Crowns & Birds

Ready for some cutesy cutes? Michaels has these packages of 12 wood (pressed wood I think actually) shapes in various styles. They're about 4 or 5 inches tall. A friend on Altered Gypsy suggested a swap. My girls and I decided to participate. The girls traded with the one lady's dd. I sent my little pieces up north and one to England. I always hope that the pieces make it to their new homes in one-piece so to speak. I saw that Michaels has a 3 or 4 foot version of this crown. I just might need to get one for my art wall. I am, after all, a Contessa by choice. hehe

We hope our recipients love them.

P.S. Want to know what I had for dinner? New recipe is up on my foodies blog.

P.P.S. Is it me or has there been a lag in all artsy mags as of late. I feel like I haven't received an issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors or Somerset Studio in forever! Maybe I have and just have misplaced my copies. Does anyone recommend any new mags for me to see? Always interested.

I enjoyed reading Art Journals that is out in stores. It's hard to find but worth reading :)
