Wow! I have only been averaging about 1 to 2 post per week for the last month or so. That is so sad. Funny thing is that I thought when my son started school I would have SO much more free to time to craft. HAHAHAHA It has been the opposite. I haven't sewn hardly at all and I have made nothing for my etsy shop. I have barely managed to do a few projects for friends or for church.
This last weekend I did a Halloween photo shoot with some friends and friends of friends. It was lots of fun. I made a Halloween banner just to help with decorations. I also brought my halloween quilt that I made a LONG time ago. A lot of the fabric matched because it was left over from when I did the quilt. Here is a picture of my son and his friend Lillie ( who happens to be my best friend from high school's little girl )
I was planning on using the Halloween banner across my fire place but I made it SO huge that I would have to cut it in half and so far I have been way to lazy to do that. Pathetic I know. The main reason for the photo shoot was to take a picture for my friend. Her little girl is almost a year old and she is so adorable. She was looking on pinterest or somewhere and saw a picture of a baby INSIDE a pumpkin. If you have been looking on pinterest at all you have probably seen the picture. she sent me a copy and said, "Can we do this, please?" I told her as long a s she carved out the pumpkin herself I would totally do it. SO this is what we ended up with
When we first put her in it she balled! Like big crocodile tears! Then her momma started singing and all the kids started jumping up and down dancing and we got this little smile out of her. She never smiled huge but that is okay. We liked this one any ways. What a cutie pie huh?!
So there you have it. Some kind of a blog post from me. And since today is Thankful Thursdays I am going to say I am thankful for friends. My friend Lisa not only set up everything at her mom's house and bought all of the decorations for this photo of her daughter, but she then wrote a note on facebook and asked if anyone was interested in coming and paying money to get their kids picture taken! What a trooper she was! She worked hard all day too. I'm so grateful for the few of my friends who are like that and support me no matter what. Her momma raised her right. I met her sister and she was the SAME way. Kept asking me if I needed anything, threw my trash away for me, put my medicine in the refrigerator for me. It was so nice! I hope everyone who reads this can find something that they are thankful for today too!
So here's hoping I have SOMETHING crafty to show for my self soon. I am NOT making any promises thought because we are moving into our new house in about two weeks, I have one box packed. YIKES!
