I am winning quite a few auctions right now. I just hope that I don't get outbid. Some of that fluff is so so lovely.

Are there more than one Elbee auctions? I only found one.

I love the new MM/Pinhead auctions that came up.

So far I have only bid on one auction and I am still winning it. I have a limited amout of paypal I have set aside so I have to be careful what I bid on. If I don't end up using all my cash on winnings I will use it on the donate direct.

oh, yes the elbee! I love that it's YPA. The TDD/luxe set is pretty fluffolicious too! Oh, there's another elbee in the regular "diapering" section (not charity) that was listed by claire (spark) and she is planning to donate to AFO with the proceeds. it's a brand new one!

I'm still winning 3 auctions and anxiously awaiting more listings! This is SO fun.

I'm amazed by the number of items Meredith of Knitwitz baby has under the 100% donation category. She is just knitting away for charity, how cool of her!

I wish that the KPs were mediums. There is so much cute stuff available for all the preggo mamas. Sarah was in nb/smalls for about a nanosecond, though, so I would never beable to justify big money on those sizes. I guess it's good that there is such a great variety of stuff so there is something for everyone.

ok I am freaking out. I can't see the elbee unless I do a search under the name "elbee" When I look at the 100% donated section there is no elbee (and I've refreshed and looked like 10 times) I'm not going to bid on the elbee but now I'm scared what else I am missing!

Why are people bidding on my knitty bitty soaker? I thought I explained to you people that I WANT THAT! It is my favorite color and AF is here so BACK OFF. :LOL

I love that blue TDD/luxe set too , but I am trying to keep my expectations reasonable.

I think we are going to have to have some kind of hyena stash olympics after these auctions, because Pixie you are challenging the reigning champions. I have not picked my entire dream team, but I am pretty sure it would include both you and Holli.

I keep getting outbid on *everything*! Now all of it has gone up above my price range! The only thing I'm winning is the YPS felted mocs, and that's what I REALLY, REALLY want...I've been looking for a felted mocs slot for ages! Aaahhh! These auctions are getting addicting.

I'm in the process of listing a bunch of things in hopes of raising paypal for these auctions! I just had to bid on the "rebel" boys basket, it would be perfect for chandler, and I hardly ever get anything new and exciting for him!

Can you raise your maximum bid on whamchicks without bidding against yourself? I know this was discussed yesterday, but I think I went to bed too early to see the answer.

I don't know....
But I just checked and am quite impressed with the generosity of the WAHMs involved...there are currently 426 auctions listed in the charity category...and many in the general categories that are giving all or part to AFO as well!

I think I might be hoping that I do get out bid on a couple of things. I would never go to Las Vegas or Atlantic City and gamble, but keep upping my bid on auction above what I originally set aside to spend? Heck yea! I just want to WIN (insert maniacal laugh here!) :LOL

Oh!!! Look at the Baby Bloomrs Auctions. If I had a girl, I'd be all over that pink camo set. I really like the cowboy, the monkey, and the fish set. Oh, to have all three. . .I'd be in heaven. She is so talented. WOW!
