So of course, I’m checking out Martha Stewart this morning and she has an entire spread on handmade kids costumes. They’re absolutely adorable!! I’m in love with the butterfly, lambs and woodland creatures.
Since she’s awesome, Martha includes easy plans for making the costumes featured on her site. Most can be made from everyday items you either have or can get on the cheap. We all know how much costumes can cost nowadays, so why not put a little bit of yourself into it?
I also wanted to check in over at Etsy and share a few kids costume ideas from there as well.
I personally want the Monkey Business cape so I can be Captain Monkeypants for Halloween. Happy Haunting all!

It’s almost upon us – the Holidays – a time to gather friends and family for events from Halloween to Fall Harvest and Thanksgiving on all the way through the New Year. The time to start planning these festivities is, yes, you guessed it, NOW! If you give yourself enough time to get that list started, you’ll be in good shape when it’s time to start playing hostess.

Hello there – this is a feature that I started a ways back and am just now getting back into my blogging routine. Wednesday is that day of the week where things start looking up – the end of the week is in sight! For me as a 9-5’er it signifies almost being ME TIME. It’s also a day I like to catch up on my favorite blogs (see my Blogroll in the right column) and share a few with you. And since it’s also Word-less Wednesday, I’m going to pick some image heavy blogs with pretty things for you to look at!
A new blog I found (new to me, not to the world) Design For Mankind – it’s stylish and oh so pretty. Some good inspiration could come from this blog.
Junkculture is endlessly stylish and just plain cool. Lots of great work showcased here.

Christmas is sneaking up on us so, if you’re like me, it’s time to start thinking about gifts. I highly encourage a handmade Christmas, but if you’re short on time, here are some picks for green/fair trade gifts.
Go on over to Wedge Worldwide and check out their fair trade gifts.
Here’s a few for the tea and coffee drinkers in your life.
Or head over to one of my favorite sites Gaiam and browse their extensive stock of Green & Fair Trade gifts. I especially love the “survival” items – truly useful!
Please do not forget to also check out IndieBound where you can search for local, independent retailers in your area. It’s a great site!
So that’s just a few I’ve found – there are tons more. I’ll post more in the weeks to come. Happy Shopping.
