One Tutu...finished!

So...I took a long time to complete my tutu. I just got caught up in other things (not surprising). Besides, it's not for Halloween, it's for Christmas. She loves to dress up. Anyway, at least now it's done. I even made a little wand to go with it.

Halloween Bucket!

I found this cute little utility bucket at the dollar store. I thought it was too cute all by itself, would make the perfect Halloween bucket since it was already black. Anyway, I used some scraps of felt, some seasonal ribbon, and some old Halloween fabric that I had. Here's how it turned out:

Day of Fun

Sometime last week, the girls and I had a busy day. I made some homemade playdough for Pumpkin to play with...

and then I took the girls out to the garden to pick some carrots that were due to come up. Pumpkin loves her some carrots and ranch!

Lovin Coupons

So I went to Albertsons the other, weekley ad, and list in hand and had a wonderful time. I only wanted to buy the stuff that was a really good deal. The stuff that I ended up buying is normally quite expensive (at least to my tastes), but I got a lot for a little.
I heard the Warm Delights from Betty Crocker are really good, but I feel that they are too expensive for so little, but......I GOT THEM FOR FREE!!! Yes, they are doubling coupons until Tuesday and I had two 50 cent coupons. If I bought 6 participating items, you get $3 off. Well, I bought 20 participating items and had coupons for all of them. I also got Progresso broth for FREE!!

Anyway, I spent $14 and got this: (saving a little over $30!!!!!)

Twin Tunics

I wanted to take the time to tell eveyone THANK YOU for following my blog and for your comments. I'm not to familiar with blogging, but I hope to one day inspire tons of others just as they inspire me. I appreciate all of your comments. If you have never commented, I would love to hear from you! I truly appreciate the input and all the ideas you all give me.
Anyway, I've been getting bad about not posting very much crafty stuff. But...I was working on my greatest project yet. MY OWN PATTERN!! I've never done this before. I've always understood the concept, but I always thought it would be too difficult for me. Turns's not difficult at all. I think anyone with a fair amount of sewing knowledge could do it.

I laid out my daughters' current clothes and copied sleeves and the body (including necklines) and adjusted wherever I wanted to. Here is how they turned out:
