Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

I had a few people comment on my scarecrow Halloween costume from last weekend. It was really easy to do, took very little time and I pulled it together solely using items I had in my house. In short, it's a pretty perfect DIY mom costume. I found this Pin that I modeled my makeup after: Halloween DIY scarecrow makeup for moms @ohbotherblog

I used:

  • black liquid eyeliner
  • red lipstick because I didn't have a peachy orange color like she used
  • a flannel shirt
  • a floppy straw hat

My (gorgeous) friend Danielle did the makeup as well for her costume, and even used a color closer to the model's. Danielle used an actual Halloween makeup kit for hers and she said she wished she'd used liquid liner instead because her makeup smeared throughout the day, despite using powder. Still looks pretty awesome, I must say.
