I haven’t shown you much of my apartment. Primarily…because it’s a disaster zone almost 24-7. But I’m OK showing you glimpses of the clean parts once in awhile! My daughter kept telling me she wanted Halloween decorations up. I don’t normally decorate for Halloween and didn’t have much in the way of typical Halloween decor. Then one day, I was on Facebook, and a post came up from one of my Friend’s Leslie Nash whom I like to call the Master Crafter. She had posted this artwork that she had designed and it was so funny to me! Running a business and raising a small child…I definitely feel like I’m living in an insane asylum many days! I immediately contacted her and wanted to know how I could get my own poster and also how she went about making the embroidery hoop prints. The best part is that she has this print in her ETSY shop so if you’d like one customized for your own family just contact her.
The embroidery hoops were also such a cute idea. I’ve never used this technique before but the image is actually printed right onto the fabric. I won’t go into too much detail but I will share with you the sources and directions for this project if you’d like to try it yourself.
So here are the results after I used Leslie’s Artwork, made my own hoops and added a few other items including a photo of my daughter on her first Halloween!
And speaking of my daughter, do you think she was happy with our Halloween decor…of course not! 4 years olds have such a mind of their own. I asked her what she was envisioning and she said “you know…the stickers.” Come to find out she wanted the Halloween decals you stick on the windows =) So off Mommy went to Target to hunt down some decor for my Bean to set up her own decorations. I think she did a pretty great job!
