For this year's Halloween costume, I came up with such an EASY, NO-SEW way of achieving a high impact look. The only problem was deciding how scary or sweet to make it. And boy, did we find both extremes! We finally settled on a happy medium, with this 'Corpse Bride' look, but it's up to you on which direction you'll take your little ghouls this year. I will show you the other 2 versions at the end.... but beware! The scary one is really pretty scary!! Maybe more for the grown ups. : )

 A few months ago, a friend and I met up for a day of shopping. Much to my surprise, she came bearing gifts! For no reason at all, I might add. The best surprise ever! It was a wonderful craft book. It has kept me inspired with so many great things to create with my daughters.

This was the first time I've worked with clay since I can remember, and it was so fulfilling! The feeling of using your hands to mold clay, just can't be beat. The world is your oyster with the things you can create. Plus, there are so many easy clays to work with, right out of your home. No need for a kiln.
