Today we're hoppin' along sharing some great gift ideas for you. It's never too early to start thinking about holiday gifts - or gifts for any occasion, for that matter! At the end of this post, I'll have links for all the hop stops, please visit all the blogs and comment...we'll be choosing random bloggers to choose random comments for the prizes...so the more comments the better your chance!
For my project today, I'm sharing the bird house I made for a friend. She collects the little humble abodes, and I wanted to make one to add to her collection. This birdhouse was also part of Michaels' Stamptember event. All the supplies to make this project are available at Michaels. After I painted this wooden birdhouse with a cream colored paint, I dabbed paint on my Stampendous Cling Jumbo Peony and Lone Bird stamps and stamped them directly on the birdhouse. When the paint was dry, I added the little picket fence around it and added a few silk flowers.
I have to say I really like the way it turned out. My youngest son, fell in love with it too, and even asked if he could keep it in his bedroom - which amazed me since he usually freaks out about the color pink (it's for girls only, you know!) So, I think I'll be making another one of these for his room.
Here's the list of the others girls that are playing along today. Don't forget to check them all out, and leave a little love along the way - you never know who will have prizes to give out! You just may be a lucky winner!
AND don't forget our Saturday Challenge continues - We're sharing embossing techniques all month! Here's what we've been working on (most recent inspiration first):
