Finished the Halloween Costumes
Every year I go through the same cycle. I always got beautifully done handmade costumes when I was a kid (I had to cover them up with a snowsuit ... but that's a separate rant). I want my children to have the same quality of costumes that I did.
I'm not impressed with the costumes in the stores. They're flimsy and, other than the princess costumes, badly done. So that means I make my kids' costumes every year.
And every year we begin with a cool idea.
Then I start sewing and hot-glue gunning.
Then I start worrying that I won't have enough time to get everything done.
Then I feel like a failure because my skills don't match what I wanted to do.
Then I pull it all together and the kids seem happy with the results.
And I tell myself that next year, I'll make things simpler. Until next year arrives and I start all over again.
