**Studio Friday**


This is my "bluebird" of happiness. Yes- he is orange, but he makes me smile every time I see him. He is not only my newest addition to the craft room, but he is also my favorite.

I found him in a wild bird food store and just HAD to have him for the craft room. Is it because I have 4 birds of my own? Is it his cute blue beak? Is it the curly wires for a tail?? I am not sure, but he has been my inspiration for the last few weeks. He sits on a shelf in the craft room and is one of the first things I see when I walk in.


I have a tendency to get caught up in my crafts, and take them too seriously. Bluebird (Yes- that is his name) reminds me that cute and whimsical is just as "artsy" as some stuffy over thought SB page. He also reminds me to use color in ways that I usually do not. I admit it- I use a lot of creams and tan and kacki in my pages, and since he came along, I have been going wild with color. Lime green, neon blue, deep red and (gasp!) orange had crept into my pages- All thanks to bluebird.

Your bird is so cute! I just love his bright color and tail, so bold and daring! I love the earthy tone colors very much but have found myself going to more vibrant colors when I can.
