Easy Peasy Skirt and Halloween Treat

I finished my daughter's new skirt last weekend - it's the lazy days skirt from oliver + s ...... don't you just love the name! Easy peasy, so cute and the pattern is free-oh yeah, doesn't get much better than that!!

I've seen this pattern before-and I think it's in my favorites-but Melissa at One Crafty Momma re-introduced me to it.....many thanks! She had a sew along that I joined but am very late for. To my credit-I did finish the skirt last weekend, just forgot to take pictures of my daughter wearing it....... but that still makes me late and makes me sound like one of my girls making excuses for something they didn't do :)

I'll definitely be making more of these for the girls.

Happy Almost Halloween! Our costumes are ready to go and we have our first Halloween party tonight. No big Mommy made costumes this year-feeling a little bit of the guilts-aaahhh the Mommy that's scary!

We're making yummy treats for our neighbors-chocolate covered spider legs.......don't you just want to dig right in???? It's really chocolate and pretzels and another easy peasy recipe I found on Cheat Day Cafe. Gotta love easy peasy

Have a great Halloween and weekend and don't eat too much of your kids' candy................peanut M &M's here I come!!
Edited to add-I'm linking up to Today's Creative Blog-Get Your Craft on Tuesday

I love the fabric on that skirt!!! Oh, it turned out so, so cute Dawn!

Hey, don't be feeling mommy guiltys one bit about Halloween costumes. I was lucky enough that Kim made Rachel's bumblebee outfit because of the Studio 5 segment, and with the others.... store-bought. Happy kids, happy mommy! LOL!
