I'm claiming jo_mama for a crocheted unicorn.

(4th claim, 0 in transit, 1 rec'd)


Hi!  I’m Melanie, a SAHM to 4 boys and 1 girl. I live in Ontario, Canada.   I love blues and purples and dark reds.  I don’t like greens.  I don’t really have much of a style, lol.  Just a mom! I love to crochet and totally LOVE every type of craft!!  I can’t knit for the life of me and I’ve tried!  I’m a hoarder of all things crafty.  I love to spend time with the kids, crochet, watch movies.  I like playing Mario and Zelda video games.  I used to read all the time and really want to get back into it. I have all the books I want to read, just haven’t started yet. I LOVE the moon.  I want to get the kids rooms done up.  Ethan – 5 – Spongebob or Buzz Lightyear, Liam & Aidan – 6 – Mario/Sonic/Zelda, Daysie-Lynn – pink/brown colours, with cutesy, girly animals….deers, owls, monkeys.  Anything with those themes would be AWESOME!!!!  I have lots more info in my profile.  OH!  Please no cigarette smoke smells or strong perfumey smells, they give me headaches.

I'm so sorry averia!!!!  I've had sick kids for 3 weeks straight (thats how long it takes to go through half of them!) Now I have it!!  And I've had a 103 fever since Thursday!  I thought it was gone today but I can feel it creeping back in.  And of course I've given it to Daysie, poor baby, but she seems better already after only 2 days.  I think its cuz my antibodies are working hard to get rid of it from me and then shes taking them all  Cheesy maybe now that shes better she can save some antibodies for me and it'll go away!  Anyways.......

I got the most beautiful little outfit for Daysie!!  And its a summer outfit so there are no action shots cuz it is a bit big, BUT I promise when she wears it I will post pics of that too!!  I had this dress on my pinterest, its soooo cute!!!  And I love the fabric averia chose!

whole outfit with dress, panties (diaper cover) and headband


Cute right?  BUT wait till you see the back!!!  I LOVE this part and I can't wait to see Daysie walking around in it!!!


Thank you so much averia!!!!!  I LOVE IT!!!!!  And I really am so sorry for taking so long to post pics.  OK, off to bed now

Kinder Eggs illegal in the US? Whatfor? Does Kinder put drugs in them?

I think its cuz the toys are so small?  A choking hazard, but its stupid cuz I read somewhere that someone was going to the states and were about to get the kinder eggs confiscated, so they ate the egg and got to keep the toy.  Huh  I dunno

I'm hoping I can get feedback in time for this one, it looks like soooooo much fun!!

2430  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Zelda Swap Round 4 (Signups CLOSED) Sendouts 04/04/) on: March 10, 2012 03:40:37 PM
Well I've decided to do 2 mediums + extras... I'm about halfway done with the first and the second is already planned out. Haven't heard anything from my partner.

Really? Hmmmm...I'm sure thats just an oversight, BunnieBard has been a loyal Zelda Swap participant since the first one. Hey, shes probably too busy working on something awesome!!  I started on something, but my kids were sick for 3 weeks (with 5 kids, they each take turns and it does take that long) and I could craft then, cuz I'd just do it when they weren't around, but guess what they did???  THEY GAVE IT TO ME!!!!  Wahhhhh!!!  I've had a 103 fever for 3 days now!!  And coughing my throat out!  Bonus is I can't really take anything for it cuz I'm still breastfeeding, so I've been eating tylenol when I can.  I don't know if the virus can travel through air in a box with yarny goodness, but I don't wanna take that chance either.
