Dress Blues

I took my dress to the seamstress and there isn't enough seam allowance to have it altered so now I have to wait until November 21st to get a new dress. I am so bummed right now that I don't really feel like posting, but I figured I should give a quick update at least.

Etsy Shop

I am toying with the idea of opening my etsy shop. I have enough necklaces made to last me a few weeks and generate enough revenue to make more necklaces with but I am hesitant. The grand opening of the shop is the one time I can hound my friends, family and random acquaintances that I haven't seen in years to check it out. I want to have enough jewelry on there that they want to come back without being reminded. Logically it would be best to wait until after the gem show on November 12th so I have a large stock to make necklaces out of. My friend that taught me the basics keeps over 100 at all times. I have about 10-15 depending if I want to even list the first ones that I made (which I don't because they have some imperfections due to inexperience).

The main reason to open now is the holidays. If I wait to long after the gem show people will already have done their Christmas shopping.

Before and After.

I have been in a funk. The dress is needing let out, Roger has yet to ask his brother to be best man, the invites are still unsent. I just need a break from the whole wedding thing. So I dyed my hair. It was supposed to be a temporary dye that I will cover for the wedding but now I think I will keep it. I have given in on so many things that I can't control about the wedding I should be able to have my hair how I damn well please. So without farther ado- My  hair.
Right after getting it cut/colored.

Why you don't take pictures after staying up all night.

Showing off the roots here.

I got my invites in!!!

I am so excited! They look great! I have to address them and send them all out Monday because I am such a procrastinator but its worth it. The pics aren't the best but here you go.

And now on a completely unrelated note I am considering dying my hair again. I guess I like it blond (everyone says I look good blond) but I hate the upkeep. I think for autumn a darker shade would look better. I had it a dark red when I met Roger and I think that would be a good choice to go back too. 
I was so cute back then. I was skinny (well skinnier) and had a cute-punk style back then. I also promised to leave my eyebrow ring out until the wedding and that is really getting old too.

I keep hearing "you don't want to look back on my wedding photos 20 years from now and say 'damn I looked like a dork' in retrospect" I would rather look back then and laugh at myself than regret that I looked nothing like who I am.
