Our kids are grown (I’m including all the nephews and nieces in the collective ‘our’) so we’re done with the trick-or-treating, but my hubs and I still wanted to do something for the season. We opted to go to Coffin Creek right here in our city of Corona. It’s a Halloween themed event that’s held at the same place as the Koroneburg Renaissance Festival. In fact, some of the same people who work at the festival were working that night!
There were five attractions: a hay ride, a maze, and three haunted houses. I wanted to dress up but the hubs was all, umm, no one dresses up. I was all, ummm, of course they do! He was right, no one else dressed up…but I didn’t care. I had fun.

The best part was running into the lady who was part of the fashion show at the Ren Faire. I was at her booth and we started talking. She didn’t remember me at first, but I reminded her I was the one with the crochet outfit. She got excited and said I was on her flyer. It was on display at her table with all the Faire info. Squeeee! I’m on the flyer!
That’s me on the lower left!
She asked what I was making for next year. I’m not sure yet but it’s gotta be good. I better get cracking on something right now! 🙂
I’ll be joining a friend at her annual craft fair boutique in her home, but when she asked, I didn’t have anything to sell. I knew I’d have to make some new items but what to make? I didn’t want to spend a lot of time crocheting products that didn’t sell and that I would have to store.
What to do? I made things I want for myself anyway or that the kids would like in the prize-box at work. Win win win for everyone.
I’ve been obsessed with Disney bounding and Mickey ears lately. I see all the cute ears when I go to Disneyland and imagine all the possibilities I could create with crochet. That got me thinking of headbands in general and I got to work.
I focused on kid friendly headbands that appealed to the kid in me as well.
I love love love the Nightmare Before Christmas and wanted to try it out.
Had to give princess ears a go too.
Couldn’t pass up some holiday ears.
Felt like I was missing something so I added pompoms. I like it! Might add some gold to it somewhere, might use flowers instead of pompoms…or just leave it and move on. To be determined. 🙂
It wasn’t all about the mouse. Here are some other experiments. These are geared more towards my students.
All in all, I’ve been busy! And what I don’t sell I can use!
