Bento Craze

I was clicking around on flickr this morning and I came across these absolutely adorable bento lunches. They reminded me of something that my cousin Zana would do for her kids. Now I want kids so I can make them cute bento lunches! I guess I'll just have to settle for making Kevin and I cute lunches for now...

Felted Holidays

I am so into felting right now. My mother in law taught me how to knit this weekend, and I am excited to start making all sorts of adorableness. For all you non-knitters out there The Singing Bird over at Etsy is ready to hook you up. Isn't this blackbird and pumpkin the best??

Last Minute Costume Ideas

So, you need to throw a costume together for tonight? This Alfred Hitchcock inspired Bird Suit is quick and easy.

Directions: Cut out some bird shapes from black paper. Get some hot glue and attach them to your suit. Don't worry! Hot glue peels off once it's dry.
*Tip: practice your cheesy scared face in the mirror before your grand entrance

Good luck and Happy Halloween!!

Fabulous Sculptor

Wow, I just love discovering someone with this much talent. Joe Pogan makes the most amazing animals using "found metal" objects like old watches, sprockets, nuts and bolts. His goal is to create "an eye-catching, fascinating amalgamation of metal with odd nooks and crannies you can explore for hours." Check out his website here.

Welcome Allison!

As I type this, my beautiful sister is in the hospital about to give birth to a lovely baby girl. I thought this cake from the Sugar Syndicate would be a lovely gift for her, and for all my fellow bird lovers!

garden tools

I finally got around to digging out my new garden this past weekend. Now it's time to plant, and I feel inspired to organize my potting shed. These hooks will be perfect for hanging my trusty cultivator and hand trowel.
