owls + sun = don't go together

Thanks everyone for the get well wishes. After two days of rest, I am feeling a little better, not quite 100% but I am on my way there. I did get to work on a little something. Come on, being sick couldn't keep me away from making at least one thing! 

This is going to a sweet little K who will be celebrating her 2nd birthday with a hootin' (is that even a word?) fantabulous party this Saturday. I hope she (and her mama) love it...

So at first, I made a little, teeny mistake. I was super proud and showing my Babe-iliscious what I made, but then he told me, "Ruby, owls come out at night." Oh... yeah. I forgot. 

Now see where the moon is, I had a cute little sun with a vintage button, but I forgot that minor detail (thanks Benny!). I had to remove my cute little sun and put an equally sweet little moon. A perfect little moon for a perfect little owl. Good thing I put the moon, cause maybe Mr. Owl would sleep through the party if the sun stayed out! 

I have a few other ideas for more crowns that stem from this. I can't wait to try it out, but I probably won't get to it until next year. I already have a long list of projects for next year, but good thing I will be closing shop for January (maybe even February). It will be time to try some new things. 

My body is now telling me it's time for bed.

Happy December everyone!!!

  6. what's up with owls? our school mascot is owls so all of our teachers and staff collect them and i noticed that they're really "in" right now? am i missing something? i'll need to get some owl stuff from some of you handmade people. in fact, kekoa is wearing a handmedown owl jumper today made by gymboree that our friend used with her son b/c of our school mascot.

    Amy- I have a flickr account but I am not sure how to use it, so I haven't tried. I could never figure out how to get the little thumbnails from flickr on my page... maybe you could help me.

    Iris- yeah, I think owls are big right now. even anthropologie has some owl holiday decor. You should get something for kekoa! that is funny that everyone from your school is into owls cause of the mascot... that's cute!
