My mousy, brown, boring hair.
Yepper. It's the discrimination no one wants to talk about. The elephant in the hair salon if you will.
I was in the grocery store, and a little redheaded boy zipped past me. A woman behind me turns to her husband and says "Wow - that's a fiery head of hair there." People always feel compelled to remark on red hair, which I'm sure small red-headed children hate - but it's just so beautiful and unusual and interesting.
They also remark on that angel white, fluffy hair some kids (and lucky adults) have.
But NO ONE, in the history of hair comments has looked at a little kid and said - "wow - now THAT is brown. That kid has BROWN hair. That right there is a brunette, my friend. Sho nuf."
Nope. Never happened.
Surely we can get a class action suit together.
It's FRIDAY! Did you get the memo? On Splitcoast this afternoon, we have our Virtual Scrapbooking Night kicking off at 4 PM Eastern, so if you want to play in some fun scrapbooking challenges, check in! It goes all weekend, and it's a ton of fun. If you need something to wear, check out my "Keep Calm and Scrap On" T-shirt!
Speaking of Splitcoast - I found this card in the gallery, and it inspired me to make this distressed blue card for my class this month.
Ink: Pool Party, Soft Suede
Accessories: Distressing Tool, Sponges, Decorative Label Punch, Early Espresso Quilted Satin Ribbon
I think Pool Party and Soft Suede may be my new go to color combo. It's so homey and vintage and comfortable. How about that ribbon eh? Quilted satin ribbon coming in the Holiday Mini!
I'm trying out two recipes tonight. One is a pineapple mango jam from my beloved Cindy Lawrence, and then - get this - I'm making a batch of Alton Brown's Potato Leek Soup for the SOLE PURPOSE of making it the sauce for homemade chicken pot pies. How about them apples?
I'll let you know how it all turns out.
In the meantime, next time you see one of us, the boring brunettes, maybe you should say - "wow - you have really brown hair. "
