Wow, Another Page!

I got a new bird yesterday. Actually I got him a little over a week ago but when he didn't eat for 4 days and was sitting on the bottom of the cage, not even on his feet, I took him back. I was so happy to hear they'd take him straight to the vet. We hear such awful stories about the treatment of animals in stores and mills. When I called back later the manager told me the vet thought he'd make it and it was mites that were the problem. She said she'd put my name on him when she got him back so I could rebuy him. Then she took ALL the canaries for treatment. This was at PetCo so they really do take care of the animals.

Because I missed him after I took him back to the store I made a Zentangle with him. Now that I've got him back I made a journal page that I had pre-prepped with paint, about him. The zentangle is there rather than his picture. Now that I think about it, I should have had both picture and zentangle. Oh well, I guess I'll have to do another page sometime.

By the way, he is doing great now. He's hopping all over the place, eating the veggies I put in the cage and his seeds. He's even done some chirping. Cross your fingers he stays this way!

Helena ( Creating a Likeness )offered to make me some photo corners and I thank you for the offer Helena. As you can see, I made a couple for this picture and they are much larger than the punch cuts out. I appreciate your offer so much though.


  1. Oh what a cutie! I hope your birdie stays very healthy and does as well as my little Sweet Pea---who pretty much owns the studio now...LOL!!
    Birds are so sweet....♥


  2. How very cool! So glad you were able to get help for him in time.

    Sweet pages as well!

  3. I'm so glad your new friend is doing well. I've been looking through your latest posts and really enjoy your positive outlook on life as reflected in your art.
    And thank you for your recent lovely comment on my blog. As always, you are so thoughtful and friendly. Re: Facebook. I was saddened to hear about the one bad comment you received- it was disheartening. I think some people act out when they think they are anonymous and say things they would never say in person.
    But obviously you are mature enough to handle such infractions.
    Have a wonderful labor day weekend!

  4. The offer still stands, any time!! I love your journal page and your new friend. And the corners, of course :)


I like being part of a community. Please share your thoughts about my blog with me. Hope you have a wonderful day!
