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:

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!

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! 🙂

A Bird Of A Different Color

I wanted to mix things up for today’s Weird Bird Wednesday.  So I created a few mixaphors for my bird using scissors to creatively carve its shape.

As this bird evolved, one discovered that…

Clothes Lips don’t make the bird…

And a horse bird of a different color…

May be the cat’s bird’s pajamas after all!

Never judge a book bird by its cover (up).

Cheers!  🙂

The Willowwack

This strange looking bird lives in the wooded, uninhabited areas of New England:

It is recognized by its artichoke-green beak and its spirographic eyes that glow in the dark protecting it from unwanted preditors.

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

I hope this silly bird gives you a smile today!

Cheers!  🙂

The Kenspeckle

Knowing that a Kenspeckle bird can easily be seen or recognized…I spotted one right away from this Gelli-print – do you see it?

Let me help you…

The Kenspeckle bird is related to the Pigsney bird – no fooling!  😉

Yes, kenspeckle is a REAL word!  I found it on Dictionary.com “Word of the Day.”  You never know what you will find in the dictionary or my imagination!  LOL!

Happy Friday!  :-)))

Wacky Wednesday

Well, I couldn’t resist a little wacky word play with this word of the day:

wing-ding – noun  1.  a noisy, exciting celebration or party

Wendy Warbler wants to WOW all birds at Wednesday’s wild wing-ding!

Wendy Warbler

Wendy’s wearing a wacky wardrobe while whistling, “Rockin Robin” and whirling wildly.  I wonder will Wendy win?

What worldly words of wisdom would you give Wendy?

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

And HAPPY whistling!  Tweet Tweet!  🙂

What’s In A Name?

The imaginary animal I created yesterday with the letter, “Y” inspired me to create these imaginary creatures with the letters of my name today:

Jill name

I think this would be a fun project for kids!  Especially around the holidays when they are on Christmas break from school.

Maybe they just want to create their initials:

JK initials

Or maybe they have a nickname:

Jilly creatures

I hope you have FUN creating imaginary creatures with someone you love!

Would love to see what you do!

Happy Creating!  🙂
