October Snow Fall

YEP!! You read that title right...

OCTOBER SNOW FALL

I live in NC so we don't see much snow especially in October...but to my surprise today I have been sent many pics by family and friends who wanted to share there wake up call this morning....

Apparently the East Coast has been visited by the snow fairies...Way to early for my liking...Can I say I am really glad I moved to the South...I don't know about you but snow in October will just make the winter season that much longer...The weather here has been in the 60's but the sun is shining...

Here's a preview of some Northern snow...

Romney, West Virginia





Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Nazereth, Pennsylvania


Martinsburg, West Virginia



Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania


The snow can really get you in the "Holiday Spirit"...But, not really feeling it in October...

I only miss the snow at Christmas time then I am over it!!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF SNOW IN OCTOBER???

Quick Vintage Painting

I know you all have heard of the *Graphic Fairy* and if you haven't you need to visit her...

The site is full of clip art images and vintage printable's...which are great for any crafter...I found this adorable vintage design...
I grabbed my 8 x 10 canvas board and printed out the vintage design...

I thought that the best color to give it the vintage look was to do the background in Ecru...


Once I gathered all my supplies I was ready to go...


Having such beautiful graphics can make for beautiful art pieces...It was challenging for me but I had a lot of fun recreating something and making it my own...



TAA DAA Here's the completed painting...I'd say not bad for doing a painting that is totally out of my comfort zone...


Here's the original next to my painting....



If you get a chance check out "Graphic Fairy's" website...I'm telling you she's got some good stuff :-)

Did I also mention I need to get back on the ball and blog on a continuous basis like I used to do...I just don't know how my days fly bye like they do...LOL!!!

*HAVE A SUPER WEEK*

About as Halloween as I get!!!

It's that time of the year...

HALLOWEEN!!!

~Not a fan~

I love fall and all the warm decor' that goes with it...but, I am not a fan of "Halloween" and never have been...sometimes I feel like I miss out when I see all the fun adult parties and the cute costumes...than I realize just cause I don't like halloween doesn't mean I am a complete party pooper!!!

I went in search online of some cute "Halloween" ideas that even I would like and since I don't do anything creative myself  for "Halloween"...I wanted to share with you all the cute ideas in blogland!!!





~Pinterest~
(If these are your's let me know so I can link to your site...Love them)










I hope you were able to get some really cute "Halloween" ideas to decorate your home...

DO YOU HAVE ANY FAVORITE HALLOWEEN DECOR TO SHARE?

Hair we go again!!!

Nothing like life repeating itself!!!

After 20 years working in corporate and losing my job 2 yrs ago it kind of gives you a new perspective on life...Looking for a job has proven to be very unsuccessful...I contribute it to many factors...The economy...My age and being over qualified...I'm not going to say I gave up...I'm say it is time for a new direction in life...

I took cosmetology when I was in high school...I did hair for a year and became pregnant with my daughter...I left being a cosmetologist to find a job with benefits and that paid more now that I was going to be a single mom...Bad part...I let my license lapse (I know shame on me) but it's OK!!!

Life had a different direction for me...It's the funny thing about life...we never know where our path leads but it's one heck of a journey...

I have decided to go back to doing hair...I don't want corporate stress anymore...my kids are grown...and I'm ready to do something I love!!

I have returned to school to get my license (again)...we won't go there...But, I'm not upset about it because fashion has changed so much since the 80's that when I'm done I will be current and up to date on all the fun trends...I've continued to do family and friends hair for fun so I don't feel like I ever really left the business...

So this is what I've been up to lately...(knee high in dummies...LOL)

Back to the basics!!!


Some up-do fun...my favorite thing to do...


It's all about creativity...


I decided to get creative with my own hair...


So far I'm loving it...I can't wait to get out of the 10 weeks of basics to get into the fun stuff...I hope you follow along on my new journey in "My Crazy Beautiful Life"...

I know I have been MIA...and I'm trying to get back into the swing of things...I've been thrown some curve balls lately and I'm just trying to get things in order and balance myself again...Sometimes I think I need to live in a batting cage...atleast I will see the balls coming...LOL

My saying this week has been...

 "God gives us only what we can handle...Apparently God thinks I'm a bad-ass"
