If you happen to be over on our Welcoming House Facebook page, or even on my Handcrafts page, you would be seeing some fun new crochet animals I have been working on for Spring events coming up, and for filling up my Etsy store later in February.
Actually, one of the fun things I have been planning on doing is writing up patterns for some of my cute creations, and putting them up here on the shop tab. Honestly, I love my life, and I love creating and crocheting…but I just cant keep up with the demand of what people want to order. So that seems like a fun alternative…and then I will just ask people to send me their pics. LOL. And upload new items for sale when I have time to make them.
But my CUTEST creations for yarn have little to do with me, and a LOT to do with our lovely birth mom, and a crazy video we watched on Facebook of all things. (This is one time I wont curse that autoplay feature on FB videos)
If you know much about me after reading this blog, you HAVE to know I love color, and fun, and anything that falls in those categories falls into my “have to try it” part of life. The Handy Hubby has a list of stories longer than both his arms put together of epic triumphs (and failures) that would fall within those boundaries.
This one however, was an awesome victory, and has now become a mainstay.
If you are a mom to adopted kids, especially one that are ethnically different from you, you know its a learning curve to work with all different aspects of their body care.
Hair care, especially, can be super challenging.
For a couple years now, my girls as they have gotten older, have had some hair challenges. Not that their hair was not healthy and gorgeous, but that their poor mamma was hopeless when it came to making it as gorgeous as it could be. And then came the day that my daughter Clara looked at me and told me that she wanted long blonde hair.
Now, this mamma got UPSET, people. I love their hair. I love every crazy curl and tangle, and wild woolly morning bed head. And I knew I had to do something.
Sooooooooo….lets chat about that video in the hopes and encouragement of helping another mamma who finds this looking for something to do with their daughter’s hair and help them find pride and love for what God graced them with in abundance.
