You know how I’m always telling you to live in the moment? Not to be in a hurry to move on, not getting caught up looking towards the future and instead enjoy now. Enjoy today. This moment.
You have over 24 hours to enjoy 2015 Halloween festivities. So carve your pumpkins, go trick or treating, eat Halloween candy to your hearts desire. Don’t worry about work on Monday, don’t think about Thanksgiving in a few weeks, and definitely put Christmas plans on hold for one more day. You have a few more Halloween moments left, so make the most of them.
Before I get busy living in my Halloween moment, I want to share with you this little mummy guy I made for my sister. I stuffed him with candy corn as a little surprise, because when she gets really hungry, she’ll bite your head off. So this way, when she bites his head off, she’ll have a mouthful of candy corn.
This is my template for the mummy body. I sewed strips of white felt onto the front of my mummy, then cut the edges off (except for the two head strips). Then I sewed the front body to the back body, and stuffed with candy corn. Very easy….very time consuming. It was a good thing I was still into Gossip Girl last week. I think this mummy took three full episodes to complete. I could still shed a tear just thinking about GG being over, but I can’t live in the past. Time to live in the present: I’m off to carve pumpkins!
