So Owelette was probably where I messed up the most on these costumes, but Adam’s Catboy had its problems, too. And I did get her figured out. And, I think this might be my favorite costume (and I get to wear it).

This was another project from an Asia Citro book. These yarn-wrapped sticks were in her A Little Bit of Dirt: 55+ Science and Art Activities to Reconnect Children with Nature

We collected the sticks from our nearby woods and playground.

We’re going to Disney World in September, and even though Halloween will be weeks away we’ll be going to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. This is H’s first trip to Disney, and it’ll be our first time at the Halloween festivities. So I asked her what she wanted her costume to be, and we looked at some Disney characters and shows that she loves. She immediately settled on PJ Masks, and she was adamant that she would be Gecko, I would be Owelette, and Adam would be Catboy.

I bought a big tie dye kit on sale when I was stocking up on summer craft supplies, and then I pinned some great projects on Pinterest. And one of them was this I Love to Create Tropical Twist Teepee. I knew I could sew the tent and get H to help me dye it, and then she’d have something really cool for her backyard play. And we had so much fun! I love how this turned out.

dino kit 2

I’m not even sure if I can count this as our first sewing project, but it’s our first attempt. I bought this adorable dino kit on our UK trip and thought it would be a really good place to start with Hannah and sewing.

knee1

This past Friday I had the first of my two knee surgeries, starting with my right knee. I tried roller derby a few years ago, in summer of 2013. I watched for a couple of practices and then tied on some borrowed skates and gave it a try. Gravity was not my friend, and all I did was fall down for about half a practice, banging my knees hard every time. I am not a good faller, there was no landing on my butt as directed. I am not coordinated enough to aim my falls.

squid embroidery 1

A while back I found the amazing Urban Threads on Instagram. They make super cool, irreverant, tattoo-style hand and machine embroidery designs. My in-laws gave me a great little Brother combo machine for Christmas a couple of years ago, and I’ve been learning how to embroider with it.

silk tie easter eggs 1

I saw these a few weeks ago in a Tasty/Tipsy/Totsy Facebook video. I don’t remember where the video was from, but these eggs looked amazing. There was doubt on my FB feed that these could possibly be real. When I Googled, I found several blog posts that pointed me to a 2006 episode of Martha Stewart, where she and a staffer made them. That link has all the directions. And they looked 100% real. So I decided Hannah and I would try them this year.
