CONTEST NOW CLOSED! Blog Candy- 200 posts-Spring is For The Birds-More added!


#5 Just added a pair of bird and nest earrings I put together with Swarovski crystals on Sterling silver ear wires.

#4 I had no idea I'd be adding more so soon. I put together this journal today using images from theibrakeforstamps Time to stamp line. Added some vintage flowers I rescued from an old hat and some vintage lace.


#1 A Nesting box made in a cigar box, I can't take full credit for this. A couple of weeks ago I won a tutorial from Dawn at thefeatherednest. I just changed it up a bit. Thanks Dawn!

#2 Nest- letters stand 5", collage with decorative papers, music papers,nest,twigs, butterflies well you get the picture. Stamps by.ibrakeforstamps These would look so cute on a shelf!

#3 A bird house soldered glass pendant.complete with nest, egg and bird charm.

I found you through the Feathered Nest Blog. I also live in the Treasure Valley, in Boise.

Your work is absolutely gorgeous. I've been trying to get into some collage/alter art work but just have had much initiative yet. I've made a couple of things but they haven't made it all the way to my blog yet.

I'm going to be staying here a little longer and then I'll be back again to see more of you beautiful creations.

Blessings,
Christine
