Handmade Halloween

My mother used to make all of our Halloween costumes and they were usually really elaborate. There was a Snow White costume complete with the initials "SW" embroidered on the cape and the princess costume with contrasting colors inside the long bell sleeves. So, as I grew older it was always imprinted in my head that you make your Halloween costume, and I have almost every year since I was about 12. But these bag costumes that generally had been thought of as cheap or ugly have really come a long way. Now they can cost you upwards of $50 and come with many accessories! I wont fall for it though, I still make my costume and my husband and I are headed to some great Halloween fun this weekend in our Muppets costumes. He, being a drummer for a long time, has chosen Animal, and I have chosen Rowlf as a Muppet Baby. Check back after Halloween for some pics and you can see just how well we did.

Weather is Changing, Economy is Grey

It's starting to get cooler, even here in Texas and the seasons are definitely in the process of change. With all of the turmoil in our economy and with the election it's easy for us all to get a little blue every once and while. That was the exact inspiration for Midnight Snack's newest piece, the Sunshiny Day Cardigan.

The sun, smiling brightly with rosy cheeks is peeking out from behind a grey cloud, reminding us that it will be sunny again soon. Wearing this on your cardigan will help you get through those tough days when you think things will never turn around.

We've also started making our robot hoodies again, which were a huge hit last fall and winter. Our hoodies with different appliques are very popular and are perfect for the colder months on the horizon. We'll continue to put out new clothing with different designs, but if you have something specific in mind please contact us, we love hearing from customers!

Let Me Give You My Card

My wonderful new business cards arrived this week and they look great! Woohoo for not having to print my own cards anymore! My cards are from GotPrint.com and I highly recommend them. I feel like I'm official now, and so far people have responded really well.

My favorite package from Etsy came from Gypsy Rabbit. The jewelry comes in an adorable cloth pouch with the jewelry packaged in platic and card stock baggies. She hand writes a note and gives an adorable mini button and a free gift! I strive to make my promotional materials as beautiful as Gypsy Rabbits.
