The Rusty Pistol

As some may know... I recently started a little business, mainly to supplement my income as I take a "sabbatical from big kid life" (a post on this to come soon!) Anyways, some of the things I have been making include bows, jewelry, wreaths, tutus... Basically a wide variety of things!

Special orders, customization and bulk rates are available on most of the items! Below are just a few things I have done recently, but more example of items can be found on "The Rusty Pistols" Facebook page for anyone interested in ordering! Just message me via Facebook or email! 

Thank you!

High Five for Friday

I havent participated in a "High Five for Friday" blog event in a while, but I decided what they hay and start again this week! Although, my weeks have been a lot less exciting since I graduated, moved home and haven't yet to get a job ... but, don't worry ... I will post plenty of pictures of my dog (since I spend more time with her than anyone these days! haha)

1. My best friend got married last weekend and I was the photographer for her beautiful wedding, so I spent the first part of my week editing photos of the wedding! Below is Lin and I after the wedding!

2. I don't get the opportunity to leave western Grady County very often, but this week I made a trip to Norman... which included shopping trips to Old Navy, Hobby Lobby, Michael's and of course Ulta. I had a 50% off coupon to Old Navy which made my newest fall sweater purchase only $7.50. Win.

3. It has been raining here for about an hour, which we have been needing! Praise the Lord!

4. One of my oldest friend is having a baby and her baby shower happens to be this weekend and I am oh so excited to see her and other old friends! (I will be posting pictures to my instagram account: brenna_davis)

5. I, along with millions of others, downloaded the new iOS7 this week. I don't know how I feel about it just yet. It is like getting  whole new phone, but with a little familiarity! I must say though ... I love the new colors it has brought to life!

Hope you all had a wonderful week!

My Hair Game

Like most girls, I have tried and tried and tried to grow out my hair... a few times I actually succeeded and a few times I failed ... miserably.

Last year, I made a commitment to grow out my hair and vowed to only cut it after I graduated with my Master's degree ... well, May (2013) came and went and I decided to keep my hair. Annnnnd now, I have decided that I made it this far I might as well keep going so I can donate it to a non-profit that can use it to make wigs.

My hair has been highlighted, dyed and damaged in any way imaginable ... so I found this non-profit organization that accepts hair that has been chemically treated ... as long as it is healthy they accept it.  Children With Hair Loss is an organization that gives hair replacement options to children diagnosed with diseases and families who may not be able to afford wigs for their children.

Soooo ... encouraged by Sports Illustrated's recent exposition of my beloved OSU Cowboys, I have decided to do a five part series on my hair, entailed "My Hair Game." This exposé will uncover the truths behind my hair growth including the "drugs" I took (meaning vitamins) , the money the products took and will ultimately finish with the "fallout" section (which in this scenario will relate to the actual hair cut when I decide its time!)

Stay tuned for the first of this five part series to be published soon. By the end of my series, I hope to have encouraged you to grow your hair out too for children with cancer. It is simple and easy to do and is something that can completely change a child's outlook on the world.

And, be sure to "like" Children With Hair Loss" on Facebook and follow "CHWL_org" on twitter.
