I have a cute story from just the other day.

My husband said to me "do you know where and when I go that gray and red striped sweater in our closet?"

I said "yes, I bought it for you at Old Navy along with your other ones"

He didn't remember that but is very excited to use it for his 'Where's Waldo" costume this year!

Congrats to The Lawlor's and thanks for the comment. Good luck with the Where's Waldo costume. You just need to email me your address so I can ship this to you. Just click on the email button for my email address.

To all you other awesome friends, I will have another giveaway in November I hope. I just need to think of something to make.

If you didn't win and would still like a pumpkin you can request a custom order in my etsy shop.

Pumpkin Giveaway!!

I absolutely love Halloween. I just love dressing up, and having fun. There are so many fun ideas out there. This year I have added an awesome witch, these pumpkins, a wreath, and some other little handmade goods to my decor. I will post a picture of my witch soon, because it did turn out pretty awesome.

My memories of Halloween as a child are very different than things are for kids now. At least in big cities. When I was little we went door to door with a pillow case to fill up with tons of goodies. No trunk or treating existed then. It snowed quite often on Halloween, or at least it was usually freezing.

Now, I live in a place that is hot and humid most nights. I still wonder why they sell those heavy fuzzy costumes in a place like this. The poor kid would roast to death. Oh, and carved pumpkins don't do well here either. They go moldy the next day. I think when I was little they just froze solid, so they were good until February. Please don't keep your decorations out past Halloween! It is still fun, and I still look forward to the spooky events that come with Halloween.

Keep scrolling for the giveaway.

Gymnastic Leotard

What do you do when you need a leotard and all the ones at the gymnastic stores are super expensive.

Well, you make your own of course.

I could have done this a lot cheaper than I actually ended up spending. I had to do it twice because the first time I did not get the right fabric, and it would not stretch enough to go on. Then I went to High Fashion Fabrics and it made all the difference getting a 4 way stretch fabric. This one here if made right the first time ended up costing me only $15. The cheapest one I found at the store was $37 and went all the way up to $90. I like the cheaper version.

I think it turned out really cute, and now that I know exactly what fabric to use it will be much better for the next one. I love the look of the flower, however, it might be better to use a more flat one like an appliqued poppy or something instead. I think this would get in the way when on the bars if she were a little older.

Now, if I ever make another one, I will try and take pictures to make a tutorial. However, I don't know when and if it will happen, but just in case I do I will add a tutorial for it on this blog.
