Hi Stamping Friends,

At the end of last week I took a class to create a mosaic bird house.  I thought I would share with you the results.  Some of the people who took the class are the same people who attend my stamping classes.  I jokingly asked them how they were made to pay attention to the instructor and quietly follow his directions.  My classes tend to be happily noisy and some times I try to whistle to get their attention.  You get the drift.  Maybe it helped with the instructor being a guy.  Stamping isn’t the only craft that interests me.  In fact I don’t think I’ve yet to find a craft I don’t want to tackle.

The shutters on our bungalow style home are bright turquoise.  I painted the roof and base of the birdhouse the same color as our shutters.  The next step was caulking.  We used silicone caulk which takes 24 hours to dry.  We spread the caulk over an entire side then worked with an assortment of stones and glass that were provided.  The lady who sat across from me said she is not crafty and “can’t do anything”.  I reminded her the Titanic was built by professionals and the Ark was built by amateurs.  Remember which one sank ?  Her bird house turned out beautiful.  Never be afraid to try something new.  So here is my end result.  My next one will be much more ornate now that I have the hang of it.

PAWS TO PONDER

Hugs and happy stamping,  MB
