It's a Bird. It's a Plane. No, It is a Bird!

I have a love/hate relationship with custom orders in my Etsy Shop - Inside The Beehive. I think it's because I overthink everything instead of just going with the flow. I worry way too much if the buyer will like what I created. Fingers crossed, KOW, so far so good.

My latest project is a mini for a gal who likes bird's nests, robins, buttons, burlap and her favorite colors are pink and teal. I dare you to find any patterned paper in pink and teal. Double and triple dare you! There is absolutely none available in the universe. I checked. So, I improvised and made the bird mini album in pinks and added buttons in teal.

I wanted to add a real pretend bird's nest,
so I used an altered tray lined with vintage paper. 

 There are Five Birdies with plenty of room for journaling and small photos.
I hate seeing broken bird's eggs so I glued these down. 
 Note the buttons on the bottom. Cute?

Okay, you  can be honest with me. What do you think? If you like it please leave me a comment. If you don't like it please remember what your mama told you - If you can't say something nice, then don't say anything!

    1. You are so sweet. I love that you called me a worry wart. That's something my mom would say and it brings back wonderful memories. Hugs and many thanks!

  2. Awesome!!!!!!! Everything is perfect. Love how you made the tray for the whole project. Nothing to worry about.

    1. Good News! The gal loved it and it's in the mail! Thanks for the kind words and sending you big time hugs!
