Happy Halloween! 

Following in my footsteps…

I was Raph for Halloween as a kid. My dad and nana made me a paper maché turtle shell by pasting tonnes of newspaper to an oval laundry basket and painting it varying shades of brown. Proportionate to my tiny body, it was not. Memorable, creative and extremely heavy? Definitely.

In case you’re wondering, his little buffalo plaid scarf is handmade and is available in my Etsy shop! (It’s just the plaid part. The long bit is from his bandana thingy.

I do prefer the flexy foam shell this kid has, attached by Velcro. Thanks, Value Village! 😀

Happy Halloween to you and yours! Are you dressing up this year?

About Nikki

I've been writing since I was in kindergarten where I Crayola-markered an epic tale of a tiger and a balloon on a stack of lined papers folded into a booklet and stapled along the edge (carefully, and by my teacher). I love DIY, sewing, folksy music, animals and getting out to look at and listen to nature.
