Nest Feathers and Twine - Formally Artist's Block Studio

The things that make a house a home and the stuff that holds is all together.

Years ago I started this blog with a mindset and goals that I have found have changed direction over time. I am excited to say that this blog has a new name.....Nest Feathers and Twine. I hope you come by and visit often. Feel free to get comfortable and kick off your shoes and join me on this journey of metamorphosis.

Thanks D. for the inside scoop on how to make these pins! This year my youngest wanted to give, give, give to a large list of teachers (15 to be exact!) I could not say no, but I was stuck, with that many gifts to make I needed something quick. Usually I hand paint an ornament for his teachers, but this year I wanted to do a little something different, and these worked out great. I felt the need to booger them up and add stitching to the petals and leaves, but I soon found that I loved their simplicity and plain-ness.  Posted by Picasa
