World Mermaid Awards site back up?

So the World Mermaid Awards site is back up. I'm not getting the best vibe about their new website though... I'm not saying this to be mean or anything, I happen to make my living in the area of design and it just makes me want to lend a hand or something to help get it back on track!

I left a message on their facebook page and was told that the website is still under construction. I'm not exactly sure what that is supposed to mean, but I'm trying to stay positive.

All that being said, I am still pretty excited about everything and I don't really want to give up hope on it all just yet!

Happy Friday everyone!

A little concerned...

Well now the website for the World Mermaid Awards has disappeared entirely... I'm not sure what's happening and I wasn't clever enough to write down the email address last night when I had the chance. If anyone knows what the scoop is, please let me know!

On a happier note, swimming was absolutely awesome! The goggles worked out OK, but I'm going to have to get something to help the fog issue. As for the earplugs, they were unbelievable! I have never felt quite so comfortable in the water as I did last night. I didn't have to worry about water in my ears and I was still able to hear people when they were talking to me (people being my awesome boyfriend Eric).

I was able to swim SO FAST and do all kinds of spins and tricks! It was amazing! I felt like I was dreaming or something! Now if only I could master the whole not-getting-water-up-my-nose situation. Ha ha.

I'm going swimming again on Saturday with my buddy Nicole so hopefully I'll have a bit more practice time!

Mermaid Awards?

Any fellow mermaids out there know what's happening with the World Mermaid Awards website? It looks like it's gone through a bit of a change... It was a lot more user friendly the other way around and I'm starting to think it might just be best to fire them an email to see what the scoop is. I just want to make sure that everything is still going according to the good old master plan!

Other than that little hiccup, everything else tail-related is moving along quite nice! Mum has been so helpful with the sewing and I've done three flipper-painting tests on scrap fabric and can say that this is going to look pretty awesome when it's complete!

I also picked up a pair of gorgeous new goggles that I absolutely love the look of! AND I found the pair of earplugs I have been hunting for FOREVER! You'll never guess where I found them though! At Canadian Tire of all places! $3.99!! I've tested them out and though they are a little snug (I have pretty small ears) they work really nice! I'm going to give all my new gear (minus my tail of course) a serious test run at the pool tonight! I need to start practicing my tricks and getting a bit of a routine going!

Anyway! It's all very exciting and I'm looking forward to posting photos and stuff really soon!

Keep swimming!
