Virtual Mediocrity!

So, after my recent brush with the law, (whew, glad I caught it before, um, anyone else!), I discovered a little somethin' 'bout myself. I once thought I was a clever, witty, verbally creative person...but, boy, this virtual world sure is humbling!

When I thought of the original address (is it URL? I'm still new to this jargon...) for my blog, I thought, "mymamalogue...isn't that creative? A cute play on words?" Turns out, unbeknownst to me, that someone beat me to the punch, and trademarked it! Holy smokes, my heart was pounding as I imagined legal fees, trials, losing my home, my car, spending the rest of my life in prison calmly began my search for a new address.

Then, as I was searching for more creative names to use for my URL (did I get it right?), I found that everything was taken. Everything. I'd think I'd come up with the most clever, original phrase, play on words, and, yup, you got it...taken. Bum-mer. And that's how I ended up with fivecrookedhalos...cute, appropriate, fun (kinda like me?)

It gets worse, this mediocrity of mine. So, I was bloghopping the other day, reading posts and their owners profiles, when I came across one profile that was nearly verbatim to mine...(insert tears, oh, woe is me, tantrums). Really, am I that unoriginal?! What a blow to my ego! But, wait...perhaps I should look at this differently. Maybe she and I are of the "great minds think alike" variety? Do you think, possibly? I should have left her a comment, but I got outta there so fast, I don't even remember where I was!

So here I sit, trying to accept my new found not so specialness. I feel like my tiara's a little tarnished, my gown is ripped and my coach has turned into a pumpkin. Oh woe is me.

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!
