The Bird is the Word!
Last fall I came up with an idea for making my little birds.
I was influenced by Sara Sally Le Grand, Sharon Peters and Kim Fields in the design of the birds. All of these lovely ladies I have been fortunate to take classes with.
After making the 3rd bird, My husband came up with idea of "Everybody's heard about the Bird" or "The Bird is the Word" from the song dating back to the early 60's. This is the origin of the name.
I have really enjoyed making them - they take on a life of their own and sometimes I swear they are telling me what to do and how to do it. And they seem to choose their own names.
And because they are so bossy, I am giving them a page of their own.
