Happy Halloween!!!!!

It's that time of year again.  Despite your age, Halloween offers something for everyone. From trick-or-treating, to haunted houses to dressing up, there is almost too much fun happening at once.  Personally I am a huge fan of dressing up, regardless of the time of year.  This year, I'm thrilled with my costume.  I transformed myself into Oprah Winfrey and was accompanied by none other than my boyfriend as Stedman.

Speaking of Oprah, am I the only one loving her lifeclass?  I think not. It is just fabulous and filling the Oprah void we were all left with after the end of her show.  Now, as simple as it may seem, Oprah pointed out something very obvious that I had missed.  She said that your calling doesn't have to be something you make money at.  "Aha! moment," as Oprah would say. For some reason, while I love sewing and knitting, I felt like I had to being successfully selling my projects on etsy for it to matter. Luckily Miss Winfrey gave me the permission I had not given myself to create for the benefit of those around me and not just for myself. So while I will continue my etsy shop for the time being, I will not be so focused on sales.  Lately I've been working on a hat and 49er dog coat. Here are the results:

  1. Your costume is funny! I dressed up as a Mexican Baille Folklorico dancer. I took lessons as a kid so I've always loved watching them perform.
