{scraps of love}

Many people have asked me about the little birdnest in the photo that I use for my custom listing (and other listings). I thought I would share with you where it came from....

 Well, it came from the floor in my studio! LOL! Usually when Im finished for the day, I clean up the work space in my studio. And theres always a pile of burlap scraps, threads that have been cut, pieces of jute, lint & fuzz, ect. One day as I was gathering up 'the pile', and I thought "hmmm, I wonder if I can make this into a cute nest??" I got out my glue, and carefully shaped it into a nest. I love that its not perfect, and a little rough around the edges, but it instantly stole my heart. Im amazed that something so simple and beautiful can be made from what was normally headed to the trash can. Maybe this will inspire you to go make something beautiful out of YOUR scraps! You never know what will come out of it!

 Thank you all for asking!

What a creative idea. It is so beautiful. It's simplicity is stunning. I will have to keep an eye on my scraps before I throw them away.

I bet a scrap white muslin nest with some glitter on it would look lovely too!! (hint! hint!)

i save all my scraps, first i make what i make, then with the scraps i make a bunch of yo-yos, then with the scraps from that i use to fill the dog beds that i make and donate to Humane Society of Lake County Thrift Shop, so they can sell, and use the money for the dogs and cats that need our help.
