Winner's

I was a little slow at getting this drawing done--- I wasn't really feeling it. I kind of feel a little blah about Girly Do's right now. I love doing it and I have so many idea's in my head, but I just feel like the love isn't there anymore. So I have some thinking to do--- maybe I will just do my hair do's on my family blog for those who are readers and stop this one--- maybe I am just finished.

Not a cry fest--- don't worry about that--- I just am going to school full time, have two kids in school and a baby with milk allergies, sleep apnea and needing tonsils out. If I can throw something on the chopping block I would think it would be Girly Do's if we are done--- let me know. I still love Girly Do's and it is a nice relaxing way to spend my time, but if you aren't feeling it then... who knows.

As for the winners of these flowers:

For the one with the white head band we had number 37:

♥ Again cute!!! I'm blogging as we speak or type or whatever! :)


Congratulations! Hook me up with your address and I will get these in the mail by the end of the week.

Beans has been needing a change in her hair style and has been asking me all kinds of ways we could change it--- We finally agreed on one--- tune in later this week to see what we end up doing. Unless (of course) we decide we are done here.

  2. I hope you don't stop.... I have copied so many of your style! You and I have the same type of style and I have a hard time finding new styles to do on my children. I hope you will find what is best for you..

  3. Oh man Jenn. Please don't kill the site. I know how much stuff you've got going on right now - but just let the site go dormant - don't delete it. Don't combine it. Just let it be. Just think of all those little girls who won't ever see your styles in the future if you get rid of it. I know you may not care right now & are soooo busy but it's not going to hurt anything if you just leave it be. Good luck making your decision. YOu know I love you girl. I love the new look of your site too - I go away for a few days and see what happens? You change things up! You're amazingly talented GF. HUGS!

  4. I just found your blog recently and love it! I hope you won't delete it. I know how chaotic life can get (I have 5 kids, 4 of which are 8 and younger). Don't pressure yourself so much, maybe just post when the mood strikes, even if it's just once a month or even once a season! Hope you can find a good balance. :)

  5. I really hope you don't delete this site either. My daughter and I love to come here and pick out a new style a few times a week. You are so very talented, and you are appreciated and loved my many!!!

  6. Please don't kill the site!! I never comment (sorry!) but I have learned SO VERY much from you and my daughter's hair gets complimented often because of it.

  7. I just found your blog and I want to say two things:
    1. YOU are a hair magician!
    2. PLEASE DON'T STOP THIS BLOG!!!!!!!!! there are those of us who are just waking up to the possibilities of doing our daughter's hair in more than just a ponytail so we NEED YOU! In the very least, please leave the blog up! =0)BUT, if you ENJOY it, and it's a hobby for you to blog (provides relaxation) and you're only thinking about quitting because of your readers, then PLEASE reconsider! Just because we are quiet doesn't mean we aren't watching. =0)

    THANKS!

  10. Oh, I hope not! I just discovered your blog! I have 2 girls with LONG hair and need quick and easy, but don't look so "quick and easy" ideas for them! One has thick hair and the other has thinner hair - fun!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I am another cyber stalker... sorry I never leave a comment, nut please dont quit! My girl's hair is just starting to get long enough! I really do hope you stick around. I know having a family takes all of our time, but we need someway to connect with other moms, and it looks like this is one of your ways.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I've been using your blog for awhile now I and LOVE all the hairdo's you post! You are so talented and come up with the neatest ideas! I get so many compliments on my daughter's hair because of your hairdo's! Sorry I've never commented before but I really appreciated you taking the time out of your day to post your hairdo's and ideas for the benefit of people you don't even know!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Jenn, please don't stop posting. I too am guilty of not leaving comments but my daughter and I look at your styles all the time!! Whenever we get stuck, we know where to look!! I would miss your new styles very much!! Thank you for sharing with us and I really hope you'll keep posting!!
    PS - LOVE the update to your page. It looks GREAT!!! You can't stop posting NOW!!! ;)

    Good luck making your decision!

  14. I wouldn't delete the whole blog- I just wouldn't add new stuff to it- sorry about that. I know a lot of girls love to choose out their hair do's from here and I wouldn't want to take that away. Sorry- it would still be in the cyber world, just nothing new to add. Sorry I didn't clarify that.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I just recently discovered your blog about a week ago. I will be very sad if you decide to stop. I've got so many new ideas for my little girl here. I still have many to try. I know how it is to be busy with children and a baby- I hope that if you stop, you will at least keep the blog up so we can still get ideas you have already posted. Good luck making your decision.

