Change your Hairdresser

Change your hairdresser, my advice as a grandmother to my 17 year old self
I found this photo of me taken circa 1958 with my hair in a very tight perm. Oh dear how I hated that perm when it was first done, it needed several washes and quite a few weeks for it to settle down to anything like acceptable. I was such a timid person and afraid of offending the hairdresser so couldn't tell her how much I loathed that style, she was of the old school and didn't know how to style for my generation and I desperately wanted to change and go elsewhere, what a dilemma.


This week's prompt for Dolly's 52in10 challenge was to scrap some advice that you would love to give your younger self. I was really struggling with that as I know that any advice I gave would have probably been accepted and worked on and then the person I am today would not be the same. When I found this photo I knew it was the perfect answer to my quandary. So here is the layout.

Change your Hairdresser





I found this quote and thought it very appropriate



I am thankful for the ability that God has given me to be creative, artistic; whether with paper and pen or here on the computer I can take a blank canvas and fill it with my designs my thoughts my own creations

Oh, this is wonderful, Mary! Very good advice if you were unhappy with the hairdresser, though I rather like the picture of the girl with curly hair.

Super advice!! I could have told my 19 year old self that, too!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
