TONIGHT IS THE NIGHT!! Hail Nyx! We’re rolling tonight at 7!
I’m excited,tired,sad and happy all at the same time. Happy I’m riding, sad that I have to now part with my babies.
What babies you ask?
Why the decorated purses I’ve created throughout the year. It’s our signature throw and if you catch one, you indeed have a prized possession. The purses take many “people hours” to create and a lot of love and attention go into making them. Most of my purses were purchased from thrift stores. I’d often find the most torn and tattered ones and give them new life. We’re only allowed to bring 30 on the float, but we can create more than 30 and give them out to family and friends.
It’s been rainy and it’s supposed to be cold tonight. Hopefully, the rain will be finished by the time we roll…otherwise you all will see a soggy Bayou Creole on the webcam.
I’ll post about my day (which I’m sure will be one of the most amazing days of my life) sometime tomorrow…hopefully.
I gotta go…busy…busy…busy.
Here are some of my creations that I’ll either throw tonight or have given to friends. Some are simple, some are not. All have a part of me in them.
I hope you enjoy!
