Hey !! S’up? I’ve just been hanging around, hanging out and hanging up.
Hanging around the house because of a really rotten cold. I was so desperate, I even took a bath and I never do bath’s. Ya I know, some people love to lounge around in the tub and relax. I generally find it very dull. So our new house has one of these corner tubs with jets for bubbles. It uses a decadent amount of water and I don’t plan to make it a habit but I did feel a wee bit better.

I’ve used it to wrap up some Christmas treats too. It’s cheery and funky, just the right thing for projects during the dreary doldrums of January. One of the cutest things ever is the little birdie mobile I’ve been working on. I’ve done it with all the scraps, a Martha Stewart Heart Punch, Quick Kutz Bird Punch, tape and some twine I bought at Seaside Papery in San Diego.
Using the bird die, cut out two birds for every one bird on your mobile. The wing is perforated so you can fold them down after you glue two together. I glued mine to the twine at 4 inches apart. I used a bit of tape to secure the twine in place before gluing. Because mine are Love Birds, each carries a wee gold vellum heart in its beak. Simply add one before you glue the birds together.
I love that they each seem to have their own personalities. Just like you and me, no two are alike. I tried not to get too fussy about picking two die cut birds to match, but I did want to ensure the same birds weren’t flying together on the twine.
These little Love Birds will be hung up in our Valentine display at Urban Scrapbook. When we’ve got it all together there, I’ll share another peak. I hope there’s a little love in the air wherever you are today. Hopefully you’ll still find me adorable even knowing all my hangups 😀
