Unfortunately, my birthday itself was not the greatest day; I actually contracted the stomach flu and spent all day on the couch, nauseously watching the Harry Potter marathon, feeling sorry for myself. My husband was such a dear, running out to get ginger ale and fetching me ice even though he had finals coming up. Anyway, I feel a little better now, but no sewing got done. I ran into another roadblock with my art dress, and even though I've figured out how to get around it, I'm starting to get a little sick of this dress.
Vixen Vintage's simple but amazing tutorial on how to do rag curls, and let me tell you, it is a minor miracle. I tried it a couple time before, but the first time I brushed out the curls and ended up with clown hair. The second time I tried it, the widths of hair I used were too thick and my hair didn't dry, even overnight! The third time was the charm, though, and I ended up with the most fantastic all-day curls with very little fussing and no product whatsoever.

I followed Solanah's directions for the curling part, minus the product. After sleeping on the curls, I didn't brush it out, just finger-combed it. And that was it. I love how much more lively my hair looked, instead of just flat and limp and straight and blah. I told my husband at the end of the day that I though people with curly hair have more fun. Curly-haired people, is this true?
