My Creative Space - Tape Measure Roses

My Creative Space is turning these...


into these.


 I've just listed them all in my Felt shop (which was starting to look a little bare!).

and I have finished the korker hair accessories I started last week.


The tutorial for them is here.

I've also been rather brave and gone from this hair colour (which I've had since university)...


to this one...


My children have told me I look like I have old lady grandma hair and my other half didn't even notice. I like that I won't have to colour my hair so often and that it is closer to the colour of my daughters' hair. But then again... I'm not sure I can take much more of the "you have old lady grandma hair" taunts that the girls are finding so hilarious! Maybe I should go back to being platinum blonde. What do you think?

Pop along to Kootoyoo to see what everyone else has been up to.

Your hair looks great Sarah! I did the same thing a few years ago. You're right about not having to colour so often!!

Kelly said...

I think it looks great also. Your hair looks nice and healthy - nothing like Grandma hair! I'm still waiting for the day that I 'have' to colour my hair - at this stage I've had a couple of greys but nothing like my Mum had at my age. I have dark hair so when they do decide to appear, they're really going to stick out!

Good on you. A change is as good as a holiday (they say). I like it but will I recognise you?

I like it, it's a "calm" colour and nothing at all like a grandma, there's no blue rinse in sight :-) And those hair accessories are amazing, thanks for sharing!

Jill said...

Oh, your hair looks lovely, very soft colour and it will be so much easier on you. Like the rosettes too, they have quite an old fashioned charm.

I love the tape measure rosettes. Just gorgeous! Your new hair looks lovely - a much softer colour. And what do kids know anyway?

Bec said...

Love the tape measure roses and your hair is a perfect au-naturelle colour.

Mel said...

I like the new hair colour. It looks great. Just tell Maddy and Eloise that it is the same colour as theirs so their hair must be grandma hair also.

Kate said...

I'm about to go back to brown after being black for the last few years. I'm sure I'll get a few of the same sort of comments from my girls too. Enjoy all the extra time and money you have now that you don't have to dye it as often.

Those broaches are fantastic, love your new hair colour, suits you.

wendy said...

Love the granny hair! (So seriously un-granny-like, Sarah; sometimes the little imps just don't know what they're saying...) The rosettes are absolutely perfect...where do you find your measuring tapes?

Mary said...

love the brooches and your hair looks great. Especially because it is closer to your daughters hair. I recently cut my hair quite short and my daughter spent the day calling me Dad!

Stephanie and Carlos said...

No way!! I HAVE to try this!!

xo Steph

the roses look great ... and so does your hair. (my dh never notices anything to do with my hair ... I'm wondering whether he recognises anything about me except for my voice!).

Rosalind said...
