Creative Kismet is having a Birds of Change exchange. There are so many of us signed up, and we all love birdies. A perfect swap for me, since I am a nature and bird-a-holic. Here is what we are swapping:
Handmade birds only. Made to hang, all year long. They can be sewn, embroidered, felted, painted, stamped, decoupaged, beaded, recycled, stuffed, knitted, crocheted, or made from paper, etc.
I have made some upcycled bird mini-collages for the swap.
I cannot wait to see what everyone else comes up with. There is a flickr group here. Check back on the Creative Kismet blog for a list of others participating in a bird giveaway on Jan 20. Here is a tiny peek of what I am giving away that day, come back here on the 20th to enter.
