shoulder length hair

it's getting to that point.

the point where your hair is just. too. long.

you know it's come to this when you accidentally roll a piece of your hair up into your car window... or you can't put your purse over your shoulder without moving all of your hair over to your other shoulder...

i could go on, but i'll spare you and instead you can look at some pics of some cute shoulder length styles that i'm thinking for my next cut! :)

one // two // three // four

are you ready for a hair change this fall?

craft supplies

hello there! remember how i mentioned my addiction to buying fabric and craft supplies? well, i have to admit, they're not very organized! i pull out the things i need for one project and keep it in a plastic grocery bag! horrible! it's so hard to find anything i need for a project without shuffling through every bag...

solution? here are some ideas:

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight

how do you organize your crafts?

are you ready for a commercial break?

i never really endorse just one product in my blog posts, but this will seriously be an exception!

i clicked on a facebook ad yesterday because there was a cute pair of boots staring right back at me... little did i know i would hit the jackpot.

the site is called threadflip.

the deal is that you take a picture of an item you want to get rid of in your closet and post it for sale online. you can then shop other people's "closets" and buy their clothes at a discounted rate!

i have been looking for a better solution to a plato's closet or a goodwill... (as much as i love goodwill, sometimes i have a pair of sneakers i have worn once that would be a great sell online!). etsy doesn't let you sell new clothes... and selling on ebay and craigslist- things just get lost in the mix.

threadflip does the trick.

don't want to post your items on your own? solution: white glove service. just ship your clothes off to threadflip and they will post the item for you. once it sells, you get the cash!

plus, browsing for clothes is great because you create a profile for yourself with the colors you wear, the brands you like, and threadflip hand picks those colors and brands and sizes just for you! brill.

i wish i had thought of it myself.

ps- the links all lead to my invite... if you invite your friends you can earn some moolah to spend!
