I love how everything is coming back to life after the cold winter months! Flowers are blooming, trees have tiny buds - some have exploded with blossoms and the sweet sound of birds wakes me up each morning. I forgot how wonderful spring is after everything seems so blah. Next week is Spring Break for my girls and how in the world is it almost Easter? Can someone please do some magic that makes Cadbury Eggs calorie free? It's such a simple request. No, okay I'll stick with enjoying the sunshine and birds chirping then!
I whipped up this nest the other day and then created a tutorial for it to offer in my Etsy shop. The nest is a small decoration - you could attach it to the top of a box, set in on a shelf or use it as a place card hold or to hold up a little photo - the leaf is the perfect perch. With a little skill you could easily transform the design into a pin or a pendant. I think I'm going to do some smaller ones as gifts for the girl's Easter baskets. I know they are teenagers, but they still want those little sweet treats from childhood. Don't we all?
