MSED: Bird a Day #120 Cinnamon Ornaments

I'm back with some new birds! This project was way too much fun and it smelled fantastic! I used Martha Stewart's cinnamon dough recipe which is basically ground cinnamon, apple sauce and white glue. I rolled and cut out cute little bird shapes. After they were dry, I just used some craft acrylics that I had on hand and some glitter pens. 

These look better in person and I can officially say that I am not happy with my digital camera any more.  I was so much happier with my camera when I got it than i am now. when I bemoaned that fact to my sister she told me that digital camera's sensors go bad after a while, especially if you take a lot of night time pictures. It seems that in dim light the shutter has to be open for longer periods of time exposing this delicate little wussy sensor to too much exposing? I never knew. For as much money as they cost they should have tougher sensors that last. And that's all I'm going to say about that!


  1. What lovely Christmas tree decorations your birds make. As for your digital camera I think it is just trial and error as i am finding out with my new camera. Thanks for your kind comment......xx
