at least that's what i always say!
i'm sure you're thinking what kinda nut is she? rest assured the postcard won't phase my son at all. he knows i'm a little wacked LOL and he knows i love Halloween. It would be around this time of year - actually maybe mid to late August I'd start asking them what they wanted to be for Halloween. I actually miss making all those Halloween costumes. I had to be outta my mind when my son was 3 or 4 and i decided to sew my first costume. I hadn't sewn since I was 12 and I took a sewing class during the summer. And i jumped into making the most complicated costumer ever - a dinosaur. Spikes going from his head down to the end of the tale. Dinosaur gloves and shoe covers to boot. Amazing costume! I have to dig out that photo of him in it - that's another whole story in itself. But it was the beginning of many costumes to come. I have always loved Halloween and dressing up is just the best part. When i was stamping these legs (from Character Constructions - they're plain legs with the curly toed shoes - i embellished....) it made me start thinking Halloween. I thought I'll just stripe these legs up and color them in with orange. I really should have consulted my marker before I began. It didn't have the same plans as I - and promptly began to run out of ink. Figures huh? No matter. If you look closely you'll see i noted to him that it looked like my self-tanner ran out.
Anywho. Gone are the days of the Halloween costume. Fortunately my daughter is very into theater at school so we're always on the hunt for costume materials LOL. Yesterday I made a trip to the Salvation Army store just for that purpose. Unfortunately there were no orange dresses - this time the costume is for pre-Homecoming Pep Rally activities - but they've already figured out another solution to the orange dress problem (I was relieved. Aren't you?)
