Ok, I promise I've not been slacking!! I've just been psychotically busy crafting for other imprtant stuff! I had to make my 5/yo older daughter's Halloween costume (Jane in the city dress) and my husbands! He was Superman. I posted my daughter's in the competition, though. But my husband's turned out fantastic and I plan to put a post up on it soon.
And "now" (read "should have done months ago") gotten started on our church's Christmas theme. We are doing a 1940's town center!!!! It's going to be awesome and totally free for everyone! We are doing up the central parking lot (trust me, that is ENORMOUS!) to look just like a town center from the 1940's, fully equiped with coffee shop/hot chocolate shop, bakery, fire pit, chestnuts roasting, family activities, holiday light show, live music, plays, carolers - literally the works! I am helping with the costuming and making all of the muffs for the ladies. So, that's about 20 to 30 of them. They are quick to make up, but with so many, it takes quite a while. Thankfully, I have until December 3rd to get them all done. I plan on having them done next week, though, because of all of the crafting I want to do for my friends and family starting with the ones out of state (so I can send as soon as possible).
So, with that long-winded story, I bid you all good night and happy crafting!
