Birdie Swap

I joined Lori's birdie swap and Holly was my partner... I emailed her and asked her about colors and likes, she said she liked any kind of silhouette and her room was black, white, and blue! Here is the loot I sent, I hope she likes it!

I did a little blog research and found that she liked cuckoo clocks, I found this cuckoo clock necklace on etsy... Love it!

She also has a zebra print couch... CUTE, she said she liked monograms, but I had to birdie it up a bit, so I made her a brooch and attached it to the "H" {with a pony tail band}

Little blue bird

White cage {tea light candle holder} I just placed moss {nest} in the candle cup and added eggs!

Holly has a cute little boy and I couldn't resist this silhouette, and yes...
there is a little birdie under the table!

another silhouette with a blue easel

My favorite is the black and white polka dot nest I made, filled with dictionary page covered eggs rolled in glitter, and a blue bird.

Aren't swaps FUN!!

She is going to absolutely love those goodies. I so wanted to join the easter swap, but don't think I will be able to add one more thing to the plate right now. I'd sure love to be opening that box, correct initial and all. Jackie
