This delicious wallpaper pack door prize is from Tina at Patina Paperie
As well as lovely velvet leaves for each tweet bag.
And it is so sweet that previous sponsors have come again sent pretties for our friends to play with. Mitzi shipped us a boxful of vintage wallpaper die cut birds and other treats.
Cathy sent fabulous lace embellishments.
Linda sent tweets for the bags too.
Plus a piece of art for the drawing, and my fave popcorn for me to snack on and keep my energy up with preparing for the party. She also had a clever move, and used large trash bags as cushioning for the box. I thought it was a useful idea, I was able to use all the bags over the weekend in our waste cans as opposed to just "trashing" some tissue if she'd used that instead.
Sissy provided doves for the project as well as a necklace for the drawing. And my sister, Bobbie made up a goodie bag to add to the drawing too. Sister Terry brought a cooler filled with baked goods, bags of beads for the sacks of tweets, as well as a messenger bag of beautiful items as a door prize (she is an over achiever, and I LOVE it).
Lori gave us one of her gorgeous creations to gift some lucky someone with.
This is a scrap pack from Kristi.
Gosh, I sincerely hope I didn't leave anyone out. I've tried to show photos of the gifts as they arrived over the last few months, then add the link to my side bar. If you were a sponsor and I didn't add you, I am so sorry. Please let me know and I'll put your link up right away.
Thank you all for your help in bringing even wider smiles to the happy Birdsong faces.
During our weekend, I was also hosting a family reunion, so my Handsome Husband could play some golf with his bros while all of the ladies crafted and created. Last minute arrivals to the giftie bags could have gotten overlooked in the chaos, and if you were someone left out, please send me a message so I can fix it.
The list will be on my sidebar till Birdsong 4 begins. Yep, I'm planning another one. How could I not??? It's way, way, too much fun. I'm also hoping to do a "Raven Song" craft day in the studio for Halloween and time it around First Fridays in the West Bottoms Antique District in KC. (I even started the project I have in mind for it)

I've tried Feedly myself and basically all you do is sign up and it will import all your Google Reader sites in the click of a mouse. Very, very, very simple.Bloglovin is another good one.
You can also follow my blog through Networked Blogs and read it on FaceBook that way. There is a list of different reader site buttons on my sidebar that you can click on to follow me in.
Hope I'll still be seeing you around!
