I haven’t been nearly as active on the site lately as I wish I could but I did want to share an owl themed fall wreath I made for the front door and some gel window clings I found on the cheap.

Personally, I’m more excited at the Christmas owl ornament I found at the craft store the other day:

Let’s get this show on the road!

Happy Valentines Day from The Christmas Owl! We certainly hope you have a wonderful lover’s holiday and take the time today to remind the special people in your life just how much they mean to you. Even for the single, there is still fun to be had on a day like today. From kid’s parties to cupcakes at the office, there is something redeemable in this holiday even for those with the blackest of hearts. I just hope you were spared those awful conversation heart candy. Bleck!

If you’re in need of some last-minute Valentine printables, be sure to hit the link below where I grabbed the adorable vintage Owl Valentine used in the header.

HAPPY V DAY!

I found myself with a sweet tooth this weekend so I decided to make a variation of my owl sugar cookie using ‘flood icing’. This was my first attempt at that type of icing technique, so pardon the rough edges. I decided to use pink and white royal icing to match the upcoming holiday, along with yellow candy melts, chocolate sprinkles for the eyelashes, and m&m’s minis for the beak. These make for a simple themed cookie idea when you need to crank out a lot for a children’s party or event.

Happy Owlentines Day!

Ordinary Mommy is back with some great new Valentines Day inspired owls! I absolutely love her felt creations that she sells on Etsy, and I was delighted to find she had posted a few Valentine inspired owls for the taking. She has many more variations and sizes of her unique projects over at her Etsy store.

The Little Red Riding Hood set is amazing!
