I've been doing a lot of crafting lately. Well, to put it more accurately, I've been preparing myself to do a lot of crafting lately. Danny got me a sewing machine for Christmas and I took a community sewing class that was great. I can't seem to stop buying patterns and craft books from the 70s. For some reason their crafts were far superior to our crafts today. Let me know if you ever want to make anything. I have lots of sewing, knitting, crocheting patterns. I also have a book about how to make fun bedrooms for your kids. I don't have kids, but it was such a cool book. I couldn't pass it up. There's a bunkbed that has a slide coming down from it!!! And another bunkbed that doesn't have a bed on the bottom, but rather a little art center. So cool. I want them for myself.

Here is a pattern for Halloween costumes for kids. Let me know if you want to borrow it.

Here's a detail of each of the costumes
An astronaut:

An Easter Bunny:

And a Sassy Cheetah:

I can't decide which one I like best. I think I love them all...

i'm torn between the sassy cheetah and the astronaut.. the bunny is a little too "christmas story" for me.

What costume will you make for Katie this year :)

Yes, I've used to goggles before. Actually, a full sized diving mask, but same diff. It works well for chopping jalapenos for salsa too. Come over.

I've been blog stalking you from lil' Ems' blog. Blog blog blog blog! You only have to say it two or three times before it starts to sound really weird.

Anyway, I think we should have a crafting party. We could make stuff and then force other people to wear/use it. And take pictures. And have treats.
