This weekend I traveled to Kansas to attend Birdsong Two at Karla's Cottage. Looking at the outside of this adorable home, don't you want to step inside?
I was here last year for the first ever Birdsong, but still - when I stepped inside I just am amazed by everything I see. Inspiration everywhere! I was so thrilled to be able to attend again this year.
Here are the girls hard at work - and this is only half the room. There were a bunch of girls on the other side too. There were 25 students and 3 teachers. All that creativity in one beautiful space.
Of course, I've teased you with the swaps I've been working on. A few days back I posted a sneak peek at the "SING" banner swap in which I was given the letter "i". My sweet friend Laurie from Colorado hosted this swap. There were four groups and each group ended up with different banners. I'll show the group photos in another post but for now, here are my completed panels. When I put my SING banner together, I'll take a picture to show it with the additional letters I received.
Last year I also missed out on the matchbox swap and watching those beautiful creations get swapped last year I decided no matter how busy I was, I was participating. I had ideas of what I wanted to do but I just couldn't bring them to be. So, at the absolute *last* minute I thought about making this sweet little bird. I just love it. In fact, I wasn't sure I wanted to give it away. ;)A Gilded Life -Shea and Debbie. I scaled the charm down a bit and made a less decorated version but I thought it looked "just right". Hope everyone liked it!
