As simple as it may be, designs have to start somewhere. I often just jot down a really simple drawing (and I mean simple) on scraps of paper, or when I am really good I draw in my design book ideas of new things and suggestions for products. I do this so I don't forget as I have a short memory for ideas, well there is so many just floating around. It is not unusual to have scrap of paper knocking around the keyboard of my computer to jog my memory for a few weeks before I put it to work to become a real product. BTW any bit of paper is fair game for a drawing!
Here is the process of the "Birdie" and I know ya'll are gonna laugh, but here it is in 4 steps. Now my dear arty friends my scrappy friends have asked me to make these birdies so no laughing cos I might find out you have done these on your latest ATC's or something. Now they are not made yet, maybe in the next 2 weeks, but please getting things manufactured sometimes has it's pitfalls and I may not get these back for a month......oh and they are coming in two sizes......wings are separate as well. best, JVO
