Halloween 'Fifteen!

To say I have been neglecting this blog is a huge understatement, but I hope you will take note of the changes above (HINT: new menu bar) and bear with me through just a few more growing pains.  BIG IDEAS are in the works over here at Sartor, and I am so excited to share them with you.

In the meantime, here's a look at what's kept me busy in the past couple of weeks - HALLOWEEN!

....where Christopher Robin plays....

I just finished packing away the last of the costumes from my Let's PLAY!  production of Winnie-the-Pooh KIDS.  31 costumes, all but one custom-built for this cast.

Okay, let's be real.  30 costumes, all by me, and all done out-of-pocket.  So to say I built them all might be a stretch since I definitely took some short cuts and used some off-the-rack items, but I'm pretty pleased with what I accomplished.  All told, I spent just shy of $415 on 30 costumes, which is about $13.78 per kid...although that figure is skewed somewhat by the three or four costumes I really splurged on.  Could I have spent less?  Certainly.  I could have eliminated my tights order and saved over $150 right off the top, but I.  Cannot.  Resist.  We Love Colors.  (And the tights are such good quality that I only lost ONE pair out of twenty to holes and runs, and they were all worn and worn and WORN by children ages 3-11).  Can I use many of these items over and over again?  Absolutely.  So I'm not sweating the cost (although I guess my husband might).

A scouting we will go...

I've been absent for a good long while....partly because I've been busy, partly because I was using all of my blogging time to write about Once Upon a Time....but honestly, one of the things that has had me dragging my heels about diving back in is the self-imposed pressure to return with some spectacular account of an amazing costume I made or a kick-ass party I threw.  This isn't that.  This post isn't even going to have pictures, I don't think.

A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to help Max's Webelos den earn their art activity badge.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy.  I printed out the requirements, ambitiously decided they would earn both their belt loop AND the activity badge, and planned out lesson 1 of a four-week series.  I figured I would shepherd the boys through the requirements for the belt loop on the first meeting, and then ask their opinions on which of the other suggested activities we would try next.

Once upon a time, all I wrote about was Once Upon a Time

SERIOUSLY NEED TO GET BACK TO BLOGGING.  Too much other stuff on my plate right now. Grrrr.

Until that happy day arrives, enjoy my second-to-last snark about the Frozen-arc on Once Upon A Time over on Disney Driven Life,  and enjoy this picture of Colin O'Donoghue, just because.

Still frozen.

It's true. Once is still Frozen.  Even a two-hour episode was not enough time to wrap up this lame story arc.

You know what to do.  Go read about it over on Disney Driven Life, and then come back and tell me to stop being such an Elsa-hater.

You may admire the way I masterfully
stride around my ship.



PS - I stole this Hook .gif for you from a tumblr called F***YeahHook.  Because I go that extra mile, just for YOU.
