  1. You know, I saw that tutorial…I guess on Geninne’s blog? And I wondered about just this issue (birdie dive bombs)! (Though, looking back at the original tutorial, I guess the hole *is* a good bit further forward.) But looking at your nativity scene, it occurred to me that you could somehow hang the birdies overhead, and then it would look as if they’re looking down on/flying in to join the scene. 🙂 Anyway, they’re really very lovely.

  2. I’m laughing too, the birds are so cute, and I think even more so because they are descending, gives them character! I love the way that you painted them! xo
