I've ditched the elaborate homemade Halloween costume project due to either procrastination, the fact that I haven't used my sewing machine in 7 years and thought I could just unearth it and remember exactly how to use it, or the fact that I thought a glue gun could do the same thing as a sewing machine and sometimes it just can't.
However, we (I mean, my husband) replaced the costume with another homemade Halloween costume that is ultimately cool.
At least this time I've been more inspired than any time in the past 7 years to actually use my sewing machine again. The taste it there. Look out - I'm going to sew something soon. I mean it.
