having the Birmingham Museum of art in my backyard


with my kids home for summer vacation, we’ve turned to making crafts in the art studio. i decoupaged the cages & the sign onto an ugly birdhouse. i do have instructions for doing so…in this blog (i think the post is titled 2me4art project birdhouses). the Birmingham Museum of Art’s gift shops bags are clear with just the name of the museum, an easy thing to cut up & use to decorate the bird house. this birdhouse is located beside my deck. easily within view of any upcoming residents.

      Oh, it was SO MUCH FUN. I felt like a kid in kindergarten. An art project just for me, just for fun. It turned out great & was highly addictive fun. I have since made an “art studio” & I’m in the process of making a “mother nature church” for the stained glass windows…i used NAIL POLISH! I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed that. I will post the process because it would be so easy for others to make & have FUN doing so. Thank you, I wish you could live in it too, you’d just have to push me off to the side for the room. 🙂 ~amy


  2. I like this project so much that i saved a picture of it for future inspiration. Have any birds moved in yet?


  3. Waiting for the shots when the birds move in!

    Oh, to be a bird in your garden, Amy! They must surely be delighted!

      I hope so. So far i have no tenants. 😦 But it looks great! I just made an art studio bird house to put up. My daughter made a beach house. It is so much fun! ~amy

        I wish I could do something like that in our garden too. Your artistic projects are very inspirational.

        If they are, as YOU say, inspirational, then you should be inspired to make your own, Reggie! Go buy an unfinished birdhouse at an arts & crafts store, along with paper & the right paint colors & a bottle of decoupage! Consider this a challenge, Reggie. Made with a smile on my face! 🙂 ~amy
