Our Blessed Nest


I needed to make a quick project for our front entryway because I had nothing to put on it after the Christmas Decorations were put away! Im sure with more time I could have made it nicer, and I'll probably take it down and fix it or make something else and have it there in the meantime, but I thought I'd show it because its my first project for the family that I used my christmas present (cricut) for. Love love Love my cricut!!! Im working on the Relief Society bulletin board and have been able to use the Cricut and it makes it look so much nicer and I don't have to go searching for Chipboard letters or draw on stencils....its awesome!
I used a vintage graphic of the nest from thegraphicsfairy.blogspot.com (love her) she seriously has some great images you can use for fun projects...and just used an online photo program to add text (picnik.com)
I couldn't find an image that had a nest with a momma and daddy bird, so I cut out birds with the cricut and added them to the image and voila! our little family. For the time being it gets the job done.


I love our little nest, we are truly blessed!!! :)

I've never heard of cricut. I just looked it up - very cool. A creative gal like you could go wild with this thing! On another note, I just saw a super cool bird nest charger at potterybarn.com. Check it out - I think its totally cute.

Beautiful collage, and beautifully displayed. I love how the lettering you chose mimics the bird nest look.

Sooo pretty!! I love that you added your own birds to the nest, it gives you project some nice extra dimension. Great job! Thanks so much for playing along today for "Brag Monday"!
