Can't decide

Holy smokes, it's May 1st already. I spent yesterday working on finishing up my craft projects for the month. I'll show you those tomorrow. Today I have one that is almost done but not quite.

I couldn't decide what to do. I didn't know if I wanted to leave it just the way it is or add a saying to it. The tail feathers on the birds are made with a blue wire that I had in my stash.


I considered writing "Life is better with friends" but didn't know if I really liked that or not.

So cast your vote for either
a) leave it as it is
b) add the saying  "Life is better with friends"
or
c) another option....please specify

It definitely needs a bit of 'text' ....I'd say on the top left & a bit 'curvy'....I like the Friends saying - your idea. But maybe something I saw online a few weeks ago..."Bird Nird". [I want that on my license plates frame now. LOL]

Ann, I LOVE this plaque. Well done.

I like your idea...of the text! The birds are AWESOME! LOVE the tails!!

Marg said...

We go for option B. We like that saying and that is what the picture portrays. Have a good Sunday.

I'm thinking that the birds are so pretty a lot of words would take away. Maybe one word at the top like "Sing" but what do I know, see I am already outvoted!

Sandra said...

i vote for text..and yours is perfect

Sandee said...

So cute, and I vote for 'B'. That's a great caption.

Have a fabulous day Ann. Big hug to you and lots of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

It's too long I think but my vote would be "Hope is the thing with feathers.." Life is better with friends is a bit mundane and this is so marvelously special it needs a special quote.

Something peppy, a lasting thought for the day.

Love the birdies! What came to my mind is something like 'You lift me up.'

My vote is B - would be so fitting with these 2 birds attached to the hip :)

Also inviting you for the meme/challenge I started 2 months ago called SEASONS -about anything and any experience (like your post here) during the Season. The photo link is open Sunday (today) through Wednesday 7pm, Pacific time. This week it's in the post SEASONS- Whats up in May. Hope to see you there!

Well, Ann, I think the words would be PERFECT added to JUST ADORABLE!!!...:)JP

Lin said...

I dunno....does one really go through life without friends??? I'm not big on the saying...but I cannot offer a better one, so I guess I should just be quiet. Sorry. I'm no help, but it IS cute!!

Hi, Love the plaque --but it definitely needs text.. I can't think of anything any better than what you chose...

Hugs,
Betsy

LOVE! Fabulous Ann and I like the idea of a saying as you have room above the small bird to add one. Thinking some saying about how life is easier with friends?

OK, third time lucky!
"Those that will always help a friend, will always have a friend."
"I get by with a little help from my friends."
"Sometimes all you need is a little support and to know someone is there to catch you if you fall."
Quitting now before I mess it up again LOL! Deb xo

Patricia @ CorninmyCoffee-pot said...

Cute! I like it but agree TEXT would be the option to go with... but not too wordy. How about... instead of the word SING... you just put some musical notes...
or... "I sing because I'm happy"
I don't know... I just thought of that.
they're cute like they are... but a 3rd element, maybe a sun peeking out behind clouds...
I just want to make one now!
... I know!!!

SURPRISE US!
:)

The birdie plaque is gorgeous!! You could add "fly high" ?

SweetMarie said...

Love...love this! This is my style of happy art. I would go with Life is better with friends or something like, I've got your back. lol I would so buy this!!

Denise * KKL Primitives said...

How adorable Ann! I'm probably too late with a vote - but I would like to see some musical notes above the birds - that's it, lol

Nita Jo said...

I love this plaque, and I'm probably too late, but what I heard when I looked at it was "You lift me up" and "Love lifted me"! I also love the idea of the word "Sing" which a couple others mentioned or the musical notes. Whatever you do will be charming, I'm sure!
