let's talk turkey...and a winner...

A month or so ago, I noticed I was getting a lot of hits from a blog I'd never heard of.  Of course, I clicked on the link, and I was taken to a cute blog with lots of paper crafting projects.  One particular post was a cute turkey card...and the designer of the card had credited me with the original idea - how nice was that?!?  It doesn't happen very often.  Unfortunately, I didn't save the blog address...but I did receive a handful of e-mails asking about my original project.  I promised I would share more information here on my blog...I apologize to those who asked...it's taken me longer than I expected.

So...here's a scan of my original project as it appeared in the issue - it was a calendar topper I made for a Paper Crafts Magazine assignment several years ago - November 2004.


The turkey image was originally clip art from "The Best of Creative Lettering Combo" CD.  I broke down the image and turned it into a paper piecing pattern for this project.  {I miss paper piecing.  I found it enjoyable and relaxing and cute and fun...} 

Hopefully this is helpful to those who asked...and maybe even for some of you who didn't ask!  Please let me know if you have any other questions about this project. :o)

Also...because of recent events in my personal life (that you have all read about here on my blog), I neglected to choose a winner for the Paper Crafts Gourmet book last Friday.  So...without further ado...and with help from the trusted Random.org...the winner is...image
