I really do try and write a blog post....I promise....I really do. But sometimes time just gets away from me. If only I could post before I look at my blog Reading List! I some how get so engrossed in what is going on in blog world that 3 hours have passed and I haven't blogged anything. I visit everyone's blogs at least every other day and I am so sorry if I don't leave a comment on your wonderful blogs. I usually am in such a rush that I read each of your entries that I have missed and then move onto the next blog on my list. Of course this happened I have been wanting to blog about my wonderful owls that I received when I joined Debby's owl swap. They are the most creative and adorable owls. Each has his/her own personality!

Clockwise starting from bottom.
Tiny owl on a branch:
Is this not the cutest owl? Debby made this one and she used a mason jar lid for the base! How cute. I love the little bundle of sticks and the buttons. Guess what the owl's wings are made of? Sunflower seeds! Thank you so much, Debby. I am just thrilled that I participated in you owl swap!!!
Fabric owl:
"Handmade with love by Genie" is what the note says! I love it. Genie didn't know who would receive her little owls but she thought enough of each of us to include a handmade with love note. I love it! The owl is so adorable. He is hand stitched from fabric and felt. And I love the button eyes! Thank you so much Genie. He has made himself home in my craftroom.
Top, burlap owl:
How clever!! A burlap owl. Judy made him and this is the cutest little owl ornament. I love burlap and have never made anything out of it. Just bows and table runners. I am going to have to expand my burlap usage! I love his colorful wings, cute! Thank you so much for this sweet owl, he is going to be hanging on my craftroom Christmas tree!
Owl to the right, matchbox owl:
This owl came to my house to stay and even brought his own bed, blanket and pillow! Sew adorable!! I have always wanted to make a little matchbox craft but have never gotten around to it. Thank you so much, Pam! I will have to make one now. Can you see the blanket and pillow in the matchbox? Zoom in for a closer look at all the owls.
What a bunch of talented ladies! Thank you so much. I love each one of these little owls and will always treasure them. 

Here's what Debby sent me. Look at the stamp and ribbon, I smell a card in the making :) I love the stickers. They are just adorable. I can't wait to use them. I must confess, I have a "thing" for stickers. It goes way back to my childhood when we use to trade them like baseball cards. I love stickers! Thank you Debby!!

Here's a recap on what I sent:
Sleepy little owls. 

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!


  1. I loved seeing the owl family your made. They are all precious. Mine is now sitting on my mantle piece and it so cute. Debby’s is right beside it. I am really enjoying reading your blog and looking at all of your creations. What a talented girl you are. genie

  2. Darling owl family!! Happy Thanksgiving! xo Heather

  3. Your owl family is precious and I'm just smitten with your Christmas elves on your blog header. I can't wait to start decorating my Christmas dollhouse.

  4. Hi Holly! Love your new background and sweet header! And all those owls are just too cute!! I think I have an owl stamp that is really similar to that one! :) Your owls that you sent are just too cute for words!! Wishing you a lovely week and happy Thanksgiving!! xo Holly

  5. Oh Holly you owls are darling! Any chance you will show how to make them? Owls are huge right now and I am always so amazed at how many different interpretations there are. Just when I think I've seen every way to make an owl along comes a new one. Hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving.

  6. Hello Holly, your lovely little owl arrived in Norway today. Thank you so much, he is so sweet. Pam xx


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I treasure each and every one in my heart. I love reading them. Time often prevents me from responding to each comment but rest assured they are very precious to me.
