About

Hello, and welcome to my little blog!

My name is Paula Gibbs (aka Paulabirdy) and I live in Pensacola, FL, with my husband and baby. Before Camilla arrived this blog was mostly about arts + crafts, but now it’s mostly baby. I feel a little bit bad about that but hey, priorities change when your life changes. Now my days are full of taking care of my girl and at night I might sew or paint a little or I might just sit down with a book. Mostly I keep this blog in order to remind myself to take photos of the special and not-so-special moments so she can look at them when she’s older.

I appreciate all my readers and commenters very much — thanks for stopping by!

  1. I came across your blog when searching for pillowcase dresses. I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your creations and your photos. You are so creative, I love it! What camera do you use? Beautiful cards!

  2. Hi Paula!

    I finally made it to your blog, and it promises to become one I’ll check regularly. I like your illustration work, and the design of your business cards is both cute and polished. :)

  3. I came across your blog looking for “sparrow stamps”. I fell in love with the cute little sparrow that you stamped on note cards. I am crafting some little girl dresses (somewhat of a hobby/side business) and have decided on the name chestnut sparrow. I am looking for a sparrow to use for my graphics to stamp on hang tags and use on signs etc. I did not want to use your cute graphic without permission. I am willing to pay for a stamp or for graphics. Please let me know your thoughts. Your work is beautiful!

  4. Hi Paula – I’m an Anglican vicar of some small rural churhes in the English Lake District. I spotted your wonderful stippled black and white picture of an oak leaf and acorn in your Oct 2007 archive. It would be perfect as a cover picture for our October news letter/parish magazine as we begin autumn here. This is given out to all in the parishes free as a service to the community. Would it possible for us to use this from your site?

    Blessings – Pete

  5. HI PAULA – I’M NOT SURE IF YOU REMEMBER ME – I’M YOUR HUBBY’S AUNT (BRIAN’S SISTER). I HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT YOUR WEB SITE, GETTING THE SCOOP ON THE PREGNANCY, ETC. I LOOKED TODAY AT THE GUMDROP PILLOWS AND WILL DEFINITELY PUT THEM ON MY LIST OF “TO DO’S” – VERY CUTE AND WILL EAT UP SOME OF MY VERY LARGE STASH OF FABRIC. I WAS ALSO WONDERING IF YOU ARE REGISTERED FOR BABY GIFTS AND/OR HAVE A “THEME” (YOU SEEMS LIKE A THEME PERSON!). WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN A COUPLE OF CROCHET OR KNIT (CAN’T REMEMBER) SMALL BABY BLANKETS THAT WERE GIFTS FROM JOSH’S GRANDMOTHER (MY MOM) WHEN I HAD MY FIRST BABY (14 YEARS AGO). ONE IS YELLOW AND ONE IS A SOFT ORANGE. NEITHER ARE REAL BIG – MAYBE ABOUT 36″ X 40″. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN HAVING THEM (MADE BY YOUR BABY’S GREAT GRANDMOTHER), LET ME KNOW.

    GLAD TO HEAR ALL IS GOING WELL. I’D LOVE TO SEE MORE PICTURES OF YOU AND JOSH. TAKE CARE. DAWN

  6. Hi! I saw your blog when searching for pillowcase purses. Thought I’d drop a line and say hi. I just love little blogs like yours. Keep up the good work!

  7. It’s been a while since I’ve been here. Your photos have gotten fantastic. Do you constantly use daylight-balanced light bulbs in your house, or does your camera just have super magic white balance? The coloring is fantastic.
