My "Christmas Birds" Killian and Kaleena and I send our best wishes for a very Happy Holiday season to you and your flocks!

On the topic of holidays and gift giving, I'd like to tell you about Parrot Toy Angels, an all-volunteer organization committed to providing toys, food and other avian supplies to companion birds in difficult situations. Each year they have fundraising auctions on eBay, and it's a great chance to get some fantastic gifts (for your human and bird friends) and help parrots at the same time!

I donated one of my "scrap clay" bird necklaces which you can view here: Cockatoo Necklace. This year's auctions run until December 11th, and to view all items that are up for sale, please go to the Parrot Toy Angels eBay store: http://stores.ebay.com/parrottoyangels

These new creations were made using rubber stamps impressed in black clay, then highlighted with metallic pigment powders for color, and embellished with beads. They have a unique and eye catching look that is hard to capture in photos!

I've made these as magnets, which can be easily altered to also use as ornaments if you prefer. Some of the larger ones also look fantastic in my magnetic display frames as well, as wall or table art.

The birds represented resemble a Blue and Gold Macaw, Male Eclectus, Blue Headed Pionus, White Bellied Caique, Black Headed Caique, a sculpted Lovebird on a cage, and a Senegal. Tthese pieces are on eBay until Thursday. (Any unsold pieces will then be listed in my Joy Magnet Art Etsy Shop.)

New on auction are an assortment of jewelry including some gorgeous earrings with feathers donated by my female Eclectus! There is also an African Grey necklace with removable charm, a "bird poop" necklace, and another colorful "scrap clay" bird necklace. ALL of this month's auctions are only going for FIVE DAYS, and end on Thursday.

The plan for December was to have both male and female Eclectus for the Bird of the Month, but the rush of Christmas orders cut me short on time, so it's just the males! Watch for females in February!

In this collection, there is a male Eclectus bracelet charm, necklace charm, charm on a cord necklace, beaded bracelet, and a beaded necklace and earring set. The auctions are up until Thursday night on ebay.

One of my parrot pins is featured in the December issue of German In Style magazine!

It is the first time my parrot art has been featured in a "non-parrot" publication, so that was pretty exciting!
