My Etsy Shop Has Opened!

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

I have finally opened an Etsy shop! I’ll be stocking it over the next several days. Please visit, and  tell your friends to check it out too! You’ll find beaded birds, hand-bound journals, picture frames, art and more. Here is the address:

I’ve named the shop Good Little Bluebird because at our home, when you’re doing what you’re supposed to, you’re being a good little bluebird. Going into the studio to make art qualifies!

Anything Can Happen!

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010

This Saturday our Village is having a fundraiser to benefit Buddy Baseball. They are selling and auctioning off birdhouses decorated by local artists. Guess who is participating? Yes! Me!

I had an excellent time making up my birdhouse, and hope it’ll do a good job raising money for a worthy program. It is titled “Anything Can Happen” and I made it with the pre-fab birdhouse, some wooden pieces, felt, stuffing, wire, acrylic paint and a piece of aquarium tubing. My Honey helped by drilling the hole for the tubing to go into; power tools are not my forte.

Here’s what it looks like:
