Happy Friday + Happy Halloween!

Happy Friday everyone AND a happy Halloween!  I've got a couple parties to go to this weekend (woot!), one with friends & one with the fellas over at the Traveling Photo Booth Co. which is sure to be a blast.   Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I'm also really excited to be back in a house and able to have trick-or-treaters again.   The Sunday night plan is basically to carve pumpkins and watch whatever Halloween marathon is on TV while recovering from the parties and handing out treats to all the neighborhood kids.   Have a great weekend everyone!

Product Preview: The Stache Bash Party Pack!

These will be available for purchase soon on my website and in my Etsy shop!  It's the Stache Bash Party Pack!  It's a set of six handmade moustaches on a stick that make great photography props and party favors!  Best of all 50% of the proceeds will be donated to the Movember Foundation to help fight mens cancers.  In case you're unfamiliar, Movember (the month formally known as November) is a world-wide charity event held during November each year.

At the start of Movember guys register with a clean shaven face. The Movember participants known as Mo-Bros then have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their Mo (slang for moustache) and along the way raise awareness and funds for men's health issues - specifically prostate and testicular cancer.  You can pledge money just like a walk-a-thon.  My husband and I are on the committee for Minneapolis's Foam Comber Team, he's a Mo-Bro and I'm a Mo-Sistah, and we are helping host this years big Movember Bash at the end on November (date to be announced) which will be a really fun event at The Stub & Herb with live music, great beer, a silent auction, & a "Best 'Stache" contest!   In the mean time if you'd like to donate you can do so right here!   Your donation supports the great work of the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG.

Weekend Accomplishment

When we moved into our new place I was so excited to have a large room to be my dedicated office and work studio!  But duty called and I had to make it functional as quickly as possible, neglecting the decor project I had been dreaming about for so long.  Well this weekend I actually made some headway in the studio!  I sewed the turquoise and orange drapes myself and am so amazed at how they transformed the room that now I find myself looking at every other bare window in the house.   The transformation is not finished yet but it's a vast improvement!   The room still lacks artwork and I still have the whole lighting issue to deal with; I'm in constant search of my perfect wall sconces and (dare I dream?) a chandelier.  But until then I'm still quite please with the weekend transformation from scary office to pretty studio!

My signature colors are turquoise and orange of course!
