Happy Halloween

Here are the pics of the finished products as promised.

I think they turned out pretty darn cute. I sewed 18 Trick or Treat bags total, but that's not all; I also sewed my costume. It's a little bit bigger than I wanted, but it was fun to wear. :-)
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all...


Someday my prince will come...

Here are some of my tater tots all dressed up and adorable.

I'm getting ready to go hand out Halloween candy and go to a big kids party, and Snow White just will not do... I'm not anything sexy, but I am really scared of my costume. Inspired by some of the toys in my classroom, here is a prop I threw together. Any guesses?




Eeeeek! A waitress!

I sewed so much this week, I even bought another sewing machine. But it will totally be worth it... Sew stay tuned.

Happy Halloween everyone!
Be safe!

I've been getting ready for Halloween with much fanfare. Last night I watched It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown as I sewed Trick or Treat bags for my little Tater Tots (that's what I call my students).
Is this a metaphor for my life?

Over and over, Charlie Brown trusts Lucy, only to be duped again as she pulls the ball away in delight... Hmmm... sounds familiar.

Sew, back to my project. Yesterday was a huge day, I finally bought my embosser! I sewed little drawstring bags and then stamped their names on them with the letter set of stamps from this post. Then my two's stamped spiders, kitties, ghosts and pumpkins to their heart's content. They look pretty cute! I'll have to post a pic of the completed project later today.

Check out the stamps to the right. This is a great way to recycle old marker tops. One of the teachers hot glued the tops right on the foam stamps, making them easier to use for little fingers. What a great idea!

I voted yesterday. Have you?

Feeling proud of myself, I felt I deserved a treat. Baskin Robbins has $1 scoop of the day and today was Oreo cookies and Cream.


I also treated myself to this book, which I've had my eye on for quite sometime.

Hello, cake decorating classes!

Look at what my 3 year olds did!

So cute!

If I have the time, I'd like to make something with this cotton fabric that I found on line:

Matryoshka Skirt

I've been living, working, wearing jeans more often... But, generally things are V E R Y good!
We are learning about Russia at our preschool, and I can't get enough of Matryoshka designs and patterns, which led me to www.madewithlovebyhannah.com

I'm in love!

So cute!

Just look! How pretty and delicious!
