Mum's Birdie

My gorgeous sister put together a little stocking filled with yumminess for me for Christmas. In it were some Cath Kidston goodies (OK, if you don't know me, then you need to know that I am a MASSIVE CK fan, her stuff just reminds me of home ...). I also got this adorable lavender filled bird to hang in my closet. Hang in a closet? In the dark? Where it can't be seen? Nooooooo .... it's hanging on my Ott Lite on my desk and I look at it (and smell it) every day. So today I looked at it and thought I should try to make a paper version .....
... and as I'm fiddling around trying to make my 'Twitterpated' bird, I am constantly thinking about my Mum who is feeling VERY poorly with Shingles. She's had it for a number of weeks and is slowly, slowly, slowly improving but she's really been hit hard with it and I'm worried about her, and wishing I lived near her so I could pop in with this cute bird to cheer her up. BUT, I can post it, and it will be with her in about a week. Good enough mum? Wait until you see him, he's so much cuter in the flesh :) Here are close-ups ...


So when you receive him, Mum, know that those hearts he's holding in his beak are filled with love from me ~ and I hope you will be even more improved by then. Love you! And thanks to my lovely big sister, Sarah, for sending the lavender bird in the first place. I love you too!!!
