Make and Listen






Making:

~ a lovely owl to be gifted to a special little one for Christmas

~ a new birthday crown for my little man, his old one was just too small

~ new toys are in the toy shop...gnome size furniture

~ our nature treasures ready to be shipped off, thanks to Mud Puddles to Meteors for hosting the nature exchange

Listening:

~ a little Michael Buble, a bit of Sarah McLachlan and some Diana Krall have been playing around here

~ we are enjoying the sounds of the winter birds returning to our part of the world...black capped chickadees, red breasted nuthatches, and blue jays, oh the blue jays

What have you been making and listening to this week?

  1. Oh, what wonderful making.
    That owl is adorable, the crown turned out bright and colorful, so great!
    I am in love with the little furniture. Wishing my kiddos were still young enough to play with it! :-)
    The nature box looks filled with wonderful treasures and tucked in such bright tissue paper.
    We have been loving the new birds arriving back. Stellars jays and western scrub jays have both been at our feeder. They are so pretty and have such a distinct call.
    Thanks for joining in again this week!

  2. Such a productive week, Kim!! I love your making. We need to get going with packaging up our nature goodies. My schooled kid wants to join in, so it may wait until the weekend.
    We've been hearing the white-throated sparrows again--we have chickadees, nuthatches, & jays all year round, but I only really hear the white-throated sparrows when it cools down. Such a unique song.

    1. Yes, they are fun to make and now that Reece is older he actually remembers wearing it from year to year, which is super cool.

  7. I love the owl! My boys saw it and now want me to make them each one - I'm still working on their fingerless gloves from my last 'Make and Listen' post.
    We are excited about the nature exchange as well and still have to get it all sorted and out the door!
