I thought I would share something a little different today. This is a video that I put together for Scrap n Art Magazine some time back and you may have seen me reaching for it in my other videos. I keep it right on my desk and it's super easy to make, I hope you enjoy.
Here we go with my first altered project video. It's a simple and fun project that I hope you can get some inspiration from. Thanks again to everyone for all the wonderful feedback on my YouTube channels, it's so wonderful to hear from you.
So I was walking along the lake path and I came across this area that was swarming with critters! The trees were filled with birds and there were squirrels scurrying about everywhere. Then this woman holding a plastic bag walks up to the little picnic table at the base of tree and proceeds to cover it with birdseed!! She tells me she does this every couple of days! WHAT!!!! I know where to go for pictures of birds now!!
So I back up about 30 yards or so and wait until she walks away. And they came, lots and lots of birds!! First up, this stunning Blue Jay! I don't know what the smaller brown ones are.
Then came a two Cardinals. They are such a gorgeous bird, so brilliant with the red!! There are two males and one female there! How awesome is that!
Then came the squirrels and chased off all but these black birds which may be Grackles (if you zoom in you can see that their heads are actually blue), but eventually they flew off as well, leaving the food all to the squirrels.
MARIO THE CARDINAL WAS NOT IMPRESSED!!
"If only I could get a little bit closer.."
"If I tip toe quietly, perhaps Mr Squirrel won't see me sneaking up from the rear!"
closer, closer. closer...
"TRIUMPHANT! I'M THE KING OF THE WORLD!"
One last thing to share...how excited am I that the sun is finally heading back to the North Horizon!! This was my view as I drank my coffee this morning! This is going to be a great summer!!
That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. I read and appreciate every single one! If you have any questions, please let me know.
