my mom is into owls this year hehe
 SO i  got out some of my shells and made her one. I know it's not totally awesome, but i think she'll like it.
 I might stick a  magnet on the back


next up is a owl. I stiched one wing down at it's side and the other a little over it's chest .. maybe i'll have it hold soemthing. I got the pattern for this own in the toys & play things  section and showed it off there and the link to the thread where the  pattern was given




and this book is a work in progress . running out of time  with still much book to fill. might end up making a drawer or cubby hole in the  second half.
i didn't intend for it to be scrapbooky but it ended up that way. i had just found so many free paper patterns and printed till i ran out of ink lolk
 not sure if i will cover the outside or not. if it's going to have a secret hole.. best not to  bring attention to itself.

 She doesnt get to see my daughter too much and  she's growing up so fast.. so i put in pictures of her at different stages in life.


 the flower petals are actually dried out sunflower petals. nice and soft n smooth








 any new ideas of what to add to the book are welcome.
 so are other owl crafts.
i cannot knit or crotchet

 Grin

I've added googly eyes to the plush owl ,  sewed the wings in , one is holding a little sign . and i added feet.



to the book, i added a couple pages.
 





the heart actually spins. it has a transparent nylon thread glued in between 2 heart cut uts and  glued in between pages . twist the heart a few times and lay it down . when the page gets turned the heart spins. fun stuff hehe
 

 I'm also giing my mom 2 dvds .

That sea-shell owl is SOOOO adorable.

Also, nice name for your daughter. It's mine too. Smiley

give me my Romeo, and when I shall die,
take him and cut him out in little stars
and he will make the face of heaven so fine
that all the world will be in love with night,
and pay no worship to the garish sun.

You don't think it's totally awesome?  It's fantastic!  Way better than I could ever do and I would have never thought of it.  Obviously I dont know your mom, but I think she's going to love it if her "thing this year is owls"
