I'm Brigid, and I'm Funky

As I mentioned yesterday, I'm experiencing the blues. You all gave me some wonderful advice on how to cheer up. Thank you so much! One thing I decided to do was reclassify myself: I'm in a funk, so I'm no longer cranky, I'm funky. That at least made me smile. I also did two more things to help lift my spirits.

1. I tried once again to brown my hair:

Getting closer. I may actually be my natural color again one of these days.

2. I tried doing something creative. Holly, my favorite bride-to-be, posted a fun-looking tutorial last week on making polymer clay candle holders. I had some left over from her fun lollipop workshop on December 5, so I decided to do a couple of my own. Of course, I had very few of the necessary supplies (i.e. the clay and the candle holders), so I had to improvise. I ended up combining her tutorial with the class we had taken. Here's the result:

They're not perfect, but I love them. See the sweet little candy cane?

I'm going to buy some seasonal candles to put in them.

Today is my final Friday lunch with the man I love. It's been our tradition for almost two years to have lunch together every Friday. Since the next two are holidays and my new job is in another part of town, today the tradition ends. I'm a little sad but also looking forward to savoring the experience. Then this weekend we have Christmas with his side of the family. I also have a wedding shower and a friend party. I shall not lack for distractions.

I hope you have a great weekend planned!

I hope you start feeling better! I know it sounds cliche, but sunlight always helps me...and exercise. When I start feeling funky in the winter, it is usually because I have lacking one or both.

aw, Im sorry you're funky brigid ;) but funks tend to go as quickly as they come! Perhaps your new job will help? I hope you love it!

OMG! Your candle holders look so awesome! It makes me happy to know that you are getting out your polymer clay and putting it to work. I am really so impressed at how they turned out. Also, your hair looks great. Linda and Lainey both told me that they thought you were such a beautiful girl after you left the shower. Best of luck with the new job!
