Old Life vs New Life

In my old life I was pretty outgoing! (drama major). I love COSTUMES
I loved dressing up.. so Halloween & Costume parties were "My Thing'And my kids ALWAYS had home made costumes... such fun finding and creating costumes! My sister did too (JJ as the grouch below)
ok, Kieri was the one who really like my creative costume ability... didn't you?? come on tell me you did!
This one of "Mermaid and Pearl" won the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival Contest!
I still found time to make costumes for me AND for my friends!
and I had some wild friends!!!
ok I look pretty wild too... well I had been dead for years and was visiting from the 'other world'
now my life is pretty (REALLY dull) tame. I don't dress up at all... well I do wear these:
and I am contemplating making this to wear to work Friday:
AND EMILY THIS ONE'S FOR YOU!!!!!!!
AHH memories.... creative sweetness.

I always loved my costumes :) And so did aaaaallllll of my friends every Halloween/spirit-week, well any-day-of-the-week really. And that big bird costume lasted YEARS too. I remember wearing it a few times to high school functions. I really was a nerd, wasn't I? lol
