This bird has Style…

Hazel the Hairstylist……She knows everything about everyone and is willing to share it. Talk about multi-tasking, this gal can carry on a conversation with you (the customer), her co-worker, text her kids, cut, comb and blow dry your hair without missing a beat. She’s amazingly versatile! She unknowingly has given you two gifts as you leave her shoppe. The first is a Great Haircut, and the second less obvious gift is you realize your problems really aren’t all that bad.

I’ve missed my little birds, what can I say? Haven’t done one in almost two months. Now, I must tell you that my Hairstylist is not like this at all, well maybe a little…..just kidding!! But there are times when I get my hair cut and I really don’t want to talk about my life, their lives or anyone elses…..sorry! But their social beings, so they’re always asking questions and have a way of getting us to open up.

The yellow-orange-brown swiggles on the right is supposed to be……the customer’s hair. Don’t know if I pulled it off, but doing it with markers limits the colors of the hair strands. I really hope it doesn’ t look like Medusa. That’s a scary thought!

Had to fight the urge to doodle up Hazel’s jacket and black pants….But I wanted her to have some class so I controlled myself! However, if you guys think I should add more patterns let me know, and I’ll see if I can come up with an interesting doodle design for her clothes.

Your birdies always make me smile, and this one is no exception. She is too cute ~~ her stylishness is so appropriate. And the yellow hair blowing haphazardly is perfect. Hope you'll consider including a birdie or two in your SB.

OMG, you're killing me here.....this is FABULOUS Eden. I'm smiling so big right now, this is absolutely hilarious!! Your birds ROCK!! Her hair (the stylist's hair) is priceless, you nailed those curls and the hair she's blow drying is full of movement, you totally pulled it off. Her hands with the feather ruffles.......I mean....I don't have any words for how awesome I think this is. I want one in a frame on my bathroom wall(((O:

JP said...

She's adorable. Bet she'd like to have a pocket for her comb or scissors.

Rebecca Anthony said...

One more thing, I love this so much I just made it the wall paper on my computer for the day.

Eden said...

@JP You are So Right!! How in the world did I really think this was complete without a pair of Scissors!!! Ugh!

@Rebecca- that is POSITIVELY the nicest thing I've heard in a very long time!! Thank you :D

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser! And if you're really curious there's a 3 part Interview by Eileen: HERE All the best, Eden
