Hey there good bloggers! And readers!

Why is it that in the middle of trying to find a new "normal" I always want to start a project?
Am I the only one who does this?
Anyway, here I am trying to establish new routine; Trying to get everything under my umbrella of responsibility done in an organized and functional matter, and I can't stop thinking about art projects! Who needs to plan for tomorrow's school lesson, or cook dinner, or return emails or phone calls, or get the menu sorted, when I could cut and glue and sew instead?
You know the crafting bug has bit when I have time to read blogs but choose to create instead!
So here is the project I am going to start as soon as I log off this time-consuming computer!
Last year I saw this at Pottery Barn and thought to myself, you could make this!
I attempted to start last year, but got started too late. I actually went to the PB kids last weekend to see if they were going to sell this banner again this year, but no, they're not. It's just as well. I can whip out a La Vida knock-off and it might be more cost-effective. Although, with the way I craft, it's highly unlikely!
I just love the fall colors and the sentiment of this banner.
Speaking of fall colors...
I need some blogger advice.
You see, I haven't found a hair stylist in this town yet. Which is a very scary thing for me, because if you have read this blog more than twice, you know that I like good hair.
Anyway, to add insult to injury we currently have two mortgages and until we can get the AZ house rented I won't be seeing the inside of a salon for awhile. Desperate times call for desperate measures and I desperately need to do something with the gray roots popping out of my scalp. Which means (I hope you are sitting down....) that I am going to have to color my own hair.
I know, I know!
Here is the random poll:
Do you color your own hair? If you do, what is your favorite over-the-counter-color brand?
Talk to me!
