Best Tips of the Day!

Hi ladies, I just got back from a wonderful day of shopping and getting my hair lopped off! I got some wonderful gifts for graduations, some cute strawberry place settings from Target, an expensive flat iron, Archer Farms kettle chips from Target, some chocolates for a friend, a few scrapbook supplies, the new Home Companion magazine, a new scrapbook idea book and filled the gas tank...big $$ but oh so fun! It's my birthday on Saturday so I'm celebrating all week long!

Sooooo, since I've been shopping all day and admiring my new haircut, I certainly haven't had time to stamp today. But I got a ton of inspiration for the upcoming week. However, I did do some blog browsing today and found some wonderful tips for you......lots of tips.....wonderful tips......FANTASTIC TIPS! I highly suggest you visit Julie's blog for some wonderful thoughts on spending less money on crafting! I know, it sounds horrifying right? But I bet we can all be a little more frugal and a lot more selective in our purchases.

And then, you've got to head over to Pine's blog(Heather Nichols). She has photographed her design and thought process for the Papertrey samples she created for the PT Design Gallery. If you've ever wanted to be inside Pine's mind, here's your chance! It's so much fun to see other stampers at work!

So there you have it ladies, a lot of good information from the BEST stampers and friends a girl could know! Hopefully I will have some goodies to post tomorrow and I might even show you my new hair cut!

My tip of the day: Okay, this is going to sound weird but here goes. I brought home a sack full of my hair trimmings. See, told ya! But.....did you know that birds love stuff like hair and yarn and lint to put in their nests? Well, now ya know! My husband is going to think I'm totally off my rocker but what's new right? What you do is scatter this stuff around your yard and tuck it into little spots that birds might hang out. Then try to find their nests later on and see what goodies are in there. I promise you, it will be in there!

And, according to the movie The Rookie, hair can keep the deer from eating grass seed.

So, where's the picture of you with your new do?

Rose Ann said...

I want to see your new do as well. I bet you look adorable.

My MIL always told me that the birds use her hair for nests....so now I must try it. (I'm getting mine cut Sat.)

Heading over to Julie, and Heather's sites. ;)

Would love to see an updated photo of the new do! Did you also know that if you stick human hair at the base of mole hills it will repel them?? guess they don't like the scent. Interesting!

It's good to take a day and pamper yourself! Inspiration can come from the most unusual sources...Please share your new haircut.

Doggie bag from the hair dressers - been there, done that (though I glued mine to my feet for the Hobbit look). Hair clippings around garden beds is also supposed to keep slugs and snails out.

I found your blog tonight and just LOVE all your cards! I love that tent one the best so cute and such a cute idea. I must try this!

You're right about birds - they use anything! I read somewhere to put lint from your dryer out so they can find it. We had a bird nest blow down from a tree in our yard & this bird had even used an old dryer sheet to line the nest!

Heather said...

MISH- can't wait to see the new "do"!!!! I love when you tell stories, have tips, etc.!

Rachel said...

hey it's MY birthday on Saturday too!

Beth said...

Hey Mish - We must be twins - I got my hair cut yesterday too! It's not my birthday - but I will eat cake in honor of you my Kansas friend. Todd would flip his lid if I brought home a bag of hair trimmings.

PV on the hairdo WOMAN!

Kim said...

You have beautiful hair so you know you're going to have to share a photo of the new do! ;-)

Linda said...

I like the hair!

When I give my family haircuts (yes, I do them all, my hubby, my son, and my daughter), I always shake out the towel outside afterward. My hubby thinks I'm crazy for thinking that the birds use it, but now I have PROOF...and I think I'll start tossing some dryer lint out every once in awhile, lol!

The hair thing isn't weird OR gross to me - we used to get clippings from the barber shop to discourage deer and rabbits from the garden.
AND - you look even more gorgeous - your eyes really sparkle.

I love that you celebrated your birthday all week, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
You really know how to live life, what a smart woman you are. Wonderful tip about the hair, and I will check out your other reccomendations as soon as I catch up on my blog reading. TFS.
