What's On My Mind...

I Have Orange Hair

It's true and it's my own fault.  Yesterday I thought I'd spice up my hair by coloring it with henna I bought in a box from our local herb shop.  It's an all-natural product so I figured it would render more "natural" looking results.  Holy Henna!  I look like a pumpkin.  

 

This is not the first time I've taken matters into my own hands only to find that a professional would have been the best way to go.  My DIY spirit/impatient manners spun me a tale of "just get 'er done...it will be fine!"  Aye yi yi!  

Thank goodness my customers reach me by phone at Rentec Direct (an unknown benefit when I decided to work in a web-based property management industry!)  And thank goodness my customers know to turn to a professional support team when they need help rather than buy it "in a box".   

 

Although this is not an April Fool's joke ... I did this to myself in March... I'd love to hear how your DIY spunk played a joke on you.   And pictures sure do make it extra fun!
