It's Nice to be Nice...Pay It Forward!
This idea caught my eye just now and so I am on board before it slips my mind! Thanks to Sharon at from my heart primitives, I am joining in and giving away 5 handmade things (birds) to the first five people who leave a comment on this post. In turn each person agrees to blog about this on their blog and give away five items that are hand made, and so on it goes! A grand and lovely idea.
Yesterday I came across two sad birds that I made a few years ago. My technique has improved, although I must say these are pretty great right out of the gate. I'm going to pick apart their tails and add more volume, reattach bead eyes and string a brand new hanger and these two will be ready to fly. They look much like starlings although they are primarily white. One has a quote: Without constancy there is neither love, friendship, nor virtue in the world! Addison; and on the other side of the same bird is the word 'aspire.' The other bird says "We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey." Kenji Miyazawa.
So leave a comment and be in the first five to do so and you'll get a bird. I will make 3 new ones as well (they are already half way made).
Creative hugs to you all, Norma
