Well, I think your picture is beautiful. I love that you tie your dreads back once in awhile. Safe trip to the airport tomorrow.



The Blonde Dreads Look Great!! My 9 year old has been growing his mohawk for almost a year. Its about 2 inches wide and 7 inches long. We have trimed it a few times. His hair is really thick, we don't stand it up often, but it really is a great part of his personality. It's great to watch the changes with your dreads. Can't wait to meet the newest member of your family. Hugs and blessings, Lourin


Nice locks, nice pics, and nice job on the recent creations on your blog. I love the fact that you do the Bake it, Make it, and Take it... that is a very interesting part of your blog! Good luck with your trip!


Ohhhhh Erika, I wish I was so *scarey* and so *top heavy* ! :) You silly girl ... you are a beautiful young woman, who has such talent and obvious love, for everything & everyone that surrounds you.

I'm glad the dreads are still attached ~I like watching how they ~mature~ :)
Can't wait to see the pics of thew new "Family" member =)


I think it's a wonderful picture Erika!!! Your smiling face is such a warm welcome!!! Have fun expanding your family tomorrow!!!

Hi Erika - I have just chanced upon your blog and I am SO glad I have found you! What a beautiful face you have and what a lovely blog - your personality really shines through. Wishing you a wonderful abundant joy-filled week (life actually!)

yeah never cut ur dreads looks really cool!!!


Keep your dreads forever if you can but you may in the future might change your mind about the dreads who knows.


I realize this blog entry is over a year old, but I just wanted to let you know that you've set my mind at ease at getting dreads today! I've been researching them for about 3 months and today is the day! I've been a little nervous, being that I'm a little older (34) and a mom of 2 kids. And, like you, I have a child with special needs. Our son was born with 1/2 a heart & has had 2 open heart surgeries. I've wondered what type of reflection me having dreads might be on him, but I feel very comfortable now "meeting" you online and in similar situations. We, too, love to camp, although we do have the modern conveniences of a camper - we have to have air conditioning for our son. But still, love being outdoors and sitting by the fire, swimming in lakes and kayaking rivers. I love your dreads and am anxious to see what is going to happen over the next few months with the mess of tangles! But that is a reflection of my life in a way, might as well have the hair style to go with it! I'm so glad that I did some last research and found you and your dread journey! Love your blog and all your great handmade items.
