Collages from old Nat Geos!
Trying new things is such immense fun. My whole adolescence/twenties have been spent with my nose in these magazines, and I love how its uses extend well beyond the inherent awesomeness.
Also, Ms.Goodall feeding the fishies! I’ll always regret the day I didn’t get to ask her a question during an audience session, when she visited my undergrad campus some years ago. Sigh. Good times.
Found the most beautiful hand-painted wooden bird beads at the craft shop recently…went slightly mad and grabbed a handful on impulse.
I’d been wanting to make a mobile for a while…what better to do that with than birds! Added some feathers that I made with yarn, following a really cool tutorial on the Oh So Pretty blog. A twig as the perch and some transparent fish wire later: A BIRD MOBILE!! (happy dance)
Such JOY waking up to these guys fluttering over my bed :)
Personalized sketchbook for a friend.
Been wanting to try embroidery on leather for ages now. And yes, bending a needle out of shape was well worth it :)
Chasing birds, my new-found pastime. Anything to promote side businesses! :)
