Make Something Monday #8

Make Something Monday






Sometime recently I came across this website with downloadable project templates for making NaniBirds. I thought some of them were really cute and it looked like a fun project, so I bookmarked it to come back to later. Nani is the Japanese word for what. Many artists have contributed their own interpretation of the NaniBird by customizing the bird with their artwork. All are free to download and print out. Once printed, you cut them out and fold and glue! We found the glue stick worked better than white glue because it was tackier and stuck quicker. Ivy got a little frustrated getting hers to stick all together, so I wound up helping her some. There are lots of NaniBirds to choose from, and they go together really quickly. I chose the yellow and blue NaniBird asking, "What's cooking?" because my kitchen colors are yellow and blue. You can now find him perching atop my microwave!

About This Blogger

I am a thirty-something mother of two girls and a boy ranging from preschool to middle school. My husband and I keep working and reworking on our goal of raising our family healthier. Our house is a constant work under construction--adding on and remodeling. We're happy to have bought our property a few years ago, but as any homeowners know, owning a home just adds to your list of projects and chores because there's always improvements to be made and maintenance to be done. On our burgeoning homestead, we have chickens, guineas, a few goats, and our most recent additions-rabbits.

About This Blog

I picked the name Petalz and Finz a couple years ago when I decided to try Etsy out. I wanted to custom make some baby related items and have things for girls and boys. I felt the name incorporated both my kids (at the time) into it--petalz for Ivy and finz for Finn.

I haven't had time to do much of anything with my Etsy for a while, but it's still my in my long term goals. In the mean time, I'm having fun with this blog thing. I've found some creative inspiration through my own posting, but also through many other wonderful blogs out there.
