What I Made Wednesday {Halloween Costume Upgrade and a Linky Party}

Happy Halloween you ghouls and goblins! Our Trick-or-Treating has been postponed until Sunday due to the bad weather brought-on by Hurricane Sandy. No complaints, though; I wish it was on the weekend every year. Gathering up candy door-to-door on a school night kinda dampens the whole experience.

My son was kind this year in choosing an easy-peasy costume: a 1950's Greaser. We had the jeans, the belt, the socks, the shoes, the white t-shirt, comb, and the hair gel. What we didn't have was the leather jacket, which I had the awesome luck of finding on my first stop at Sears (thank you)! He wore the whole outfit last Friday at a Halloween Party but his first run had people wondering if he was The Fonz. What?!?!

 It is missing that no-guess element, right? So, with some Avery blank labels, a T-Birds logo from the movie Grease, and my trusty Xacto knife, I got to work. I think it turned out great! And now, there's no question. You won't be looking for a motorcycle or Richie Cunningham when my little Greaser enters the room.

Trace the logo onto the sticker paper. Cut with knife. Stick onto jacket.
 And, because we already had the Avery label paper, this upgrade cost me nothing! The jacket looks so much cooler, now!

Have a safe and Happy Halloween!

From a non-techie person: I've posted a link, but what's a party button and how do I display it on my blog?
