This week has been crazy. Our party is tomorrow and I still have so much to do! There never seems to be enough time to get everything done, but I'll not be defeated! Last night I was up late creating the 'Best Costume' awards. I must say, I think they turned out rather well.
I found these fantastic cardboard skull masks and had to have them. I sprayed them white and then shaded them with gray paint. Taking a cue from my genius Mother, I covered the surface with Mica Flakes. Have you heard of this? It's used on vintage Christmas village houses and ornaments and the like. It's like big, flake glitter and it gave the skulls the perfect touch! I found this cute little box at 'Planted Earth' in Orem. If you have not been there yet, GO. It's fantastic. I need to go back and stock up!
A little ribbon and voila! Best Costume Award! Not going to lie...I wish I didn't have to give them away.
The weather has been so ideal and I have been taking so many pictures of the fall leaves! It's just so beautiful right now. Today is especially fallish...it's all cloudy and a bit windy out. Perfect! I will be posting more pics tomorrow of my house all bedecked and spooked out ready for the party. Cody and I have a long list of things to get done before then - including making our costumes. Yeah, no big deal. I'm sure mine will be held together with glue and a bribe.
