Tripod and lighting ring

I’ve always struggled with two main issues for my blog photos.  One problem is with getting light in my pictures. My house is SO dark, so  my pictures are always a little too dark.  The second issue is I don’t have anyone following me around with a camera and I’m usually by myself when I try on clothes or decide I want to take a picture for my blog.  I think I found a solution to both of those things!! I ran across this lighting with tripod and remote control on the deal of the day this week, so I went ahead and got it.  I’ve put it together and I’m letting it charge now.  Fingers crossed that this is the answer to my problems!! I bought a few more things, so I’ll be trying it out soon.

Costume Party

Halloween is my FAVORITE time of the year!! Our friends throw an annual Halloween Party and everyone is so creative.  Even the food is Halloweeny!

I love planning out cute costumes and putting them all together.  This year we went as a hunter and deer along with our besties.  This may have been the easiest costume ever to make!! I’m also getting a lot faster making tutus since I make them for almost every costume lately!!

For the deer, I started by buying antlers,  brown leggings and a brown shirt.  Let me tell you, I will probably wear these leggings all the time.  I love the way they fit and feel!! I used the cricut to make a big white oval, then pressed it on the shirt.  You could use felt, too, but since I have a cricut, I just used that!  All of that took about 2 minutes.  The tutu is just tulle and ribbon. It takes a little longer, but it completes the costume.

My husband’s outfit was even easier.  I just bought a green shirt and he already had the coat, crocs and camo looking pants.  But I did have to buy him a rifle.  The green shirt came in a package of two, so now I can make him something else with the cricut!  Overall, the costumes were a hit!
