October Already?!

Is it really October? I can't believe it! Just like all the millions of crafty blogs out there that I check way too often, I too LOVE the fall and all the crafty fall things that go along with it. I especially love Halloween! My kids are obsessed with it, which actually gets me quite excited too! I have a fun costume/dress-up tutorial in the works, so watch for that soon! But, along with October and fall, comes cooler weather and warmer clothing. While checking out all the fun cheap-o stuff at the dollar store the other day I ran across this:Don't ask me why the dollar store had some random (mostly hideously ugly) sweaters, but this one wasn't THAT bad...so I bought it. For a dollar. Not too bad. And this is what I had in mind for it:I love little sweater dresses on girls. And this is an el-cheapo version. Can't beat that. Maybe I'll work on a tutorial for this too! What cool weather clothes are you looking forward to wearing?
