Whatcha Working On Wednesday . . .



Man, what a dreary day! It has been raining all day - not that we don't need the rain but it sure makes for a sleepy day! I have been so busy getting everything ready for Fall! I have been working day and night on new items for the store and website. I couldn't wait for Wednesday so I could show all of you!


Anyway, I love crows. I guess everyone into prims probably does! I wanted some to "stand around" on shelves, tables, etc. I have been looking into the rusty bed springs but they seem to get a bit expensive. I hate spending so much in material - then you have to charge more for the item just to recoop your costs! I started looking around the house for something to make them stand on their own . . .and then it came to me - I have a whole bag of old wooden spools that I bought a year or so ago. These would be perfect!


My final project . . .

I gave them some cute buttoned eyes and I think they are adorable! I think I am going to make a few more (without the spools) and put them in a fall wreath. Who knows? That may be my project next week . . . lol!

I love the crows. I too have been looking for them in the stores, it seems like they all have the wired legs and feet?, well anyway, I was just thinking maybe you could use some wire hangers and bend them. I had thought of that, but never tried it, just an idea. YOurs are adorable.
