My Melonhead would definitely need a headband (I LOVE them), a cute dress, and cowboy boots. She would need to hold a glass of sweet tea, a MAC laptop, and a children's book! This is so much fun!

Peace, Love, and First Grade

Mrs Diane said...

Laura W said...

Yeah! Congrats on 900 :) Woot! Woot!

I would love to win a melonhead. Mine would be a mom with all the different jobs I have. Maybe a taxi hat, a bandaid, a soccer ball, and a mixing bowl or spoon and something crafty (I think I have it driver, nurse, soccer mom, crafter and cook. Yep that sums me up!)

Thanks Nikki for the chance to win. The family tree is beautiful too
hugs :)

Laura said...

Awesome giveaway! Your melonheads are so adorable! I am a mom and a teacher so I can imagaine I would be carrying a big stack of papers, a book, or a laptop.

Too cute!


The Groovy Teacher said...

Hi What great prizes and congrats on your 900! If I won my melon head would have to be me, doing what I love, Teaching

Eileen Griffin said...

Yeah! What a fun giveaway! Of course I am following both blogs. What beautiful family trees. I must have one! For my melonhead, I would want to be sitting on a huge stack of fairy tale books, with my Mac laptop in one hand and a wand in the other. I would want to be wearing a crooked crown, with an outfit like your melonhead, but with blue and a pair of sparkling red shoes. How is that for an idea! Ha!

Sandra said...

I follow both and my melonhead would like a cute teacher {apple, pencil}, macbook, big teacher bag... LOL
Oh, it sounds hilarious!! :)

Oh yes, I would use my melonhead to make calling cards or maybe my blog if I could figure out how to do it. Thank you for a fun giveaway! Happy 900, Nikki!

Melissa Miller said...

Congrats on getting 900 followers!

My melon head would have to have sock monkeys on it. Maybe on the shirt or holding one!

Thanks for the chance to win!

Kathryn said...

I would be so stoked to have a "crafty math teacher who speaks French and loves to travel" melonhead. Probably not one that you could sell to too many other people as it's a strange combination of interests. ;)

Dede B said...

I love me some melonheadz! I would have my melon head holding a camera to "cute" up my business cards =)

Jen R. @ The Teachers' Cauldron said...

yay for you!! My melonhead would be a blond, curly haired beach that complicated or what?! lol

Courtney said...

What an awesome prize!! I'm a Kindergarten teacher who loves pink and my Boston Terrier, so I think she'd have to be sitting by my feet with me in a pink outfit. It would be so cute to use in my classroom and to "brand" my letters/info to send home with the kiddos. :)

FirstGradeBlueSkies (Jennifer) said...

I follow both! My melonhead would have long, straight brown hair =)

I think the MelonHeadz should be won by a teacher so I just want to comment on how much I love the new look of your blog! It is AH-Mazing! :) Thanks for your generosity in providing us with freebies! (My son is going into teaching in August!)

Mrs. Hoang said...

My melonhead would have curly red hair :)

Kathy Salazar said...

WOOHOO Nikki!!! I knew you were wonderful, sounds like the word is out gal-Well, since I am a recent breast cancer survivor, I may have to have some little pink ribbon thingy- but I am a preschool teacher and would need to show others how much fun these little children can be- somehow? kids hanging from my arms? heehee

Following both.

Janine said...

Congrats! What an amazing milestone and thank you again for my cutie patootie follower graphic! My Melonheadz would definitely be wearing pink, she would have to have a tutu (for my dancing daughters) and probably some sort of something to do with Broadway and her pink shirt or leotard would have the symbols for peace, love, teach (peace sign, heart, apple). Is that too much, haha!

Miss Foote said...

Congrats on the 900! Your images are always so adorable. A melonhead with a party hat wearing, little chick sidekick.

Heidi said...

Wow 900 followers, that is Wonderful, I remember when you were just starting out. So I am leaving this because if I were to actually win a melon head, I would need one of the following. a ball of yarn and a crochet hook, or a spinning wheel, or a weaving loom, or just a fun camera, of course if you were to ask my other half, he would say that I needed a computer since he thinks that is all i do during my day. I am so excited that you have so many new followers. Thanks for being so wonderful yourself.

Delighted said...

Congratulations! I'm not sure what I would want my melonhead to be like...but she would need a dog beside her.

Heather said...

I love all your drawings. If you drew me I'd like it to be a scrapbooker.
