Build your own "nest"? I don't have a clue what I'd make. Buttercup is so sweet I might have to put on my thinking cap. Whistling

Pretend you are a bird...thinking about things you can build a nest with.

Or create one out of something.

NO RULES! Buttercup needs a nest. Lovey dubby

I'm not sure, Chris will need to let us know. I was kind of thinking about the size of a small soup bowl for the nest. I'll send this link to Chris and maybe she can let us know.

Rolling on the floor laughing

Ooooo, I'm loving this one. My "ball" ended up in a rolling totem/obelisk (but I did make one) ... so I'm on to this contest. I have my idea. I'm not sure whether it strictly meets the critera, but I often "color outside of the lines". So what's new?

I'm off and running. Good luck, everyone. Can't wait to see these.

Great idea, Becky ... and thanks for contributing the prize, Chris. Hope I win it. Tee hee.

I agree Rolling on the floor laughing
