Happy Halloween!

Here are more to top off the end of the month! BUT I will be rushing home at lunch to whip out my husbands costumes we are going to be Coke and Rum! And they will be homemade costumes so I will be posting photos tomorrow after I have them made! I decorated the outside of the house last night and just need to add more spooky things and spooky tunes!

Stay tuned!

Happy Halloween! Be safe! & Eat lots of candy!

October as a busy bee

Another busy bee.

Who says 13 credits, full time job, part time job, teenager, husband, pupper-do and sewing wasnt possible?

I guess you can say I like to stay busy as a bee, and do a very good job of that.

We are half-way thru October, which is insane! Where has summer gone? Where has fall gone?

As winter nears I get excited but sad because of how quickly time passes us, and sometimes I dont stop to enjoy the moments.

I enjoy what I do.

I enjoy my full time job.

My part time job working with the political frenzy is coming to an end. Only 12 more days and then the big boom of rush to the polls. So vote early, and just flat right vote.

And I love sewing. I love when winter nears because that means it times to bust out the fur and get fuzzy.

If I could just sew and go to school I dont know if that would be busy enough for me hence the two other jobs and all the other hats at home.

BUT enough rambling.

Heres the latest and greatest and I should have more projects to share before the end of the year!

Enjoy!

My latest and greatest project moose beaded slipper tops. Beading isnt one of my strong areas but I am hoping to get better as I continue to bead.

October is half way thru and I feel like a sewing machine! I love the holidays and making stuff for the kids so I whipped out a ton of halloween trick or treat bags, and some table runners for those festive mamas.

Halloween trick or treat creations

I had a blast making these halloween trick or treat bags for my step-children, nieces, and adopted nieces. I followed this simple two sided bag tutorial from Skip to My Lou’s website and just ran with it. I had left over Dora fabric and lined T and M’s bags, and used them for the base for e and g’s bags. The girls all loved their bags and I had so much making them. A little fabric goes a looong way.
