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.
1st time useing Long Aid Gel Actavator
Glyerin Spray~ water, glycerin, vitamin E, sweet almond oil, and castor oil
Leave~in ~ Orga.nic Coc.nut Milk conditioner & water
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.
2 weeks ago forgot to ake a pic w/out rollers
2 weeks ago
Slim with the Coil Out
i finished MizzPrizzy’s furniture and i put it back together… well i’m not totally finished. i have to pick out a some fabric that will be her curtains and whatever it is will be the back wall on the dollhouse bookcase.
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.
that is all for now!

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.
this stuff stinks
back almost dry
i also painted my daughters’ furniture. it was white now it is beige with a shimmer to it. i have to put the hardware back on and then i will take pix of the finished furniture.
BEFORE (excuse the mess *shame*)
doll house book case
can u see the difference... probably not
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!
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
