Six Word Saturday.....

Spending a Lazy Saturday At Home!!!
These past few weeks have been crazy.....with all the Halloween costumes. After much running around and very little sleep I have declared today to be do nothing day:) Ok well that's not entirely true...I have had to work on a couple of costumes and Halloween bags, but for the most part it has been a great lazy Saturday:)

Halloween is here......

Halloween + Costumes = One busy lady

I love Halloween.....I have been pulling all nighters to make the imagination of a child come true. There is nothing more exciting that watching a little one transform into something they never thought possible for a day.

For those of you who didn't know...I design children's clothing and accessories. For more information on that visit my DSL Kids blog. I usually keep the two blogs separate, but I love Halloween and decided to share some of what has been keeping me so busy. I would like to point out that I do have a photographer for my clothing line....and you will understand that statement when you see the difference in photos below between the ones I took and the ones she took:)

Why have I been so distant to blog land you might be asking? The answer is this: First week in October and I've already made 8 costumes and 12 Halloween bags......I have 15 costumes left to make and 24 more Halloween bags...................

By the end of October I'm exhausted....but I love every minute of it:)

So here's a sneak peek at a few of the costumes I have made so far........


Minnie Mouse 1
Pippy Longstocking

Minnie Mouse 2

Little Bo Peep
Captain Hook
Blueberry Muffin
Costumes Left to make:
Raggedy Ann
Strawberry Shortcake
Little Red Ridding Hood
Mickey Mouse
Pirate Boy
Pirate Girl
Scarecrow girl
Snow White
Black Cat
Queen of Hearts
Fall is my favorite time of year!!! Not just because of Halloween, but I love being able to wear layers;) Gotta go work on more costumes!!!
