There is a lot going on in this edition of News Shell, where merfolk get their news!
When those chilly evenings arrive, don't let your pretty tail get cold. Grab your mermaid afghan! If you crochet, you can find a great Mermaid Afghan pattern over at Favecrafts.
If you don't crochet, Favecrafts can help you get started. Check out the 'Beginner Crochet' link in the left margin. You're never too old to learn a new skill.
Or, you can do as I did, and find a nice person to make your afghan for you. Be sure to buy them a very good dinner afterwards! As you can see, my afghan is coming along nicely.
Tinker Bell & The Mermaids
We now pay a quick visit to Jasminetoad at Deviantart and her painting entitled, Tinker Bell and the Mermaids. This is a great piece of work, and it is certainly getting rave reviews.
Disney Star Transforms
The Huffington Post has some great mermaid photos of Disney star Bella Thorne (Shake It Up) and her sisters. They were transformed into mermaids, courtesy of Project Mermaid.
The Real Origin of Mermaids
Miss Cellania has what might just be the origin of mermaids. Pay a visit to her blog post at Neatorama and see for yourself.
Discrimination is a very bad thing, no matter how it comes about. An article by Dan Avery in NewNowNext takes on the subject of bias and discrimination by sharing a recent edition of The Colbert Report.
This article is a must-read. The staff of News Shell thanks you in advance.
More Tail Makers
Since we first shared our list of tail makers in March of 2012, readers have been suggesting additional sites. Be sure to pay another visit to the list which now includes Finfolk Productions, Miami Beach Mermaids, and Fin Fun Mermaid.
