Great Horned Owl



I was in my lifetime only slightly more excited when I saw a tiny little hoot owl walking to my car after classes one night in the mid-80's.

But tonight, I actually SPOTTED and saw this mighty owl that's been making noises in our backyard, high atop a dead tree. Well, again, not THIS owl, but the same breed.

I looked him/her up online and saw that they are staking out their breeding/roosting territory now through Feb. My husband made a house, so we'll need to seriously hurry to get it high in a tree.

And, of course, now precautions must be made to protect my Oliver. He'd be a delicious meal for a roosting owl! Eek.

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
HOP START
Oh, guess what else is going on...
