Lets see since my last post, by the way sorry soooo long between posts, I took the boys and their friend to Haunted World, made and put together costumes for halloween for the kids and tried to recoop my home after our house guests left. It's a work in progress but I am slowly getting my house back to normal.
For Halloween I found a ladybug costume for Myrna, found all the items Sam needed for his costume (he's going to be a character from Dead Rising (video game)), Ruth wanted to be an owl so I had to make her costume and Aaron wanted to be an assassin from Assassins Creed (video game) so I had to make his robe and still need to find the black pants and shirt to complete his outfit.
In regards to their costumes, I made the patterns and sewed them up and actually think they turned out pretty good considering the only thing I really make are doll clothes and dolls and have never done anything on this scale before. They are not perfect but the kids don't seem to mind that the hems are not all strait or that my sewing skills are lacking precision. I think they love them and I think all they are going to remember is that I made their costume just for them, at least that's what I hope they remember.

|Ruth is going to be an owl so I added feathers to her dress|
|and made her hat from an old sweater. Myrna wanted one too so I made her one to match big sis's|
|Aaron wanted to be an assassin from Assassins Creed but with black robes - I made the robe and belt - now to get him black pants and shirt and he'll be all ready.|
I have been working on trying to drag myself out of another depression bout. This one hit harder I think because we had guests and I really didn't have my own get away space for a month. I have put my photography business on hold again and although I am crafting dolls, I probably won't do anything big this year in regards to craft fairs/booths or much with my etsy shop. I have been trying to just focus on the kids and hubby and drag my sorry butt up out of the dark hole I seem to be in.
