perserving a pumpkin at halloween

After you scoop out and carve your pumpkin, dip it in a large container of bleach and water (use a 1 tsp:1 gal mix). The bleach will kill bacteria and help your pumpkin stay fresh longer. Once completely dry, (drain upside down), add 2 tablespoon of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to a quart of water. Brush this solution onto your pumpkin to keep it looking fresh for weeks.

Dhaos Costume

One of my friends has a daughter who wanted to go to the Salt Lake Comic Con as the character Dhaos.   The picture to the left is what the character looks like.  According to my oldest daughter the character is a guy that is a demon God of some sort that is trying to protect magic so his world will not die or something like that.  Yeah don't ask me I do not know at all.  I just know I had to make the costume.

Grandma's chair

Was re-arranging a room to make room for a vanity and chair from my husband's  grandmother.  The more I looked at the chair the more I knew I had to stop and re-upholster the chair.  Since it is only about a 10 min. thing to do I stopped immediately  picked fabric from my stash and did it.  The old fabric was washed out, stained,frayed looking, and not a color that is in my house any where.  I like reds and have lots of red in my house so it was easy to decide what color it would be.  Because I like reds I already have lots of fabric in the house in colors I like that work in my home.  I took off the old blue fabric and tossed it in the trash.  I saved the nails to save myself a trip to the hardware store and it is done.  I may go back and put a cording on it later it does not need it but it would look more finished to me.

Photos from actual performances...

here is just a sample of the almost 1000 photos I took during the actual performances. The stage had a hazer going so it was more visual than in the tec rehearsals.
Aboveand to the side is the play within the play at the very end.

Above, below and to the side is puck and a few of the fairies the one in orange yellow and red is playing Mustardseed my daughter.  The pink and green fairy is Peasblossom and the dark fairy is Cobwed.  It was a lot of work making these costumes but I really like the way they came out on stage.

For those that do not know i have applied for a job as a stitcher doing sewing professionally for a theater company locally.  I am hoping to get the job but since I am self trained do not know what my chances are.  I hope good as the interview went well.  Wish me luck it means i can stay a full time mom and still earn some money all while working from home.

Tec Rehearsal Mid summer night's dream

 Sneak Peak at the play Mid summer night's Dream and some of the costumes.  Some i made some are from previous years and some are made by other mom's helping with the play this year.  this was during tec rehearsal so not everyone is in full costume or hair and makeup this is just a rough idea.

  Below photo is old costumes from previous years
I did not make these last two costumes they are done my another mom entirely.  But the young man in this photo is such a nce person i wanted to include him here.
