haha and no, her boot was not stollen by monkeys! Her sister (dressed as a monkey for Halloween Wink ) had her own pair of boots under her costume too lol. Sadly, I did not make the monkey costume - not enough time! Oh well. They were super cute together, though. Cheesy

oh my I LOVE the BBC of P&P!  Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth - just wonderful!

So, along with that, I have a short story.

I, like Jennie, need to have something on in the background while I'm working. Whether it is music or a movie, doesn't really matter. So the other day I dropped my 5 y/o off at kindergarten and came back and asked my 2 y/o if she wanted to watch a movie while I got some Christmas sewing done and she said yes. What did she hand me? P&P. I asked her if she was sure and didn't she want to watch a cartoon and she said "No mama. I watch this." And she did. She sat down and watched the first disk! Albeit she got up a lot and played with toys, but she came back a bunch and sat on the couch with them too. My mind was boggled!

True story.

Thanks a lot guys.  Smiley
I also love that she wanted to be something out of the mainstream. Last year she was Ariel and I made that one, too, but it is a very common costue. The year before, though, she was Ponyo and I loved it! I really just love that she's not very "typical". And I love that she wants me to make her costumes Cheesy.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

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!

Thanks Aislynn! She does love it Smiley.  I would say it probably took about 40 hours start to finish  Shocked but I'm totally glad I made it. She said it's her favorite costume ever and that totally gives me warm fuzzies  Grin .
