Feather Me

Over the weekend I took a break from making paper birds to - make paper birds?  I know, I know - it's crazy!  My fingertips needed a little break from folding so I decided to tackle two, yes TWO, other projects and finished them (well, mostly finished because I still haven't decided how I'm going to display the non-folded paper birds).
 These paper birds were made using a pattern that appeared in the program for 2010's Crafty Supermarket.

My next project involves my favorite MALMA mirrors from IKEA.  Some of these mirrors were purchased at IKEA Palo Alto back in 2004 and were originally painted green!  Now I just keep recovering them to fit my needs.  Two of the mirrors were already blue so the rest just needed to be covered.  I needed a visual vertical because my ceilings are so high and i though these cute square mirrors would look good above my cute square stove.  They also go with my new blue and white graphic print rugs from Target.  Greek Isles anyone?

I've now moved two more projects off my future project list (but added one more involving how to display the non-folded paper birds)

EDIT: I completed one other project that weekend only to realize that Jamie was working on a similar project - A picture/art wall!


  1. Whoohoo! Congrats on project finishing! I made progress this weekend too. But of course more ideas swarmed into my head as I was working. I think I'm a schizophrenic project-doer. I keep jumping around from one to another.

  2. Yeah! It might take me a while to get my frames filled - hell, I still have to finish hanging them but that is pretty funny that we were working on the same thing on the same weekend. But really, are you surprised sister?
