Elegant Hairstyles for Long Hair

Hi friends *Ü*  This is part 2 to my last post showing some cute hairstyles for girls. My daughters are having so much fun wearing these fun new hairstyles to school and church & hearing all the compliments.  Here are a couple they can wear on more fancy occasions....

This first one is so pretty and I love how you can just tuck in the remaining braid tail to cover it up.  

This next one I did on my (almost) 13 yr. old Maddy... it's a very loose updo, but you can make it as tight as you want.  :)   Here's the video tut
 and this next one is too easy... you just section off a small part on each side and then take the big middle part and tie it in knots!  I knotted it 4x (like the video) but you can do as many as you have hair for.  Then take each side and twist it and wrap it over and around the knots and bobbypin it.  Maddy wore this one to school the other day --  Love it!  :)  Here's the tut
I'll be back Wednesday with a Guest Designer project - (not hair related, LOL)  BYE!

Cute Hairstyles for Girls

Ever since I was a young girl, I always loved styling hair... first on my Barbie dolls and then on my older sister.   I even thought about attending beauty school (never happened).  But thankfully we have this wonderful world wide web ... okay, Youtube specifically with fabby tutorials on styling girls' hair!  These are so fun... especially now that my own girls are teens and will sit still and actually want me to style their hair *Ü*  This is my new favorite site  Cute Girls Hairstyles (Braids)

Here are a couple styles I tried on my daughter Carly this week...

They also have great updo's for Proms and weddings etc. so be sure to check those out!

Hello, My Name Is

Hello, my name is regret
I'm pretty sure we have met
Every single day of your life
I'm the whisper inside
That won't let you forget

Hello, my name is defeat
I know you recognize me
Just when you think you can win
I'll drag you right back down again
'Til you've lost all belief

These are the voices, these are the lies
And I have believed them, for the very last time

Hello, my name is child of the one true King
I've been saved, I've been changed,
and I have been set free
"Amazing Grace" is the song I sing
Hello, my name is child of the one true King

I am no longer defined
By all the wreckage behind
The one who makes all things new
Has proven it's true
Just take a look at my life

Hello, my name is child of the one true King
I've been saved, I've been changed,
and I have been set free
"Amazing Grace" is the song I sing
Hello, my name is child of the one true King

What love the Father has lavished upon us
That we should be called His children
I am a child of the one true King
What love the Father has lavished upon us
That we should be called His children

Hello, my name is child of the one true King
I've been saved, I've been changed,
and I have been set free"
Amazing Grace" is the song I sing
Hello, my name is child of the one true King

I am a child of the one true King

Sweet New Digis Released Today!!

Happy Friday friends!!  Today I have some sweet new digi sets being released at McMahon Five Designs, along with some other fabby illustrators!

I just have to share that this digi holds a very special place in my heart as I drew it based on a photo of my  youngest daughter Maddy when she was about 9 weeks old.  She was our preemie, almost 7 weeks early and spent about a month in the NICU.  This picture was taken just after she got her feeding tubes removed. 


Includes the baby girl + 6 sentiments/verses


Also released today is this sweet paper pack

Sweet Pastels - digi papers

Lots more being released at McMahon Five Designs, so head on over to the M5D BLOG to see them all and to see Card samples by the Design Team!!
