1.) I have alot of fabric, zippers, and other notions so I made some cosmetics bags. Been holding onto my sewing inventory for a while and have decided that I need to just sew and see what I come up with. I can't sew a garment from scratch but I can do alterations and bags. I really want to buy more fabric but it won't make sense because I'm already hoarding.

2.) I went to a high school alumni get together. It was a wine and cheese party. I wish I had more pics but I had a great time and met a few new people.

3.) Did my Mom's hair. Wash, deep condition, twist, and cornrow.
4.) Attended a tincture making class at Third Root Community Health Center in Brooklyn. This class was an intro to a more extensive Herbal Education Program. It was 2 hours long but I was 1 hour late and missed the salve making portion. I made a nettle tincture by putting some dried nettle in my container then pouring enough vodka to cover the herbs. It is to be left for 2 to 3 weeks and shaken everyday. I learned that there are different to ways to make tinctures but for some reason I thought there was only one way. Different herbalists have their own methods.

|This was made on 1/28/2012. It's super green, stains, and tastes nasty.|
And that was my weekend. Atleast I can account for it and say that I actually did something productive. Let's see what next weekend has in store.
