to read it...they know who they are). So instead of tagging you, I'd love to say you're tagged if you wanna be, but you HAVE to link me to yours when you do it through a comment. I wanna see :)

Sort of a throwback to the flower but it's a butterfly and not braided. And it's held in place with a rubber band which means, at least for us, it'll stay better.

High Pony it

Separate the hair. I started top half/bottom half

Then top/bottom

Pomade (WHAT! I can't help doing this picture every time..oh my, hey everyone, look at our WII Wheels! WOO! Did I mention I'm still on pain pills? Wow that's a mess. I'm not normally down this low on the floor..this is a really long paranthasee'd parentheses )

Then you bobby pin them down so you can get the band around. I tried to keep it close to the inner pony so it wouldn't be too difficult to get the band around.

Put the band around and you have this.

So you can see how it all got in that other band.

Then you can sorta play with the pieces and separate them making them more defined.

I hope everyone can forgive me

I'm sick. Very sick. I *think* I have strep, and my gland in my neck is the size of a baby's fist. SO, I haven't forgotten everyone, I just can't bring myself to do much!

If anyone has any ideas they want me to post for them, email me. I'd be more than happy to put up pics and direct to your blog until I get feeling better.

Triangles 'n' wormy bunz

We started out doing something entirely different. This one just happened. I love the parts, I have to say. The wormy bunz will take some work. Getting the rubber bands at the base is probably the trickiest part.

First make a triangle part in the center of the hair. Then you twist the hair really tight over and over until it starts to curl in on itself.

Then you let it wrap around and around until the hair is all wrapped. Put a rubber band at the base to hold the bun.

Then continue making triangle parts..inverting every other one. (This wasn't very technical, I was in a hurry)
