Halloween Pics and Boutique Weekend Update

Pirate K and his friend - a truly scary girl.
Thank you Aunt Maria for this darling Candy Corn Dress or this girly would have been wearing who-knows-what.

My wedding dress on the Princess. She's 10. Yeah, I was that skinny.


We were absolutely rolling laughing 'til the tears were running down our cheeks at this Sumo outfit. I think we laughed too much, because he chickened out on this one and opted for a more macho outfit of his BDU's (Camoflage Uniform from JROTC). He looks even more gargantuan next to Tiny Girl.


And the only one I actually had time to sew for this year - Luke Skywalker.

This weekend, besides the Halloween fun, I had another boutique. I stayed up until 3 am finishing Luke Skywalker's Jedi costume on Thursday, then the next night, I stayed up ALL night sewing and painting my display stands. I made some gorgeous new bags, painted a lemonade set, and made some more earrings! My sister Maria and I spent a fun morning visiting with shoppers who didn't spend and a couple who did. I sold some earrings and bags, and she sold some beads. Plus, we had a great time together and gave out lots of cards - hopefully that will generate some more business.


One of the best parts of the weekend, was that I received some GOOD MAIL completely out of the blue! My sweet friend Missy sent me these darling handmade tags for my boutique items! I completely LOVE them! They were perfect and so thoughtful. She hand stamped and chalked each of them, then hung them on the gold chords too! Missy, you made me so happy! AND notice how well the picture goes with my displays...

All the kids' costumes looked awesome. The candy corn girl couldn't be more precious and the sumo wrestler couldn't be funnier! What a shame he didn't dare go out in it. However, I don't blame him though!

I hope you generate lots & lots of business! How could you not with those gorgeous tags. :)

oh my gosh our dresses are similar. My 10 year old can fit into my dress too. At 10 she weighs what I weighed when I was 19! let's not even go what my current weight is! My 14 yr. old daughter is too broad for the dress. i love the costumes, especially the candy corn.

That sumo costume is the BOMB!! Where did you get that??? I laughed so hard and he should have worn it because no one would ever forget that!!! Courage young ones, be silly, be strange, celebrate your uniqueness, walk to the beat of your African drummer, be the sumo!!! (that's going to be my new motto)

You are very welcome. Honestly, seeing your displays is what inspired me to do the tags. As soon as I saw your model I thought about my stamp set. Glad you put them to good use! You inspire me daily!!
