Birds

November 24, 2012 § Leave a comment

Last week I did a short holiday craft show. I haven’t sold at one for a couple of years. I still had an overstock of hats to sell and I earned a little cash, which is always nice. My husband has encouraged my to market my birds more. I made a wall installation that we love. I didn’t have a way to hang branches at the show, but I’m trying for craigslist exposure now. My basket of birds.

Modern nursery decor.

What I see today

So much to do. So little time. Though with the homeschooling I am strangely more productive then when the kids were in school.

Birds for mobiles. I have a craft show in Nov.

Four baby chairs and 7 adult size to refinish.

This amazing pile of Afghani beaded discs. I can’t decide how to use them. The best wall garland ever? They smell like tea.

A cuckoo clock to gift, here is the primer stage.

Pinterest project- birds on a wire

April 20, 2012 § 2 Comments

Birds have been in vogue for a few years now though they might be on their way out. I love the bird mobiles that various creatives have made; you can see some versions here and here. There is a simple and stylish FREE pattern for making these little fabric chirpies found here on my pinterest “to make” board via spool. Instead of a mobile I made a wall installation with three bamboo poles, found at Target on clearance, and a few brackets from the hardware store. The birds are great for using up scraps and are stuffed with thrifted stuffing, so they cost almost nothing. And my guest room has a large and cheerful flock of visitors. This gallery has 30 birds and they are adhered to the bamboo with hot glue, which is sturdy but removable.

A cup of globalness

Thrifted to stash. Oh that stash! I struggle to keep it from growing too big to keep up with. Future projects, items that “just need a sanding and a coat of spray paint.” The tin measuring cup will join the others in my collection. I think I’m up to ten now, and I don’t know how they will be used in future. But they are cute! I’m thinking mobile or some sort of hanging installation. And the globe will be stenciled with something travel-y and globe-y. Painting is not my forte. Takes me hours of planning and graphing, but what an exciting end result it will be!

Hanging vines

February 29, 2012 § 1 Comment

Have you seen the Pottery Barn kids store this month? Lots of brown twisted paper trees and hanging twine vines.  This is a store display re-create. It would be way more effective with many more, but the kids were pleased. And they get another lesson that you don’t have to buy most things, you can make them!
