Where are you spin pin?!

Seriously I saw ONE commercial for these babies and wanted them.....yes I know I am a serious marketing victim. At least I am aware of this. Anyway, the promise of being able to put my hair up with one little contraption that is less damaging than my usual hair tie was VERY enticing. So much so that I went out looking for this thing. I went to several Targets, 2 Walmarts, a Walgreens.....basically anywhere I go that has an isle with hair ties and bobby pins gets a once over. Several weeks later and I am still not the proud owner of this thing! Everywhere I look there are all these bobby pins and hair ties and one empty space with a little tag that says "NEW ITEM" and a blank hook where they used to be. Come on people! Get with it! Restock those babies! There's a sucker a'waitin'!

And turned it into this mini bonefolder!

These are some our teacher made....they are so pretty!

Well it's day 5 in Ames, Iowa. So far so good. I have attended a 4 day conference on photograph conservation that blew my mind. Who knew there were a million photo processes! Well now I do. Today is my first day of real work so it's nice to be surrounded by things I know about. I will keep you posted....if I have any readers left :)
