Birthday Pics and Today's Owl

I guess I promised some birthday pictures, didn't I? Well, here they are.

As you can see, I gave mom a fabric-covered primitive house, tree, and sheep. (I machine sewed them myself) They are made out of wood.

She was also given a drink cookbook, fabric money, flowers, chocolate bars, and new red dishes. The fabric money has already bought some really cute boy bib fabric-planets, cars, and robots.

Julianna and I decorated her a cake, a red primitive house, and willow tree, all out of icing.

Owls...They're such magnificent birds. They can be as light as a burger, or as big as a microwave. (Good comparisons, right?) I also happen to know that owls can be extremely cute and cuddly, when made out of fabric and stuffed. They also make good collections. So, sit back and relax, and enjoy...

Today's owl is made from a material I have not yet mentioned in "Who? Emmy-Sue". Clay. "Sculpey" Modeling clay. Now, I am lucky to own four colours of clay. Pistachio green, hot pink, yellow, and dark blue. But, mixing the right amount of certain colours, for a certain amount of time, gives you different colours. So in this owl, I mixed green with pink, and it gave me a much lighter, softer looking pink. The other colours are the originals.
My little owl is only an inch tall...

...and weighs next to nothing. Isn't he (she) cute? I fell in love as soon as he (she) came out of the oven...
