Feather Your Nest

The tags reads... Don't let life ruffle your feathers! These words remind me to have faith and carry on and not let Life get me down.
I enjoyed added a little whimsy to this burlap feathered bird by giving her a hat.
I started with a large 8 inch wooden spool I picked up in an antique store. Added dried grass beneath the nest along with twigs from my garden, rusty stars and soft feathers. Tied string around the spool to hold the tag. It sit upon a painted paper doily. With more feathers and a small bird cage charm my creation was finished.
Thanks for peeking in on me! Please comment if you enjoyed this creation.

Spring is coming!

Hi to all my blog Friends. I've been a bit busy over the last 6 months and wasn't getting much craft time in. I'm so happy to say I'm back. I missed visiting with all my crafty friends and sharing what we create. I missed dipping my fingers in inks and paints, sorting through papers and flowers for that prefect look. Scrapbooking has always been an outlet that has fed my soul and I'm loving the time I now have to get back into filling that void.

Let me start with sharing this card I've made. It's winter here in the Northwest and raining quite often which makes me long for warmer Spring days. I've pulled out a box of goodies collected over the years of little feathered birds, tiny plastic eggs, moss in 6 different types, twigs from my garden, leaves from the trees and many found feathers. These say "Spring" to me.
Using ink spray from Ranger in Festive Berries, Worn Lipstick, Picket Fence and one of my favorite Prima stamps with Butterflies I created the background. I added Prima flowers and two of those tiny plastic speckled eggs, along with a white fluffy feather. I then took a chipboard oval and covered in with paper and added the words "Enjoy Life", which is a wonderful saying to remember daily.

Please leave me a comment on what you look forward to in the Spring time.
Many hugs to you my friends,
