Getting Wild

I'm attempting to make Maddox's Halloween costume this year. I feel I owe it to him to be crafty and clever. My goal is Max from Where the Wild Things Are. The movie is coming out next month so I have a feeling there may be a lot of little Max's running around, but to my searching knowledge, there are no Max costumes on the market.
You have to make it. Which gives me hope that there won't be too many out there and Mad will stand out a bit.

People are selling their custom made ones on Etsy and Ebay, but they're going for $$$. Wish me luck. I got the fabric, the tail, the buttons and a pattern. See you in a month!

You're a very stylish girl

It's been a long time since I posted. I guess I've just been busy, uninspired and trying to figure out what this blog really is. It started out as a venture to connect with other moms and possible make some money from blogging. When I realized that unless you're Dooce or one of the other pioneers in "mommy blogs" that just isn't' going to happen. So then it turned into just updates on my life as a mom, but very sporadic and mainly just for me.

As I try to figure it out, I was recently inspired by some very stylish girls and thought I'd share. I've always been intrigued by the fashion world and intrigued by those marvelous ladies who have an amazing personal sense of style. While reading one of my inch thick September issues of the numerous fashion magazines I get, I came across two blogs you should check out:

style bubble.
This girl is out of the UK, cute as hell and has wicked style that is both quirky and stylish. Love it.

And Karla Deras of A 19 year old out of LA. Yes, she's 19 and she has amazing fashion sense.
