Owl Make Another One Too...

Here is the first of two fabric "art" pieces that I've wanted to make for the nursery. The original plan was to make one with a bird and one with a tree, but this first one ended up containing both elements. Any ideas for the second one? I want to stick with an outdoorsy theme... maybe a squirrel? That could be cute. Umm... apparently I'm having a conversation with myself right now!


It turned out looking a little more store-bought than I was expecting, but I guess that's okay. Pottery Barn would be proud. I'll post more photos when I have them both hung up in the room. Then you can get an idea of how big it is.

Hey! I met you briefy when you both used to come to Grand Canyon University to play for our students... I don't expect you to remember us.. but I have followed you since - the two of you touched my heart and really inspired me as a newly married woman... Anyways... this is just TOO cute.. when I saw this - I totally thought of some digital scrapping kits... one is called FallOut by Melissa Bennett - here is the link to a pic... http://www.sweetshoppedesigns.com/shoppe/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=16_71&products_id=3543&zensessionid=341c15b5644be86875e66f47a6fc92c9 ... anyways - I create custome blog looks and use digiatl stuff all the time - when I saw your adorable picture I thought of her stuff - might give you some inspiration. AND... I WISH that you could find somethign that cute in the stores... you can totally tell that it was custom made!

A conversation with one's self is many times the best way to come up with grand ideas!

What about something North Woodsy - like a moose!?

A mushroom would be cute, although not an animal...but very vintage. :)

owl look forward to seeing the next one...

...in other news, i love the Christmas album i ordered from ya last month. I've been listening to Emmanuel a good bit today...and that's an understatement.

After the baby comes and you all hit the road again we gotta discuss gettin y'all at my church. i mentioned it to the music minister a while back and he sounded interested, but i'm about ready to finally make it happen.

So... i take back the "moose" idea... now that I think about it, it would be pretty hard to make a moose look cute.

My newest idea is a cricket! I think it could be cute (and not scary) if done in the right way.

That is so very cute! Lucy is going to love her room as she gets older. Can't wait to see the next one you put together.