  16. I am glad you won't be deleting it :-)
    Life is life, take a break and come back when you can. Things will find its rithm soon enough.
    hang in there, we all are :-)

  17. Congrats to the winners!

    And, you would be missed. Stay!

  18. I love your blog! You have the cutest hairstyles! I am always coming to your blog if I want something extra special. :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. ok, if you do stop (or take a break) I totally understand! Life gets crazy sometimes. I will totally miss you though. PLEASE let us know what you are doing with Beans hair before you call it quits (if you do)!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I totally understand you taking a break, but I LOVE your site and have been sending lots of people over to look at it since we always get comments on my daughters cute hair dos. I appreciate the time and effort you put into doing it for us!

    ReplyDelete
  21. You can't stop...my sweet girl's hair just won't be the same without you! ):

    ReplyDelete
  22. Aw, please don't stop. My little girls at work would be very sad if I ran out of ideas for their hair. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I would completely understand if you felt the need to stop posting, but I sincerely hope it would only be for a season! I love your blog, my 3 girls really enjoy seeing what fun stuff I find to do to their hair from here. It's not long enough for all the styles yet, so they have a lot to look forward to as it grows. As another commenter said, even if you only update once in awhile, or take a nice long break for awhile without posting at all, whatever you need to keep your health (and whatever sanity we moms have =P). I do hope you don't decide to delete the blog, though.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Are you kidding me? Please don't stop this blog. We love it way too much! Maybe instead of quitting it, just post less often. You have awesome ideas! Life is busy, I hear ya.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love this site! I just found it about a month ago and it is one of my favorites! You have great ideas and your daughter is adorable! I hope you will keep it up!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I am a cyber stalker as well. I don't leave comments much because it leaves my hubby's name and I usually only have a few minutes to look and then be done. I love your site, I check it constantly. If you do decide to quit, please leave the site up so that we can have access to it. My little girl isn't quite old enough to have all of the wonderful hair do's done on her yet. She is almost 2 and I am so excited for when she is older to try some of the fabulous ideas on her. Thank you for the time that you spend on doing this blog and for the all the cute do's that you have.

  27. My cousin's daughters hair was always AWESOME. She finally gave me the secret and I've come here and now I have the secret. If you leave I will just be a mom of a kid with normal hair...not awesome...not a secret. PLEASE don't make me be that mom.

  28. Please don't stop! You have given me so many ideas for my little girls hair - I always get lots of compliments on her hair.

    ReplyDelete
  29. You are unbelievably talented....and it's not just the hair do's girl. I have gotten many a splendid idea from your fabulous blog and your little Beans brightens up our day with her adorable smile. Thanks Jenn! We think you are wonderful.

  30. I just recently found your blog too, but I love it! I know life gets hectic, but a bunch of hair bloggers are taking a bit of a hiatus right now for the holidays. Please take some time off, recharge, enjoy the holiday season with your family, but please (please, please, please) don't stop sharing your awesome hair ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Aw Jenn, You know I've been there before. I say, just post when you have the time and desire. A once in awhile post is fine. Good luck in deciding what you want to do. I know it's hard to fit everything in. Love ya.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I TOTALLY dig this site!!

    Love,
    Sadie

    ReplyDelete
  33. Are you kidding me??? NO, PLEASE DON'T!!!

    Send me some of your homework - I'll do it and send it back! Perfect arrangement!!! (Then you'll have a little bit more time!!!)

    Maybe you can cut back on sleep or something??? :) (totally joking on that one!) :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I too hope you keep going...or at the very least, keep the blog active. I LOVE your work! My daughter is only 16 months and doesn't have very much hair...but I follow your blog and can't wait for the day I can do more than just a little clip (and now a tiny side pony). :) Thanks for sharing what you do. I hope you'll keep it up as you're able...I think we'd all be happy with a post just every once in awhile. Your daughter is such a great little model too! :) Thanks for all your hard work in what you've already done!
    Happy Holidays!

  35. I love the site! It's my absolute favorite of all the hair blogs I've found. I just don't comment most of the time, which is what I'm thinking you are missing? I'm sure there are a ton of people checking in all the time and like me, never taking the time to comment. Sorry! We'll do better! Promise!
    Take a break from posting for a while if you need to. My guess is after things feel more under control you'll feel the itch to start posting again.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I hope you dont stop posting your great hair Ideas.
    There are a few blogs out there that have great NEW hair ideas!!!
    Wish you tons of luck in everything your future holds but am still secretly hoping it involves hair!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ditto to what everyone else has said! Even if you don't post often, please don't delete the blog. Next year my girl turns 3 and will hopefully get enough hair in to do more styles than just those on top of her head. :) And I need ideas when she gets enough hair! Please at least leave the site up. I LOVE it!

