Before and Maybe After.....
I started at the top of this bookcase this morning...Poor Clockwork Cottage... It needs love and attention.
I kept looking at it as I cleaned...Then I stopped. Grabbed a quad pad and started drawing.
Everybody in the group is used to me wearing a shirt with spiderwebs printed on it or something of the sort. Every year I tell them I don't do costumes...
What they don't know is, I used to do costumes and go all out. I just got tired of it.
This year, I found the perfect shirt for me.."I don't do costumes" is printed across the front in bold letters.
Tessie is helping me accessorize. I found a punk rocker's wig....I will probably look like a cross between Sammy Haggar and Twisted Sister in it...That doesn't matter. I'm going in zombie makeup... Complete with torn nails and scabs... That'll teach them to hassle me about costumes! Now where did I put my extra pint of blood?
Tessie helped by cutting up an old t-shirt and making a spaghetti scarf. With matching bracelet from the leftovers. I kind of like these for regular wear. Right now there are dozens of instructions on U Tube for them if you are interested. They are really fun to make and you can do it plain or with beads and other adornments. Some versions are quite nice.
OK. That's it for my break. Back to work.
See you tomorrow.
