A Wreath

A few years ago I had made a simple wreath for myself and my mother-in-law asked if I could do one for her. I spaced her asking and she spaced asking so I was off the hook for a bit. Right? So this year moving and all, I noticed how much crafting stuff I have. In an effort to use as much of it as possible before the next move sometime in the future when the hubby finishes school I decided to make this for her for the Thanksgiving festivities. The leaves and cattails I got from the dollar store. The ribbon, flowers, 14" grapevine wreath and berry picks came from my favoritest store in the whole world Hobby Lobby.

Beauty... and well, Beauty

This is my costume this year for Halloween, I wanted to go as Belle. This is the first year that we didn't coordinate. When I get a picture of my husband's costume I will post it too, but for now here's mine. 

The gather on the shawl dropped right before this picture but I didn't notice it until after the picture was already taken. One of the other girls at work came dressed like Snow White. We didn't plan on having a Disney princess theme, it just kind of happened so we wanted to get a picture. My dress is made complete out of a yellow sheet set I found on Ebay.  (Solid yellow sheets aren't as popular as you might think). The skirt took both the flat sheet and the fitted sheet and the shawl is made from one of the pillowcases. I was pretty excited how it turned out. I found the gloves on-line (and was kind of disappointed they didn't really match the yellow of the sheets but that's hard to do when you order them from two very different places.) The wig I got at Joann's for 60% off. All-in-all it turned out pretty great. I was inspired by a pin I found on Pinterest.
