For The Love of Birds Swap


My swap partner, Angie, loves this blue color.  I was so glad because I had this gorgeous fabric with birds on it that I knew she’d love!  I made 2 towels and a bird from the fabric.  I also made  a  nest cup with cadburry mini eggs inside, 6 gift tags, peacock notebook, bluebird peeps, and a tiny composition notebook.

Angie sent to me a wonderfull package!  It really made me cry at her generosity to me and my kids.  I posted about the presents she sent my daughters here.   Angie made me the sweetest birdnest card, birdhouse, necklace, glittered bird, tree ornament, and wall hanging.  she also sent 2 small red birds, vintage watering can,…

this is an altered bingo card that says “mother sparrow and her four little girls”  and then she made a beautiful necklace that as a bird charm and  nest charm with 4 eggs inside.  I love this so much and am touched by Angie’s thoughtfulness!

this adorable birdhouse has birds and bird sayings from a vintage childrens’ book all over it.  oh the creativity is amazing!  I feel like I got the better end of this swap… what do you think?  (retorical question)
