Happy Monday, Crafty Friends! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Last week, I had mentioned that it was my dear friend, Paige’s, big 50th birthday. Now 50 is a pretty big deal, and that calls for a special celebration. So this weekend, Joanne and I had tons of fun throwing a birthday bash for her.
Now Joanne is the ultimate party planner, so of course our little gathering had to have a theme. Since Paige loves owls a lot, and we had just recently finished crafting up some silly raggedy owls at our weekly crafty play dates, we went with that.

Here is my little raggedy guy, finished up just in time to make a guest appearance at the party.
The girls and I have been pinning fancy owl projects for the longest time, and this past month we finally decided to tackle one. It was a big project that took several weeks, but I’m so glad we finally took the plunge. My guy is a compilation of several ideas from my board, which I’ll link you to, in case you’d like to peek. No big surprise I went with colors in my favorite neutral color palette. Lots of greys and browns…. just like my wardrobe. Ha
I used a bit of the Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements fabric I’ve been hoarding, along with lots of recycled remnants from my stash. The eyes are acorn caps. I do love mixing in a bit of nature where I can. I had some wool roving passed down to me from a knitter friend that I used for the ear tufts. And my own Missy Nik fashioned the wire armature for the feet for me. So a true compilation here. And a true work of heart.
Paige took pictures with her cell phone, so I will leave you with a few photos of the party spread.
Thanks so much for stopping by, Friends! Wishing you all a wonderful day!
