First of all, my little boy’s costume is done.  
Just sorting through pictures and such.  
I’ll be sharing the costume tutorial by Friday.  Yay.
Oh, and if you’re still stuck on the perfect costume ideas for this year……make sure to check out last year’s virtual costume parade, here.  
Remember all of those great costumes that many of you created?
You guys were fantastic, and clever, and so darn creative last year.
What are you making this year?
If you are making a costume this year, make sure to add the image 
to the you made it/love it” flickr group, here.  
C’mon, we all want to see!
(And I’ll post many of the costumes the day before Halloween or so.  Eeeeh, I can’t wait.)
While on the subject of that little tab up there, right below my header, 
that says you made it/love it”
Well, you’ve all been busy it seems.
With a lot of great and inspiring things.
Thanks for adding your projects to the group!
But I just had to share a few of the things that you’ve been making, while using some of the tutorials from Make It and Love It.  Bless your sweet little sewing/crafting hearts.
All pictures taken from the flickr group here.
You’ve been busy decorating your homes….

Oooooh, and I love all of the cakes you’ve been mastering, using Brittany’s cakes tips.



And you’ve even been making some accessories and items for yourselves…

All of them.
I surely hope you’re all having that great feeling of satisfaction after completing your projects.  
There’s nothing like it.
And I can’t get over some of the clever ideas and twists some of you put on the ideas that I have shared.  
You all take things to the next level……..and I love it.
Thanks again for sharing.

    I come to your site all the time so imagine my surprise to see my sweet little girl in her pettiskirt on your site! Thank you so much for all your inspiration and tutorials and for including my pic on your site. I had a blast making it, although it will be a long time before I make that many ruffles again ;)
