How does your hair color last so long?
Curly Girl Method. I only wash my hair with conditioner, no sulfates/silicones and wash in cold water. Otherwise I'm rocking a shower cap. You can see my transformation here. Before CG my scalp was extremely oily.
How do you not fry your hair?
I wrote up a guide on how to bleach your hair safely. It's seriously all I do.
What conditioners/products do you use?
I stock up on Sauve, White Rain or V05 which is around a buck each. I don't use any products. I'm a low maintenance poop.

All, probably! You can view my past colors via the tags below. Follow my hair journey to Purple or Red hair ♥

Loreal Hicolor (hilift) Red & Magenta, RAW- Ruby Red, SFX Pimpin Purple , Manic Panic Ultra Violet , RAW Deep Purple, Manic Panic Voodoo Blue, Manic Panic Rockabilly Blue, Punky Atlantic Blue, SFX Blue Velvet & Ion Brights Red
What eyeshadow do you wear?
I love MAC (usually samples) or inexpensive but amazing, BH Cosmetics.
Your pattern came out to be too small. Can you fix the sizing? All hats are made to fit my head circumference. That's 22". Use my pattern as a guide and make adjustments as you go.
Questions regarding my slipper pattern.
I have never said this pattern was for a beginner. That pattern gets linked everywhere and that's what others say. I have tried to come up with drawings and a better explanation but it's a trial and error situation. My feet size are a US 7 and it fits me. You have to try on the piece with your bare foot. You increase if it's larger or decrease if smaller. I don't know the exact measurements for each size foot and don't have the time to come up with separate patterns. Sorry!
Can you count your stitches and list the numbers?
At a later time, perhaps.
Do you have any free patterns?
All of my free patterns are listed here. Any patterns for sale will be listed in my Silent Daisy shop.
Do you have a pattern for your octopus, squids and Squittle's?
Here is the only octopus pattern available. We (Squittle) are not sharing or selling patterns.
Can I sell the items I make using your patterns?
It's for personal use only.
How long have you been taking pictures for?
Many years but my photography business is only one year old as of 2013!!!
What camera do you use?
Canon 7D. I also use a Fujifilm and Samsung gs3.
What lenses have you used?
18-135mm, 50mm 2.5, 50mm 1.8, 10-22mm, 85mm and 50mm 1.4
What's your favorite lens?
I love my 10-22mm for easy self portraits. Outdoor portraits with my 85mm and 50mm 1.4!
How did you afford all of your equipment?
I'm not sure what to tell you because I've been unemployed and can't offer much tips. Most of my equipment were either graduation gifts or Christmas gifts. I actually sold a few of my early lenses to get new ones (Rent first, though..)
Be patience! I didn't spend money during Summer to halfway through Fall in order to buy the 85mm and 50mm. I bought both at separate times as used from eBay and Craigslist. You just have to save up and be dedicated.
