GLAM GLAM Geisha...

I've wanted to try a different TAKE on a traditional Kimono for quite some time...this was the result

There.  I quite like how it turned out actually...
And Reagi had a fabulous time pretending she was a japanese princess slash NINJA...(not sure why she felt like it was appropriate attire for karate moves...but there you go)

I always feel like I should offer a little space with all the "blooper" pictures from the photo shoot--they can actually make me laugh out loud on occasion.  hmm...I think I'll have to start doing that:)

Cree, my sweet friend over on THIS IS BOUTIQUE even awarded me the listing of the day...thank you my dear!  If you haven't visited her site you should head on over...quite fabulous!

CLOWN costume listing

Hurray! Fall equals Halloween...equals costume season! I'm not sure why I love making costumes so much, must have something to do with having a REASON to make something totally different and just plain fun....

I had FUN with this little baby....I felt like I had OVERLOADED it with "stuff" but then I stood back to get the full effect when taking pictures and I decided ..." can never have too much stuff on a costume"!

Yes...costumes are fun...I shall never tire of them

You can visit the auction for CLOWN CUTIE here if you would like...lots more pics over there!'s only been SEVEN months...what are you complaining about?

That title is for you Kass:)

Yes...I realize it's been awhile---I have been BUSY. I know the rest of you think you are busy and still manage to post to your fabulous blogs/maintain you fabulous lives/raise your fabulous children....but alas, I am NOT super-woman and I never claimed to be.

We moved. We practically killed ourselves getting our house ready to sell (since in this market a home has to be ABOVE and BEYOND perfect to even have a chance) painting/installing floors/tiling/yardwork-----yeah....we were BUSY. Then we MOVED--which in and of itself is awful--I know what I'm talking about, we've moved 14 times in our 15 years of marriage, and I pretty much NEVER want to see a moving box again...

I've been trying to unpack...get kids in school...start piano/violin/dance husband adjust to new job/schedule/life...set up my sewing room...keep up with custom orders....LOTS of family has visited (and don't take that the wrong way my dear family--we have LOVED being close enough to have you all come) then EVERYONE got the flu---sigh----yeah...BUSY fall...BUSY YEAR for that matter.

But...HERE we are in Idaho...and it's fabulous! I love being back here--I really do. It feels like home. I love that it is so close to Yellowstone Park--you can literally just run over there for the day...

and it's favorite time of year

It's good to be back.
