For as long as I remember, I have loved pretty hair. Hair that had been combed and smoothed and placed in just the right way. I love going to church and seeing little girls looking pretty.
Then I had daughters of my own. I enjoy doing their hair. It is five to ten minutes just us. I lovingly comb out their hair and play with it and we talk. It is very intimate to me. I have had some of the best conversations with my daughters while styling their hair in the mornings.
When I became sick with my last pregnancy, that is what I missed the most. I missed the touching and the hugs and the conversation that I had with my girls.
I started this blog because I love to create and as life gets busy, I don't get to do all of the fun things that I used to do and this is a creative outlet for me.
So, if I am creating hairstyles, I might as well take pictures and share them with others. What good is an idea if it isn't shared?
Have a style or hair do that you would like to share?
E-mail your pictures to me and your instructions and you may be featured on my site!

A sticky little secret
I had someone ask on my other blog how I got this hairbow to stick to Little Squishy's head. I tried EVERYTHING to get them to stick to The Princess's head when she was an infant. KY, Karo's Syrup, etc. They would just fall off and leave a sticky mess. I just resorted to brain squeezers, which aren't my favorite, but what do you do?
When I had The Pea, a darling nurse in the hospital told me a little secret. Use Elmers Glue. It is water soluble and if you just get their hair wet before you wash the rest of their body at bathtime, by the time you get around to washing their hair, the glue is soft enough to be scrubbed out. Make sure you catch the ribbon. I have had more than my share almost go down the drain.
