DJ/Radio Producer-turned-Lawyer attempts to dress like a grown-up. Sometimes I comically fail. And I occasionally post fun stuff, like music videos, book-club reviews, or photos of beauty or oddity.
FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.

My project

...started when I decided to repair a few of my hair catches. My white hair flower was coming loose from the base, and the black one lost it's clip.

Ta-da!

Glue gun to the rescue!

The pale thing in the center is a piece of plastic I put in the clip so it wouldn't get glued shut. Now I'm stuck with it (ew... no pun intended!), but no one should see that anyway.

I then went to Michael's and picked up some stuff to make more hair clips:

Then got to work:

OK, the big wad of hot glue isn't elegant, but I'm only making them for myself, so the unseen parts don't have to be pretty. I used the paperboard the fixings came on rather than plastic to keep the clip from sticking shut this time:

One of the finished products:

Each layer spins a little given a bit of movement!

I've made everything but the fake orchids. Maybe I'll get to that this weekend.
