For the past several months most of the swaps I’ve been involved in have been leading up to this one day…Halloween.
Mommy and I were in charge of costumes for Bubba and Boo Boo. This year Bubba wanted to be Will from the book series “Ranger’s Apprentice”. He wanted to be it last year (and was) but didn’t have the best cape. Mommy made him one but really didn’t put forth the effort to make it into what Bubba wanted. This year was a different story I believe she nailed it with this cape and brooch closure.
Boo Boo didn’t know what he wanted to be so we recommended he go as the Mayor of Halloween from “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare before Christmas”. This is Mommy’s favorite movie and her favorite character. I sketch and create TNBC characters for her all the time so it was easy to come up with this costume for him. Mommy and I worked together and came up with this costume
and yes he does have two faces
Here are some pictures from Artsy Mama’s Sweet and Sinister swap. I was partnered with Mandy. She gave me a glittery sinister Halloween house to begin my Halloween village collection. I also got the decorated letters spelling out “BOO”, a beautiful black and white glass ball ornament, a sweet sign exclaiming “Happy Halloween”, and some yummy Fiddle Faddle. This is how I came home...my mailman placed the package so that I would see the "BOO" written on it.
I sent her a witch hat, a candy filled witch broom ala Martha Stewart, some super cute ghost socks, creamy white gourds to decorate her house, a yummy chocolate bar decorated with a vintage Halloween image,a hand painted hanger and the other items in the photo below.
I also wanted to thank the wonderful Vanessa for my Halloween postcards. They are so wonderful to see in person and I love how the envelope they were packaged in was decorated in her lovely art work as well.
Hope you all have a happy and safe Halloween!!
