Well I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween. To those who celebrate anyway. Now Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year. If you hadn’t already guessed by my love of costuming! As I said in my last post, Elsie was a cute little kitty for Halloween. Elsie helped me paint and glitter the mask last month. It was what inspired the whole costume. Plus I figured mask on a stick was better than trying to keep a mask on her face. I used two simplicity patterns to put together this adorable costume:
We went to all the grandparent’s houses and to Gigi’s(great-grammi’s) for trick or treatin’. We also went in Grandma’s neighborhood. She made out like a bandit and by the second to last house was saying “Twick tweat” and thanking everyone for their candy. I think she is going to like this holiday when it rolls around next year.
I have been busy with doll commissions. Yes, I make original crochet dolls. I take commissions and also sell already made ones on Etsy. I call them Whimzees. I just finished up the Morning Glory Faery for my friend who owns Mothers of Purl Yarn Shop. I’m currently working on a fireman for another friend. I also have ideas for a Knight and a Princess that I would like to do. Below is a picture of the Morning Glory Faery and the Daffodil Faery. Sorry They aren’t for sale as they have homes, but they can be ordered through my Etsy shop if you would like one of your very own.
Well tomorrow is shaping up to be a crafting day with my little girl. We have some painting projects we need to get to. And also to figure out what we are doing for Christmas Presents this year.
