I just got my hair cut today and its amazing how good it can make you feel!....okay so it's been years since I had a haircut I normally cut it myself but I decided to treat myself to a cut and weave and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I now have copper with blonde highlights and my natural curl has returned whoohoo! I was really feeling like an old lady with all my grey and white hair and now I feel excited and inspired :-)
I've been having fun with my new Color Mists on some vellum. I thought they wouldnt' work on vellum but I was mistaken they do, you just have to use the heat gun to set them and then iron or press the paper after because it gets a little warped, check out the piece I did:

Isn't it wonderful that my birthday coincides with the National Talk Like A Pirate Day Sept 19th! LOL So in honor of that here's all things pirate for you!
So are ya wonderin' what your Pirate name is?
Take the Pirate Quiz and find out!
My pirate name be:
Iron Anne Rackham aka Cannon-Balls Nancy aka Aileen walks with a limp Roberts of the Dread Pirate Roberts Clan~
A pirate's life isn't easy; it takes a tough person. That's okay with you, though, since you a tough person. You have the good fortune of having a good name, since Rackham (pronounced RACKem, not rack-ham) is one of the coolest sounding surnames for a pirate. Arr!
How To Be Speakin' Pirate-
Like Startin' Rules
Double up on all your adjectives and you'll be bountifully bombastic with your phrasing. Pirates never speak of "a big ship", they call it a "great, grand ship!" They never say never, they say "No nay ne'er!" Drop all your "g"'s when you speak and you'll get words like "rowin'", "sailin'" and "fightin'". Dropping all of your "v"'s will get you words like "ne'er", "e'er" and "o'er". Instead of saying "I am", sailors say, "I be". Instead of saying "You are", sailors say, "You be". Instead of saying, "They are", sailors say, "They be". Ne'er speak in anythin' but the present tense!
