So it looks like whatever glitch was screwing up the blog has finally passed/resolved/fixed itself after much screaming impotently at the screen of my laptop, so where were we?

Because as a prominent lady-type in your family has likely uttered at some point and time in your life, some stuff is just better when it's home-made.
And since you know I don't say stuff like that unless I can bring receipts, let's get this post started, shall we?

A bit less ambitious a DIY, perhaps, but I'm loving this Where's Waldo? costume tutorial. This one is especially good for parties and group photos at said parties.
