Cool Find: Timberstone Turnings Travel Roll

What a neat idea! If you've ever worried about how to travel safely with your hairsticks, Timberstone Turnings came up with a great idea.

I've seen pouches like that for crayons, but never anything big enough for hairsticks. I might need one of these.

Ravenslair Sale and Ravenscroft Reopening

I know it's been a while. I have a long post that I've been working on, but I wanted to get this information to you guys.

Ravenslair is having a two day sale that starts today. The sale ends on Monday, so get it while you can!

Here's a beautiful fork with a blue Swarovski crystal:

These hairsticks are sure to hold up the most heavy hair:

This one is a gorgeous dark blue. I love the dragons on either end:

Also, for anyone that misses Ravenscroft's unique moon forks, she's coming back! You can "Friend" her on Facebook to stay up-to-date on what she's doing.

Hawaii Tsunami and Japan Earthquake

I woke up to news of the earthquake in Japan. I'm watching the news, waiting for the tsunami in Hawaii to start. I pray that the tsunami is as minor as the last one and that everyone will be okay.

I've already called all my friends in Hawaii to make sure everyone is on higher ground. Fifteen minutes until the tsunami's due.

Update on the Haircut and Brow Color for Light Eyebrows

Sofie's teacher dealt with the hair issue. She told me that all the children sat down and had a discussion about how if you can't say something nice, don't say anything. She talked to them about making fun of how someone else looks.

She also told me that she was really saddened to get my note about what had happened. She was surprised about it issue, saying, "I would expect this behavior from middle schoolers or high schoolers, not in kindergarten!"

We're working with Sofie to build her confidence and teaching her to stand up for herself. I don't want her to physically hurt someone if they're teasing her, but it's okay to say, "You know what, I like the way I am and I don't care what anyone else thinks."

Moving along...I don't know how many of you out there have this issue, but my eyebrows are really blonde. I was using an eyeshadow to color them so they would stand out a bit better. The problem with the eyeshadow, though, was that it didn't last through the day, even if I used a finishing powder.

I hit MAC Cosmetics (my favorite make-up brand,) and asked for some help. The sales lady grabbed a tube of MAC's Brow Set in "Girl Boy" and applied it to my brows. Instant brows! The color matches my skin and hair color perfectly and grooms my brows into obedience!

It's like mascara for your brows! I absolutely love the look and I don't have to worry about my brows disappearing halfway through the day.

I will be taking before and after pictures for you guys as soon as my new battery charger arrives. (I lost the charger for my camera batteries and have used up all the charged batteries.)
