Tablecloth Play Dresses

I've always wanted to make dress up clothes for my daughters. I made an Elsa princess dress a few years ago that I enjoyed creating, but not much else since then. A few weeks ago around my youngest daughter's birthday, a lightbulb went off.  You might remember from my last post that I created birthday table displays using inexpensive party decorations, including plastic tablecloths that cost about $1. As I was picking up the latest display, I got the idea to recycle the tablecloth into a play dress! The first one I made was from the pink tablecloth in the display shown above. I felt I had to create at least one more so they wouldn't fight over one dress, but it soon escalated to a total of four dresses that I made over the following weeks. I bought more tablecloths, solely for the purpose of making dresses this time. It was fun stocking up on different colors, hehe. I drafted my own patterns to my girls' measurements, and I had fun getting creative

Frosty the Gourdman

Happy October! A couple of years ago, my sister Dani and I created a graphic novel called Frosty the Gourdman . It's a Halloween story that is both scary and sweet. Since it's launch, each October we have offered free online access to the complete story over at www.frostythegourdman.com . Head over to the site to read the comic, buy a digital or print copy of the book, and check out some other fun extras.
