LOL, I sent one to my mom and the rest of my family is jealous. It's a shame the yarn is so expensive (I got it clearanced out but I priced it the other day CRAZY expensive).

 

The latest in squid products I'm in love with and went immediately onto my keys

Thank you, he's my prototype :D When I make another one the ribbon will be in between the sides. I didn't know what he was going to be until I had a tiny squid  already done

@@tweakabell I feel that I should let you know that the Giant Squid made a guest appearance in my dreams last night. There were so many WTF moments in that dream, that I vaguely recall it as coming of as almost normal and welcoming, in a random and off-kilter manner.

Haha! I debated entering the giveaway, but decided against it. Possibly irrational, but I keep thinking that my entering would make it one chance less likely of a family with kids (or a dog) that would really love it.  I used to have a huge plushie collection growing up, which is a terrible thing to collect if you have asthma! My mother would toss them all in the dryer to get the dust off when I would come home from college. The one time she didn't, I found myself walking up to them and calmly letting them know that I probably needed to go to the ER to go on a nebulizer, but no need to rush I'm good. No one around me ever seems to appreciate how chill I am when I'm working on low oxygen.  <_<

 

Sorry for the tangent! The point was that it's a bit of a hoarding tendency that I've fought against my adult life. I have exactly three plushies on my dresser right now and I think I may be okay with that. However, if you ever decide to look into making giraffes, it may get brutal. (I blame FAO Schwartz.)  :ph34r:

 

Everyone should go enter the Giant Squid Giveaway because it's awesome. You can love it, and hug it, and call it George. Or Squishy. It can be your squishy. Or whatever your heart desires!

I'm horrible I love stuffed animals, usually the bigger the better. I've been waiting/too overwhelmed to make my personal squid and I'm torn between the 4' or attempting the 8' :D I have a new pattern to attempt that would cut down production time so my squid might be the prototype for the new pattern.

Whatever you decide, it will be epic. It's only nemesis will be the plushie sperm whale. Ooooh, epic plushie reenactments.

    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
