Crafty Monday: Maiden Braids and Cinnamon Buns

For crafty Monday today I decided to play around with my hair. I used the instructions found here for maiden braids styling. Mine isn't as good as the style pictured there, but I didn't have anyone to help me style mine and had two kids running around at my feet while I did it. And it held up for a couple of hours before I had a chance to take photos. Not bad! :D

Putting the remaining hair at the back up into a messy bun was the recommendation. But I can't get my hair to stay pinned in a messy bun. It's way too heavy. And leaving it down - the other option - won't work when running after a bunch of jam eaters all day. I'd end up sweating and getting my hair pulled and caught in various tiny fingers all day. So I just clipped it in a strong butterfly clip to keep it up and out of the way for baking!

Kinda covers up the grays that are poking out of my part too. Bonus!

(Don't you love Logan the ham in the background? )

I have no idea why my hair looks so greasy ... ahem... shiny ... in these pics. Probably because I was slaving in a hot kitchen making cinnamon buns this morning!

Don't these look nummy? Go on over to Elliven Studio's Blog and nab the recipe. :) They aren't really very hard to make, but you don't have to tell anyone that. I slaved and slaved... I mean really... look at this greasy hair hahaha.
