Water Bottle Doll

"Use it up, wear it out, make it over,
or do without."

So I remade my water bottle (or two) into a doll. (Obviously I am out of birdhouses.) She is made completely out of water bottle plastic and wire, dressed in yarn and fabric with a hand painted face.

All recycled, re-purposed, up-cycled items from around the house.
While you are at my blog, check out my pages (Paintings, drawings, photos,etc...) at the top... Lots of fun things to see!

Words to Live By

"Don't put off being creative"

...the dishes can wait till my project is done.
...my laundry will still be there in an hour.
...my floors will need to be swept again,
so I can wait till I am done being creative.

"I stop three times I day to feed my body food...
... I should stop once and a while to nourish my creativity!"

~all quotes, authors unknown
I read these two quotes today
in an article about living a creative life
and thought I'd share.
Here is my favorite:
"TO LIVE A CREATIVE LIFE WE MUST LOSE OUR FEAR OF BEING WRONG" ~ Attributed to Joseph Pearce

Bird Houses - City Clean-up Day

This birdhouse was made with objects found on the streets of my home town while volunteering on a city clean-up day. It also has parts of news paper articles about the city clean-up day.
I thought a birdhouse was fitting since this town currently has an over-population of birds that has become an issue.
