spooky, scary

mike and i hosted a costume party on saturday for halloween, our favorite holiday. we dressed up as frankenstein and bride of frankenstein, and it was a big hit! we also carved pumpkins to go with our costumes for a little teaser as our guests walked up the steps.

the reason this counts as a post on creation nation is that i made my costume, and i made mike’s pec suit! i bought a white fitted sheet for $3 at the thrift shop and made the dress. for mike’s bulky pecs and shoulders, i used an old flannel pajama top and sewed little pockets on the inside that i then stuffed and sewed closed. it was all just kind of random sew-as-i-go without any pattern or anything, but i was really pleased with how both turned out. and glad to be getting some use out of my sewing machine!

About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
