Happy Halloween!



Happy Halloween Everybody... I believe it was our most horrible yet! lol.

Had a very hectic day today. Between visiting and getting the house ready.. I am exhausted! I dressed up as Alice Cullen and had a total blast scaring the pants off the kiddies.

I will post some videos next. I can't get them to upload on facebook so I will do it here. lol.
What else is new here.... um, I had a sweet baby chin born last week. Just in time for my birthday. My birthday was fun and I got lots of awesome stuff. I even got a new computer! yay!
I took a few photos of a new mini dragon and a few miniature bears last week.. I just need a couple hours to sit and upload photos! lol. I promise it will be soon :)
Hope you all had a safe and Happy Halloween!!

Thanksgiving or Christmas?

So we already have winter here..... I am not pleased as my Dahlia bulbs are still under the ground so now I have to go dig them up in the snow... AND I can't put out my huge Halloween display outside because the snow will ruin my props. I am just hoping we get a little heat wave and it melts! lol.

I've taken a few days off, well not off work as that has been pretty steady... but some days off from running around like a chicken with no head. I have been mentally and physically exhausted from trying to do everything. The shows totally burned me out and I remember about 8 years ago when I took a break from them.... I now remember why. When life gets so busy that you don't have time to sew... trying to get ready for 2 shows in 2 months is not the best plan. You can't work 24/7 without being burned out... well I can't anyway :) lol.

The funny thing is after taking a week off I want to sew again! lol. Unfortunately my house looks like a bomb hit it. Today I will be cleaning it, digging up my bulbs and spending some time with the chins.



Yesterday my brother and his g/f went to see Zombie Land, it was an awesome movie! I laughed harder than I have laughed in a long time. I can't wait till it comes out on DVD. :)

Speaking of DVD's, the long awaited Trick 'R Treat movie was finally released to DVD on Tuesday. Why this movie did not get theatrical release is beyond me. It was FANTASTIC! Everything a horror movie SHOULD be. Without being so shocking or so horrible that you don't want to look... or having it bother you for days, like most of the new "horror" movies do to me now. Trick 'R Treat was funny and scary and had twists you were not expecting.. and best of all it circled around Halloween. It is an instant Halloween classic. Go buy yourself a copy.. lol.


Well time to bundle up and go dig in the dirt! lol. Hope you all have a nice Thanksgiving!

Hugs,

Melanie
