So to make a long story short this is what I found at Goodwill that day and it would have been more but I was on a tight budget so can you imagine my loot if I didnt hold back like a real responsible adult should. I love my costume and really feeling it. Sorry for the blurry picture my husband took it when we got back from the party so my hair is a little flat already. It was alot puffier when we left. I love love love the shoes.
Here is the rundown: green shirt $7.00 it is a tank and sweater (and look at the detailed pic of the buttons arent they sweet) $3.50 each, skirt $3.50, shoe's $4.99 and my apron I made out of an old white sheet. Added my ribbong that I got from JoAnns for 97.c and a big ole red fake flower. I actually saw that darn thing in the car on the way to the party. I thought it came out pretty good considering I have not sewn since I was in Elementary school. I have been wanting to make an apron since I think they are so femenine and sexy and for my first time it is great. But watch when I get my sewing machine I am gonna rock those apron.hehehehe
The other things that you see are 4 table placemats that I love and they were only $3.09 the glass candy jar is $1.01, princess puzzle that Isabella picked out $1.00 and another shirt in the back that is totally soft and comfy you guest it $3.50. Can you believe it. And they had so many other things in there that I would have love to take home. Specially the skirts they had sooo much. I so into the vintage look rigth now and can I tell you my husband love that outfit soo much he is like "You should really dress up like that all the time! I want to see you clean and mop the floor, you know that's how they did it back then!"hahahahah He thinks he is soo funny. But seriously he loved it! I just dont think I will be cleaning in that dang outfit specially with those shoes on. Can you imagine that that's how they really were back then. I could not have live like that. Thank God I was born in this era I would have suck as a housewife!

It is for a Drug Free thing they are doing. Red to symbolize stopping drugs from being a part of their lives. So yesterday I took him to Walmart and bought those $1.99 hair spray thing. Thank God its Halloween season and they are readily available. So I just wanted to share what he looked like today! Isn't he sooo cute! My baby......hhhmp.
Can you tell by the looks in his face how happy he was going to school looking like this. I was scared it was gonna be all over his face since it is so easy to run specially wet. And it was raining like crazy. Oh well it survived somewhat even with the rainy condition. All that matters is that he got to do it and this was a first for him. He would have never let me do this before. Now its cool to have different hair color so whatever! He is growing up sooo fast. I think he got so excited with looking cool that he got a bad color today in school for talking and loosing his patience. That boy! This will have to be scrapped and kept as evidence for the future along with many thousand others waiting to be put to use. Hahahaha.

It is such a yucky day here today. It has been raining all day long, but that is ok cuz I get to do alot of work when its day's like these. I got to finish 2 LO's that I have been putting off. One is for a DT contest for A Million Memories and another is just a LO I was trying out to challenge myself.

So this is what I finished today. I figured I need to stop with the Halloween and focus on my xmas stuff. I decided to do another shadow box for the fun of it. I am still doing the other one but finished this one. I will put the tutorial @ Amillionmemories.com if you all want to learn how to make a shadow box. Although I am pretty sure if you google it you will find directions on how to do one. Anyway it's simple and made out of a single sheet of 12x12 paper that you like, paper mache box (bottom) scraps of cream cardstock for stand, 1 chipboard cut in four to make corner, 5 silver snowflakes brad (took brad in middle out), paint (cream,green,brown, red) for background and corners, 1 single cotton ball for snow affect, glitter to accentuate kids clothes and one chipboard from KI at the middle top of the box. HOpe you all like it I love making this bad boys and I will make more. I will put them all over my house when its time to decorate for xmas. I just thought I needed a little break from Halloween stuff.

