Carnival is over

Another fun and successful carnival season is over in New Orleans, and we're all ready to get back to work at the Schoolhouse!   

See a few photos below.  The Carnival season is a busy one for Kate, not only because she's sewing her own costumes, but because it's a busy season for her to create and sell her costume headpieces.
