A Rare Sighting

We interrupt this scheduled post to announce a rare bird sighting… or maybe it’s a creature feature?!

A Splodge was spotted in Oaxaca, Mexico with his female partner, Splotch and their 3 offspring:  Blot, Botch and Spot…


One has to have an eagle eye and creative mind in order to spot such a rare find:

It also helps to have the very, talented Hannah at HannahBanana Crafts to mention the word, “Splodge,” in a comment to me on her blog.  This word led me to Splotch which Dictionary.com states is perhaps an origin of spot, blot and botch…

Thank you Hannah for the inspiration for my crazy birds!  😉

Happy Creating!

  5. LOL! How fun and creative! Good eye Jill for spotting them. I think Splotch looks like a lovely Dragon more than a bird.

  9. Im loving them and as a child would have noticed them a lot quicker. But if sitting at a wall like that my mind would have come up with something. But maybe not as entertaining as yours Jill. I love your creative mind.

  12. This made me smile!! And I remembered once living as a student in a very old canal house, my room had water damage due to a leaking roof. Big yellow stains on a white washed wall…I traced all stains with a black marker and hey…it was a map of the world! It looked a lot less depressing ;o) xo johanna
