I think my daughter is going to be a queen. Not sure about my son. I guess as soon as he figures that out I will leave another comment!! :)

Crystal said...

I love this giveaway! Aubrey is going to be a Ladybug and Livy is going to be a bumblebee. I am half way done making them.

Ms Muffin said...

Thanks for this great giveaway! I would love to enter!!!
I cannot tell you however, what we are going to be for halloween and how we are going to celebrate. Simply because - well, my due date is November the 1st ... so this year we are planning to skip most of Halloween ... unless the baby comes really early and we feel like having a little halloween fun. Halloween is not that big overhere in Germany so it is easy to "skip" it. But I will tell you how we celebrated last year - hope that still counts for the give-away! :-) My daughter was a witch and I was witch, too and my husband was a magician. We met up with a cousin of mine and her kids and went to a small zoo who had a Halloween Party. They had ghosts and lanterns and a fire show and lots more. It was really nice! If we do end up going there this year again - the party is every year - we will probably use the same costumes. Unless I win the giveaway ... ;-)

I already receive at least one (maybe even more) YCMT newsletter. Does that count?
(I love that store. They have so many cool projects!)

Maridith said...

Honey count me in!! Don't you think it is time I win one of your give-aways?? (wink)

My son is going to dress up like a dog and my daughter like a cat...get it...they get along like cats and dogs!! I am cheesy I know!! To celebrate we have a couple halloween parties to go to and on Halloween day we go to church for a carnival!! It is so much fun!!

Other things from YCMT that I would love ... hard one! I simply cannot pick one single one! Not possible. I LOVE all the clothe sewing stuff for kids. (However, I realized there is only little for boys.) I also love the crochet patterns, like Old Fashioned Basket Weave Pinafore and Cloche - SO CUTE!!! Or the Midnight Neck Wrap. Would love to make one for myself! Looks so cute and cozy. And no more hazzle with the scarf that always slips from my shoulder ... Or these cute crochet slippers for babies and toddlers (called Fanci-Flats). So cute! Well, I could go on and on ... :-)

Pick me!!!!

I'm dressing up as a Spanish dancer, and Emily is either going to be Word Girl from PBS Kids or Lynx(sp?) from the Zelda video game. We are suffering from a major case of indecisiveness with regards to Halloween costumes at the moment.

I lucked out and both my kids wanted Grandma to make their costume. (they thought of this idea on their own too!). My daughter is going to be a pink princess and my son Davey Jones.

Uncles said...

I am going to celebrate halloween passing out candy. Not sure what I will be yet, last year I was a bunch of grapes so I am trying to think of something to beat that.

PineyWoodsMommy said...

This is such a great give away!! I'd love all these to add to my collection. My daughter will be 6 and my son will be 2 this Halloween, and they are going to be Mickey and Minnie. I'm working on the Minnie skirt now! I love your blog!
