How about some Yard Birds?

I had a request for a few of my funky yard birds at a place where I sell my gourd art. They were putting up a display for Spring. So, I've been working diligently this week on six new yard birds!

These "Yard Birds" which have actually been made from gourds and gourd pieces and can be put out in your flower bed for the Summer. Once the season is over though it is best if you bring them in, wipe them off and seal them again before putting them out in your flower bed for another Summer! I love using my Proxxon Jigsaw for gourds when I work and I'm so happy to have had the opportunity to use one. You really need to check out all the tools at , you'll have a wish list in no time! 

Please go over to the Tiny Tool Time Blog to get the instructions on how to create a few of these birds for yourself and leave me some love in the comments section.

Trying out a new tool and lovin' it!

Hello everyone! I've done a little tutorial for you using my Proxxon Jig Saw STS 12/E and my brand new "Belt Sander BS/E". I'll tell you what, I've been so excited to receive my new belt sander! I had a terrible time deciding whether I wanted to try the jigsaw or the sander out first and chose the jigsaw first and then received the Delta Sander OZI/E to try! These tiny tools are just amazing folks! If you use or need some tiny tools, then I would definitely recommend the Proxxon brand.

If you'd like to know how I made this pendant necklace, head on over to the Tiny Tool Time blog. Please leave me a comment and let me know how you feel about my tutorials. Until next time,
