Pink Lemonade

My newest creation in Pink Lemonade by Tonga Treats.

My little who wanted to help... so I let her be Icarus. It looks like she's already too close and her wings are just starting to burn. 

And really, these batiks are BRILLIANT. 

I see lots of things when I look at these colors. 

Fire, sunsets, but mostly... 

Starburst candies? Seriously, reminds me of the Starbursts color combination. So much so that I had to go eat some. Thank goodness Halloween just happened and I had plenty of selection to rifle through for just the right thing. 

It ended up about 64" x 64" and it's in the shop

Halloween 2014

It's over.
Halloween 2014 is in the books.
What a whirlwind.
4 kids, 4 costumes, 4 times the work and 4 times the chaos.
Seriously, I'm wondering what gives for people with more than 4 kids.
No really.
I would LOVE to know.
Any more than 2 children close in age results in some form of selected neglect.
So what do you give up at that point?
Because I can't give up making costumes entirely.
One did come from the Disney Store this year though. Peter Pan.
It was too awesome.
And he LOVED it.
But I did make the twins' lost boys costumes and Tinkerbell - except the wings.

The babies even liked the hats enough to leave them on most of the time. :)

 Tinkerbell thought she was in Never Land.

And twirling? Yes, lots and lots of twirling.
