BiRds**

I received this cute cute little drawing from a second grader a couple weeks ago.
I fell in love with it and want to cross-stitch it onto a t-shirt, blanket or dishtowel, I think it's so stinking cute. I love the cracked egg.


And since receiving it I've gone nuts for birds.
Even started a project with 4th graders studying birds in their habitat. I found an incredible website full of all of John James Audubon's bird paintings, they are absolutely wonderful. Turns out he would shoot the birds and position them with wire to paint them, guess there weren't any cameras in the late 1700's.

All that to say... I'll be having another Etsy update sometime soon,

with lots of BiRdS!

That kids's drawing is pretty amazing! I know it's kinda corny to say this, but isn't it wonderful to see the world through a child's eye? I see you're an art teacher so I'm sure you got a lot of chances to do that, I envy you!

Love the bird and didn't even notice the cracked egg at first. How precious! Got to love kids and their imagination. I hope I get to see it embroidered on a T-shirt, what a cool idea for a collaboration:)
