Owl pins

The colors are off a little and it's hard to tell the true colors so I will try to get better pics but these hand pressed clay pins are for sale...

These thin little guys are just $7.50 and measure about 1 inch. The one on the left is a light mint green with silver brushed on the details and the other is a plum color with silver detailing.

These guys are much thicker and measure just a little over an inch and are $15.00. Shipping fees are $2.50.
The left side is a deep plum with silver detailing, the top one is light mint green with silver detailing, the middle is a deep rose color and the bottom one is a pale pink with copper detailing.
Just email me if you are interested I hope to get these and some other stuff posted on easy this week.

Mtg day ={

So for work I'm in Ohio for a meeting ALL day but the sad part is...we are 10 minutes from tipp city, Ohio. If you haven't been to this little town it's the cutest little place to go antiquing and the coldwater cafe has the best food. There's even a cute little coffee shop with comfy chairs and sofas to get a cup of Joe or a hot tea. So anyway I will be wishing all day to get out early to go and check things out again.
P.s. It is also the place where the workt by hand workshop is held. I hope everyone has a great day.

An update on the birdies all 3 hatched and now they are getting some feathers. They are chirping now but I don't think their eyes are open. It's hard to get a picture and they are laying on top of each other.

You can barely see the beak on one of them on the edge of the nest.

Sleepless in k-town

Went to granny bees tonight and now my brain is a buzzin...I can't sleep!!! Laying here with my note pad so I can jot down my thoughts. We have been working on appliqued beeskeps to practice our stitches on. So my brain started thinking about other shapes this could be done with and I came up with quite a few. Sue spargo did leaves a few years back and now shesnworking on birds which is one shape I had thought of about a year ago but tonight I had more come to mind...owls, mushrooms, skulls and squares. Maybe even triangles and circles. I just can't stop thinking of all the possibilities. It's a project you can start and work on as you wish, pick it up and put it down to come back to later and when they are all done you can leave them all on 1 piece or cut them out and appliqué them onto a bigger piece as part of the embellishment. Just so many ideas and uses for them.

Also I drew up my logo for my birds of a feather project. I just need to get things Rollin to get it started or maybe it's just an idea I will always want to happen. It's hard finding time for my craft with work being so demanding right now.

Also this is on lined paper maybe because of how my brain works I need for something to be on the paper when I draw. I've tried on a blank piece of paper and it's like my brain locks and nothing happens but paper with lines I can doodle away on. Sometimes chaos stirs my soul.
I hope everyone's had a great Wednesday.

A little woody

So today I thought was going to be a relaxing day here on the home front...but the other half changed that plan. The morning started with the normal house work then turned into a little honey do list while the other half mowed. The leg is finally feeling better after 2 wks of nursing it. I did some trimming, watered plants, cleaned up the neighbors dog poop ( so annoying), and wrapped a gift for a dear friend.

So the other half decided that we need a project for the afternoon(no relaxing and taking a nap for me)
We went from this...

To this...

Now we want to decorate it with something. This would be so we can have some privacy from the neighbor (ya the one with the dog who roams and poops in my yard). Eveybodys got one in their neighborhood. Any way we really like the wall but can't decide what kinda art work or paint we want to do.
So this was my wild Wednesday how was yours?
P.s. The bushy kids are gettin haircuts tmrw
