Messenger Owls

I figured it was about time for my very first post!
First of all, welcome to my blog! I plan to update with new posts every week or so. I will be putting information about my new crafty projects, showing you my creative process, sharing cool things I have found, such as free tutorials, awesome blogs, and more.

I made a messenger owl over a year ago and have been wanting to make some for my etsy shop ever since! I finally started working on a few. Now that I only work 2 days a week, I have much more time to work on my projects. These owls are pretty small - about 6 inches tall - and have a pocket on the back that is the perfect size for gift cards, matchbox cars, tootsie rolls, etc!
My son has already snagged the smarties and the Zune. I love the blue owl with the picture in the pocket - so much more fun than getting a picture in an envelope! :)
I put 4 owls up in my shop this morning, and more will be added tonight, before J and I head out to see Juno. I love the soundtrack to this movie, especially this song:

Such a sweet song!!

I'll leave with a picture of me and K, taken by our awesome new MAC. We were having fun with some of the effects... I'm going to have to bargain with K to let me use the computer from now on, I think! Between Photo Booth and Text Edit, he has hours of fun at his fingertips :)

Next week, I'll be adding some brand new items to my shop. I am really excited about them and can't wait until they are ready!
