I wanted to do a late dread update this week,
because my dreads turned one month old already!
So here are my babies at one month old. Still pretty delicate and soft, but their starting to form more on their own, and pretty soon I'll be able to remove the hair bands on my lower half of the head. Yes they are my perfect little dreadies, the only problem is that they are trying to congo (Congo means, that two dreads are becoming stuck together and will grow together if given the chance) which is bad because I don't want a head of matted joined together dreads. So I have been trying my best to pull them apart from each other, and when I do, they make this ripping sound and I get nervous that I'm hurting them. So right now my head is kind of sore from all that pulling and ripping.
I think this may be the cutest thing I have every thought of doing. I found this old heart locket that was missing the chain, so I replaced it with a leather cord and began to start thinking about what I should put inside of it. After a lot of hard thinking and debating on when whether I should put in a photo of my dog or someone else. It hit me, why not put in the thing I love the most in my room? My guitar and ukulele! So as you can see there is now a photo of my uke inside and behind that photo lies
another photo of my guitar and I. This locket will be a shocking disappointment to everyone that closely knows me and expects to find a picture of themselves inside, only to find out that the thing I love the most was really my instruments.
So I'm coming down to the last few pages in my poetry journal, and anxiously searching around for a new one that I could start. That's when, while searching around the journaling section of Pinterest, I came across this new trend called smashbooking. I began to start searching all over the internet for a better definition on what smashbooking is. It's really a mix of journaling and scrapbooking, only they say it's for the person who doesn't have time to prepare a full on scrapbook page. My definition, it's just a lazy version of memory making. Basically, you just go wild! Writing and pasting whatever you want without worrying if it's perfect. Thought about making my own and buying a book from the Smashbook brand. Hopefully I'll find one soon and continue my poem writing journey.
