Where is the month going!? It's the 15th already! No way! My kids keep talking about Halloween costumes…and I can't even wrap my mind around that yet! I still giggle, chuckle about last year…did you catch this in October Scrapbooks etc???
As much as I'd like the kids to be something cohesive…characters from say, the Wizard of Oz or something like that…of course, they want to "express" themselves! How dare they!? LOL! Anyway…so far this year, we've got a wanna be 80's prom queen, a sock hop/poodle skirt girl and a "scary suit" ed boy. These are their requests….so we'll see what happens!
Back to the layout…it's totally one of my ALL TIME FAVES! Even the super duper talented (and one of my MOST favorite creative souls), Candice Carpenter, lifted my design :) What a treat!!! I'm so excited it was in the Halloween issue of the Scrapbooks etc. magazine! What a hoot! Sara was the funniest, chubbiest, most hilarious "old lady" ever! It took two bags of polyfil to stuff that huge bra and my Spanx girdle!!! LOL! Abby, a perfect little sparkly fairy and Cash…well, he wore a "scary suit." It was so fun!
In other news…I've been sewing! I'm making some handmade goodness for a special date in November when I reveal my wares. I've thought about doing an open house for the holidays…whether it's a literal thing or just an online OPEN house, I hope to bring SO MANY more ideas to life between now and then! So far I have several CUTE bags and some really fun jewelry pieces!
This weekend I'm so excited that my sister is coming to visit! YAY!!! We are going to hole up in my crafty space and CREATE!!! Jenny is a big time quilter! She's so good! I just haven't found my quilting gene yet…I know it's in there…so many crafty projects and so little time!
Okay…I know this is short and sweet…but I am so very sleepy :) Just wanted to share a little and say HELLO!!!
Have a happy and blessed Friday!
