May I present.... Katniss Everdeen

This past weekend was the annual Pumpkins in the Park. A great trick or treat adventure to support Cerebral Palsy. We have a great time every year and its safe for the kids.
So I was faced with he difficult task of turning my 7 year old into Katniss Everdeen. Well I searched for hours online with no luck. So I decided to tak matters into my own hands. I honestly used things my daughter had for clothing. The only thing I bought was a $6 bow and arrow set(which I spray painted silver), a $10 district 12 bag, and a $2 district 12 patch. About the same price as a regular costume!
She was afraid that no one would know who she was but everyone did!!
Lets not forget the amazing hairstyle from her aunt Dawn. She rocked it!! Beside her is my handsome nephew! Happy Halloween!

Bird House IPhone dock

I have been looking all over the place for interesting docks for my iPhone that won't break the bank. So searching through etsy there were some amazing ideas but all a little too pricey. Then it hit me. I have a birdhouse with a porch that has been sitting unaltered for over a year in my room. So I altered it and ended up with this beauty.
I used all Tim Holtz distress inks. Crackle paint on the fence, ink on the paper, stain on the bottom and more ink on the paper. The pearls are blue it from Basic Grey and the paper is MME lost and found. I have used this every day for the past month and have had no issues. Thanks for looking!!!
