I know a few were thinking they might need to call CPS until we explained he was a “black-eyed pea” This has been our “go-to”, last-minute, easy Halloween costume for the past 6 years.  A couple thrifted black t-shirts, some felt and […]

by This is Carrie on October 24, 2011

Did you catch a glimpse of the lavender dress I found in my Savers Halloween video? Well, that wasn’t the dress I ended up using for Pumpkin’s Rapunzel dress.  Of course, after the cameras were turned off, I found an even more perfect dress to refashion.
