I know I know… I’ve been absent. I’m a bad, bad blogger *hangs head in shame* But I have a good excuse! Okay, the excuse is only good for me, I’ll admit that.
First, Great Western War totally snuck up on me and my husband. Seriously. One Monday night we were sitting, watching TV, totally chilling, then suddenly Max jumped up and shouted “AAAH! We have war coming up!”
Thus the panicked packing frenzy ensued.
A panicked packing frenzy that once again, didn’t include my camera. *headdesk*. At least I’m consistent!
Regardless of that, we had a wonderful time! It was full of friends, good food, amazing garb, and yes, I even managed to slip some belly dancing in there! SCORE! A good time was had by all.
But now, HALLOWEEN APPROACHES!
I have a quick blog update over at Costumed Nonsense about various Halloween projects I’m working on, including clown costumes for the nephews and the beginnings of my Persephone Halloween costume as well.
As for the rest, Well, The Chateau de Nom Nom is in full Halloween swing.
Yup, I raided the 99cent store again this year. And the Chateau de Nom Nom is now all decked out in its annual orange and black…and other various colors… in a celebration of my favorite time of the year.
Last year, the front of the Chateau wasn’t very festive. I lacked money and time. This year, I snagged a few things from the 99cent store as well as Michael’s and Big Lots to have a bit more of a “spooky” showing.
Our entry way. I love my paper chandeliers! That is indeed a Squishable Cthulhu. He sits there year round.
I am totally stoked for our upcoming Halloween Party. And this weekend is going to be a doozy.
Mr Max is indulging me (yet again) and we’re heading back to Disneyland for our four-year anniversary this weekend. We will be attending Mickey’s Halloween Party and I’ll admit it, I’m all excited about it! Also, after a day of rest from the Disney hangover, my friend Schellen and I will be running in the Run For Your Lives 5k as well. I’m both nervous as all get out for this as well as excited like a kid on Christmas eve. We have been doing 5k training for a long while now, so hopefully we stand a bit of a chance. Regardless, I am crossing that finish line alive, dead, or undead! Many photos of my humiliation to come.
And just so you know I’m not slacking, here’s some works in progress commission pieces that will be done soon:
The finished versions will be coming soon! Thanks for your patience, folks!
Next update will be full of Disney photos and pictures of me after the zombie apocalypse. Until then, Cheers!
