Beautiful Lengths

Hi crafters,

I can't believe summer is well on its way!  This post is long overdue!  My co-worker and I issued a challenge to our school.  We have two teams (think Harry Potter) green and gold and MANY opportunities for the students to earn points through out the school year.  We challenged the teams to see who could get the most points by the end of the year.  We agreed that who ever lost would get their hair cut by the winning team's teacher.  Team green won but I ended up also donating as well.  We chose to donate to Pantene Beautiful Lengths.  We each cut about 8 inches off.

Believe it or not this post DOES have a craft purpose!  I wore a custom freezer paper T made with Plantin Schoolbook.  The back side says "Gold is Green with Envy"

Here you can see our cricuted banner.  We used the Heat and Bond Ultra Hold to make this banner.  The background is felt and the letters are cotton.

This picture I slightly cheated.  I took this picture today after going for a trim so this was not the original hair cut but very close to.  My salon just started feather extensions so I had my amazing stylist throw one in for fun.  This was my 4th hair donation, and because most places will not take hair that has been processed I thought this feather would be perfect!  It should last about 4 months.

I just purchased a Yudu machine and tried it out for the first time last night! Pictures to come :)

Happy Crafting,
