Professor Trelawney Costume on a Budget

full costume

And a happy, happy Halloween!

In my house, we LOVE Halloween.  Our big annual Halloween party isn't until this weekend, but with Halloween falling on a Thursday this year, we have to make do with having abbreviated fun on a weeknight so that we can wake up in the morning and go back to work an school.

Last week a co-worker suggested that a number of teachers dress up as Hogwarts professors and other Harry Potter characters.  After much thought and some discussion, I decided last minute to go as Professor Sybill Trelawney, the divination teacher at Hogwarts.  Of course, I didn't make this decision until 3 pm the night before, so I had to scramble to get my costume together in a short amount of time.

Four Essentials for my Fall Wardrobe

So I've been a long time gone...

I find myself one of those people whose craftiness follows a natural ebb and flow.  There are months when I can't seem to find the time to craft, shop, and blog fast enough.  And then there are times when the mood just doesn't strike me.  It's been like that for a while.  But I can feel that creative spark again, and I plan to blog more often as we move into the wonderful late part of the year.

But first, I have to share a few great finds I got at the CHKD Thrift Store that opened not too long ago. Please forgive the photo quality (and the poses)!  My son and I were in a goofy mood that day.
