KSW’s Handmade Toddler Costumes

I’ve gotten alot of requests recently to share my personal creations here on the website, and there’s something I must confess — while I have no issue publishing all the creative things I find during my countless hours scouring the Blog World, I’m a bit camera shy when it comes to publishing my own endeavors. Nevertheless, I’ve been working up the courage for quite some time now and I guess if I have to make a personal debut … what better time then now!

These were my toddlers handmade costumes last year and they were quite a hit with my kids and the neighborhood. I made them, literally, at the last minute {at work even, shhh}. In fact, I got about halfway through with them and was called away to an important meeting {I spent the entire meeting imagining my fate as the Worst Mother Ever and my kids not having any costumes for trick-or-treating}. Fortunately for me, I happened to work with the best darned group of people in the entire Air Force {world even} and when I got back to my office – well after quitting time, I found these sitting on our conference table – THE MOST ADORABLE CARDBOARD HORSES I had ever layed eyes on. I still get teary eyed just thinking about my team of Airmen cutting templates, gluing eyes and ears, and curling ribbons together ~ all in the name of Halloween.

Now that’s a great Halloween story, don’t you think? I can make this template available if anyone should request it.

    Getting the body that you have always wanted is a
    lot easier if you’re having fun throughout the process.

    Play this until only one child and pillow are left.
    In the present time, Delhi encapsulates two very different worlds, the ‘old’ and the ‘new’.

    However it will be good to put a figurine of Squidward to
    it to give it better authenticity. Do not pack your aquarium with
    plenty of decoration that it inhibits the fish
    from swimming easily in the aquarium. Opportunities are the same
    internet bookseller that you got your publications from
    is willing to buy them back, simply visit their site and search for their buyback show.
