Birds, Soup and Alphabets

Thanks for stopping by everyone.  I love hearing from you all and reading your comments.  I hope that this finds you all in warm (hopefully pollen-free) weather.  I am working on morphing my allergies into yet another cold!  BLEH!

But before that happens let me have some alphabet soup.  Over at 2x2x2, our awesome blogstress Cstocks is celebrating 3 year anniversary with the theme Alphabet!  You would think that would be an easy theme.  But I had to work really hard to figure out what I would do.  I think I was sick with a cold when I designed this one as well!!


 After I designed this one I started watching these cute little videos from my favorite hockey team The Chicago Blackhawks, entitled "Soup and a Sandwich".  For those who don't follow hockey; Soup is Brian Campbell, nicknamed Soupy because of his last name.  Sandwich is Artemi Panarin, nicknamed Breadman because of his last name sounding so much like Panera Sandwich Co.  So this video is the 3rd one and I liked it because it has some jokes in it.  One of which was about ducks which was our theme 2 weeks ago at EIM.  Check it out.  BTW, check out that awesome sweater?!?


 Also this week over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is woodpecker.  We used to hear woodpeckers a lot around here but I think this weather has them all confused.  But I decided to make a red headed woodpecker.  At least I think that is what this one is.  LOL


Whatcha think?  I like him.  He is the quietest woodpecker EVER!  LOL.

That is it for me this week.  I have been working on my designs from the beads I got from the bead swap from the Facebook group Bead Peeps.  But it is slow going for me on that one.  I will show something next week, hopefully.

Until then don't forget to fly on over to EIM and 2x2x2 to check out the great work over there.  Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed and creative week my friends.
