Stewarding Life in the Backyard

Taking a break from grafting citrus outside today to pop in and let you know about my new post on the Sizzix Blog which celebrates nature!  This summer, the backyard oasis is really coming alive.  There are a ton of insects, mostly good ones, and their presence has brought in birds looking for easy protein-rich snacks!  The birds wait on perches close to the Queen Anne’s Lace (Ammi majus), and swoop over the flowers to snatch bugs unawares.  Very recently they have also begun snatching up the wasps in our passionfruit vine.  Our plot is becoming a well functioning ecosystem, and I feel a deep satisfaction knowing that I can steward life this way.  So my latest crafty post celebrates the glorious arrival of the birds!


This easy home decor piece features new Big Shot Plus dies, and while it looks “arty” and loose,  it doesn’t really require major art skills.  Hope you’ll stop by the Sizzix Blog to see the full tutorial!.
