Okay, on with prettyful things. Here is what I sent to Heidi, my partner for Lori's Birdie Swap. Heidi doesn't decorate in bright colors, just lots of white with touches of blue and brown. I made her a scrapbook papered D, for her last name's initial. That gorgeous paper came from Michael's and is new there. I then made yo-yo's in varying sizes and sewed them together making a brooch that she can either leave on the letter or wear. I made the sign, the bird silhouette, the tag, bought two birds, an embroidered tea towel, and some eggs.
The sign was made from a drawer front I rescued from an old home that was being torn down. I just stenciled the word NEST on it and shabbied it up a bit.
The eggs in their little nest of spanish moss and sheet music.
I loved this towel as soon as I saw it. I should have gotten myself one. Maybe they will be there when I go back??
I made the bird silhouette from my Storybook cricut cartridge and layered the images on top of toile scrapbook paper.
Okay, thanks for looking!!
Oh, on a side note, my in-laws are moving to Chicago and are leaving tomorrow. If y'all would pray for safe travels for them that would be appreciated and also, my mother in law spilled hot coffee in her lap the other day and has 1st, 2nd, and 3rd degree burns in areas you wouldn't want to be burned so if you would pray for her comfort on that long drive, that would be great too.
