FYI I found some more of that white Spark A Doodle yarn. I’m going to list it for sale in my eCrater store on Sunday night as soon as I get the kids to bed. Bed time is 9 pm Eastern time, so probably about 9:15 or so. I had to spend a little more to get this yarn, so I am only selling it on eCrater to keep the price as low as I can. (The fees are much higher on eBay and Etsy.)
I will list it right here on Sunday night 10/25/2015 just after 9 pm Eastern time. I know it’s hard to get and I have a few people asking for it. I want to be fair and give everyone a fair shot at the yarn, so that’s why I’m selling it this way.
I have four balls of yarn with the label and seven balls without the label. The yarn with the labels will go for $11 and without for $10 each.
And here’s some random stuff we’ve been making at our house:
I helped my son make a Freddy Fazbear mask for Halloween.
In case you don’t have the privilege of FNAF-obsessed people living at your home, Freddy Fazbear is a video game character from Five Nights At Freddy’s. The game is a horror game suitable for children. It’s pretty scary, and the scares are jump scares, not blood and gore or violence. It seems to be based on the old terrifying Chuck E Cheese theme restaurant. (When I was a kid, Chuck E Cheese had a giant robot band of Chuck E Cheese (a mouse) and his creepy friends on a stage that would “perform” while diners attempted to choke down the most awful pizza I have ever tasted. Chuck E Cheese is still around, and the pizza is still disgusting, but they’ve ditched the rat robot band in favor of video games.) I wonder if they have a FNAF game at Chuck E Cheese? That would be cool!
We watched this video to get ideas for the mask, and then used stuff we had at home to make it. We didn’t have a giant piece of brown felt, so we used some other fabric we had. I think the felt would have been even better, but my son is very happy with his mask just the way it is. I’m proud of him!
And here’s a ribbon holder I cobbled together out of a really annoying over-the-door towel holder and some stuff I had lying around. I think there’s room for a couple more rows of ribbon in there, but I guess I’ll have to move my poster. That constitutes a major redecorating move for me, ha ha!
Thanks for checking in!
