I made my birdie
a little embroidered felt cousin.
But I think I will have to make him
a linen girlfriend to keep him company
once he moves into his cage.

Little Birdie

I ended up doing an entirely different
birdie for my old rusty cage.
This one was made with linen & a piece
of Tana Lawn Liberty print,
stuffed with polyfill.
I painted the birdie with fabric paint
using my watercolor round brushes.
I used two different greens
& white for the details.
& made him a little polymer clay beak.

All I need to do now is figure out a way
to secure him to the perch of the cage.
I'll show you when he's living in his new home.

For those of you who asked,
the fabric paint I used is called
Pebeo Setacolor

Hope you guys are having

& a wonderful spring one in the south :)

I restocked the shop
with 9 new prints yesterday!
Over the weekend my Etsy shop
reached 1000 items sold since I opened it
a little over a year ago.
I want to do a little celebrating
with this blog's second ever giveaway to thank you
for supporting my work.
You guys are amazing!

So...please leave your name, city & country
in the comment section of this post and I will randomly
draw three names next Wednesday at noon
(US Central time)
and announce the winners.
They will each get to choose a print
from my shop.

These cute bugs were made for a production company
called Curious Pictures, they hired me to do
visual development for a kids television show.
And although they were not selected,
I had so much fun creating
these little characters.

It was a lovely rainy afternoon yesterday
that I spent looking through the gorgeous pages
of a spectacular book about the flora and fauna
of the tamaulipecan region of Mexico.
A birthday gift
from my beautiful & dear friend Ana.
It's called: "La Gran Provincia Natural Tamaulipeca"
You can find more information about the book here.

My 10 year old son Daniel
made me this beautiful diorama out of paper.
It makes my day every time I look at it.
Hope your weekend is lovely.
