A little nest for “the nest” category here on She Wears Many Hats…
This little nest drawing was done in pen and ink. Recently I’ve been giving them as gifts to family. Each nest is different from the next – just like our real nests. The number of eggs represents the number of children (or chicks) the recipient has hatched. These drawings are fairly small, about 2×3″. They’re certainly not a masterpiece or anything but I’ve enjoyed creating them for family and friends.
(Nanny, if you’re reading this, when you open your birthday present next month just act surprised, like you’ve never seen it before.)
I will be giving away 2 of these drawings to randomly selected winners. Each drawing will be customized with the number of eggs requested. The drawings will be loose, not matted or framed.
(Just keep in mind that a nest can only hold so much. The maximum I’ve drawn thus far is seven eggs in a nest – that’s gotta be one busy mama bird! So if you’ve been blessed with a bounty of eggs I may have to draw a nest condo or something?)
To enter the giveaway just answer the this question…
What’s your favorite way to feather your nest?
Would it be some new pillows? A colorful throw? Fresh flowers? Or are you like me and love to bring nature in through shells, rocks or sticks? (Kinda coordinates well with the dirt on my floor.)
Whatever it may be, please share with us all. Personally, I’m needing a little change around here and would love some simple ideas.
Winners will be announced sometime next Wednesday evening after 9p.m., September, 9th – 9/9/09. Be sure to enter before 9 p.m.
Don’t forget to tell all of your friends to stop by to join in on the fun!
