Last week, I got my hair lopped off, but I still have a couple of outfit photos with my long mermaid-ish hair. Seeing these now makes me regret getting my haircut a little bit, but then I just have to remember all the hassle with the snagging, the shedding, and the tangling, and then I'm in love with my shorter hair again. 

How was your weekend? I stayed in for most of the time since I had set it as my goal to stock up my shop for the holidays AND my the store's 1 year anniversary! I am so thankful for all the support all of you have given me and my weeee etsy shop this past year.
