I am a mom of older children and have noticed that the time has come when I do not have the hustle and bustle of little ones constantly around my feet and life now seems to be a bit of a let down. Well life has changed and now I have more hustle and bustle then ever. I am the Grammy Nanny to my 3 grandsons.
I was savoring the time that was mine and now have to share it with everyone all over again. The growing pains are upon me again and trying to define who I am again. The upside is that I get to cuddle little ones again! I still haven't truly learned to hug myself yet nor to be understanding to my own feelings. Did anyone notice how hard it is to be nice and understanding to yourself? That being said I hope that you will be part of my journey into yet another part of my life.

Halloween fun

I had a good time making Halloween costumes. I made an Annie dress, a race car driver suit, Bowser, and princess peach upcycle. Oh yes, I quickly put together a red riding hood outfit from my stuff and made the red cape from fleece and some fabulous print lining fabric. I also put my fairy dress together enough to wear for a short time while driving the Primary kids home in the bus. haha
My little race car driver, my grandson.
I love this pic

Used glitter dimensional paint and added the details on the bottom of the dress

Miss Tanya as red riding hood, she had a blue skirt, gathered muslin shirt and a fitted vest. Oh yes and a little basket.

me in my fairy costume. I love my wings.

the petticoat for under the fairy costume. I love it. It fells so feminine.
I am so glad that I was able to make all of the costumes. I didn't finish completely on my time line but I did get them to everyone before Halloween and before the little parties.
