About a month ago, I woke up around 5 in the morning to this odd noise in our attic. It was like something was scratching the walls.
The scratching noise was so unique it had the dog barking and the cat going cray cray! Now, we don’t store anything in the attic and there isn’t the easiest point of entry.
So, my less than cognizant self called my husband at work and shared with him this, “something weird is walking around in the attic.”
He offered to come home right away, but I didn’t believe it was an emergency because after a few minutes, the noise stopped all together. We figured it was probably a larger sized bird on the roof scratching the tile.
Fast forward to Sunday. I was in my office. Directly above my office is the attic. All of a sudden, that noise was back. I could hear it – right above me.
So, my husband gets his ladder and we go into the attic. I had my fingers crossed that it wasn’t rodents. It wasn’t. But, there’s significant evidence suggesting it was a bird.
Unfortunately, it managed to fly out before we could identify or even describe the bird. Hopefully it’s been scared off and won’t find another way in. Bye bye birdie.
This is the bullet journal I use.
The first thing I did was create a border all around the layout. I started with my cupcake/candyland house stamp from The Sassy Club. I used this acrylic block to hold the stamp and this black stamp pad.
Then I used my peppermint stamp (from Hobby Lobby) around the page. Instead of a traditional stamp pad, I colored in the stamp with my red brush marker.
Because I liked the look of the roundness of the peppermints, I continued that look using a circle diecut (as a stencil) for each day of the week (combining Saturday and Sunday into one circle). I used a green pen to draw in the circles.
Then with my red brush pen, inside the circles I wrote the days of the week and the words notes.
I thought I was all done, but the layout looked as though it was missing something. I decided to use the snowflake stamps from this Sassy Club set, this acrylic block, and again, instead of using a stamp pad, I colored in the stamp with a pink brush pen.
