There's something about birds that rest with thier tails up, or hyper birds like jays and cardinals that hop around and flick up their tails... I just like them!
Okay, it's time for bed.
I worked super hard on a birthday present for my bro today, and I WANT to post it, but he could be reading this, so I will refrain. I am SO excited about it, though. It turned out FAB, truly.
I worked on a TON of swap projects today...So unfortunately, I can't post everything I made today :( I will someday, once they're all sent out to my swap buddies. I'd hate to ruin the surprise!Here are a couple of thingies I can post! I carved two more stamps today! I needed some fishy things for papercrafting, so I did these guys up.
This fish turned out great, I think! My favorite part is his front flipper. I have a feeling I'm going to be using this one a lot for all kinds of things...

I made a banner as decoration for our Young Women's room at church! It was pretty plain in there, and the leaders agreed it needed a little spice. I had the idea on Thursday night at the Stake training meeting... So here it is, DONE! I used that watercolor texture I painted a few nights ago, along with another sheet of it... Cut it all up in 2" by 2" squares, then gluesticked em to twinchie bases made from recycled cereal boxes! I had the pre-cut letters, which was awfully convenient. I had to paint them with a a white acrylic wash to up the contrast, though. Add some sequins and BAM! Pizzazz!
