Henrietta's Nest

We had a family of six join us this spring. The parents made a lovely nest behind our porch swing and four babies were hatched. Last Saturday, all four were in the nest and by Monday, only one remaining, waiting for the nerve to fly away. I saw him being fed (maybe for the last time), the family was gone the next day.

This was so much fun to make. I can't wait to try it again!

Artsy Handbags

"You ought to be in Pictures" bag.

Artsy Handbags

I thought I would share some pictures of the bags that I made this past week. The "boots" bag I made almost 2 years ago from a pair of cowboy boots. Solid Gold is so fun, makes me want to wear a black dress and go out for dinner. I hope you enjoy these!

Walking on Sunshine

As the sunshine has appeared for spring and summer, I realized I needed a new summer bag....I'm calling it Sunshine.

Sunday Fun

Created this sign for my moo cards and to inspire me to create. Had much fun on Sunday making it!

Art Sculpture Cross

For Easter, our church presented a challenge of creating a sculpture of a cross. I used license plates from Nebraska and Michigan and mounted them to a rugged board with old nails. The map is a city map of Jerusalem. The radio face has a knob that plays "In Christ Alone" when turned (thanks goes to my dad for helping me figure that one out).
