Today I thought I'd share these little wooden free standing birds I altered with Fancy Pants "Childish Things" line. ( my all time favorite line from Fancy Pants). I love these papers. I found these little wooden birds at Hobby Lobby. ( Banners and letters are also from Fancy Pants). I added the wings myself.
edged with a little "pen" stitching lol
Cute papers from the same line for the back side also.
And... I don't want to forget to share a photo of the framed silhouette I showed you a while back when I got it at the flea market. A few of you had noticed it and asked to see it closer. Well, here it is with the new paper in the back. It had a icky faded paper with a bunch of broken dried flowers that had fallen apart under the glass. I like it so much better now :)
I wanted to share some photos from Easter, but you know me... I cant decided which ones to share because I want to share them all :) So I decided I'd put them into a little video clip.
We had my family out to our cabin for Easter. You'll see the cabin(s) in the photo with all the cars parked in front of them. The two that are painted alike are ours. The little cabin on the right used to be the boys cabin as they were growning up. It's just like a little bunk house ( one room).. with bunks beds, a frig, microwave, and tv in it..but they always felt they had their own little space as they were growing up. You know, far enough from the grown ups, they felt independent..but close enough... mom could keep a eye on things :)
Just to explain.. the many photos with confetti. Diana ( our Niece ) shared a family tradition with us that she used to do growing up in Mazatlan as a child. She created all the colorful eggs you see in the video. She has been saving eggs for the last year. Opening the bottoms only as she uses them. Once they are dry, she hand paints them all and then fills them with confetti. ( covering the hole at the bottom with tissue paper). The tradition is to crack them on the persons head..but you can not throw them, you have to catch the person and then crack it on their head. Oh , you can only imagine the fun that was had with this. (not only by the "little" kids..but the "big" kids also:) They are called "Cascarones".
She put allot of hours into this project..but it was defiantly the hit of the day.
