popping in to share a few photos of this bell sleeved lace dress I recently finished making. I made it from stretchy lace knit in a beautiful blush color that I purchased at the Dallas wholesale district a couple years ago. I also got some solid knit in a blush color that I intended to line the dress with..but I used part of it for a different project and then didn't have enough left to line this dress. I ended up just getting some nude knit fabric from Joann's for the lining and I'm pleased with how it turned out. Here are a few photos that my husband graciously took for me while Jensen danced around just outside the viewfinder!

pumpkin patch in Scott, AR. The weather was perfect and we had such a fun day! This pumpkin patch had a lot of activities - perfect for families! There was a little animal train, hayrides, a sand pile, swings, a big slide, a petting zoo, pig racing (whaat?!), and much more! Jensen loved picking out a little pumpkin for herself and helping us choose a big one to carve as a family! TC's grandfather and aunt also came out the pumpkin patch with us! We've been so busy lately! Our church trunk-or-treat was this evening, her daycare Halloween party is tomorrow, then she gets to come to work with me for part of the afternoon on Friday for trick-or-treating at the office! My brother and TC's parents are coming to visit this weekend as well!

Halloween is almost here! I've started a tradition of making Jensen's Halloween costume each year (her first Halloween as a pumpkin, and last year as Supergirl) This year is definitely my favorite - she is going as the Morton Salt Girl! I finished her costume a few days ago and we thought it would be a good idea to go ahead and take some photos of her in it since we're going to be pretty busy later this month. She had so much fun twirling around in the full circle skirt and carrying her little white umbrella! I used a Simplicity 1547 Project Runway pattern pieces for the sleeves, bodice, and collar but then adjusted the sleeve length, embellished with adorable trim at both the waist and sleeve and collar edges. I also added a full circle skirt instead of doing the gathered rectangular one that the pattern called for. After pairing her dress with white tights, yellow shoes, and an oatmeal container I converted to look like a Morton Salt container her costume was complete! We (well all the really good photos were taken by TC) took these photos at The Old Mill in North Little Rock! We're so excited for actual Halloween now! Jensen keeps wanting to put back on her dress and shoes! ha!
