I thought budgies were the new flamingo's, that were the new llamas, that were the new sloths, that were the new bunnies, that were the new horses, that were the new donkeys, that were the new owls.
Craft is a Noah's ark of animal motifs and what begins as a cute new image on indie designer goods often ends up done to death on everything from school stationary at Officeworks, to kids undies from Target.

This is my effort to fly the flag for Aussie Fauna! Still plenty of cute critters to choose from too. Maybe a ring tailed possum will be next.
