I've always liked manatee's.. I guess I could relate to being huge and kinda clumsy. Then an ex roommate liked the word Dugong and for some reason he decided that was my new nickname.  Undecided I now collect Manatee stuff whenever I can find it. I have the cutest little plushie manatee that I found in a thrift store Smiley

I really want to join this swap! But I'm not sure if it'll work out timing wise ..

I signed up.  I already know what I'm going to make.  =) I used to work at Sea World Orlando as an educator, and spent many an hour with the "little" darlings.  The manatees, one of the polar bears, and the belugas were my favorites.

i am so sorry i have been absent for a few days and it took me awhile to approve the last few people!  of course i had a super busy week and then BAM! hit with the sick!  sometimes i think i just get too busy to take care of myself and see the warning signs and then it's too late and i'm in full blow "so sick i can't get off the couch" mode!  blah!   anyway, i am sending emails and getting things organized the best i can but i am still a little delirious with the flu, so let me know if i forgot anything!

I've been getting back to looking through craftster and damn it, this website is always such a temptation. Now I want to join this swap. :/ I actually have a stuffed toy of a manatee on the monitor right now, I made it his permanent residence just cause he looked so cute there. He always brightens my mood when I see him over there.  Cheesy

PS: When did you all get obsessed with manatees? Seriously, I'm starting to realize maybe I'm not the only one who saw a photograph in a fifth grade Biology textbook and went.... "awww, so chubby and cute."

no you aren't the only one!  it was fifth grade for me!!  we had to do a class project on a sea animal and all the dolphins and whales and standard stuff was taken by the time it was my turn to pick from this huge pile of books on a table and then i saw a manatee book and fell in love.  i wrote a report on them and it's been obsession and true love ever since! 

i went snorkeling with them about 5 years ago which was something i had dreamed of since 5th grade when i found out you could do that!  i really would like to go again!

It was first grade for me. We were learning about all the sea creatures, what really sealed the deal was when my Dad went to FL and came home with a manatee T-shirt for me the next year.

Last year my hubby and I went snorkaling with them too. It was so awesome! Best vacation I ever went on! Takes up most of the pages in the vacation scrapbook, lol. Even my Hubby who I don't think fully understands (but indulges) my love of them was in awe. We want to go back when they're more out in the springs but money of course gets in the way.
