Getting Crafty

Knitting Cupcakes
Cupcakes Take the Cake

Aren’t these the cutest?  For the past few days, I’ve been really struggling with my Halloween costume.  I couldn’t figure out how to translate tightrope walker into a recognizable costume.  Working with the materials I had already purchased, I considered other costumes, like trapeze artist or elephant rider and realized that those were even less translatable than a tightrope walker.  So I went back to being a tightrope walker, but I wasn’t happy with it.  I told a bunch of my friends what I was thinking about doing for my costume and they convinced me even more that no one would get my costume.  But then, I had a breakthrough!  I’ve decided to make several key elements for my costume and I’m going shopping for materials tomorrow.  Now I’m excited again and I hope I can bring my vision to life!  This is just what I wanted anyway, to be something interesting and to get crafty with my costume :)
