Hand lettered invitations to Quest for HRHs and landed Baronages = done. Need to figure out how to get these to Bianca asap.
Also, this portrait is full of win. But I need to find something that won't make me die of teh heat for summer wear.
I've been asked to teach a hair class at Uprising. Which would be SO fun to do, but I'm not 100% sure I'm going to be able to make it to Uprising, so I don't want to promise anything. Speaking of hair - I think I've been making a name for myself in the hair department - I usually can kiss goodbye to the first 1-2 hours (sometimes 3!) of any event getting people dressed and doing their hair. I really need to get a hair kit together. Not that I'm complaining - I *love* it! :D I wish I had taken pics of all the gals at KA&S - everyone looked SO cute. I think I finally nailed down how to keep veils on with straight pins (woot!!), as well as keeping the slipping-off-the-back-of-the-head turban from actually slipping off. It did actually start slipping off towards the end of the day, but next time, I think I can make it stay on even better.
This was the inspiration for Bianca's 'do....I totally was thinking of the one on the right, but hadn't seen the portrait in a while. I really think I pulled it off fantastically, if I do say so myself. Darn me for not taking pictures at the event!
ETA - here is a kind of sideways picture of Bianca's hairdo at KA&S to compare with the beturbaned lady above:
And this is what I had in mind for Holly's new 'do. I tried something different, and it turned out quite nice if I do say so myself. It looked like it stayed in pretty well, Holly.....how'd you like the new style?
My Laurel asks to borrow my pulled work caul pretty much every event. I should just give it to her.....I was on the verge, but then she asked me to teach her how to do pulled work, so she's starting on her own! (muahahaha....spreading the textile love)
