Do you have any special seasonal items in your shop?
Right now I have some Halloween themed cloth diapers in the shop, with new items added almost daily.
What is your favorite thing about Autumn?
Do I have to list just one?!
I love wearing sweaters, the cool mornings, the way the sun shines differently, the changing leaves, pumpkin patches, the excitement for the upcoming holidays, the fall themed art projects my kids bring home from school, the fact that I can make pumpkin pie and it won’t seem out of season. I love it all.
What are you dressing up as for Halloween? How about your kids (if you have them)?
For myself, I haven’t yet decided. This year I was actually considering just dressing up with make-up. ( No not just make-up-- clothes too!) I’ve seen some amazing make-up artists create animals and even doll characters just by using make-up creatively like face-paint. I think that’s fascinating! But my kids start planning for Halloween months in advance. We will have one cheerleader, and one super hero. My oldest, who will be 10 soon, is still undecided but his choices have included a Halo character, Pokemon character, or Transformer.
Do you decorate for Autumn/Halloween? How?
Sometimes I do, but not overly so. We might do a fall themed wreath on the door. This year I have a new mantel, so I’m excited to try out some of the ideas that I have seen floating around on Pintrest.
What was your most epic Halloween costume?
Two years ago I dressed up as Mother Teresa. I was nervous walking around, but EVERYONE knew who I was and was very respectful. It was wonderful. My point was that super heroes come in all shapes and sizes, and people seemed to appreciate that.
What is your favorite thing about Halloween?
I like seeing all the creative costumes people come up with, and coming up with great ones myself. I’m all about the home-made, hand-made costumes! Growing up, my mom always made us kids’ costumes and they were always fabulous. I aspire to making costumes that great for my own kids. It always seems to be a challenge because things seem to be so hectic during this season, but somehow it always seems to work out!
What is your favorite Halloween candy?
I am a sucker for Candy Corn.
What about Autumn/Halloween inspires you in your crafty business?
I am naturally a people pleaser, so I like to ask around and see what ideas people have and then try to come up with something fun. As soon as people start make suggestions my creative side starts to dream up all these fabulous ideas, and that’s when I get to work!
Cloth diapers are so cute! I didn't know how adorable or convenient they could be when I had my son so I had to use disposables. What about you.....
Did you cloth diaper? What do you think about all the cool new patterns and prints they have now for diapers?
