Hi everyone. Hello out there, I hope that you are all well and had a fabulous Halloween.
My apologies once again, for not being around much, but for those of you that follow my blog regularly, you will know that Andy arrived back home for good on the 24 October. He start's his new contract on Monday :-)
We have had a fabulous week and have accomplished much. We had a lot of catching up to do on some much needed sorting and things that we had put off for the past 2 years. New furniture for our bedroom, including some fabulous Ikea PAX wardrobes - which we managed to put together and we are still talking to each other LOL!
I also have not been totally idol on the crafting side, however, maybe a little bit different. Emily is the only one dressing up for Halloween this year as she is going to a party at friends. She is very much into the games Legend of Zelda, you may have to ask you kids about this one LOL! She wanted to see if I could make her a costume for her to dress up as Link.
Anyways, she was really pleased with how it turned out. I made the green tunic and the hat, we used a polar neck sweater for under the tunic, along with some cream winter leggings. Luckily had an old pair of Shannon's boot's that now fitted Emily and worked well with the outfit.
The highlight in Emily's hair is real, she had it done back in the summer :-)
Of course she had to have the Master Sword, unfortunately we ran out of time to make the Hylian Shield :-)
We made the sword out of foam board, and used acrylic paints and electrical tape for the handle. The things us crafter's will do for our kids eh!
And ready to take on the Dark Link at any time :-) Again check with your kids LOL!
I am also in the middle of sorting out my ink storage again - and Andy kindly put up some lights in the top of my storage cabinet where my inks are kept - it looks so much better and will be even better once the storage is done. Also re-purposing some old stamp blocks into inking blocks, so will show you all this when I am finished.
Thanks again for continuing to support me and my blog, for the fabulous comments and support you have shown me and the laughter and virtual hugs when I needed them most.
Will be back up to speed with you all soon and back to crafting too :-)
Thanks for stopping by.
