Dyeing Day

Yes, we are still cleaning out Susan’s old house.  Mostly it’s all books now, so it should go fairly quickly and she will be all packed up.

This week we decided to take a few days off and have some fun.  We spent a day out at Ikea (Neve and Maddie are smitten) and we spent a day dyeing yarn and hair.


While they were waiting, the girls put on socks and sprayed some pledge on the floors.  Clean floors and worn-out kids is a great combination!


It took two tries to get Oona’s hair pink.

That’s the beauty of homeschool.  My kids can have crazy hair.


Susan and I worked on the colors for share yarn (they turned out GORGEOUS!) while Maddie worked on the kids’ hair.

Neve wanted to be “ginger” so we put orange highlights in.  Oona of course chose pink.

The colors are a demi-permanent, so they wash out after a few shampoos.


I have never seen Oona so patient as when she was waiting for the color to do its work.


More share color preview.  The final color is sooooo much nicer and richer than this.

After the first attempt at Oona’s hair was a total bust we had Maddie try again a few days later.  The result?  A super happy Oona who couldn’t stop jumping up and down and exclaiming her love for her hair.


It’s adorable.

She’s decided today that she has vampire hair; hence the red on her chin (it’s fake blood).

Yes, my kids are already looking forward to Halloween, and for once I am starting to feel the excitement, too, because IT’S SEPTEMBER!!!!!!!!

  1. Has Oona outgrown the Santa suit? I will never forget fence day at your house with Susan’s group! You are a first class hostess, you and your family are priceless! When she came out as Santa, it was the funniest thing ever!! I am happy to be able to read your blog and it is fun to get a glimpse of that fence in your pictures! I learned so much with Susan and at your house. Thanks for a great time (sorry this is almost a year late 😃)
