  1. Oh I love the Mailman! That is so cute!!! We made Carters two years ago, he wanted to be a bowling ball! :) He loves to bowl! I love making them…so unique!

  2. I see some really good ideas for Halloween that I am going to use. I need some inspiration this year to make some good different choices for Halloween and trick or treat!

  3. Some great ideas here that I will have to save and show my kids. Hopefully they will have a favorite here

  4. These are some great ideas for Halloween costumes. I loved my home made costumes when I was a kid. They are so spendy to buy these days and then to only wear them once.

  5. These are some great costume ideas, and easy to make! I especially like the Glow in the Dark Stick Figure, the Thrifty Homemade TMNT Costume, and the Mailman costumes.
