Halloween Business


What a busy busy week this will be, but fun busy-ness for sure. Halloween week is always a bit chaotic in this Loopy house. NoraLeigh's birthday is Novemeber 3rd and we are throwing her a big Halloween Birthday Bash on Friday so we have lots to do to ready the house for the event. As well costumes must be made. Of course there are no store bought costumes, they all must be original and handmade, by me or my sis. NoraLeigh and her BFF are going to be twin vampires, daddy a creepy clown and I suppose I will go ahead with the creepy clown attire as well.

Yesterday I helped my sister with her annual Halloween sale down in the French Quarter, I made myself the creepy head dress above for the occasion. This is always such a fun event with a boodle of artists showing and selling their best Halloween garb. We had a beautiful day in the sun and Chris made some great sales. If you haven't gotten your Halloween costume yet be sure to check out her shop, Avantegarb .

She always has something incredibly wacky and unique just for you!

And somewhere in all this busy- ness I have to find time to make a couple of dolls and take care of business. Oh I'm not complaining really, all of this stuff is fun. Now the business of the next big holiday..Christmas, that one I may actually complain about.
