I've decided that I have a bad memory.
I know this is quite a shock to some of you
but to my family it is well known.
The situation that has brought about this recent revelation is my lack of Halloween pictures. I am having a hard time finding any so I have decided that because everything is always so exciting on Halloween that I let the chocolate do the talking and forgot all about the camera to document the event.
As I come across more Halloween pictures I will include them here at random times of the year just in case I did take any more photos and have forgotten where they are - which I probably have.
My sweet darling is NOT a pioneer in this photo of her at the school
Halloween parade she is Emma Hale Smith. We worked hard to make the curls on her side of her head perfect. I am not a very good hairdresser.
As she has gotten older she has varied her costumes around this crown.
She is my princess even without the crown.

However I do have something to share that may be of interest. I've run across a couple of blogs with great gift ideas and I thought others might want to check them out to get some great ideas:
Chickpea Studio - My friend Juliette is very creative and posts fun projects to her blog. She has a list of tutorials down the side of her blog with fun projects. She and also writes tutorials for Berninas Sewing Republic. I've made her key wristlets and crocheted baskets. She also has a great tutorial for a fold up, take along crumb catcher to put underneath a high chair. I think I need one big enough to put under my entire dining table.
Modge Podge Rocks - Every day Amy posts a link of a project made with modge podge. This is not your Momma's Modge Podge! Who knew so many really awesome projects could be made with Modge Podge and that there are now so many types of the fabulous stuff. I remember making decopodge projects in the 70's with Precious Moments pictures but this is nothing like that! Lots of beautiful projects.
Sew, Mama, Sew - is having a month of gift ideas. Everyday there is more than one project posted with links to tutorials as well as homemade projects that are already made up so you can give homemade without the home-making. :)
Homemade by Jill - Just discovered this blog this morning and the link will take you to a very cute playhouse she made from felt for her one year old. I'm wishing I had been that creative when my kids were little! They would have LOVED this house. There is an apple tree with removeable apples, as well as a doggie door and a garden with veggies that can be picked. She has lots of other cute projects she's made with links to where she found the projects.
