30 Day Challenge: Make Things Pretty: Days 15 and 16

In Talking on August 18, 2011 by Edelweiss Tagged: , ,

Every day for the next 30 days I’ll spend at least 30 minutes making something prettier (or admiring beauty and therefore making my mind pretty!).

Day 15 (two nights ago) Added flowers to Project Abandoned Embroidery

Start Time – Don’t remember, but I set my timer to ensure it was at least 30 minutes (we have a houseguest who can be very distracting – it was a true test of discipline!)

End Time– 10:20pm

Day 16 (yesterday) Got highlights! I’ve dyed my hair darker or left it natural since I was 18. Blonde is a weird, scary place.

Start Time – 10:15am

End Time– 12:00pm (it took forever!)
