Santa Claws…

The gifts are all wrapped

And under the tree,

We’re hoping Santa Claws

Let’s each of them be…

The twitch of his tail

And gleam in his eyes,

Means he’s been in the catnip,

This is no surprise!

His message to you,

This Christmas Eve night…

Never leave a catniped “Claws”

Out of your sight!

Meowy Christmas my friends!

May your day be filled with happy surprises!

Cheers! 🙂

A Tintinnabulum

Today’s weird bird has a ring to it…

Tintinnabulum – (N) a small, tinkling bell or set of bells playing in succession.

This bird gives new meaning to a “wingding!” Lol!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A FUNgus Weird Bird?

I have been drawing mushrooms and creating them as imaginary characters…

The mushrooms are based on REAL images… But I changed some of the names!

Yesterday, I mixed up my bird shapes from a previous post: A Trendy Bird? with a copy of my mushroom character parts:

I arranged the parts to create a weird bird. This one made me laugh!

So I created my finished bird with a mixture of drawing and gelli-prints:

The “morel” of the story is…

Som(e) brero mushrooms can make a FUNgus weird bird!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

If The Shoe Fits…

Today’s weird bird is a “shoo-in” to tickle your funny bone! Hahaha!

After all, if the shoe fits…

A Three-Ring Circus Bird

I was experimenting with different collage papers the other day and decided to add watercolor around the glued papers.

Some of the papers I used were from Sharon Mann, when we did our collage paper exchange.  If you missed that post, you can read more about it here:  The Speedball Bird

Other papers were from my own collage experiments that I had sewn on my sewing machine and then printed on the Gelli-Plate.

I made two tags for my art journal and found they had a “circus” feel to them:

That is how today’s weird bird came to be… He is from the “Flying Circus!” 😉

A Three-Ring Circus Bird

I used Sharon Mann’s collage papers for this bird!  Thanks again Sharon! 🙂

I finished my “circus” tags with a few pen doodles:

Do you have happy memories from attending a circus?  I hope you share them with me!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A short blip to wish you…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!

A Hankering

Do remember wearing overalls?  I did as a child… they were sooo comfortable!

Today’s Weird Bird is a feathered farm boy bird!  (John Denver’s song comes to mind… Thank God I’m A Country Boy, um, Bird!! 

B0BAB9FC-0A4D-449A-8911-C70C7C060933

Hank had a hankering to wear his overalls today…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday! 

I hope Hank gives you a smile today…

Cheers! 🙂

A Little Silly Fun…

I needed a gift for a “white elephant gift exchange.”  I’m not quite sure where this terminology came from as it has nothing to do with elephants! 😉

To me, it means to re-gift something I received and don’t need or perhaps, give something “creative.”

I decided on a little silly fun this year and created this one-of-a-kind gift!

A0F12315-3A64-4165-883E-8E3106FB5D94

A “Caroler” in a former life that I purchased at a thrift store years ago, I made him into a quirky guy that loves the lake!

It was super fun to create a poem to go with him… I will get to that later in this post.

This silly guy actually moves – his head slowly turns in circles and his right arm moves up and down when he is plugged in to an outlet.  A little weird, I must say!

I started by giving him an old cup for a hat and taped a bird on top.  The bird house came next.  On the back, I added this “key” message (from a candy wrapper):

0528BFCD-BD77-41BB-9CAC-C724A6B90010

He needed a beach towel, so I cut-up an old wash cloth and sewed the outside edges. I used a paper napkin to represent “happy hour” where friends gather to share an appetizer and a drink as you can see in my first photo.

Below, I created a fishing pole from an old paint brush and beads – including a bead for a fish:

E73527D6-534C-4494-AB6D-454F008F1A08

He needed a little summer outfit so I sewed some fabric to give him some pizzazz and cover up that ugly green outfit he was wearing – who says men can’t wear skirts!! Hahaha!

9F7AAC89-F55A-45AB-B852-BD94A0EAC611

I finished him, by adding a Christmas ornament of a chair, a rubber stamp image of an image in the woods and writing a message on the base:

526521FC-C89C-4D8B-8DF6-7C22487FE545

Below is one of the stanzas I wrote for my poem to the song, “Over The River And Through The Woods.”

 

Over the river and through the woods

We look forward to each year…

The memories we make

At this beautiful lake

Are the treasures we hold dear.

I look forward to seeing who receives my creative surprise… I encourage you to “think outside the box” when you give a gift!

Cheers! 🙂

The Muscle Fish

Do you ever feel like you have to do a TON of heavy lifting?!

Well, today’s FUNny Fish feels like he is stretched to his max!
