Sometimes Gossip is Wonderful!


Dawn, at the Feathered Nest told us about Just Something I Made having a tutorial on making birds nests. Well, you guessed it, I went on to find wonderful, clear, & complete directions. (Thank you, Cathi Holden, so much for your information & generosity!) (By the way, I boiled three eggs and pealed them/crushed the shells then put, the far left nest, into a baggy for a couple of days and it automatically antiqued the nest. Now it is not so shiny and new looking) I also made my own clasps from a heavier gauge wire.
Today I went to see Linda at White Linen-Lavender Fields and she had some stunning nests that I fell in love with them! Then I went to another blog (Primitive Seasons) and there was a gorgeous card.
Bird nests are springing up everywhere and Dawn started me on this roll.
Isn't that just like life? We can affect & effect so many just by the words that come out of our souls. Dawn, is such a pure & kind soul. We feel it by how she writes & her love of our blog world. We somehow "connect" with those who are of a "like spirit" & a love of the creative spirit within each of us.
Bloggers everywhere are touching so many people/for the good or negative . I just "happened" to find this delightful group of wonderful & uplifting ladies that spiritually encourage my soul as well as encouraging my creative side! Thank each and everyone of you that are so kind, generous, & encouraging. You truly make my experience of blogging a true pleasure.
Blessings to you,
Sharon

Sharon,
First of all i want to agree with all you just said, about Dawn, and most people being encouraging and uplifting both spiritually and creatively here in blogland.

Then, thanks for coming by.
I'm glad my Barb's Treasures post was help in confirming what the Lord was directing you to do.
I too am too sensitive and working on it.
But, the up side, is that we are very careful that we do not hurt others, and care when they are hurting.

Also, love your little bird nests.
You know I make my own, but these are so tiny, and i have just the perfect place for them under some little 3" cloches i just got!.
I had forgotten about the post i had seen them on.

blessings and thanks for sharing all.
