Rosebud Kite Festival

“You can tell Sprite…” said the Memory Elephant “that calendars only work to remind you about coming events if you actually remember to look at them!”

The Rosebud Kite Festival is being held today and the Twitter Birds are already having fun but Sprite has not checked the calendar which the Memory Elephant gave her for a New Year gift and may not be aware that it is happening this weekend.

I will check the program of events at http://rosebudkitefestival.com.au/worthy2013/ and may go down to the beach to see it later.

Let’s go fly a kite! 4

The Twitter birds have been creating some kites as part of the Brilliant Chaos Facebook group http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/brilliantchaosonline/ February creating challenge.

Now it is time to give the kites a test flight.

At first Tweetelle could not get her Love kite to fly because of the butterfly weighing it down. And maybe it did not help that she was holding the tail of the kite instead of the string. But eventually, with help from the butterfly the Love kite flew!

The Global Communications kite proved to be a bit too powerful for Tweetil to handle!

The Peace Kite flew well and the Twitter birds enjoyed the ride!

My friend Leslie Graves is looking for some pictures of kites.

Lisa Lauffer created a lovely one for her on her iPad and posted it on her Artisan of creative miracles blog at
http://www.artisanofcreativemiracles.com/2013/02/creating-challenge-day-32-let-go-fly.html

Susanne Thomas created some beautiful glass ornaments with kite motifs and posted them on her Building wingspan blog at http://buildingwingspan.blogspot.com.au/2013/02/artish-journey-submission-6-lets-go-fly.html?spref=fb

And the Twitter birds are creating some for her as part of the Brilliant Chaos Facebook group http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/brilliantchaosonline/February creating challenge.

Twitter Birds are not really sure about how to make kites – at the moment they are working on them with hammer and nails!
