Build a little Birdhouse in your Soul...

Haha...do you remember that silly They Might be Giants song?  Catchy...
...little TOO catchy, LOL...

{{{{oh, and thanks for scrolling DOWN for my RIBBON CAROUSEL Challenge post!}}}

I am singing a FUN tune today, though-singing from the rooftops as today is my FIRST post over on the Helmar DT blog..and here's a sneak peek of what you can see over there:

My Mom is not only the best, but she's my best friend and also my biggest cheerleader.  She gushes over my crafty accomplishments, almost to an embarrassing degree sometimes, but I wouldn't have it any other way and neither would she.  I love her SO much and she just so happens to love birds.

She collects birdhouses, even bird teapots...so when I saw this little wooden birdhouse at Joann I could NOT resist...and it was outside in a bin for only $1~that's my kinda price tag :)   Didn't it come out cute?

I have to admit I'm especially fond of the 'shingles' I created using a border punch by EK Success.  The Helmar Premium Craft glue was the perfect glue to use on this project as were the Liquid Scrap dots to 'pop' up my butterflies:

I have a step-by-step picture guide on the Helmar DT blog today and would LOVE for you to join me over there!   Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you guys again tomorrow!

xoxo,
Jess :)
