My Other Hobby

Some of you already know that I enjoy taking care of my little parakeets.
I believe the last time I posted about them I had a little albino names Sugar and a lutino named Sunny. This summer, through the Talk Budgies forum, I learned that they were both females.
Since then I have bought two more parakeets that are males. One is a blue one that I named Smokey for it's smokey color. The other one is a little Sassy one who is yellow with a little olive.
Sadly my Sunny girl passed away from some unknown reason. I buried her out in my rock garden by my garage.
About 3 weeks ago, I was in an unexpected situation where a bird breeder offered me a little baby Sun Conure that had some disabilities. It was about 2 weeks old and only had one wing and the point of it's beak is missing. I brought the little thing home with me and I've been hand feeding it. This is a brand new experience for me. So far it is doing great. I've had it for over three weeks and it is really growing and becoming a happy little Conure. Here are some photos.




And here are my two newest parakeets, Sassy and Smokey.

Halloween Microwave Popcorn Wrappers

By special request, I have popcorn wrappers for you! Two of them are for the mini size packs and two for the regular size packs.
I recommend you only print one to try first because as in all products, a different brand may be a little different size. If the wrappers need a little adjusting, you will be able to find out quickly before you print out several that may not fit.
The assorted graphics will do for both boys and girls. All you need to do is print, cut out, and wrap around your unopened microwave popcorn pack and tape in the back. You then have little Halloween treat, ready to give on Halloween!
These popcorn wrappers are made at 300 ppi but will print out at 100% their normal size.
The Regular size microwave popcorn wrapper is 9.50 x 6.25 inches
The Mini size microwave popcorn wrapper is 7.50 x 4.75 inches
Artwork used in these are by The Graphic Depot.

More Pop Top Tab Bracelets

Yesterday I made bracelets with my 15 year old Grand Daughter. She loves these bracelets so I was thinking that maybe we could try putting some beads on one. I have a variety of colors in the pony beads which I thought would work with the larger holes that they have. Purple is one of her favorite colors so this is what we made.
To make these bracelets with the beads, simply follow the instructions given in the links of my previous post.
The only change in the instructions would be to add the bead as in the third photo below. Easy!!
We were also thinking that different colors of elastic cording would be pretty to use on these....but where can we find the colored elastic cording? I really would love to find it in black and colors.
Anyone know?
