It was my dream to start My Laughing Birds.  It was a place where my creativity blended with my enthusiasm and love for parrots.  I love being home among their busy lives. We started Too Crazy Birdy Hotel in 2014 and it has became so welcome in the community of birds. Before having the privilege of caring for these feathered babies I constantly created quilts and embroidery to share with my friends and family.   I have now blended these two passions, creating designs that show case these majestic birds. I  also was developing safe huts, and fancy collars to help parrots stop plucking.  All is a labour of love done while I am caring for parrots. They love it.

The direction changed, to support my love ones with Face masks. This journey started in March by perfecting a pattern that was a good fit, easy to assemble, and give you the protection when you are among crowds.  I sewed over 150 masks and tested them on my circle of family and friends.  I now offer them to you.  All Masks are 100% quilting cotton, for the highest quality quilts stores, not fabric barns.  They are made of funky designs we use for quilts, sea themes, floral designs, birds, etc.   .We post current designs on our website and our Facebook page.  We are self-isolating and creating from the parrot material I collected for another project..  We support our local Quilt stores, most especially Serge and Sew, Nanaimo and Sweet Pea Quilting, Parksville.  Thus, colour combinations are unique to many of the masks.  I am passionate about parrots and many designs feature them. 

We also have a supplier of exclusive fabric designed 100% cotton, that is exquisite.  I have focused on parrots again for this fabric, but can offer some designs to our fellow animal lovers, for cats and dogs.

All masks are fitted to the face and do not need a nose band.  Also, are high quality cotton on the front and back, top stitched, and crafted with the skill of a professional quilter. This is the labour of love and the desire to support people.