  38. Please Please Please do not call it quitsy. I have done SO many of your hairstyles and i sure do love them. I do them everyday and they are so adorable. I know that you have family and school and i understand but maybe a once a month post would work. I hope you think this over carefully!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I totally understand if you need to get something off of your plate, I would be sad to not see any fun new ideas though. You need to make the decision that is best for you and your family, my prayers are with you.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I've been reading your blog for a long time - since back in the days when you had the hair mixed in with your family blog. We donated my dd's hair to Locks of Love at the beginning of the summer, and her hair is just now at a length that we can 'do' her hair again. I hope you stay around to give us more ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Whatever works for you. I totally understand if it is too much. I'd miss the hairstyles, but please don't feel overwhelmed-I am the oldest of several children and I know how busy life can be!

    (I just recently found your blog and greatly enjoy trying styles on my younger sister-I'm 14 and she is 5.)

  42. I LOVE your site!!! It is my favorite!!! I have done so many of your styles on my daughter. I really, really, really hope you don't quit...my daughter and I would be very sad. You have such amazing hair talent.
    Thank you for sharing. Good luck in whatever you decide.

  43. Oh noooooooooooo don't stop this blog!!!!!!!!!!

  44. NOOOOO!!!! I LOVE this blog, and come here quite often to look for idea's to my little girl's hair!! This is one of my favorite hair blogs! I'll understand if you stop, I'll just be very saddened.

  45. Ok, my last comment sounded too selfish. I'm sorry!

    But I love your site and I love your creativity. However, I know things get pretty crazy in a mom's life and I know breaks need to be taken.

    If you need it, you should do it. But I'd love any glimpse that you give us! (I have you linked to my blog so I don't miss a post!)

    Thanks for all the fabulous ideas! I totally love them. And your daughter is a gem. (as I've already commented on before!)

    Good luck with your decision. We're rooting for you here in MS! (my offer still stands to help with homework... :) )

  46. Hi! I knew you were amazing, but I had no idea you were Superwoman. You sure do have a lot going on and that must take a toll. I do hope things get better for you! I too am going to school full time and my dh just got layed off from work so life is pretty stressful around here. However, when I first got into hair blogging and I saw your ideas I never thought I could do them. Now, with a lot of practice of course mine don't turn out as good as yours but at least I can do it. You have inspired me and it has become so much fun and it has brought my dd and me so much closer. When I just have had a horrible day and I think I can't do it anymore I go to my computer and I smile. You make me smile. So, as selfish as this sounds Jenn you just can't quit because we love your styles and we need you!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Plus you can't leave us hanging, with Bean's new change. Stay with us! We love you!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I totally understand if you did decide to stop, even for a while. I love reading your blog though and enjoy the new ideas. If you do stop don't get rid of it completely, I come back more and more just for reminders of things I forget, and occassionally I find something I missed before, well actually I find things I missed before quite often. Thanks for sharing so many cute ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  49. My daughters and I have been readers of your blog for quite a while. My daughters are 6 and 4 and we have done so many cute dos from your blog and have received so many compliments. Thank you for sharing your creativity and talents. I would love to continue to try things from your blog, even if it is older hairdos that I haven't had a chance to try yet. Thank you for the opportunity you have given me to try some of your adorable dos.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Dang it, my reader didn't update and I missed that giveaway with those cute flowers! Then I pop over today to look for hairdo's for tomorrow and read you are thinking of quitting! NOOOO! Me and my girlies would be so sad if you left! Although we do understand that life gets crazy, so if you need a break, by all means take one! Just please leave the blog up for those of us who just aren't as creative as you! :o)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love your blog! I hope you decide to keep doing it!

