2 baby bunnies! We did not know our bunny Dandelion was pregnant, so this was quite a surprise. The kids are over the moon about the babies. They are so cute and little. We had to move the proud papa, Basil, to another cage so there are no more baby bunnies on the way, lol. We can't decide on names. We are tossing around Hazel and Fiver (from "Watership Down"). Kenna's suggestions last night? Calcium and Fiber. Ummm ... no. If there were three, they would inevitably be Flopsy, Mospy and Cottontail. It took almost a week to name the 2 original bunnies, so hopefully these little cuties will have names sooner than that!

I've been part of The Spotted Box (with Earth*School, and some months, Holden's Landing) since the very first box, in September 2007. There are always loads of great items in there! Here is what came in our box this month, minus a few things the kids took off with right away ;)
Face of the Wave - lotion sample (mine, all mine!)
Scent-sory Creations - chocolate milk bath sample (this is going in McKenna's stocking!)
Social Butterflies - a really beautiful yellow and white hair clip 9again, going in McKenna's stocking)
Blue Goose Designs - a cute froggy recycled crayon (going into Holden's stocking)
Simply Clean - wonderfully smelling laundry solution (can't wait to try this out!)
The Little Love Bug - a mini ear of corn with removable husk felt play food (this will go in with the wool foods the kids are getting for the holidays)
Silver Huggers - a neat charm (that I will probably use as a stitch marker, unless McKenna claims it, then it will go on her jacket)
Zupko Zen Creations - soap sample (lavender - one of my favorites!)
Ben and Dutchess - soap sample (this will go in my freebies bin)
FOE Your Diaper - really pretty turquoise FOE (now I have tho think up a project to use it on!)
lili tutu - a cute zipper pull (Kenna's stocking again ... you can see why she likes when TSB comes so much! she gets nearly everything!)
In Stitches - stitch marker (going in my knitting bag)
Country Soaps by Marlene - hand and body lotion (this will be part of a Christmas present for a friend)
Waddle Wades - cloth wipes (going into our wipes basket)
Bellies, Babies 'N More - a little napkin with wool bow tie pasta and sauce (going in Holden's stocking, he is a pasta/macaroni freak!)
Piping Hot Papers - an adorable push pin (can't decide if this will somehow make it into on of my scrapbooks or if i will hang onto it for the cork board I plan to someday make, lol)
Cathartic Slant - cute card (going into my card drawer)
1st Comes Love - really pretty card in one of my favorite color combinations (card drawer again, although this one may find it into one of my scrapbooks instead)
fishnoodles - iron on patch, beautiful reindeer (the kids are fighting over which of them will get this on an item of clothing. I think Kenna won because holden ran off with the iron on of veggies, and now I can't remember who made that one, sorry!)
Lil Birdie Bottoms - wipe solutions bud (going into my freebies bin since we have no one in diapers anymore)
Handmade by Debbie - vintage look Santa hair tie (going to Kenna again!)
There was also the veggies iron on, a coupon and a couple of ornaments that the kids ran off with.
All in all, this is the box that I will use the mot items from myself, for our family. I am very pleased with everything! I usually have lots of things to put in my freebies bins but not this month!

Thia year, I am thankful for my children and family, of course, and all of our health. I am also extremely thankful for all of my customers, who have made this year a truly wonderful year for me. I am also thankful for my sewing machine repairman who can fix anything and fix it quick, lol!
And some bamboo velour pillowcases, I love these! The first is finished with satin blanket binding (same as our LoveScapes).

Holden, the frightful ghost (he wouldn't wear anything on his face so this is what I cam up with. He looked more like a wizard or Druid or something but he was warm and happy. Hey, last year the kid trick or treated in a pair of pajamas a a robe!) Note the *very scary* look on his face!

Outer is cotton twill, so it dyed fairly nicely (not as nicely as BOV, but NOTHING dyes as nicely as BOV!), hidden PUL, inner is baby blue microfleece. Quick dry snap in contour soaker, organic cotton fleece topped with bamboo velour, just like in our regular AI2s. She requested a Noah's Ark theme and mentioned they liked lions and elephants. Dye is "blue waters". Front features a dove with branch flying past a rainbow; back features a hand drawn ark applique that I designed specifically so that the elephants and lions would fit, with a lion pair on deck, a monkey pair swinging from the cabin, an elephant pair nuzzling together while looking out the porthole and a parrot pair flying along. I am so happy with this, I hope you like it Carley!
I will be officially introducing these for sale this week at K&F Shops, where I will put up 2 custom PlayScape slots, Friday, 10/24 at noon.
