Liya Kate's Birthday Bird Carousel...

Good Morning Everyone!

Well, I've got everything packed, bills paid, house picked up and my project pretty much done.  By noon, I should be ready to rock on down the road to Waxahachie for Dina's classes!  It's going to be a fun weekend...

I finally put the last bird on Liya Kate's Birthday Bird Carousel.  It's pretty much done, but still needs a few more tweaks to make me happy.   The Bird Carousel of course spins and is made from almost all paper mache pieces I had laying around the house. Here we go...Hope Miss Liya Kate will Love It!

  27. My mind is racing, trying to figure out if I have the stuff on hand to McGyver one of these awesome carousels for my granddaughter. The more I think about it I am realizing that I DO have almost everything onhand to give one of these a try myself! I have wanted to make one for a long time now but until saw yours things just weren't clicking in my brain. I think I can, I think I can, I THINK I CAN! LOL
    Thank you for the inspiration!