    ReplyDelete
  52. You need to do what you need to do but please don't delete this blog. This has been a source of education and inspiration to me in the last year. I get excited when I see you've made a new posting. I know you have a lot on your plate and I wouldn't want to make it worse but please try to continue. Maybe have a break over December when life is manic and come back to it in the new year. Please don't give up!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Don't kill the site...but if you do, post your family blog for us to see...take a long break if you need :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Please Please Please don't take this away. Things change, life goes on. Take a break.A month, six months, a year from now maybe you will feel like coming back. And we will wait. Until then let us enjoy the artistry you have here. You have inspired us all and helped mothers everywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I agree with some of the other posters! Take a break, but leave the blog here... for me... er... um... us! to browse! I am here all the time looking up old hairdos I saw here and forgot how to do! LOL I LOVE your blog!!! PLEASE don't take it away! I totally understand the need for a break though. Family comes first, always! (Oh and one of your hairdos is going to be on TV tomorrow night! I used it, or my version of it, since I can never get it exactly right, for my daughter's birthday party which is going to be on Discovery Health tomorrow! Details on my blog if you want to watch!)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Life as a mom can be crazy, I totally understand that, but please leave the site up. I am a hair idiot and my daughters love having cute hair because I can copy what you do (and boy do I need the step by step pics). Thanks, and good luck, take care of your family first.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love your website! The pictures are wonderful and the tutorials are so helpful. I know how busy life gets, but know that your website is a part of my daily morning routine. You are so creative and talented. Please, don't stop!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your site and use it ALL the time! I know that life can be super busy and that sometimes something needs to give. I would hope that if you need a break that you would just slow down all that you do here, but NOT QUIT. You are too talented to quit and not share your genius w/ the rest of us who struggle! Thanks for all your GREAT and CREATIVE ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I never take the time to leave comments, but I regularly use ideas from your blog. I feel like some hair blogs are a little over-the-top with their do's, and yours is right up my ally. You're so creative and practical, and you really got my little girl looking cute! Please don't stop, but I know how crazy life is, and your family is #1, so do what you feel is best!!!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I totally understand if you need to take a break. Life does tend to through you some hoops. I do totally love your site. This is where I come to get all of my fancy do's. You are so creative with your do's.
    This is just one girls opinion...I LOVE LOVE your site and your hairdo's! But will still love you if you have to take a break.

    ReplyDelete
  61. NO WAY!!! You're one of the leaders in the hair blog world!!! (I know I'm not the only one who would say that, either.) I LOVE your blog! You are so inspiring! I can't imagine not having your blog around. I totally understand being busy, and we obviously want what's best for you and your family. Maybe you could just scale it back a little. As much as I would love to see a post from you every day, we would all totally understand if you just post occasionally if it means keeping you around. Also, I LOVE how you are always changing the look of your sight and adding new things all the time, but if that takes too much time, we're OK with just a plain old site that shows your amazing 'dos.

    Anyway, please don't go completely away. There are too many of us who need you around.

  62. Please please please do not stop this site. I have used it for at least the last year to make my 3 year olds hair look BEAUTIFUL! I can not tell you how many complements I have gotten on her hair thanks to you. (I also send people who inquire to your blog)

  63. Please don't quit your blog!!

  66. I too watch your blog but never leave a comment. I love all of your ideas, please don't stop. I love your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I can completely relate to the school and kids thing. I am working on my Master's and have time for little else, other than my kids. I would totally understand if you do quit. However, I really hope that you don't we love girly do's in this house!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'm not the best commenter either, but I LOVE your blog. I will be sad if this is what gets chopped, but understand. I hope whatever you choose works best for you.

  69. I only look at 3 hair blogs and yours is without a doubt my favorite. I understand that sometimes things need to take a break to get the rest of life back in order but please don't dissapear, just take a breath.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love your blog. You have great designs, and your explanations are very clear and good. I would really really miss it. I would not mind if you could only update once a week or so, but please keep it going.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Please don't sttop! And pleeeeeeease don't delete the site. My dd LOVES the fancy do's I learn from you!

    My ds has a gluten and dairy allergy - I can empathize.

    Take care!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I really love your blog. I would be very sad if you decided to discontinue, you have such an imagination for hair styles and your step by step instructions are perfect. please reconsider, but i do understand how life can get crazy and I am sure this is just one more thing to deal with. Selfishly, however, I want you to keep doing it forever!! or at least until I am done fixing my girls' hair! :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. I just love your site! I would hate to see you stop blogging here, but I certainly understand how sometimes you have to put some things on the back burner. I check your site so often for new ideas, and I'm always looking back thru the older posts for great hairdos for my 4 yr DD. Hopefully you can squeeze in time for a new do once in a while. Thanks so much for all of the time you spend for us cute-hair-idea-challenged people!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Please, Please, Please don't stop! We all understand that you get busy and bogged down with life, but just post when you can and don't stress about us. We'll always be here.
    I love to refer to your blog for hairstyles over and over again. I don't always remember how to do them.
    Hope life get easier for you!

    ReplyDelete
  75. There is still a ton of love for you! You can't quit! You're an inspiration! (Did you notice all the exclamation points?! That means I mean business!)

    ReplyDelete
  76. Im a lurker so generally don't comment, but I would be sad if you weren't here!

    ReplyDelete
  77. I don't ever comment, not because I don't LOVE your site, but because like you my life is CRAZY!! I LOVE your hairstyles and use them daily, I'd be soooo sad if you weren't here!! Thanks for all your hard work it is appreciated!! :)
