I'm not ditching Simple Sunday...it's just been a little busy around here.
Are you all ready for Halloween?
Some of you probably are all done with the big festivities I bet. This year is probably the MOST I've ever celebrated the holiday in my whole life. We've had a couple parties already. Samantha has TWO school parties this week (one of which I am helping organize...excited to share some goodies with you this week) Then we go Trick-or-Treating on Wednesday!
My Simple advice for you this week is:
"when you can't sew....GLUE!"
I get a little sad every time I make something and a friend of mine says, "I'd love to make that, but I don't sew" I've tried to inspire many to start...but I know it's not always for everyone. I mean, it only took me 27 years to break down and teach myself how to do it.... ;)
Sooooo......for the NO SEW-ers out there...
I SAY UNTO YOU:
YOU CAN DO HANDMADE HALLOWEEN!
Our family is going as the Flintstones this year!
Oh, how I LOVE a theme! Remember when we were the Incredibles? :)
I will be posting the rest of our costumes soon....but today it's all about the NO-SEW Baby Dino.
Of course, I'm Wilma, and Randy is Fred. And the inspiration of the whole idea: Pebbles & Bam-Bam (Sam & Cash)
Finally, to wrap it all up in the cutest little purple bundle:
Georgia will be playing DINO.
Now, I happen to have many-a talented friends, and I requested my friend, Becky, to make a Dino Hat for us. Didn't she KNOCK IT OUT?!?!? You can see more of her work on her page here.
But, you wouldn't even have to go that far. Just a Purple hat with some black ties on top would do. The rest of her outfit was made without a stitch.
I purchased a purple sweatsuit. Then everything that went on it was cut out of felt and hot-glued on. You only wear a Halloween costume for a day or two....THREE, if you're lucky. So, it doesn't have to last forever. Plus, if I spent any more time then I did on it....it would feel like a waste. (in my humble opinion)
Dino got a :
Purple belly to cover up what was on the sweatshirt
Black Spots on the back and arms
All hot glued on....took me about 15 minutes from start to finish.
Simple. Simple. Simple.
I know, that hat is ridiculous! LOVE IT! In fact, I'm gonna make her a winter coat to match, so she'll get more use out of it :) LOL!
Tell me how you've simplified your life this week!
Do you have a tip or trick to make our lives easier?
Did you organize a closet? a Drawer? a Bookshelf?
Have a simple craft or recipe you want to share?
I'm lazy.....I love to hear shortcuts! ;)
