I started my musical bird Christmas ornaments today
I went to a little thrift shop today, I hadn't been to it in several months (shame on me, 'cause they're very inexpensive). And they had alot of sheet music books. So I went through them and picked the ones that the music lines were close enough together, tossed out the 'school class' band books (for 6th grade trumpet, etc), and tossed out the ones that were stark white (there's no fun in looking 'new'...blah), and I finally ended up with the ones in the pic...I spent $4.50 on all these books and there's aLOT of pages in a few of those books, and I've already started chopping them up, lol.
I put my pattern on the pages and started tracing them, then cut them out. I plan to glue them on tinted cardstock (so there's color on the back) and will embellish accordingly. I'm off to a great start...it'll take a few days for me to get some done, I tend to be all over the place at the same time, lately...or at least that's how I feel sometimes, lol. But, alas, a train trip and wine tasting is in my near future (Saturday, yum), can't wait, rain or not, I'm GOin!
don't ya think my birdie ornaments are gonna look just like the $5.99 ones at JCPenneys???? actually, they're gonna look even BETTER, cuz it's ME that's making them, lol...I'll post pics of the finished products in a few days.
