Every year my son asks, "Mom, what are you gonna be this year?" And my answer is usually, "a hagard Mom!" I usually get "the face". But, this year I wised up and made it easy on myself and had a better answer for the little man. I found these cute masks at JoAnn's, of course. Super-cheap, under $2.00 each, I think. They came "ready to paint". And, naturally I added a little glitter - to mine. (I promised my husband I wouldn't glitter his. After all, Frankenstein isn't too scary when all glittery.) I wrapped the handle with some fabric left over from the Halloween shirt re-do and "whoo hoo"! I also whipped up the little "Boo" piece. Cute, cute, and cute.
And, I just couldn't stand my boring old stapler (and had nothing better to do - huh?), so I tricked out my stapler! Yes, a little spray paint, fabric, trim, and E6000 will do the trick and quick! I say, why not - go nuts with it. Then I got "the look" from my daughter. "What-evvv-ah".
Remember me mentioning being organized? Well, I also get asked, "how do you keep everything so neat?" - a lot. It's because I'm a freak for being tidy! I work, work, work and then, before I stagger off to bed in the wee hourse of the morning, I clean it all up again! So here are the "before" and "after's". It's scary, so prepare yourself. Appalling, I know.
Hey, I warned you! I hope you all enjoy Halloween and wish you the best of "Trick or Treating" weather, too!
