For the Birds??

I DID IT!!

It took me 3 hours at the computer today, but my first tutorial is on my other blog now.
"Bird Nest Building 101".

It was quite the challenge, but also a great feeling of accomplishment.

I love birds, and nests and nature. Since i can't find bird nests, (and the best ones are usually taken by the birds), last year i started making my own.
So I decided that i should do a tutorial and share with friends who may also be frustrated about finding nests. Doing a tutorial is certainly different than just sitting and doing one, or showing someone in person how to do it.

If you get a chance, go check it out.
If you have any help, suggestions, comments, please let me know.
This is all just one big learning experience for me, and I would appreciate the help.

Many thanks to my friend Pam who spent hours taking photos for me. ( More like 10 minutes). =0))
Thanks Pam.

Blessings to all of you.

My friend Dawn not only does beautiful work, but is a support, encouragement, and inspiration to us all.
