On The Ninth Day Of Christmas . . . .

My new 21" x 23" Christmas door poster.
Check each day to see WHOOO will be next!
I hope that you enjoy!


On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
Nine Owls Singing,
Eight Owls With Glasses,
Seven Owls on Branches,
Six Owls With Mittens,
Five Sparkly Owls,
Four Sleeping Owls,
Three Elf Owls,
Two Angel Owls,
And a Gold Owl in a Pine Tree

Thanks for stopping by today!

I think after the holiday I will post some of the details of the making of these owls - some punches were used but I did free hand draw most of the patterns. The posters I have found are truly a labor of love - and committment! :<)

To Valery Anne - the glasses are not wire - wish I had thought of that - they are made with two circle punches, one punched around/after the smaller one was punched, to make a very tiny rim and then a even more tiny crosspiece was added. Eight pairs of glasses took me awhile! :<) Lots of detail to create these little owls!

Wishing you a happy day today!
