A very sweet original Halloween picture at Inside a Black Apple. I am saving it to my hard drive for next year when I plan to have an adult Halloween type party.
Check out these cute cake pops at Bakerella.
Costume help and fun decorations to make with the kids at Crafty Crow.
And a very cute online paper doll game here. Dress her in different costumes.
And make some cute spider snacks with the kids like the ones here (I think we will make some to eat while we watch It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown tomorrow night). **this one was added in an edit this morning
As for me, I'm on the mends. I managed to finish my niece's costume and get it in the mail. But oh my word!!! The angst! She is going as Princess Peach and I made the dress. A long 12 yr old size pink satin dress using this pattern. I used the blue dress version. Sewing the satin was ugh! It would have helped if I had thought to serge the edges I was gathering so it didn't shred to pieces in my hand. And the corset style belt I ended up having to iron the satin to the interfacing to keep it from moving all over the place. I do not swear, but it was tempting while sewing this thing! But I love my niece and she'll look beautiful in it. I won't mention how much candy was taken from the above picture during the process. ;) I however did tell Kalla I would not be able to make her Shortcake costume this year. She said ok mama, I'll just be Cinderella (we already have the dress). Good girl. Now hopefully she won't change her mind. :)
