We’ve had a bit of a moth infestation over her at the Banister house. Good thing it’s so cute – as we just might have to keep her.
Believe it or not, most things I do for the blog are in real time. Aside from projects for magazines, collaborations, etc. I do things right along with you. When it’s spring, I create in the spring. When it’s fall – I create for fall in the fall. I’d like to say it’s because we’re really present and mindful (and hey we do strive for that) but a lot of times it just means I’m living life and without a team (I run things solo – so whenever I say “we” I’m referring to my family – as they are part of this family biz thing) and getting ahead seems just so darn art. I also like to be inspired by what is actually the season around me. Which sometimes means that the ONLY costume I make for 2018 (the Better Homes ones I technically made in late 2017) ends up being created on the actual day of Halloween.
I sent Amelia to school in her
So like all good creatives, I listened and obeyed the muse and made this moth costume while Milla was at morning Kinder. And thank you once again
We added a fur collar and a headband with fluffy moth antennae source from the weedy fields. I sort of love the flapper vibe about it all in the end. Miss M loved the costume. But when it came time for tricks and treats she chose the kitty fairy costume so I put this one on myself (minus the princess dress obviously). Which was lots of fun as I haven’t dressed up myself in years. Jon and I took the kids around and all in all it was great Halloween 2018. Pretty pleased I listened to the muse (even though it meant the day was MUCH more hectic than it had to have been. Why do I do this to myself? Probably because it proved to also be so much more creative and personally fulfilling too. And I had to give birth to a moth.)
I hope you are all had a safe, fun and delightful Halloween! Until last minute next year!
