Celebrations: The Owls Have Landed {Halloween Décor}

Halloween Owl Decor via homework | carolynshomework.comI usually like to wait until October 1st to break out the Halloween décor but since tomorrow is The Inspiration Board creative party, I’m starting a day early. Considering some malls already have holiday décor up, I think it’s okay.

Inkling: 2012 owl lover calendar


I’m so happy to be able to share the Owl Lover Calendar with you again this year. Last year, I stumbled upon the site My Owl Barn and shared the link to the free downloadable Owl Calendar. 


This year, Shivani of My Owl Barn emailed me to let me know that the 2012 calendar was available for download. Here’s what Shivani said:

Owl Lover 2012 calendar project is the encore of our last year's "Owl Lover" calendar project - a collaborative project between My Owl Barn and 30 international artists. The project was featured on several reputed blogs like decor8, poppytalk, and the calendar was downloaded by almost a hundred thousand owl lovers all over the world. The calendar page received more than 10,000 likes on Facebook.


The best part about this calendar download is that you can choose from 45 owl images created by artists (likes of Suzy Ultman, Jo James, Juliette Crane and Night Owl Paper Goods).


The images in this post are from the Owl Lover calendar that I just created from the Owl Barn site.


Honestly, it was hard to choose from the variety of owl images.


Once I had made my selections, I simply downloaded the PDF and printed out my calendar on heavy water color paper.


Shivani of My Owl Barn is so generous to share this calendar with the world and even invites everyone to use the calendar as a gift for family and friends.


I’m deciding whether to put my calendar pages on my mini memo board or

 
prop the calendar up on my desk.


I know one thing, I’ll be printing out more calendars and using them as gifts for the holidays.

Thank you so much Shivani {My Owl Barn} for your creating this beautiful calendar and allowing me to share it.

Little Craft: scare owl

Have you seen those plastic owls that people put in their gardens to scare away other birds and pests? Some even move their heads and say “hoo hoo”.  I’m not sure how effective they are. I’ve heard stories of real birds landing on top of them.

To test out a scare owl, you can make one with your little crafters. This is a great project if you’ve planted a new garden and are trying to establish seedlings. I made this scare owl out of throw away plastic so that it would be water proof in my garden.

The body of the owl is an ice cream lid, the wings are cut from a frozen food tray and the feathers are made from plastic sheet protectors.

I used my glue gun to assemble the pieces. Regular glue would be more kid friendly for this project, just make sure the glue you use will hold up in hot or wet weather.

Once the body, feathers and wings are assembled, glue on flat marbles for the eyes and a bead for the nose. Glue your scare owl to a stick and let your little crafters place it in the garden.

Hopefully, it will scare away any pesky critters. If not, it’s still a cute plant stick.

Show and Tell: free owl calendar

If you haven’t purchased or made your 2011 calendar yet, you need to check this out. I’ve seen a lot of free calendar downloads but this one was so unique I had to share it with you.

It’s the “Owl Lover 2011 Calendar”.


What’s unique is that there are 30 illustrations to choose from. Over 30 artists collaborated on this project. Each illustration has a drop down menu where you can choose which month to assign to it. After you finish choosing your 12 illustrations you simply download the calendar and print it out.


 Here are the illustrations that I chose:
