I Would Love to be a Giant Squid

Updated on October 27, 2012

What's A Giant Squid?

Well, there's Giant Squid, and then there's the Squidoo kind of Giant Squid. To qualify for this honor, you need 50 GREAT lenses. Eesh.

Well, this is a goal that I'm setting for myself. The deadline for this particular session is June 30th , and I have 25 lenses to make in order to get to 50 total...then I have to make them terrific. (but no pressure!) =P

I was nominated!

I was nominated for Giant Squid at the end of 2009 - what an honor! The thing is, I kind of fell off the Squidoo-wagon for a bit....being busy with other things and such.

Keeping Track?

I count 15 lenses so far.....we've still got a ways to go to get to 50!

What's the Tally?

Including this particular lens that you're reading, that's 28 lenses so far....think I'll make the deadline?

Think You Have What It Takes?

Find out more on how to Become A Giant Squid and try your hand at it!

I'd love to hear from you! Do you have a favorite? One that you think won't qualify for Giant Squid? I want to hear about it!

What's Your Favorite Lens & Why?

      Nice group. A lady at the church where I worked made a prayer shawl for my mom and she used to always have it on her bed. I need to find it.
