Suki and Chica are 5 and 4 years old, respectively. Macaws typically live for 80 to 100 years of age, so I guess I will spend the rest of my life with these wonderful creatures, and then some. In a recent post, I disclosed my desire to create the Natural Elements line of pet beds. A cat bed, adorned in fabulous feather images, is both amusing and beautiful. My parrots have inspired me to design
The Feather Bed for our un-feathered friends.
Today, I saw my dream of feathers on fabric become a reality. I am so excited to have actually created my very own custom fabric with feathers from Suki and Chica, the brilliant assistance of my photographer and dear friend Tom Brooks at http://www.brooksphotography.biz/ , and technical support from Kent Illenden at SFC Graphics, firstname.lastname@example.org .
