So, the possible solutions, 1. A WIG 2. Some goth make-up with a black leather and spike dog collar. or 3. A plethora of scarves that I can tie around my head with a big bow at the back until it grows. As you can see in the picture, it's going to take a big bow. So, if you wonder how I look there it is. AND to add insult to injury, I got my camera out to take pictures and guess what? The LCD screen has somehow broken so you can't see what you're taking pictures of! I have no idea how that happened, but it's so frustrating.

My friends and I made this quilt for another friends wedding. It was a whirlwind. We made it start to finish in 4 days....talk about hectic. It's one of those projects that was good in theory, but then reality sets in and you realize that you should have left yourself more time or picked out a gift from a store.. However, I have to admit that the finished product was beautiful.
In the same week that we tackled the quilt, we ended up in another pickle...literally! We got 5 cases of free cucumbers and decided to make pickles to put in our storage. Mom and I had fun with the process and we made some delicious dills and sweets.
My friend Wendy and I made curtains for her roommate. We made them for her doorway and her window. I think they turned out awesome. I want to make some curtains for me now. We'll see if that actually ever happens ;)
She doesn't have a door, so we wanted to make them look nice from the hallway too. So, we put a sheer overlay on the back. I really like how it looks.
Here are the set for the window.
This next picture is for Sarah - how's this for an inspiration purse!?
I love it!
This summer, I was in Idaho and went to Tautphus Park Zoo with my mom and Jer and Heidi's family. We had a great time. This video is of the Gibbon monkeys that we saw. They make the loudest noise ever and were hilarious to watch because they entertained themselves by swinging around the cage and then slamming into the glass to scare the people watching. This one's for Jer & Heidi.

This past Wednesday, we had 6 guys from church come over and carry the extremely heavy garden boxes back onto the beach and fill them with dirt. The yard is slowly coming back together. Aren't you so sad that you aren't here to help? You're missing out on all the fun!!!

About 15 minutes later, the tree looked like this....
Here is the truck that delivered the tank on Friday morning. That tank looks like a concrete vault. I have a video of the tank being dropped in, but I couldn't get it to load. I'll try to get that up eventually.
