Neat! Sweet! Petite!

My youngest daughter has a very creative imagination. At 13 years old, she came up with the idea for this Halloween costume all by herself.

Mind you... She had never seen an episode of The Addams Family before! I had to find an episode on YouTube so she could see how Cousin Itt "walks and talks!"

She was quite a hit in the neighborhood with the parents. Many stopped her and asked if they could take her picture. :) Most of the younger kids didn't quite "get it." LOL!

The costume took 6 skeins of yarn for us to make and she wore it for about 2 1/2 hours before she couldn't take the heat anymore. Literally. It was about 75 degrees outside, but under that carpet, I'm sure it felt more like 105 degrees! She did good, though! And she had a great time!

This week, I received two Halloween RAKs.
Mary Ann sent me this:

Aren't those dry embossed trick-or-treaters just adorable? She added chalk to make them pop and inside she used her Cricut to cut letters to spell "BOO." It's just too cute!! Thank you, Mary Ann!

Bonnie S. sent me this little jack-o-lantern:

I just love how she colored it! She stamped some spooky ghosts, too. Very nice, Bonnie! Thanks!

I hope you all had a great Halloween and enjoyed lots of treats and no tricks! :) We had lots of little princesses and Spidermen! We saw one "Obama" and several witches and Elmos.

Have a great weekend and thank you for visiting!
