New Plushies and Weekend Fun

I made these plushies a few weeks ago and I'm finally able to post them!!! I wanted to make sure that my Happy Mail friends got them first, so I wouldn't spoil the surprise! All the plushies I make are from my own hand-drawn pattern (unless I state otherwise) :)

Meet Boris the Whale... he loves swimming in the ocean and posing against wood grain. Isn't he a cutie? I hope he enjoys his new home :)

I also made this Best Friends plushie which was inspired from those BFF necklaces :) I figured she could keep them both or give one side to her BFF :)

This weekend was full of fun!! I accidentally left my camera at home for half of it :( We watched a few movies, The Fourth Kind and Avatar, both were pretty good (Avatar was AMAZING!!!). I may or may not have slept with the lights on after watching The Fourth Kind.... that possessed stuff really gets to me.

Here are some things I did get pictures of though :)

playing softball

getting some air time (I had a mini-panick attack btw)

taking feet pics

climbing trees

being cute

painted my nails a pretty pink

We went to a carnival at Hayden's school on Friday (forgot camera) DOH! I also did some serious spring cleaning, cleaned out a ton of boxes in the basement, moved couches and cleaned under them and cleaned curtains, dust, laundry...WHEW!! I painted Kaylee's toenails (that was a chore in itself).. but now they are a pretty mint candy apple :)

I also worked on some plushies which I will be finishing up today for a giveaway I'm putting together!! It will be HUGE!!!! 3 winners!!! YAY!! :D Hope everyone had an awesome weekend!!
