Some Gifts and a Little Teaser

 Today I would like to show you the three other wonderful prizes I had won during the OWOH event. The first one is this gorgeous birdhouse, created by Kathy McElroy.

Kathy has used the coolest things to embellish the birdhouse, like a zipper, typewriter keys, pen nibs and fuses. Each side has such exciting details.

Kathy is such a talented mixed media artist and does not only create fantastic birdhouses but also very beautiful fabric collages and lots of other awesome things. Her blog My Life in Pictures is always worth a visit.

Kathy, I just love the birdhouse. Thank you so much again!

Another wonderful gift is a lovely creation from Brianne. Her blog is called Under the Florida Maples. Brianne gets a lot inspired by nature and therefore it is no surprise that she has created a series of nature keepers. The name of this sweet doll is Aviella and she is the one to watch over the birds.

Aviella’s sisters and other beautiful creations are available in Brianne’s Etsy-shop.

I’m very happy to have your sweet nature keeper around, Brianne! Thank you for letting her live with us!

Among other things, Laura Carson creates the most amazing ATCs and I was the  lucky winner of one of them. This is the beautiful ATC I had received. It has lots of 3-dimensional details which are hard to capture in a picture.

If you don’t know Laura’s blog Artfully Musing yet, you should hop over for a visit. She does not only share her and other artist’s creations but also great tutorials and free images.

Thank you, Laura! I’m very happy to own one of your beautiful ATCs.

In my last post I showed you the pretty heart I had won from Anni over at Fabric Art, but I totally forgot to add the picture  of the beautiful card she had included. I certainly would like to make up for this lapse. Just today I moved the lovely fabric card from my studio into the bathroom, after we had done some redecorations over the last couple of days. Now it gets displayed on a shelf there.

I have been working on a swap with my dear friend Dorthe lately and now it’s time to tease her a little bit ;-).

Are you ready, sweetie? Here is a glimpse of what you will find in my spring themed package:

For now I can’t show more but after Dorthe has received the parcel, I will certainly reveal everything :-).

Have a wonderful weekend, dear friends!

HUGS,
