I almost didn't make it for WOYWW!  It is very late and I am very tired.  I have been in the car for 6 hours today.  It is just very hectic around here.  I feel like I say that every week!! UGH!

Here is my work desk.  Total mayhem, but this week I have a picture of what I made from the mess!
 I told you!  Crazy, right.  BUT, here is the result!

 Aren't they fun?  The challenge this month at Altered Pages Challenge Blog is Birds.  So I made Little Birdie Tassels.  I used the "Little Spring Birdies" collage sheet, some spools, Niji pearlesent watercolor paints and some music paper from an ephemera pack.  All from The Altered Pages Store.  I had some black silky cord that I cut and tied in a knot with the rope they are hanging from.  I'm going to put them in my kitchen window.  It isn't really spring here yet so these birdies will make be think they really have come back for the warm weather.
A close up of one of my tassels.  

So, thanks for visiting me and enjoy the snooping!!
