My blog has been low on pictures lately. So here are 2 of our most favorite family members these days...Kylie and Lucky. (Seeker went to bed with C* and was not able to be in this photo shoot.)
How we got involved with Webkinz. C* received a Webkinz leopard from the Kennedy's in honor of his 8th birthday. Within 24 hours, McK* had me drive her to the store to buy one for herself, with her own money! A week later, I knew that E* needed to use some of his saved up monies so that he could be in on the fun and games. Thus, we adopted Seeker the Leopard, Kylie the White Terrier and Lucky, the Pug.
Today, I made 10 leashes for these animals! TEN! Of course, under the guise that they were going to the Kennedy cousins for Christmas! haha. Little do my kids know that some of the ribbons they chose will be for their own animal.
I had been saying for weeks, "One webkinz is enough. I am not buying you a Webkinz for Christmas and Santa is not bringing you one either." Then I volunteered last week in McK*'s first grade class. Each and every student, when asked what they wanted for Christmas, asked for a Webkinz. Without fail. Ooh and the stories I heard. Some of them even had friends who owned "20" even "30" webkinz. (To which I replied, "they are pulling your leg!")
So, okay, okay...I spoil my kids...I decided that yes, my kids needed one more Webkinz. While most kids do not have 20...they do have probably 5 or 6. Two isn't that bad! (hehe.) So, on Friday, I managed to find McK the "rare" black cat that she wanted. On Saturday, I battled the mall and found that prices are higher than at Hallmark outside the mall. But I sucked up the extra buck or two and managed to find the Husky that C* was admiring and the Lion that E* talks about.
This evening, a google search for Webkinz clothes patterns came up with NOTHING...so...
Tonight, I got out my yarn and crochet hook and tried to fashion something for Kylie the White Terrier. It took a bit to remember the granny square pattern that I never made enough squares for a blanket. But I figured it out...and added a strap. Voila! A cape/coat/covering!
So, now if I can just remember how to add a new ball of yarn to my crochet work...I'll be good to go as I continue to design Webkinz Couture!
