A Double Bun Variation


Thanks to my brother for taking the picture!

John 1:6-7

“There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light,
that all men through him might believe.”

May we, like John the Baptist, reflect the light of Christ to the world.

This is a variation of the Double Bun style that I did a while back.  It was pretty easy and took about five minutes. The only thing I changed from that tutorial was that, instead of  shell buns, I made folded twists and coiled them into the two buns.  The flowers are attached to two separate clips, and here’s how I made my hair flowers.

Ta-da!  Have a Fabulous Friday!!!

Gibson Roll

Colossians 3:15-17

15And let the peace of God rule in your hearts,
to which also ye are called in one body, and be ye thankful.

singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

17And whatsoever ye do in word or deed,
do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God the Father by Him.

It’s very pretty and virtually impossible if your hair is longer than shoulder-length. But anything short hair can do, long hair can do better, right? 🙂 This is a very useful style to have in your arsenal. I love its Edwardian flair, perfect for Anne Shirley. The low profile is good for hats. In the past, I’ve dressed it up with flowers or sparkly pins for weddings, recitals, and other formal events.

But before we get to that, I have some news for you ladies. Some of you may have already heard about . . . him. You see, I’ve found someone. We met online in May, and I’d definitely say it was love at first sight. All of my family and friends from church, homeschool, and otherwise heartily approve. We’ve spending over 2 hours a day together, and it just keeps getting better and better. He is the answer to my heart’s duet.

His name is Schroeder. Continue reading
