Etsy Inspired # 122 - Modern Bird


It's Etsy Inspired time!!! And boy do we have an awesome shop for you this week. Our featured shop is Modern Bird. This shop is full of handcrafted silver jewelry designed by Laura Flavin. Her work includes themes of love, nature, peace, and growth. 

I was inspired by the Gabriella giraffe necklace. I'm still in an altered project kind of mood. I started off with this...


 And ended up with this...

I'm getting projects ready for upcoming craft shows and made this altered baby bucket using the cutest wooden & felt giraffe that I found at Michael's craft store. 

I also added some colorful trim to the top and bottom.

Here's how you can play along with Etsy Inspired:

♥  Find an item that you like from Modern Bird.
♥  Create some cuteness!
♥  Link your creation up to EIC by Friday, January 21st. 

And look at this AWESOME prize up for grabs. The winner will receive this beautiful Petite Little Bird Necklace. (wish I could win...) :(
But wait...there's more! There's a second prize up for grabs. Our Sponsor - Kutz - is also giving away a Silhouette cut-out. You can see their beautiful cuts here.
