when i’m supposed to be cleaning

i decided to play with my concoctions…

so i bought some Lo.ng Aid. Activator gel… mmmm i now remember why i don’t use it. it so sticky once it drys and leaves this nasty feeling to you hair. i swear to Go.d i feel like i have a jheri curl!  it gathers dirt too… which means washing more… i don’t know if the co~wash will do it… SO… i think i will mix it with something else… i was thinking along the lines of IC and aloe vera gel… just so it won’t be so jheri curlish!  we shall see!  here are pictures of what it looked like last night after it dried and then this morning after i spritzed it with my glycerin mixture and my leave homemade leave in.   i wrote down what i put in my mixtures this time !! yay! oh and i dyed it with a semi permanent darkest brown.

both in a spray bottle.  love both so far

her is my oldest curly top (Slim).  she is rockin a coil out… too cute.  i think i will do the the coil twist all the way down next time. i only did the top this time. and she was in coils (protective style) for 2 weeks.   i don’t really do to much to her hair. she pretty much stays in protective styles. sometimes i let it breathe but not more than 2 days. but she doesn’t stay in them long because it is a fight to get her to keep her hair tied up at night. she did have a satin pillow but left that at her dads so i am waitin for him to send it back.

Slim got some furniture(used… hey i don’t mind! i love refurbishing old stuff!)  i’m trying to decide what color i will make them… i was thinking brown then painting/stenciling some butterflies on them in purple.  her room is going to be a very light lavender, her bed spread is purple, her bed is brown… so i might do that or vice verse.

new adventure...

that is all for now!

what up! (pix heavy)

heres i goes again…

i made LIQUID SOAP!!!   it took a long time to do. practically 2 days but i started late so if i start earlier in the day maybe it won’t take so long.   i burnt out my stick blender too. ugh! i’ve gone through 2 of those things in 2 weeks!  shame. so i made up some different colors of the soap for the kids. i ran out of my foaming da.il soap so i put some in the foaming pump… IT WORKS PERFECT!  so now i have to find some foaming pumps for the kids to use cause its really to water to use as a shower  wash.   i used a castile recipe and this tut. actually i used the recipe that the tut used only i subed Olive Oil for the Sunflower oil.

i started a baby blanket that is supposed to be done tomorrow…. for a shower. i don’t even think i’m half way done so looks like i’m not going.  i don’t wanna go anyway. i hate baby showers!  anyway i used this pattern from Li.on Bra.nd.  so far i like it and it is very easy and quick to remember.  hopefully i will have it done before the baby is born.  i wanna make some other stuff to go with it like a hat and booties.

i’ve been looking for something to reduce the shrinkage in my hair… still haven’t found it but i have got a awesome curl definition going on.   so i am happy about that.  but what i am not happy about is the crispiness i get once my hair is dry and the white look of the gel.  so i am working on that also.  i also did a cassia treatment because i didn’t want the red of henna… it tuned my hair orange.  so now i will use a semi dye to get it brown so i can go with my original plan to dye it in layers… but i will talk about that later.

i also made the most awesome cake ever in the history of cakes!  it is called a  Tres Leche Cake and i got the recipe from here… the cake is so good!  i will make it every time i go somewhere from now on!  only things i did different was i used Passion Fruit rum, french vanilla cake mix, and i didn’t put the fruit on it.

OMG this is so good!

OMG this is so good!

what i plan to do for this weekend… clean my craft room so i can sew… well shall see… i’ve been saying this for i don’t know how long. but since my kitchen floor is still not done that means the refrigerator is still in my craft room which makes it difficult to do anything… don’t get me started on that!

that is all

hair or body products

ok so i’ve been whippin some hair stuff up in my kitchen.  first is a whipped butter. it is awesome on the hair! i wish i would have written down what i did. but it has shea butter, aloe butter, coconut oil, vegetable glycerin Castor oil, aloe vera gel and vitamin E.  it whipped beautifully and is thick like meringue but melts quick and easy. i put French Vanilla FO in it which is divine!  smells like cake.

the second one is and another whipped butter but this one is more like a brownie batter.  this one is shea butter, aloe butter and coconut oil.   i whipped this one cause i thought i messed the first one up. this one whipped up quick so i thought i did it right. after i saw how it whipped up because it was cool i put batch #1 in the freezer.  after it cooled it whipped right up. Batch #2 has Coco Mango FO which is what i wanted but realized after i did it that i rather have Vanilla.  so now i have to get a pretty jar for the first one.  i like how they both feel on my skin also.

the 3rd batch is kind of weird. i just used up some stuff so i could buy more and i think it was too old so no picture of that!

i got my new stove…. its a stove.  so not much to say about it. i can finally cook without having to worry about cutting myself which is always good.

