Cardinal Craft!!

one of my favorite crafts at the moment is my northern birds from my home state of Connecticut!1
I LOVE to draw, so I made up these patterns by looking out my window at my red cardinals!! I enjoy drawing from nature for my crafts.
I just draw the bird pattern on cardboard, I made two sizes this time.
Then I use red felt and cut it out using the pattern as my guide.
After cutting it out, I draw in a few details in black permanet marker to help it look more realistic. Sometimes I add a little paint color and glitter.
Then I hand sew the two peices together and stuff it with stuffing material from a craft store before sewing it completely closed.
I use heavy thread to make the hanging loop, and voila!! a cardinal comes to life.
They're fun and easy for me to make and they are inexpensive, one square of felt makes two larger birds.
They make great christmas ornaments and gifts. Enjoy!!!!

Barbie's Special Day!!!!

 We decided to celebrate BARBIE'S BIRTHDAY by invitng some of her friends over for a Beach party Bubble Bath Bash!!
March 9, 1959 Barbie dolls appeared in stores in the U.S. I vividly remember my dad buying me my  first Barbie!! It was love at first sight!!! Thank goodness I still have some of my old friends, zebra bathing suit and all!!!
The happy times I spent with my sister having many great adventures, including  learning about fashion styles and  matching color and design, are some of my favorite memories. My red flare velvet outfit ( coat, hat bag, wow!!) remains one of my favorite outfits ever!!!!
So, I was only to happy to share in throwing the current Barbies a Bash to honor their birthday!!!

Thanks for the memories!!!!!Let the good times roll!!!!!
