A previous clue I gave you was ‘tweet.’ And you have indeed seen them around blogland before. And you will love this.

EEEK. I know! CUTE! And  I couldn’t be more pleased to introduce to you the maker of the birds,

My beautiful blog friend Denise from Living Life Creatively!

The birds are totally blogworld famous.  And now we get to be a part of this special magic!

Denise doesn’t sell the birds. She makes them because she just loves to. (maybe you ought to etsy them, Denise!!) And she’s offering a lucky recipient a lovely bird for those that enter SNS #9 this weekend.

I asked Denise to tell us a little about why she makes them. She says,

“When I was a little girl, evenings were spent sitting on the porch swing with my grandmother, playing cards and waiting for the ice cream man to come by. All the other neighbors could be found on their porches as well. It was what we did in the city. It was how we *did* community.

That was a long time ago. These days, we *do* community quite differently. Even though I still live in *the city* and actually have an appropriate porch for sitting, I rarely connect with folks that way. My community can be found right here in blog world. It’s where I go for fellowship, inspiration, encouragement, and even accountability. Sheesh, I wouldn’t accomplish hardly anything if I didn’t have people like Donna giving me a deadline. *grin*

That said, I receive so much from my friends through blogging, it’s nice to be able to give something back. If one of my birds can bring a smile to someone’s face, then it will have the same effect on mine. The fact that somebody would actually want something that I made–all by myself–is amazing in itself.”

I was pretty excited to accept Denise’s kind offer because I adore these little soft creatures! Thanks so much Denise!

AND, she has a full blown tutorial on how to make these sweet things! I’ll be giving you that link in a moment.

First, a little more on Denise. Not only does she know her bird stuff, she’s also quite the decorator and crafter.

You may remember this box that she brought over to SNS. I love how she morphed it to resemble a drawer with a purpose! Cute!

Have you seen her decoupaged staircase? Cool idea!

I ’bout died when I saw her bird tassel!!! I LOVE this! Tutorial here too.

She’s clever too. Love the muffin tin storage for her dresser!!

How about decking out a lovely white pumpkin into something even lovelier?

One of my all time fav ideas of Denise’s is when she decorated this interior door with artwork. LOVE it!

You can plainly see this gal is uber talented. Make sure you take your time and browse around her blog. Thanks again Denise!

  1. I finally finished my project. I made a self rotating can rack, and have included directions and pictures on my blog.

    The birds are too fun, they made me crack up. The red and white one would look right at home perched on the branches of our Christmas Tree.

    My project is #1 on the list, and my email address is [email protected]

  2. Oh my goodness, too cute! My project is #2 and I’m loving both the green and the white with red bird. Do I seriously have to just pick one. Hmmmm. Okay, I’ll go with the red and white since its Christmas but I adore them both. My email is on my profile and I wish EVERYONE’s was. It makes communication to comments sooooo much easier doesn’t it? Thanks for hosting a great party :).

  3. I am fairly new to your blog and am so glad that I found it. I love seeing your projects and all of the ones posted at your party.

    Those birds are seriously cute. I am off to read about how to make them!

  4. Hi Donna! LOVE the birds, they are so adorable! My fav is the red one, he would be so stinking cute in my kitchen!!! 🙂 I have the perfect spot just waiting for him! I am Lucky #13 today! Now time to go back and bookmark Denise as on of my fav’s! Happy Saturday!

  5. Oh my goodness… I am “a crazy bird lady.” Therefore… any bird is a good bird and needs a home. I love to collect little birdies and these are divine. I am going to the link to learn how to make one. THanks for the tip. I love your blog. I had to become a follower. Love all the links to peruse and get my craftiness on. Very inspiring. Thanks. Nancy

  6. Hi Donna,
    You asked a question about my metal reindeer. You can easily cut the metal with scissors. It is almost as thin as aluminum foil. That is why I ended up backing it with cardstock so it wouldn’t get all bent and ripped. I forgot to mention this in my post, but I brushed the copper deer with an antiquing glaze so the copper wasn’t so shiny.

  7. Wow! That was some introduction. I think you’re my new best friend. You may be my only best friend! Don’t forget to email me your address and color choice as well. I will probably not get to mail them until the end of the week because I’m going to my son’s graduation from boot camp this week. I plan on sewing more birds in the car on the drive. I don’t waste a minute, no sirree! 🙂

  8. Can I just say that I am So glad I stumbled upon your blog…and I love these birds as well! It’s great to be able to be inspired by so many talented people! I am #62 (photo canvas decoupage) and I love the red bird the most. My email is [email protected]

  10. My project is #69… only semi-DIY, but I just found your blog so now I have more motivation to post my other DIY projects! I LOVE the white and red bird. Looks like winterberries… just perfect. Thanks for the chance!

  11. Thanks for hosting again. I’m trying to get thru all these posts and get some great last minute ideas for Christmas. That green bird is made from the same material I recovered my desk chair in. Is it fate? I hope so. I’m #64. I think my e-mail’s on my profile but here it is just in case [email protected]
