Who's a brat?

I am! After pouting all weekend and whining to you all last night about a silly thing as trivial as a bad haircut, I felt really stupid!


I was definitely in a funk and my sketches last night are proof.


Fat girl with bad hair covered up with even worse scarf :)



Started as a girl with a cap but I turned it into my Illustration Friday piece. I don't think I'll post it over there because complete strangers might pop in here and see my recent rants. Embarrassing!

And since CHOP was the word for the day (in my mind anyway), I ordered the QVC Special value! Ninja Food Prep CHOPPER!

This, I am excited about!! Have you seen the infomercial? QVC had this for $53.12 and included 2 pitchers and 2 small containers so it was an awesome deal! Margaritas anyone?




I'm in a much better place today. I used goop and got my hair to spike a little so it looks a little funky......like it's meant to be cool or something. There are so many problems in the world and people suffering and I know MILLIONS would love to only complain about a bad haircut but have far worse troubles. I totally get it and I was a brat. I apologize. But.............

**Curse alert**
I KICKED MY OWN ASS and I'm a better person today :)

Have a super week!

Darla, no need to kick your own ass. Don't apologize for what you write, this is your blog and it should be about your life and art. I would rather read real stuff from real people rather than some sugar coated 'everything is happy' crap. And most women have been there with the bad haircut, I too have cried when someone destroyed my hair with the worst color job ever!
Now for your sketches, I rather like them! the best art comes from your experiences so I think you should post your 'frozen' for Illustration Friday. :-D

P.s. I like the girls hair in the first picture-she looks like she is feeling a little huffy!!

Darla you really make me smile and laugh when I come visit you. I agree with 'pinkglitterfae' this is your blog and it's all about you so you should feel free to rant about whatever is bothering you and be happy when you feel happy!! That's why I like coming to visit so much I don't feel like i'm floating around in cyberspace when I come see you I feel like I've really visited!!! Glad you are feeling better though! :0)

Sweet Darla, I'm so glad you feel better today! You are such a treasure! But I totaly agree with Betty, you don't need to apologize! When you feel bad you are more than entitled to complain! Right? Right! :)
Now, about your new sketches, I don't see anything wrong with them, I think they are WONDERFUL!!! I love them, I really do!!!
Lots of love and big smiles your way,
Sanda xx

No need to to apologize, a bad hair cut is the WORST! Ugh. Glad you're feeling better though. I loved your watercolor grapes. You are much more skilled with that medium than I am!

You had every reason to complain. When I get a bad haircut I am so pissed off I can barely talk to my hairdresser. har har

Anyway, all better now.

Love the picture of frozen you should totally post it.

Your work is amazing.

Annette Q said...

Oh Darla!
Your situation is totally understandable! I've had a bit of phobia of hairdressers ever since I was a little girl, (because they kind of made my hair into a huge palm tree) which has then resulted in me being VERY unadventurous with my hair, even now!
I love that you post about the good and the not so good, like the others have said. Just makes me want to visit you more.
Glad youre feeling better too :-)

All My Yesterdays said...

Haven't checked blogs for a few days..my bad. Sorry about the haircut. But look what you created! And it'll grow back...you may even decide you like it anyway! Keep painting, you're great!!

Serena said...

No need to apologise at all, Darla.....I've shed many tears over a bad hair-cut or style. Rant away ANY time you want to!

It's funny how you turned that bad experience around into some gorgeous sketches. Well done!

I love the name of your new appliance - Ninja CHOPPER....I'll have a Margartia, thank you ~ :)
