The Mystery of the Disappearing BirdFeeder..and random craftiness

Before I go into my Sunday Share...
and one of my favoritest people in the world
has added the
So you can buy them there also!!
Hey there and Happy Sunday!!
When we first moved out here to Heaven...
I mean Deale
I noticed pretty much everyone has bird feeders,
quite highly sophisticated bird feeders I might add
well, I'm cheap for starters, and when I first started looking I couldn't find the highly sophisticated birdfeeders
(i.e. I looked in one place and all
they had were these bell shaped feeder things for like 2 bucks)
I'm nothing if not resourceful, (and a lazy shopper)
So I bought a few of them, thinking I'd have enough to feed the neighborhood and enjoy my new hobby of birdwatching on our deck with my morning coffee.
I put one out, and after a day or two the little birdies started showing up
all cute and tweety, pecking little seeds off the bell
on the third day, I went out on the deck to have my morning coffee
and the feeder was completely gone,
I mean, no trace of it left.
I was gloating to myself,
I don't need any fancy birdfeeders..the birds like our house better,
look at that they ate it all already
So I put out another one, and this time it disappeared much more quickly,
like less than 12 hours...
ok, so at this point I'm pointing fingers at my husband and the teenager
Very Funny guys,
no way they ate it that fast...
So I put out the third one, in the afternoon
a couple hours go by and Rob goes over to the window and laughs
"Mystery Solved"
I look out the window and see this little bird feeder thief

Once he got it small enough, which I might add,
was not much smaller that this,
he picked it up by the plastic piece on the bottom and took off with it.
Wish I caught that picture,
but he figured out the dogs were watching him
and he took off faster than I could snap it.
So we are now the proud owners of one of those highly sophisticated bird feeders, complete with the squirrel feeder on top,
and the fattest squirrel in Maryland.

I snapped these couple photos on Father's Day, we went out to Linner
(yes I meant Linner = lunch+dinner) with some friends of ours.

Aren't my men so handsome?
I know I'm a little subjective..:)

One of the coolest little local shops ever,
Cottage Chicks is selling some of my wares,
cards, bookmarks, the little birdhouses, and some framed art pieces
which just tickles me to death...
Here are a couple of the pieces I made for the store

and this has now been a novel length post
thanks for hanging in there and have an awesome Sunday!!!

I've got a Pocket Full of Sunshine....

This is post #2 for see the EAD Designs Weekly steal
Don't forget to scroll down to the next post!
Welcome to the
Pocket Full of Sunshine Hop!!!
I'm so glad you dropped in!!
I thought I'd use some mood music today...
I went a little off the beaten path with my project
and altered a birdhouse. I'm sure you've probably all seen these
cute little naked birdhouses at Joann's or whatever your local craft store is.

I primed the birdhouse with Gesso and then painted it with a layer of vanilla acrylic paint and then a layer of sky blue acrylic paint. I then applied papers from the Pocketfull of Sunshine Kit,
available on your right, for 35$ with free shipping!!
After that I sanded it everywhere to give it that vintagey cottageish look.
I painted over the whole thing with a medium transparent glaze.
I then added the flowers and painted the birds from the BIRDS OF A FEATHER KIT also available on your right.

I think it turned out pretty cute!

To see the contents list for the kits just click on the

The naked wreath and the little angel were 2.00 at Joann's
on some new Memory Box paper from
Paper Maniac, cut them out,
then glued them to some chipboard
cut them out again and sanded the edges for a smoother finish.
That ribbon came off of a gift that I received.
This ended up being a really nice gift for a really good friend of mine who just PCS'd to Las Vegas.
