Bad Birds & a Shop Update

Finally things are starting to settle back into a normal routine and I have been working on some new items for the shop that will be up soon. At the moment I do have the new 2013 calendars up which you can see here and if you purchase one before 15 January you will also receive a copy of the Hello 2013 cards free, no code needed. This is what they look like:


And of course I have another layout to share with you. This one is called Bad Birds and there is a bit of a story behind it...

These corella's have been around our house morning and evening squawking and generally shredding our wattle tree to pieces. I just had to take a photo to do a page about them so I grabbed the camera and went and took a few shot but as you can see they didn't come out very close as I just had the regular lens on. I decided that it didn't matter and I would take more the next day with the telephoto lens...


Now these birds had been there for the best part of two weeks, every morning and evening so I had the camera set up for the next night and they didn't come. In fact they haven't been back since! On closer inspection of the wattle tree we saw they had ripped off all the seed pods and as there was nothing left to eat they had moved on. They are still around the neighbour hood and I can actually hear them as I am typing this.


Still loving the Heidi Swapp Colour Magic letters and also I used one of my own journal cards for the story inside the little striped bag. 

Thanks for stopping by,
