Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Fairy Birdhouse Book Box

   Just before Christmas last year I shared a birdhouse book box that I had made for a friend. At that time I was also working on one for myself. A lot of other projects got in between me and finishing my own Birdhouse Book Box. Saturday I pushed everything away and pulled together the parts for my box that were scattered all over my studio. I made up my mind it was time to finish it for me. I love fairies so I was really happy to find this one at Micheal's. She was in the toy department. She was supposed to be riding a cardinal but her cardinal was gone so I picked her up for half price. She was wearing mustard yellow tights, a teal green tunic, and black shoes. I brought her home and pulled off  her pitiful little wings and then I painted her pearl blue, with dark blue shoes. I pulled apart a Dollar Store headband with sparkly blue fabric and blue butterflies on the antennas. I cut the fabric off and made her a sparkly blue tunic. Then I used one of the blue butterflies for her wings. The bird's tail was green so I painted it blue to match my fairy. I'm so happy that I finally finished my book box. I'm real happy with the way it turned out.
