So there's this picture tutorial on Pinterest -and I love it! So much in fact that it's inspired me to make my own little version.I used the traditional method of making pompoms though, and used natural twigs as stems.Pinterest Craft Challenge Complete!

Art Journal #7

I am getting better much quicker than last time! I have even managed to get some crafts, Christmas decorating, and some embroidery done!But doodling in an art journal is easier, especially when you can't think due to a full head.

Meet Loretta

So my Mum took her dog for a walk a few months ago and didn't get half way round the block when this Rainbow Lorikeet flies onto her shoulder. She walked back home with it sitting there and called me. We've posted found notices for a few weeks but all to no avail. So we've decided to keep her.I'm pretty sure it's a she because she was biting at first. But she picked up very quickly that she wasn't allowed to do that and now she's a very well behaved little birdy.
Loretta loves to play with the bells in her cage, and gets on her back with a tinkle-ball in her feet and plays with it. She loves baths, and she can talk!When we bring her native flowers, she starts off by saying "What's this? What's this?" Then goes on with "Flowers!" She can whistle many different things and also say "hello, hey, oh, ok, WOW" and asks "What's up?"You can also put your finger into the cage saying "shake" and she'll repeat it back to you and shake your finger with her foot.Yep, she's a pretty cool bird.
