I know it's been almost a MONTH since my last post, shame on me!! Well, don't really. I blame my lack of contribution on my soon-to-come baby. :) (Apparently, you can be blamed while in the womb)
Just wanted those dedicated readers of this blog (are there any? lol) to know I am still alive.

I have a few Christmas ideas up my sleeve and I hope I'm able to get them up soon!!

Here's an awesome/easy Halloweeny craft I love:
This would be so fun to make with kids...or without!! I'm thinking of adapting it to make a mobile for the girl's room.



Congratulations blueviolet! (commenter #4) You have scored my new and improved pumpkin motif trick-or-treat bag! I will contact you for your mailing address.

The top edge has been folded over for stability and the bottom has a cardboard liner so the bag won't sag when full of candy! (score!)

Hop onto my etsy store to buy one of your own!

Thanks for everyone who entered! I loved reading all your memories. There were so many great ideas for celebrating!

(I entered only 12 comments to even the playing field because there was a duplicate commenter:)

I blame my shameful posting delay on pregnancy...what? lol. Anyhow, here is how the upcycled t-shirt shirt worked out:

I think it needs a few tweaks before it's ready, but I really adore the poofy sides on the shorts. What do you think? Do you think it needs a few more feminine touches for a girl??

I'm appliqueing (is that a word?) with my Sis-in-law next Tuesday so hopefully I will have a darling new onesie to post - most likely a girly one!! Stay tuned...
