Tell your Representatives: Vote "No" on Devestating Environmental Bill!


Dear Omss,

Imagine an America with no endangered species protection, no federal funding specifically for migratory bird conservation, and scant ability to protect our vanishing wetlands. This shocking possibility could become a reality if the U.S. House of Representatives gains passage of a new environmental spending bill.  Will you help us fight it?

H.R. 2584 is one of the worst assaults on birds and other wildlife ever to come before Congress. The bill is loaded with devastating funding cuts and anti-environmental provisions that will wreak havoc on our land, water, air, and wildlife.

This includes gutting the Endangered Species Act, the Neotropical Migratory Bird Treaty Act, the North American Wetlands Conservation Act, and state wildlife grants.

We need you to act now to tell your Representative to vote against these funding cuts and anti-environmental provisions and to vote "NO" on H.R. 2584. For maximum impact, please call your Representatives (instructions found here).

Thank you for your help in ensuring the next generation of Americans will have a chance to appreciate the native birds we enjoy today.

Cool Customers: Rainbow Party!

Posted: 25 Jul 2011 03:28 AM PDT

Today's beautifully colorful Rainbow Birthday Party was sent to us by the talented Kimberly from the events company The Curly Girls, who styled our "Over The Rainbow" party printables for her daughter, Yvonne's 7th Birthday!

Here's what Kimberly had to say about their special day:

Invites: My daughter, Yvonne, drew her rainbow invitation and we made color copies of her drawing for the invite then put the info on the back - it isn't the perfect looking invite, but I thought it was cute and loved that she created it. The wording is "Yvonne's birthday" across the top and then "rainbows make me smile" (on the side).

Favors: The Favor bags contained Rainbow wands and packs of sidewalk chalk in rainbow colors, embellished with Birds' Party favor tags and cupcake toppers.

Desserts Table: The day of the party it was Super windy, hence the "blowing" off stuff in some of the pics. ;) The desserts table was decorated with the printable pennant banner. I had all of the buffet labels made for the desserts table but because it was so windy, I was not able to use them.

Party Games: "Rainbow tag" and "Follow the Rainbow" - both games thought of by my daughter.


Thank you so much Kimberly and Yvonne, for sharing your magical day with us! :)
