This was the first year (in four years) that my daughter didn’t ask to be a princess. Where did her mind go next? A peacock of course! Challenge accepted. The problem: Design a costume that allows the flexibility to sit down all day in class, play freely at recess and be warm enough for night time trick-or-treating. The solution: Design tights and a body suit that allowed for another layer underneath, create a hood on the body suit for extra warmth.

Here’s a different way to decorate for the best holiday of the year; a pillow for your living room (or for your kids – mine have already claimed this one!). This is an extremely low-budget project. I made mine from stuff I already had around the house. But then again, I am a craft hoarder!

My family is obsessed with Halloween. We spend the month of September thinking of all the ways we are going to decorate, come October 1. These paper jack-o-lanterns are a fun and easy way to decorate and keep the kids busy for an hour or so!

My babies are growing like weeds. On top of them needing new back to school clothes, shoes, boots and snowsuits this year, then were in desperate need of some new pj’s.
I thought sewing up a few pairs would be the easiest thing overall, not only easier on the budget, but also easier on the mama who has to shop with kiddies for something that offers them very little excitement.
