Rain, Rain Go Away

Ordinarily, I am all for a nice autumnal storm. I like a rain day here or there and goodness knows, we haven't had much of it around here lately. BUT...why must is rain when I am busily trying to spray paint and glitter-ify all kinds of accessories (funnels, wands, broomsticks, crowns, etc.) for our Halloween costumes? I just don't have the time for such things!

I thought I outsmarted the rain and sprayed Teensy's crown when the drizzle had ceased. Stupidly, I left the crown on the deck to dry and, of course, the rain recommenced. I blotted it the best I could and then brought it into the kitchen to dry. Of course, the air in the kitchen is really damp anyway and the glitter glue I spread this morning on the top of her wand still isn't dry. Please, pray for dry weather for me or our costumes are going to be dripping all kinds of silver Saturday night.

Good luck with the drying. Maybe if the rain or humidity sticks around you can place the costumes in your "spacious" laundry room while the dryer is on. That might help a little.

I cannot wait to see photos.

I think I have to go with the rain, if I've any chance of winning a prize this year ;)

Have you tried the hair dryer? That would help it dry faster...
