I wish I could show you some amazingly clever fabbity-fab-fab costumes that I lovingly stitched for the girls for Halloween. But I can't. This year the extent of my involvement in costumes was to get the dress-up box out of storage. Oh. Wait. I did craft Paige's crown out of some construction paper right before she left to haunt the neighborhood. But for the most part, the girls creatively crafted their own costumes out of bits and pieces salvaged from dance performances and Halloweens gone by. I think they look smashing.
I wish I could show you the glowing and grinning jack-o-lanterns we carved and set on our step to welcome trick-or-treaters big and small. But I can't. I waited until the last minute to buy pumpkins and there wasn't a pumpkin to be found in the town. How was I to know that the sub zero temperatures we got at the beginning of the month turned bunches and bunches of pumpkins to mush? A pumpkin shortage? Who'd of thought it? We had to settle for Halloween luminaries this year. They looked o.k. There's something a little bit disturbing about little candle tea lights in the bottom of paper bags, though. It seems like a no-no.
I wish I could show you the rockin'-redo projects I've been giving my creative attentions to the last few weeks. But I can't. Neither one is done. Here is a little sneak peek, though...
Goodbye for now~
