Halloween is Here!

The costumes are finished and hung with care.... lol.  Well,  Yogi Bear and BooBoo are ready to be turned loose upon the town.

Here is the breakdown for the costumes:

What was purchased:
                                   1 brown jogging suit
                                   1 pair of jogging pants
                                   1 white shirt
                                   1 package of brown dye
                                   1 red checked fabric (because I just had to have that).
                                   1 cute bear hat.

Everything else, came from things that I either already had, or found.  My sewing machine behaved itself, so all in all, this was an enjoyable process.

I hope everyone has a great Halloween!

Headbands Are Up! Costume Madness...

I was finally able to list my latest batch of headbands Friday.  We did a "photo shoot" weekend before last, on the one day out of the month when it was cloudy and freezing.  Still it is hard to beat natural light.  Thank you to Mom for helping me get the right pictures, and Dad for keeping the girls entertained during that process. 

Now, Halloween is fast approaching.  The girls are going to go as Yogi Bear and Boo Boo.  Since things are so crazy, I am going to cheat a little, okay, a lot by using sweat suits.  However, due to Feath's aversion to trying anything on, this might be the one thing that saves my sanity.  My mother in law has a perfect basket, and by some miracle, my Mom was able to find pants and Feath's shirt in brown.  No way no how for Kee's shirt, so yesterday, I drug out the 5 gal. buckets and brown dye.  I think that there might be something wrong with me, because I get so happy doing this.  I could not stop throwing things in.  I ended up with the shirt to match her pants, a 2 saved T-shirts that have been given new lives, and plenty of extra brown material to finish out the costumes.  Now if I can just put it all together.  

Stay tuned for an update.
