I'm so excited right now, I'm just giddy. Janae from Thoughts in Vinyl just finished the vinyl for my new hall pass, and this pass is Middle School sized. I love how Janae varied the font size so that it looks like Subway Art. I tell you, she is a Magician. I tell her what I want my vinyl to say, pick a font and a color, and she works it up that way and another way using her own expertise. Her own expertise always seems to turn out better than how I saw it in my mind.
Tell me how that happens, will you? Every single project I embark on starts with a vision, and never ends up looking anything like that vision. Some people have the gift, I guess.
If you are dying for a hall pass like this, Janae has it on her website now, for your shopping convenience. She has it in two sizes--15" x 12" or the 22" x 17" obnoxious size that I chose. Let's see you hide this pass behind your back, Kiddos. Mwah-ha-ha-ha!
Anyway, you can find the vinyl to make this most excellent hall pass by clicking here.
I rarely post pictures of myself because of my extra chinnage and my drooping eyes, but I realized that you still haven't seen my new do, and I've been wearing it for over three months now. When I first got it, I got some interesting reactions from the people in my life who supposedly love me.
Peanut Head grabbed the top of his head with both hands and violently torqued his scalp down to one side.
I did laugh.
Zoe Bug took one look and said "Your hair is weird, Mom."
Most of my students reacted positively, perhaps to spare my feelings, but one of my charges who has personality squared, gave me her opinion straight up when she saw it. She took me aside at recess, so as not to cause me further pain, and said in a whisper voice, "Mrs. Scott, I do not like your hair. It's weird."
My feelings were not hurt though. I agree, it is weird, but it's also fun and that's why I did it. In fact, I think I'm going to keep it for a spell.
Mind you, right now it's kind of screaming My Lil' Pony! but that's on account of I got my color touched up yesterday and it's always "Whoo! Rainbow Girl" like this for the first few days. Then it calms down and doesn't alarm people quite so much.
When I first got this style I alarmed myself when I stepped out of the shower and saw Rotund Draco Malfoy in my bathroom, but then I realized it was just my bangs in the mirror.
That was a close call.
