Hi, I’m Bryce Shivers.
Hi, I’m Lisa Eversman.
And we put birds on things.

Catered Crop Recipe Swap Button

This challenge is inspired by a hilarious sketch that aired on the IFC show Portlandia, co-starring, co-created, and co-written by Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. The show starts out with Bryce Shivers (Armisen) and Lisa Eversman (Brownstein) showing off all of their crafts and creations that are magically made better when you “put a bird on it!”

Here’s the sketch from the 2nd episode of Portlandia’s first season.

Bring out the chickens, ducks, owls, eagles, just their feathers or eggs, or even NBA star Larry Bird, and show us how everything is magically better with a bird on it.

  • Include a link to us at Catered Crop or add our button, which you can grab on our sidebar or at our {button gallery}.
  • Link up and link often, but be sure you link up by 8:00 PM EST on Saturday, April 12.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments.
  • Check back with us on April 13 to see if you’ve won an opportunity to be a guest designer.


Our fabulous designers will be back on Sunday, April 6, with their creations. Until then I’ve curated some projects to jump start your creative juices in this Pinterest board Put a Bird On It where you can find the links to all these projects and more.
