I made this fashion list at the beginning of the year with the aim of either purchasing or making all of it by years ends. To say I’m halfway through is generous. But, I have knocked off some of the bigger ticket items and I read somewhere it takes 5 years to develop a solid fashionable wardrobe, so I’m in good shape. Plus, my sewing is getting better.

The journey continues.

My mom, sister and I traveled to Salem MA to visit my brother and brother-in-law.

I was also there to partake in the halloween adventures, I had made a Mennonite costume for the occasion after all.

I had also planned on getting a Tarot Card reading, but what I hadn’t expected was the adventure it would send me on.

This is my finished Mennonite get-up. I wore it around Salem for the Halloween weekend.
I walked around with my hands inside the bib because it was just so comfortable. Apparently Mennonites do this too. However, I feel like anyone in overalls does this. It just happens.

Last week I started working on my Mennonite Halloween Costume. This week, I finished it.

Last week I talked about my Mennonite experience. This week, I talked about my own personal experience growing up as a Mennonite.

I bought myself a new light for my videos & photos. I am struggling to figure out how to best use it for my videos, but I have been having fun taking photos and I particularly liked this one cause it highlights my rather angular face and is also kinda moody.

I am off to Salem, Massachusetts for Halloween, home of the Haunted Happenings. Now I really don’t like costumes but why not dress up for the occasion. When in Rome, do as the Romans, right?

After some pondering, I decided that I was going to dress up as my ancestors: the Mennonite people. Also, sewing some traditional clothes would make for a great sewing project … which is actually the main reason.

What I like about my bedding update is the textures. The fabrics have beautiful weaves. The pillows are soft and add warmth. Overall, I feel like I’ve made the area much more cozy.

I also learned how to do macramé knots to make the plant hanger and as it grows, the vines will fill out the area.

With the shirt done, the only thing left was for the actual wedding to happen, so both sides of the family convened at my sister & brother-in-law’s home.

But more then just it being a wedding, I learned something new about my family that had never been talked about.

This is the story of the whole weekend.
