April R. recently e-mailed me a picture of the burlap bubble wreath that she just finished. I think her idea to make it as a pumpkin is so very creative and fun and wanted to pass it on to you. Thanks for sharing your wreath with us April, it's so cute!
This week has been a busy one. I'm working like crazy to try to get all my painting projects done before it's too cold to open the windows for ventilation. I mentioned a while back about the table that was really giving me problems, it's finally done but I haven't been able to write a post about it yet.
This week I've been working on adding some board and batten in two rooms in my house (with my husbands help), which seemed simple enough until we decided to replace all of the baseboards in our kitchen/dining room, living room, and hall as well (to match the height of the board and batten baseboard). Because I painted the board and batten a different color than my trim (it's the same color as my kitchen cabinets that I painted last year), if I want everything to match, I'll need to paint all of the window trim and doors as well---all of this the week before Halloween! Am I crazy?! I think I might be, lol!
Two out of four of my kids have their costumes ready to go for Monday. I'm confident I can buy one of the costumes, but my daughter wants to be this little character for Halloween:
It's Sack Boy from a video game called 'Little Big Planet' one of my kids very favorite games.
Um...can we say complicated? I'm really not sure how this is going to happen, lol! How would I make it? Dye sweaters from Goodwill maybe? And how would you make that head? With my house torn apart, I'm not really in a great position to start on a sewing project, so I asked her what her second choice would be:
A princess Leia costume would be so much easier to whip up for sure (I might even be able to find one to buy), but it's not what she really wants to be.
Are you sewing costumes this Halloween for yourself or for your kids? Do your kids get to pick whatever they want to dress up as, or do you 'guide' them in their choices?
