For years I didn’t consider myself a crafter or even very creative. Sure, I always decorated the house for holidays, did crafty projects with my kids, made my own gingerbread houses and face masks, loved to try new recipes, and shunned store-bought costumes for what I think are way better homemade creations, but a crafter? Not really. These days I’m trying to convince myself that I am indeed a crafter. And when you’re surrounded by knitters, crocheters, professional seamstresses, painters, and soft-circuit mavens, you need lots of convincing! I recently went back through photos of the kids in their Halloween costumes that I’ve made, and gosh darn it, I am a crafter (of sorts). Enjoy the photos after the jump! PS: Two of the costumes shown were store-bought, or mostly purchased at a store and then embellished with homey touches.See if you can spot them. And one of the boys is a former intern, not one of my kids, exactly.
