Let's see if this works....






I found this wonderful bird mold on ebay. It's really designed to make ceramic pieces but I wanted it for something else as I don't make ceramics or have a kiln. I wanted to try pressing paper clay into each side, join the two pieces and have a beautiful little bird ornament....here's my first attempt! We'll see how he dries....I love his chubbiness ~



I'm still fluffing ~ now that the bathroom is completely painted and cured, I've been on the search for a beautiful shower curtain but still haven't found the right one. I know I could sew one but just don't want to really....right now, I have cream walls, chocolate colored towels and rug....

I hope your week is going great and all of your Thanksgiving preparations are coming together!!
Wishing you a great Tuesday sweet friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

Hi Dawn:
I love your chubby little bird. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

I linked to your blog in my post yesterday about the Artist Classes. I also used your discount offer to sign up for them myself. I can't wait to try some of the wonderful tutorials I've already downloaded! I hope some of my followers will sign up and take advantage of the offerings, too! Thanks for your generosity.

Blessings, my friend.

Hi Dawn,
Love your adorable little bird. You never cease to amaze me! Have fun hunting for a shower curtain. I have one that I picked up at the Goodwill with chocolate leaves, birds and then some aqua on white I think. I haven't used it for anything yet , but couldn't pass it up.
Happy Thanksgiving!
Blessings~

Musing of a Patched Heart said...

Hi Dawn! It has been toooooooo long since I have visited! Your blog is wonderful and I love the molded birds! I have never heard of paper clay I am sooo intrigued where do you find such a thing? Your creations just amaze me. I am truly inspired. Thanks for sharing your gifts and talents with me this morning. I won't make it so long between visits. Blessings to you, Heather

Jane said...

Dawn, the bird looks darling - you are so clever! Thanks for these beautiful images too, as well as those the past few days. You are so generous.

Have you looked at sheets for the shower curtain? I've made several from sheets - all you need is the holes but you could use clips to get you through this week & then make the buttonholes later - if you found a sheet that you liked, that is :)

Happy Thanksgiving Day to you and all your family!

Wonder what you will do with him?

Love the bird mold. I found a chocolate duck mold at an antique sale, but hadn't thought of using for other things beside chocolate. Now you have my mind going.

SharDon Exclusives said...

Your chubby birdie is precious. Let us know how she dries. Does she stay the same shape? It looks like china or you have a very goooood camera...lol
I also appreciate the botanticals.
Have a sweet memorable Thanksgiving holiday. I am personally thankful for you, my very first blogger buddy,
