Should I, or Shouldn't I?

So every year the local Officers' Wives' Club puts on a craft show. It's pretty popular and a lot of fun. A couple years ago two of my friends and me had a booth featuring girly accessories for infant/toddlers. I've been creating a lot of upcycled goodies lately, a hodgepodge of accessories and home decor made out of "junk" and I'd love to have a booth. However, my schedule is still crazy. I have a lot of idea for things to make, just haven't put in the energy to make them yet. I really love the things I'm making, and I think others would too; but am I ready for another big commitment?

So, do I take the plunge, or not?

I need to send my my registration ASAP since the spots are almost full. I'm leaning towards yes, there is just that little voice inside me that is second guessing....

In other news, I can't believe Halloween is only two weeks away! It seems like yesterday we were celebrating Christmas. I've known what Aliyah would be since the day after Halloween last year. Disney Store has awesome costumes, but I just can't spend full price (near $50 for some) on something that will be worn for a few hours. So I hit up the clearance sales, most of the costumes are half price.

I found a lovely little Alice in Wonderland costume last year for about $15. Considering Aliyah is blond-haired and blue-eyed it goes perfectly. I'll just add a black headband, white tights, and black shoes and she is good to go!

Best part about it? I get to be the Cheshire Cat! I still need to do a search for my costume elements (purple ears and tail, etc.) but I know I'll have fun with it. I just love Halloween, you get to dress up and go a little crazy, and you can actually be complimented for being bizarre. Plus, I think it's fun to tap into that darkness that is inside each of us, if only for a little while.

I was Googling (is that a word?) for Cheshire Cat ideas earlier and came across these really awesome illustrations that I thought I'd leave you with:

Artist Unkown

By Vanessa Boynton (check out her whole AIW series, it's fantastically edgy and sexy!)

Until Next Time,


  1. You should totally do it. You may think you'll be too busy to really be committed, but once you sign up you'll have a big motivation. Life is all about experiences!

  2. I'm there with ya. I'd love to do the craft fair, simply because it was a lot of fun. But financially, I pretty much know it wouldn't be worth it, and like you, I don't think I have enough time to invest in making the stuff to sell. *sigh* Maybe next year.

  3. I could see you as a Cheshire cat! Can't wait to see the pix! Oh and that idea of a Mama-camping trip with Yoga...yes please.


I love to hear thoughts from family and friends, new and old. Thanks for reading my posts!
