hair adventures, part iv

I've been busy the past couple weeks. I went to NYC (and may soon be moving there, hurrah!). I finally realized my dream of touching an iPhone and bought the coolest expanding file I have ever seen. It's from Target but I can't seem to find it online. So here's a pic instead:

I also finally cut and dyed my hair like I've been threatening to do for several weeks. I chickened out about getting bangs but I did cut off over a foot of hair and donated it to Locks of Love, the organization that makes wigs for cancer patients. And then my mother dyed it purple for me. She's a very nice mother.

Let me know what you think of it.

I've been making a lot of things lately. Cookies, for example. Other things too. Like a website to showcase some of the really incredible quilts my mother has made over the years. And I'm very nearly done with a new 3d purse inspired by a Hobo International bag I saw last month.

I went beach glass hunting on Presque Isle (the same place I went canoing not so long ago) yesterday and, while I didn't find much, I did manage to put together a necklace from a tiny piece of driftwood and a white piece of glass. I sealed and strengthened the wood with clear nail polish.

music, and not much else

I haven't had all the much to report in awhile. I'm working on a purse based on a HOBO International bag I saw in State College about a month ago, but it's still not finished. Of course, I spent the 10th repeatedly listening to In Rainbows. Delicious.

The film Across the Universe finally went onto wide release yesterday so my sister and I went to see it. To my surprise, my favorite comedian, Eddie Izzard, was in it doing Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite

Amazing. Just truly amazing. Too bad the YouTube isn't high res. Go see the movie for that.

I've also been working on a website for my mother which I hope to have finished and approved by her soon, so look for a link possibly next week. Sadly, no progress on the job hunt front. I think it's time for a new wave of applications.
