I would have had a terrible time unwrapping that lovely box, lol.

that box is sooo cool! I think she drew the birds on the box. The box is covered with all types of birds. The Peacock on the top and Humming birds, a flamingo, swallows, an owl, a cockatiel, a pheasant, an eagle , a rooster a toucan a duck, a penguin, a seagull a crow with barbed wire fencing and MORE! I not kidding you..this box is a work of art!!!  I'm not sure if she found the box with birds on it or if she did it. I'm pretty sure she drew them.   It has every bird you can imagine on the box and I wish I could post the whole thing. It's a work of art in itself! I'm keeping the box.

I'm so glad you like everything and that it made it in one piece. As you can probably tell, I had a lot of fun with this swap.

The box was plain brown when I got it. I originally wanted to just draw generic bird shapes on it but after the first one I thought it was super lame. Instead, I looked up a bunch of references while watching some movies and went to town with a sharpie. The peacock is sharpie and colored pencils. I couldn't decide what my favorite was on there, but I liked how the love birds and the cockatiel turned out. I put the ostrich on there when I remembered your avatar.  Grin

The pillow was also a lot of fun to make. I fell in love with how that bird looked after searching for them in google and knew I had to paint him for the pillow you wanted!

P.S. I also got my package from you today, but have not opened it. Why you ask? Am I not super stoked to rip into it? Of course I am, but I am also spectacularly stupid sometimes. This time being that I broke the HECK out of my phone and probably won't be able to get a new one until Thursday or Friday. This means no camera until I find my hand held. =(

Okay, given there's a resident cockatiel, I really want to see the cockatiel one.  Wink