i made another batch of yogurt… i thought i messed it up again. i thought maybe i killed the cultures because i forgot to turn the crock pot down for 45 mins…. so i quit on the 3rd hour and just left it there disgusted… so the next morning i’m reading other recipes and some say to let the yogurt sit… but i didn’t think anything of it. so i go out and buy some more milk so i can attempt it AGAIN… and when i went to clean out the crock pot my daughter was ewwww. so i turned to look at what she was talking about and i had YOGURT!!!  i tasted and smelled it and it was perfect!  so i didn’t mess it up after all. i added my strawberries and put it in the refrigerator.  i saved a little so i can make more… ok i’m about to start my monkey bread dough and maybe make more yogurt.  i wanna make vanilla… anyone know how to do that???

hey ya’ll!

so not much going on … been doing my thing… but this time i cleaned too so its all good.

anyway i attempted to make the yogurt again… 3 times and failed miserably all 3 times… i don’t know what i’m doing wrong. well the 2nd attempt wasn’t my fault. my husband knocked my crockpot off the counter… don’t ask. i was pissed but didn’t show it.   no point in getting mad over people not giving a shit (sorry… i usually don’t curse over here but if you read my main blog you know i have a potty mouth) about what you’re trying to do and being careless about it in the process.  ANYWAY… this is where i come to relax so we are not gonna talk about HIM!

so i have wasted a lot of milk… i don’t know if i will try again for a minute… but i did try my hand at some monkey bread!  it was fabulous. only thing i would do different next time is make more glaze or a different kind. every recipe that i found used refrigerated biscuits but 1. so that is the one i used because i don’t really care for biscuits.  it was so good. i was very surprised. i bought one from the store a few years back and it was horrible! i’ll have to find that recipe and link it for those who want to try it.

*i linked it*

i also made my famous speckled butter beans in the slow cooker.  i love these things. i make them every week. hubby loves them too…  i used to make them for myself and not share but since i’m trying to be peaceful so i share.

what eles… oh i made some hair cream out of shea butter, aloe butter, coconut oil, vitamin E, and i think that is it…  i but some chocolate and coconut fragrance oil in it… why did i do that? i don’t like the smell but the hair butter is awesome!  i’ll have to whip up some more and remember what i but in it but fragrance it with something eles… this will be used on the kids!

i made some balls for the puppies… oh yeah i got more puppies… i will  be so happy when they are gone! i’m getting rid of the other 2 adults this week. i no longer like dogs. i will be keeping Troy… my first one.   she will be the only pet we have once all the puppies are gone. we have gone through snakes, fish, turtles, birds. rabbits… enough already.  i guess its because i didn’t really have pets growing up.  but i’m done. i might get some more fish but i think i’m done for a while.

ok so tomorrow the deal is i clean AGAIN… make something… maybe some bread or something. my yogurt was a hit. hubby asked me why i didn’t make anymore… little does he know there is more in the fridge… it in a sour cream jug! hee hee! i’m gonna get some of this dammit! i might make some more tomorrow though just cause everybody liked it so much. but since i can’t leave the house i figure i might as well clean… i’m getting my new phone tomorrow YEAY!!!! i’m getting a Bla.ckberry Sto.rm! SWEET! what a refreshing change it will be to not have a phone that calls ramdom people in my phone book and being able to send full text without it sending the text while i am in the middle of typing it and not to mention a full keyboard yeah my phone is possesed. i can’t say how many times my phone has called baby daddy in the middle of the night… of all people that it picks it always picked him WTF! the debil i tell ya! but anyway… WOO HOO!!! can’t wait! i will peep ya’ll tomorrow.

here i go again!

i made yogurt! i made it following Rhonda’s recipe.  if ya’ll haven’t ya’ll should check out her site!  a lot of good information!!  love her site!  it wasn’t bitter or tart at all… it was actually sweet.  so much better than store bought.

now that i have mixed it up and added the strawberries it is more like the drinkable yogurt… i like it better that way anyway!  hubby took some and the kids wanted some for their lunch but i wanted to see if it thickens up a little before i let them take it… i didn’t really make it for everybody… i made it for me!!

homemade soap

i also made soap… ( this was also Rhonda’s recipe but with a little modification cause i didn’t have any rice bran oil. ) it was very different and i was a little nervous and i wasn’t sure how it would turn out.  but i think its good so far.  it has to cure for a few weeks.  i am going to try and make some laundry detergent today… but i have to get something to put it in.  i made a hair lotion for my curly top below. hopefully it will eliminate some of the frizz. i used sunflower oil and aloe vera get… i just put them together because the both promote moisture… we shall see!  i wet her hair and put it on last night then  braided her hair up. but she is not feeling well so i doubt she lets me play in her hair!

that is all… for now!

ME! its getting so long… i need to figure out what to do with
this is just a short post.  i wanna try making some soap today and as i sit here ant the computer… i’m trying to sike myself ip to do it… i’m such a punk.  i thought today would be a good day because i’m slow cookin a pork shoulder so my kitchen is free… i don’t kno

w. but anyway…

i cut hair on friday… i cut about an inch and layered  Ayanna’s she really needed it. her ends were split far and i had never had the nerve to cut it myself but it was getting ridiculous to comb and i just went for it.   2/3 of an inch off Aidan and about an inch off mine… it is so hard to cut curly hair… oh well i get it when i go to cosmetology school next fall.
