I thought this title is very appropriate for todays post. All day I have been using the essential oil of "Gratitude". This oil is a blend of many oils made specially to sooth the body and foster a grateful attitude.
Yesterday a small package arrived in the mail. It's always exciting when a package arrives but this one was special.This package contained my little birdies from the "Birds of Change" exchange. This was my first exchange or swap as they are sometimes called. Blogging has opened my world to many sweet people who I would have never meet otherwise. I have so many new friends and I am so Grateful! These are the 5 birds I received.

Aren't they the cutest! Imagine all the work that went into each little bird. The very bright one is made of some kind of dough almost like a cookie and painted. 3 are sewed and the fat little white birdie has blue ribbons for ears! Two are embroidered with flowers. Love the owl.

This was the deal. Make 5 birds of any substance you choose. Send them to the Mother Bird, Regina, who collected over 300 birds! She then sends you back 5 birds made by 5 different people. Can you imagine what Regina's house looked like with all those birds flying all over the house! Must have been fun.
Thank you everyone for sharing your talents and effort. These sweeties are perched on branches on my Valentine, soon to be Easter tree, and I am grateful! Some of you included cards with your blog addy and I will be over for a visit and to persoanlly Thank you.

If you would like to know more about Essential Oils and how they can made a huge and wonderful change in your life click on the word GRATITUDE in the title to link to my website.

Thank you for your sweet comment on my post about my daughter's cat. From reading your post I'll bet you and my Brookie could be friends if you were to meet.

I'm glad you liked the bird I made! I got one of yours too. I like the use of old hymns. Great idea! I responded to your comments on my blog.

Your birds are all lovely. I also participated in the swap and yours are all different from mine. This was also my first swap and it was a great experience!