This is what you will see as you walk in her room. Her bed used to be on the left wall and I moved it this way I think its more dramatic. Since she mostly plays in the TV room in the bonus room she really does not need a lot of room here. But she does have enough room on either side of the bed to do a she pleases.
This is the wall to her left. I picked up thos butterfly mirror with glass knob's to at ROSS and they were only $3.50 each. I used them to hang her growin bag collection. She has more but they are all over the place so this were still hanging from their original position so we just kept those and will add the other ones later. She loves this idea and she can see all her bag. She has also learn to use her little chair inside her closet to stand on and get her bag so she wont pull on the mirror hanger's. She is my smart girl! The cream picture frames are from Target when they were on sale for $3.00 each. Dog princess message board was given to her last xmas from my mother in law. She love's that dog she even slept next to it when she first got it thinking it was a pillow. The dog is wearing a crown with a little bling.
This is her wall to the right. The pink pillow, curtain, canopy and butterflies were all from Pier 1 kids when they were having their 75% off becuz they are closing all thier kids store. The canopy used to be $120 or $140 cant remember but I got for $20. Butterflies were originally $12 each bag and got for $3.00 I got 2 bags. That table on the bottom pic is against the wall and is from Ikea. I bought it from my cousin in Cali when we were moving back to Fort Bragg for Isaac's room. Which is now in Isabella's room. It is awesom cuz it is deep and whide and I can fit alot of her clothes. I will be painting it too but not right now. It is fine since its white.
This is what I was spray painting.... the toy bins. They used be primary colors and used Krylon pink satin color to change the color. I had forgotten about the big bins and I am not totally done painting them. I might have to buy 3 more cans of spray paint to make the color pink look better. I can still see the primary color but for the pictures sake I went ahead and put her stuff in there so you can see my vision. I was using a big all plastic bin to hold her stuff so she can just dump her toys when I tell he to clean up but I am trying to teach her how to organize her toys that should all go together instead of all mixed up. She loves it and she said I dont want to mess up my room. Yeah right! That bad boy will be mess by tonight. Specially my friend Gracie and her kids are coming here so Isabella and Trinity sure will have fun in that room.
These are the upclosed pic of the butterfly in a bag I was talking about and I just safety pin it from the back to hold on to the canopy. I think it turned out cute!

Used a skeleton from Michaels and altered it. My Diva Skeleton is for daughter Isabella and was inspired by Elsie Flannigan. But after I made it I thought about Day of the Dead and figured this would be perfect. Aha moment. So the one above is my idea to make it look like the tradional Mexican Day of the Dead skeletons. Used alot of bling from Target dollar spot, I doodled alot of the details and odds and ends rubons that dont know what to do with since they are soo small. Love how it turned out.

While everyone was riding their bikes and Daddy pushing the kids making sure they are ok, this is what I was in charged of! Usually they are so bad and bark at everyone and everything but they did really good. Even when a big pitbull started barking at them they just ignored him and kept walking. It was not long though before I hear "hey, its your turn to push I'll walk the dogs!" Great job daddy! I knew it, he gets tired and I end up pushing Isabella all the way home. The things you do for your kids. Man, those little bikes can inflict pain in the most uncomfortable places. Not to mention my back being in pain from bending to be able to push her forward. Those darn training wheels kept running over my foot and that little bone that sticks out from your ankle. And the worst part was I couldnt even get mad and when you get hurt like your natural reaction is to kick the damn thing. Lucky bike! Better be glad Isabella was still riding you or I would have kick the crap out of you is all I can think in my head. hehehe

Cannot wait to post my work here and feel free to share without hesitation. I sometimes come up with some crazy things, have so many ideas floating in my head, get all excited, talk to much about and get inspired by so many other artist that my husband cannot keep up with me. He just shruggs his shoulders, say's ok honey and smile and think I am so silly but loves to see me go crazy over something he does not understand anything about. Only when my project or object that I have been obscessing about is done does he understand or see and says. "Wow, baby that is great how do you think of things like this? I cant even draw a stick figure if it would save my life!" hehhehehe He is my biggest fan and supporter. I love him!!!
So anyway there it is my first blog. I hope I dont drive you all too crazy by my antics and plain crazyness at times. Also I will try my best to spell right since I dont really care too much becuz I want to express what I have to say and this is not school so I dont really focust on my grammar. Is that how you spell grammar? hehehhe.
