Make a Little Birdhouse in Your Soul

A long, long time ago, I bookmarked a link to Heather Alexander's Etsy shop, called Art By Heather, where she sells the very cutest wooden collaged birdhouse pendants. 

I was poking through my old bookmarks recently, and discovered that she is closing her shop on December 15!  I quickly placed my order for a couple of her adorable birdhouse pendants, along with a kit that will allow me to make a few of my own. 
What a delightful package to receive in the mail this past week!
Along with the two birdhouses, which I absolutely adore, I also ordered a writer's pendant.  I am very interested in applying myself more diligently to my writing, and I thought:  why not encourage myself with a little writer's talisman?
I have become quite smitten with typewriters of late, and have created an entire Pinterest board in their honor, so this typewriter charm was especially compelling!
So now I have the happy task of using Heather's kit to create some birdhouse pendants of my own.  I'll be back another day with the results!

I encourage you to take advantage of Heather's impressive store closing sale on her two Etsy sites.  One shop is focused more on her own finished art pieces, and the other shop provides a really exciting collection of collage, assemblage, and jewelry supplies.  I've just now placed my second order with Heather to her supply shop.  Be sure to place yours before the 15th!

For those of you who didn't pick up on it, the title of my post comes from an awesome little song by They Might Be Giants that always reminds me of my high school friends.  Take a moment to watch the YouTube video here.

Andria, I have been loving typewriter images lately. Thanks for this heads up about the shop. I'm going over there right now!

I don't know anything about They Might Be Giants. I will have to watch this after work.

YAY for writing!
