my creative space: lazy creating

This week I've been in a bit of a grump. I believe it may have a wee bit to do with the whole working too hard malarkey, and so now I suddenly find myself doing this like lying on the floor of my studio for 2 hours reading really old magazines, or reading the Harry Potter series again (I'm up to number 3!) or planning the most elaborate dinners. Tonight is Vegan Bento night, I'll let you know how it goes.

So, I guess I am trying to take it easy today, business-wise!

The creative bit - awhile ago my cousin (the one with the new baby) confided that she didn't have as much time to wash her hair since Lucy was born, so she wanted headbands. She will love me broadcasting that, I know. I can totally understand how she feels though - usually I can't be bothered to wash my hair either! And since I stopped using fancy conditioners a few years ago (such as Pantene which contains silicone, gross) my hair is decidedly more tangled and birds nest-ish. So I am loving the headband revelation. And they took like 3 seconds to make. And they match my new clothes which I made from the same fabric.

Also I am working on a new clutch purse design... *fingers crossed*

i like your headband. i could never get away with wearing them, which is sad.
whenever i've popped in here you've been on fire, so i feel like it's completely ok to slow down a little!

Kim Baise said...

Oh Yes! I have 3 wee ones and a quick hair fix is it!!! This morning I wore a hat to walk my son to school....
These headbands are great. A nice wide one might do to cover up some roots before I get a chance to change my hair color again..... (:
