Stickers, cookies, and dogs...

These are definitely a few of my favorite things.  That's why I was sooo stoked to open up my mail the other day and find some new stickers from Burly Bird!  A portion of the money from each sticker goes towards bird conservation efforts.  Check 'em out!  I immediately spruced up my car, my bike (I had a sweet spot created by removing my ex-boyfriend's band's sticker) and my water bottle...




They seem like they're good quality stickers and for a good quality cause too!

I've never really done the whole holiday baking thing but for some reason this year I was itching to bake some cookies and decorate them.  So I did that today.  My mom had given me some old cookie cutters when she cleaned out her kitchen a couple years ago, so that's what I used.  Plus my own interpretation of birds.


They came out alright.  Until I decorated them.  I am not good with decorations.  I will only show you the best ones.


I'm dog-sitting this weekend for my friends who watched my dogs over Thanksgiving.  It's been fun, the dogs all get along, and they all beg for cookies equally well...


Luckily my coworker had baked some dog cookies for us so I had something to give them.

Now for some yard birds... I managed to peek out the window while waiting for my cookies to bake and found a couple nice birds, like a Yellow-rumped Warbler:


Juncos have so much variation in coloring that there's always one in the yard that stands out...


I think she got a necklace for Christmas.  Anyway, that's all for today, the dogs are getting restless...  Plus it's almost time to get festive!  Please accept this photo of my lack of cookie-decorating skills as your holiday gift:


Happy Holidays!
