Hello? Helloooooooo? Excuse me, but have you seen my mojo?
I seem to have misplaced it.
For real, people. I've been on a bit of a hiatus lately. Busy work, busy at home, and this old gal is TIRED. No joke, I was in bed with the lights out before 8:00 last night. I rule.
But right here, right now, I'm back.
I found these little birdies at Hobby Lobby on sale for about a buck and a quarter.
Their big feet made me smile, but the swirly wire wings and creepy yellow eyes just weren't doin' it for me.
But they were so cheap, and their overall shape was good and simple; I knew I could figure something out.
I started by taking off those wings (I just kept bending the wire until they snapped).
From there, I didn't even bother painting them. I just used the same technique as I did here, with my Anthropologie-Inspired Pears (even used pages from the same old book, haha)
and gave my birds the book-treatment to update their look and make them a little less "Halloween" and a little more "year round cute".
But I kept their big feet page-free because they still do make me smile. :)
So, it appears I still have the urge to cover the earth in book pages.
Who knew? :)
