The Birdies go “Tweet”

I am soooo ready for spring and to hear the little “tweet tweet” of our cute feathered friends. Birds seem to be an inspiration at this time of the year for many crafters and artists as they create new designs for 2010.

I use birds often in my designs because they make me think of the beautiful and warm, springtime weather. Here is one of my acrylic albums decorated with what I call....”Zany Birds & Flowers”.

The cover is designed with whimsical circles, jewels, a bursting star, and of course a little “bling bling”. Acrylic albums are sturdy enough to stand on their own. They can stand on a coffee table, bookcase, or desk. They are sure to add a little flair to your home d├ęcor.

While browsing Etsy the other day I came across these two cute little birdies from Felt Me Up Designs. Aren't they ADORABLE!

Mel created these adorable love birds. She is a felt maker and fiber artist based in Scarborough, UK. She also makes wedding cake toppers, creatures, bags, purses, tea cosies, slippers, embroidered felt art works, and felt sculptures. Check out her shop when you have time for more cuteness!

If you'd like to be featured on my blog please post a comment below about this post. Do you know of another shop that features birds? Do you make cute birdies? Let us know. We'd be happy to check out your shop! TWEET! TWEET!
