RF: Candy Corn baby down!

  • I couldn't resist posting twice yesterday so that I could show you The Princess's Candy Corn Costume. It was remarkably easy to make and she really enjoys the fluffy tutu skirt. I think it's pretty clear that it's a candy corn.
  • The other post was a giveaway for Shutterfly holiday cards, go enter if you haven't already.
  • I am so far behind with sewing for the show. So of course I have a head cold. Thanks autumn, I appreciate it.
  • I haven't been on Pinterest in days. I think I'm going through withdrawal.
  • Remember I was getting my eyes checked last week? I did and they got BETTER. My glasses were making me dizzy because they were too strong!  I got new glasses, they have polka dots on them! Love!
  • I have already decided I'm not doing any laundry today. I hope no one needs any clean clothes.
  • I would really enjoy a Pumpkin Spice latte, if this town could quickly build me a Starbucks. Tho I'm probably saving a ton of money by not having one.
What I Read This Week:
  • Almost Perfect by Susan Mallery. I read it in one day. It wasn't terrific, but there is some quality that sucked me in.
  • Only Yours by Susan Mallery. See? It's been years since I've glommed onto an author like this. I can't even tell you that you HAVE to run out and read them, but I'm really enjoying them.
  • Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Just hit part two. I had to wait for my new glasses before I could really tackle the tiny print.
Other Bookish Notes:
  • I finally signed up for Net Galley. I feel like a cool kid.
  • My kids ruined a library book and my account is locked until I pay the $18. Dang it. ( Raising Your Spirited Child for the curious. I didn't get it read.)
  • Someone finally stole my mayorship at the library. I'm crazy disappointed. I can't seem to steal it back from him either!

  1. I hope you feel better so you can sew up a storm! It cracks me up that your kids ruined a book about raising spirited kids!

  2. I hope your cold is short-lived. I hate standing at the library desk admitting to lost books or fines-it makes me feel like a failure, even though it's very human to have lost a book or two.

    I loved Gabaldon's series-one of the great fiction love stories of all time, in my opinion.

    Have a spooky weekend.

  3. LOVE the candy corn costume! Such a cute idea.

  4. Cutest candy corn princess EVER!

    I find it hilariously ironic that the book your kids ruined is RAISING YOUR SPIRITED CHILD. Really sorry about the $18, though..

  5. Love The Princess' costume - great idea!
