What a relief!

I've been growing out my hair for the last 3 or 4 years. I started because my husband commented one day that he wished I would grow my hair out - and so I started. It's been driving me CRAZY for quite some time, and what really is the point of having long hair if you always pull it away from your face. I get paint and gel medium in it pulling it away from my face as I work - their were LONG hairs everywhere -- and it generally made me crazy and feel like an old woman with long grey hair. My original goal was to donate it to locks of love -- but I just couldn't wait for another 2 inches to grow.

Needless to say -- I've been wanting to get my hair cut for a while -- just wasn't sure exactly what I wanted and didn't really have the courage to go for it.

Yesterday -- was THE DAY. I am so happy I feel like me again, what a total relief. The husband was a little like, wow -- it's short -- but I think he'll get used to this -- and not having long grey hair in everything will also be a total relief too! ;-)

In other news, I continue to flutter around the house/studio working on Mixed Media Collage that starts next Wednesday -- I feel like I am so behind and piled up with work it's not funny. Hair yesterday, appointment today, shopping tomorrow --- eeeek! I guess I work better under pressure, LOL!
This is a "reject" well maybe not a "reject" in the real sense of the word --  but collage material for later lessons in Mixed Media Collage at My Creative Classroom. 
While each night I plan to work -- I get caught up with the dang television and a glass of wine and never make it to the studio. TONIGHT I must work. NO exceptions - because I've got a lot of work to do before CHA next week!

Well, speaking of that -- I've got to run. Hope you have a great day - and do something drastic today -- it is definitely invigorating! Thanks for stopping by! 


  1. Love the cut...laughing because I've let my grey hair grow long and I'm liking it right know how that goes ;)

  2. Great hair style Catherine! I have never looked back since getting my long hair cut (very) short about 10 years ago. I still have bad hair days, but it doesn't take a minute to splash it with water and get the hair dryer on it!

    I love the "reject"!

    Take the glass of wine into the studio tonight ........
