The end is in sight........

These pictures were taken in my living room on Saturday before I embarked on a crazy endeavor....cutting & shipping 46 bolts of fabric and 16 rolls of ribbon! My family was kind enough to let me take over while I finished the job....yesterday I managed to send out about 40 packages and today between making the stuffing and other turkey day dishes, I plan to finish up my task!

Etsy Treasuries....

etsy has a feature that allows you to make a collection of 15 of your favorite items organized around a theme - these are called treasuries and they choose one of these to be the photo on the front page. It can be a bit of a challenge to make one but i was lucky enough tonight to have my timing just right!

I have recently joined a new street team on etsy - etsy treasury team and my selections for this treasury came from members of my street team.

Looks like I've caught the fever....

....for Twilight!

I gave in and bought the first 2 books today...I had read Twilight a couple of months ago but had not gotten around to getting the next one...sometimes with a good book series I can't get past the 1st or second book because I think I fear finishing them all and having nothing to look forward to....

I did this with Harry Potter - LOVEd the first one, read the second but waited on the third...the fourth was not yet out & I did not want to finish 3 with nothing waiting for me...but got in the way and I never did pick up #3....

so, the same thing started to happen with Twilight...I read the first one...compulsively, obsessively, without stopping....but could not bring myself to read #2 because it meant I was one book closer to the story I make any sense???

well...i gave in today and bought 1&2 and plan to indulge my vampire Forks fantasy this weekend...while online tonight I came across this twilight quiz...who are you???

I'm a Esme! I found out through Which Twilight Female Are You? Take the quiz and find out!

Halloween Fun!

phew....what a day yesterday was! I have been so busy sewing for my show on the 7th that I left Halloween costumes until Halloween day...maybe I was secretly hoping they would spot something at the store that they wanted to be & I could BUY them a costume instead....only Eily bit a bit on that one...opting on Thursday to be a DJ rather than a witch.

so the final sewing tally yesterday was....completed 25 tutus....made 3 pairs of knit pants for halloween costumes...2 capes..1 tunic & 1 beard!

Leo went as a viking....aaarrrghhhh!!! (or is that what a pirate says???)

and Klem...bless his heart...went as a character from one of his favorite book series..Rangers Apprentice. I loved that at 11 years old he still wanted to dress up & really got into his character. e is snuggled up on the couch in his cape as I type watching saturday morning cartoons....that alone is worth the energy put into the costumes yesterday!
