Live Laugh Love

I made this little pencil holder this evening after seeing one posted here able mabels
Be sure to check out her cute little magnets for sale.

The little owls are so in right now and just to ding dang cute... I have always loved owls.
I took a piece of wood and cut it down with my husbands skill saw, whoa... that thing scares the heck out of me. Power tools with such force aren't my thing, now the drill I don't mind. I drilled a hole in the top to hold the pencil, sanded it down and then painted the top and bottom with some craft paint. I then cut the paper to fit, decoupaged it on and waited for it to dry and sanded the edges. I used Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink around the edges. The paper is from We R Memory Keepers, the white out collection, the little owl is from a package of dimensional.

You are so creative! Don't get me near power tools. They scare me. I may cut off something I'll need later. Love the birdie background too.
