Good evening and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
Once again, it's been more days than I'd like since my last blog post - this isn't due to the usual procrastination, for once!
I've been super busy with various projects......mainly the shop - listing loads of new vintage goodies. I've also been preparing for the big event which is Halloween: Getting the girls' costumes made and ready for their party........then working on mine, which is fun because I've recently gotten into stamp block carving and printing.......I found an old vintage skirt which made a fabulous cape and then acquired a bunch of old mismatched net curtains to make a collar; Gav and I argued over the size of the hat......haha - which we made from cardboard and covered in brown vintage tweedy fabric - using, might I add - very old carpet adhesive I'd been hoarding in the back of the kitchen cupboard - I knew it would serve it's purpose one day!!
Then I was ill all over the weekend into the beginning of this week - so I literally spent days in and out of bed and now I've a horrible cough and feel completely run down.......but enough whining though - worse things happen at sea they say - ARRRRRRR :)
So obviously, with a new costume comes the increasing need for a pose-y photoshoot. Luckily I had Gav at hand to be my makeshift photographer for a while, well at least until he got bored anyway.........yay - massively cheesey pictures!
I found my inspiration through Alison Goldfrapp - can you tell?
So I'm now heading to the big city tonight to celebrate the big event - happy days :)
ps. I hate my new page layout, buttons picture - everything! I'm changing it at the first available moment - what was I thinking?!
