All My Favourite Babies

This isn't strictly crafting but I thought I'd post pics of a few things I have made ;0)

It's taken over a year as Rowan is now 13 months but I finally have some good pics of all my babies together. At the back is Abi (dd2) on the left & Jo (dd1) on the right. In front is Rowan (ds) on the left & Mhara (dd3) on the right.

And here's a pic of my pair of posers.

Firstly a huge thank you to everyone who left a suggestion - 16 of you between here & MN! Since there were so many I've drawn an extra 2 names & there are now 5 prizes altogether.

So without further ado [cue drum roll]

1st prize (& I'm so gonna get accused of a fix for this) - Katy (GingerMonkey)
2nd prize - CountessDracula
3rd prize - nbgdoesnthaveachristmasname
4th prize - DutchOma
5th prize - AnnabelCaramel

So Katy wins the bunny, CountessDracula & nbg both get a lip gloss holder & DutchOma & AnnabelCaramel both get a wee lavender pillow. Mhara did the draw from her pink straw cowboy hat (once we'd managed to wrestle it off of Rowan - pink is definitely not his colour) so any thanks/blame should be directed towards her.

Thanks again to everyone who took part - if the winners can email me their real names & addresses (email link on my profile page) I'll get the prizes in the post.

PRIZE DRAW - Help me name my Etsy shop

I want to sell all hand-crocheted goodies & would like my shop title to reflect this but I am rubbish at names.
Anyone who leaves a comment on this post or on my Mumsnet thread with a name suggestion before 10pm on Wednesday 5th Dec will go into a hat to win Bella Bunny. She is crocheted in chunky grey yarn & has felt eyes & nose. Her ears, paws & tail are made of lovely fluffy pink yarn.

Two runners up will each receive a lip gloss holder keyring. It comes with a lip crayon & is perfectly sized for a standard lip gloss tube with wand.

Please please please give me your suggestions for a name - funny, quirky or just plain weird I will consider them all.

Christmas Fayre, hmmmm . . .

Well my first Christmas fayre has been & gone & it was rather a flop :(
There was hardly anyone there - even the home-baking stall had stock left! - & after paying for the table I probably only took about £20. Still I'm glad I did it & at least with all this stock I now have no excuse not to start my Etsy shop.
Which leads me on to . . .
