I don't know about the rest of you, but
I see the most amazing things on your blogs
in magazines, etc. and get very inspired to
try my hand at some new things!!! So, from
time to time I will be presenting "INSPIRED
BY" to give credit where credit is due!!!
For my first installment I bring you the shell
encrusted bird house, inspired by a post from
CINDY'S ROMANTIC HOME, where she
showed a picture of this amazing, shell
covered birdhouse/work of art that she
was admiring...bit I think it was rather pricey!
(Sorry, I couldn't find the exact post, darn it!)
Well, not only do I not like to spend "real" money
on something like that...I also enjoy the challenge
when I know I can make it myself!
I had this bird house for quite a while....
then I finally painted it...but that was it....
until I was INSPIRED BY Cindy's post and
I thought "A-ha"!!!
It was actually kind of fun figuring out which shell
needed to go where... of course, I had to add some
other pearly, shiny, rhinestoney things too!
It turned out, ok, if I do say so myself and now
I want to make more!!! But when I do I will be sure
to have many more shells on hand...for this one
I just used what I had at home, also much more
pre-planning & detail. I just get a bit impatient when
I am inspired and have to create...right then & there!!!
THX FOR THE INSPIRATION!!!!
Hurry over to KIMBA'S for more
