Coming up for air...

I still have about two more weeks of the hell-schedule, but I realized that I needed to take a few days and come up for air. I was feeling waaaay too stressed and out of whack. My two short days of "vacation" from the hectic schedule have done me a world of good!

I'm feeling the creativity starting to pulse again. I had this deck of vintage playing cards and it finally dawned on me this morning what to do with them. With a little fold and some cardstock and some ribbon, they became little top-fold gift cards. I know, I know, not exactly fine art. But it was a little spark of creativity and it felt goooooooood.

Oh, and here's a picture of little Elvis in her jumpsuit. It's technically still not finished - the cape is just pinned on, and the pants need to be rehemmed so they're not highwaters. But it got us through Halloween and that's what matters for now.

I wish you could see the back of the cape and the little blue inserts in the pants leg. We're going to dress her up again in a few weeks and take some more pictures. Scrapbook fodder.

OMG!!! Livvie's photo is hilarious! You definitely need to shoot her from all angles for posterity. Didn't realize you were lining the cape with the star fabric. It is FABULOUS!
