How To Crochet: The Waffle Stitch – perfect for scarves, dishcloths and more!

How To Crochet: The Waffle Stitch – perfect for scarves, dishcloths and more!

I keep going back to the same few folks over at YouTube for learning to crochet different items. This waffle stitch is no different. In fact, it was the first thing I crocheted after discovering that my visual learning abilities could be satiated by watching crocheting-on-YouTube videos. I am so in love with this waffle stitch. I’m not sure if it’s because it was my first or that I made something for my mom (who told me all about the videos), but I just love this stitch. I … Read more…


Week 13 Hair Update – No Video, Just Words

There was supposed to be a video today but THAT isn’t happening. No video, just words. Week 13 hair update. Yep. Here it is the new year and we are growing well and GOOD with this head of hair, I’ll tell ya. I’ll be showing you, too. I promise. I even did something crazy, too. I colored it. Yes. I broke down, gave in, and got out a box of hair color. I didn’t do it for any other reason than I was beginning to feel like I … Read more…


Video: I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas – sung by MD!

You know I planned to be here with a video message this Christmas Eve. And here we are – the night before Christmas (not a soul is stirring because as usual, I’m up at some ridiculous hour – ah, I love this thing I do. Truly, I am so blessed to do what I do…). But I told you that I’d stop by today and share a special holiday message with all of you. What I didn’t plan on was having someone dear to me do it better … Read more…


Video: Week 8/9 Update – Hair, Holidays, New Look, and Love

It wouldn’t be a video update without some sort of madness, now would it? This week 8/9 update – hair, holidays, new look, and love is a combination of madness, discovery, and FUN. You see, there was a boo-boo with last week’s update number 8 (oh how I love that squishy number!)… Need more? Discover 8 fun facts about the number eight… …and so what I thought would be a lovely addition to this week 9 hair update, simply didn’t happen. But as you’ll see below, I made … Read more…

Video: Week 7 Update – Turkey, Hair, and Papi!

I am so especially excited about this week 7 update – turkey, hair, and Papi. Probably because it does combine 3 of my favorite things – not necessarily in that order. HA! But yes, this week’s update is all kinds of sweet and a little sappy and…well, it’s actually wicked short, too. YAY. Shall we get right to it? Drum roll, please… Week 7 Update – Turkey, Hair, and Papi! Yah. I know, right?! Okay, a bit of truth. I’m a tad annoyed with myself for hollerin’ the … Read more…

Video: Week 6 Hair UPDate – Blending – 6-2-1.5!

Here we are with our week 6 hair update (the real week 6, I said) and we are blending today. YAY! I don’t want to give too much away before you watch the video but it’s a multi-guard experience, people. Whoa. Want more? See the whole series at Hair It Is… I had to. We (me and that mouse in my pocket) were starting to look a bit straggly. Yikes. So yes, Blending. With a #6, a #2, and a #1.5. And it is FABuLOUS. Of course. I … Read more…


Week 5 “hair” Update – Discussing My Condition

Week 5 “hair” Update – Discussing My Condition

Before we begin discussing my condition, let’s get the BIG BOO-BOO out of the way. Otherwise my Type A, OCD (and let’s be totally honest – anal retentive) side will not let it rest… This is NOT WEEK 6 UPDATE. There. I said it. Whew. You may realize, while watching the video, that I was not on top of my game this week during filming. First and foremost, when I apparently believe we are 6 weeks in on the Shaving My Head Bald updates. Even more ridiculous is … Read more…


Video: Week 4 – Some Shavin’ and Talkin’ Goin’ On!

Video: Week 4 – Some Shavin’ and Talkin’ Goin’ On!

Here it is week 4 in this shaving my head bald series and we are doing some shavin’ and talkin’ in this video update. I make no apologies for the length of this week 4 update; it was more than 19 minutes uncut and I managed to slice it nearly in half. Boy HOWDY but I was wordy this past Sunday. Or so it seemed. As I was shavin’ and talkin’, it didn’t seem like it was talking an unnaturally long time but tis what it is. I … Read more…


Video: Dear President Obama – An Open Letter

Please Note: The video below is LONG. I make no apologies, I tend to be wordy and often say what I mean and mean what I say, more than once. This message is meant for President Obama, but is also for all of us. For those of you who don’t wish to sit through the entire “letter”, you may fast forward to 12:35 and most likely feel like you didn’t miss a thing. You’re Welcome! 🙂 Getting to meet the President of the United States of America was … Read more…


Video: Week One Update – One Guard Trim!

Video: Week One Update – One Guard Trim!

Week One One Guard TrimHere we are, finally. Almost caught up. Getting there, anyway. 2 1/2 weeks after the original shave and with this post I’m sharing the week one update – one guard trim. YAY! This video is a tad long as I did a bunch of talking…

Hey. I’ve never said I wasn’t wordy; either by text or video. Tis what it is, I say.

And I do appreciate those who take the time to read and listen. Truly. 🙂

However, I also understand sometimes lengthy is just darn too long. Which is why I did this for ya. I rather like it, too. There will be more of that down the road, I reckon. YAY!

But in THIS video, I catch you up on the week with the growth and then I’m off and shaving. What little there is to take off, that is. I have a plan, I said. Let’s just watch!

Week One Update – One Guard Trim!

Pretty easy, right? It’s funny (strange…). I know that my hair has been falling out for some time but for all my life it has always grown rather quickly. It seems to be doing that now, too. I think the reason it wasn’t getting any longer than it past my shoulders was perhaps, for a variety of reasons; but boy HOWDY. At this length? It’s growing well and good. Or maybe I’m just wishing on it. Either way, I hope you enjoy this week one update of the growing out process after shaving my head bald. One more update (last Sunday’s 2nd week update – coming this Friday) and we should be right on track going forward.

I do so like to be organized. As best as this condition of mine allows me. Yikes. Plus, I have plenty MORE to post about, not JUST about hair and I’m happy to bring that to you, too. Stay tuned and “see” you soon!

~ Cheers
