a giggle of mermaids

What DO you call a group of mermaids. A school? A pod? A gaggle? A giggle?
Well, this bunch of mermaid ATCs are for my ATC trade tonight at Bizzy Bs -- the theme is Water. One of my favourite themes. I found some time to make ATCs. But now I'm behind on some other projects.... It never ends..... ahhhhh, summer.........
I used lots of little strips of blue scraps, Heather Bailey Ross (oops) mermaid fabric, tulle, and novelty fibers.

I love your mermaid. It really made me wish I'd gotten it together for Friday night, although I drew a blank when it came to water ideas. How could I have forgotten about mermaids?

These are wonderful! I love mermaids and I guess you'd call them a 'school'? Whatever you call them they're fantastic. Love the little bits of scraps you used.
I also LOVE your Frida birthday tribute!
thanks for your comments.
