The Undeadest Party Ever

My sister came up with the great and grand idea of having a Crafty Costume Party. We were going to be on the road on the actual Halloween night, so we had it last Tuesday. 'twas EPIC!

Jared and I decided to be zombie bride and groom. Kate, Jared and I zombified our thrift store outfits using theatrical blood and dirt. I looked like a crazy person rubbing my white dress into the dirt in the front yard, but whatevs. the neighbors are used to my craziness. The total cost for both of our outfits was probably 20 bucks.

Kate did our makeup using only eyeshadows. She's going to cosmetology school and hates the cream makeup that people generally use for halloween costumes. She's such a good makeup lady that Jared and I accidentally scared a small girl who was in attendance at the party.

Ian, Jared's brother, was our officiant in the zombie wedding. afterwards, we celebrated our nuptials by carving pumpkins!
ON TO THE PICTURES!

This one is my favorite.


I think on the whole the party was very successful! We're already planning next year and I think I might possibly be a mad scientist!

AUTUMN FEST CRAFTY EXTRAVAGANZA!

Jess and I along with our significant others (Jared F. and Jared T. respectively) are putting up a booth at an Autumn Festival! This is the most awesome thing in the history of awesome.

We have a great spot, right at the front of the festival by the welcome booth and it's going to be epic. We're going to sell some of my jewelry, the mosaic windows I've made, yard totems, bookmarks, key chains, and we're going to have a Christmas tree full of handmade ornaments! Plus, Jess is selling some of her paintings, and she's putting out some prints of her photography and such to get more business for her photography business.

Jared and I along with my sister are going to bring our instruments and jam a little to draw attention if the festival people are cool with it.

oh my gah, so exciting!

I finished my tree mosaic the other day! It's for sale this weekend too!
