The Birdhouse Clock- Done!

Hello Everybody!

I know, I know...Two blog posts in one day!  LOL!  Sorry about that, but I finished my clock and I wanted to share it with you while I had the chance....

You may recall that I started this birdhouse clock on one of my Secret Sunday Ustream shows and never had a chance to finish it.  I purchased a clock that was very similar in shape and wanted to see if I could put my spin on it in chipboard....Well, with having the day off today, I tackled the project and got it done.  I cannot think of a time I had so much fun making a project!  It was so much fun!!

So without further ado...Here is the clock!    Hope you like it....






As you can tell, I pulled out all my boxes of embellishments.  From Tim Holtz Pulley Wheel to Graphic 45's Drawer Pull...to Prima's gears and Industrial Chic metals to the Martha Stewart paper mache pinecones!  LOL!  I pulled from a little bit of everything!   Just had a blast!

Thanks for looking!  Have an awesome day!

  8. We have a half finished bird nest in our rhododendron bush by the front porch. The bird - I think maybe a cardinal has built this nest - it is too neat for a Robin - has used a length of cellophane to weave through the twigs. There is a piece hanging and blowing in the wind about 8 inches long. I'm not sure if this is meant to frighten others away! The doily, tape ribbon and washi tape remind me of this nest!Lovely job, Jim. Julie
