Or you desperately need a unique hostess gift. I've gotcha covered! This was a post-election pet project that took far too long to do, but I'm so thrilled at how they turned out.

This SUNDAY :: Laurelhurst Winter Bazaar!

If you're in the Portland area, be sure to come to Laurelhurst School for their annual Winter Bazaar this Sunday! This is one of my favorite shows, and I don't normally do school shows. There are attendees whose children have long moved on from elementary school, and they come and shop this show every year.  Their Holiday Wreath Auction is superb, and their raffle items are amazing, and all the proceeds go to benefit the Laurelhurst School PTA. Plus, Bunk Sandwiches and Ash Woodfired Pizza will be there!  Oh yeah, and more than 80 local handcrafters selling their wares, myself...

R2D2 DIY Costume

We're nearly halfway through October, and this usually means my husband (or I) are halfway through a costume build. Seriously. While I'm not going to show you the costumes for this year (they're not done yet!), I will show you last year's costume. We've worked with duct tape, fabric, cardboard, paper maché, etc. in past years.  Sometimes we make costumes for everybody, but last year there was only time and energy for one. And it was a doozy. And it was allll Rob this time. Beep Beep Boop Boop! It's R2D2! Of COURSE The Boy asked to dress as R2D2. Being...
