Now I know, over the years the looks of costumes have changed and we all have our back and forth of what is mas... however, as long as I have my boots, make up, glitter, feathers, water, and a few change in my side purse, I AM CARNIVAL... So please don't mess up my feathers, don't whine up and mash up the beads, just let me BE! lol
I designed this card for a friend who's giving this to a newbie into the carnival scene, and wants to surprise her with a little Carnival preparation package for the CropOver... So, of course I was excited to get out my feathers, my sparkles, and create a costume on a greeting card... It seems as if she's playing a frontline section, so I had to give her a mini back pack... and I heard her shape is on POINT, so I had to give her bikini!!! lol...
So if you have that friend who's preparing for Carnival, and you want to send them with greetings... Chat with me, let's organize a sweet send-off for them! Let this be a sneak peek of tomorrow's fantabulous post with more Carnival Creations!
Also, as I enjoy this Caribbean Week Celebration, I also stumbled across a copy of my mother's ole' books, and found some poetry from a family member name Paul Keens-Douglas called "When Moon Shine"... If you don't know about this author, please google, facebook, and research his work.
I grew up listening to his tapes and it always had us in stitches!!
I will definitely touch more on Caribbean literature very soon, so look out!
