I hate being poor but I'm glad I taught myself to face paint. Now I can dress up even if I can't afford a costume. It doesn't help that I have such excellent taste in costumes. The one I want is a black widow spider and is $75 - yikes. Maybe I can get it after Halloween 75% off and save it for next year. I did buy the black fiber with my Michaels coupon so I could make my hair falls.
I'm also going to a party tonight. I think I will keep the hair falls but may change the paint to sexy swirls or maybe a sugar skull on half the face. I have to be at least half way pretty. Which half is the pretty half is up to the beholder or beer holder as the case may be.

Ack! I haven't been creating as much lately and now I am indecisive. So what do you think flower in the middle? On the side? Or no flower? And do you think I should add some more embellishment to the crown or leave it alone. Help me!
I miss little Rylee Boo. I closed my home daycare and now am a work outside of the home mom. I like my new job. It's nice to be out of the house and with grown ups but I miss the kiddos. Miss thing was going to preschool anyway but I do get attached. I had her since she was eight weeks old and it makes me sad that they won't even remember me. Her little baby sister was the sweetest. I do love the babies. They just don't stay little, bitty babies long enough. Still, it was time to move on. I was lucky to have a job with the great benefits of hugs and being told you are loved for seven years.
