Katya the Koshka

Sweet she has a tail. emily complained that she couldn't hold the tail like a real cat. I said "too bad kid". i spent more time on it than i wanted too.

Emily needed a cat. She adores Katya the Koshka. Glad I could swing this one. I wasn't sure but I think it is just purrrrrrrfect!

Meet Boris

So i was at the Claremont stroll on saturday when all the craft vendors jack up their prices and sell their wares on the street and saw some wonky looking stuffies(stuffed animals). they were so cute and on a weirdo level but it wasn't my first time seeing them. I looked at the price, laughed devilishy, and walked away knowing that when i got home i was gonna make my own. So I would like to introduce you to Boris- A toodletoots creation. Move over Coraline!
emily thinks he is funny

As Spooky as it gets around here.

Well I decided to do a little with some vinyl lettering and I mean little. Amanda helped me out with the lettering that i wanted so i ordered the words, BOO, EEK, and Spooky to work with. I had some old blocks from a couple of years ago that i swiped off Tamra's front porch(i asked first) and have kept them in the stride rite shoe box they were in. I didn't know what I was gonna do with them until this halloween.

I made the black rose topiary myself! major props.

For the Spooky I just copied one bloggers idea and made it my own. Good thing i kept that vintage scrapbook halloween paper too. i think they turned out cute but seriously this is the most i did this year. I am too hot and sweaty to make anything else.

Happy Halloween

I can't decide who i should be for halloween. help me pick

1.Snow white- my hair is perfect for it since i am super dark and it is the perfect length but i have to sew the costume since the cheapest one to buy is $50.

2.Lucille Ball- all i need is the wig and eyelashes. I already have the dress. but the wig is anywhere from $19.99 plus shipping to 29.99.

i could make the snow white dress for less than the wig for lucille. but it would be very time consuming and the wig shipping could cost more and take a while to get to me.

see my dihlemma??? please respond soon. i should go to joanns today and get the material if you pick snow white!

One Month ago today

Sarah started first grade. WOW! I am just blown away at how much she is changing. School is so much fun to her. She was ready for school at 6AM. It was very funny that she had to sit around for an hour and a half until it was time to walk to school. Sadly, daddy had to get to work so he missed out on her first day back to Gladstone Street School. She was lucky enough to get her same teacher and alot of her friends from kindergarten were in her class again. When asked what her favorite part of the day was, she replied " Recess!" True that, Sarah, True that.

p.s. sarah likes to use her shirt as a towel so of course it was wet and dirty before we got to school. she also dressed herself and she could care less about dressing up for the first day. so she arrived in a CTR hand me down shirt and old grey jeans with holes. lovely.
