I was reading a blog a few days ago that mentioned a place where you could create your own little self-inking stamp. Not being able to stand the curiosity, i went and had a looksie for myself. I came up with this little gem:

wouldn't this be the coolest thing ever to document your scrapbook pages?
I'm really considering buying it. With everything said and done, it's just shy of $19.00 minus shipping and handling. Maybe it's just because it has my name on it or maybe because i just love to spend, but it just seems like so professional, doesn't it? But, like i have anything to be professional about anyways. I've always said that i do my scrapbooking for myself and nobody else... i totally stick by that. But don't you just love the little plate in the middle where you can put the date or something? i just LOVE it!

On another note... Did i mention that i cut my hair? Yup, i did. And when i say "i cut my hair..." i mean... "I" really did cut my hair. Like, as in me getting out the hair clippers, throwing on the longest foot in the kit (which so happened to be a 1" foot), start shaving my hair by starting in the middle of my head, get what i can by myself and then having DarRell finish the job. Really, it's not as bad as it sounds. No, i'm not crazy, and i didn't do a Britney Spears off-the-deep-end hair cut. I just seriously needed a trim. I've done it before. Why didn't i go and have it professionally done? Well... my hair has been super short most my life. I HATE to go get my hair cut, so when i do get around to getting a haircut, it's usually long. I just don't ever know how i want cut and it usually turns out blah, and i hate paying for something that just turns out "Blah". So when i do go in and get it professionally cut, i tell them i want it SHORT. Every time, they have refused to cut it as short as i want it. And it's not like i'm cutting it unreasonably short. What i want is something managable and something that looks good on me. But, i guess that since i come in with long hair and i want it all chopped off they are scared that i won't be happy with it or that if i'm unhappy with it, i'll sue them or something. Ya.... WHATEVER! So now, instead of doing it that way... i do it my way... and honestly, it doesn't look bad at all. It takes a few days to get used to but i like it.

Here, judge for yourself.
Let me know what you think.
Too short?
Does it look like i did my own butcher job?
here is one for comparision:
DarRell finially says he prefers the short hair over the long hair expecailly when it's REALLY long. He says that long hair just doesn't fit me.

Jo I LOVE your hair! I know what you meant about never getting anyone to cut it short enough...I've had my hair all lengths and when I go in with it loooong and want a big change they never do it!!

Love the stamp, too...oh, and you have one of my fave songs on your blog!
