Well.. just for today okay? Simply because I have to share some projects from the new Fancy Pants "Christmas Magic" line.
I think I've just about shared all my CHA projects this week. Whew
When I get home , I'll have photos from CHA to share.
***I have to tell you a little story about that tiny tree I have this projcect hanging on while I photographed it. When we were kids we made many many trips to my Aunt and Uncles Cabin in the Black Hills of SD. We all have so many great memories of that place. Not just us ..but our kids also. To this day if you asked my boys what their favorite childhood memories were,.. they would say vacations at Uncle Jakes cabin. They owned that cabin for years and years. We all miss it so much. We miss Uncle Jake .. his stories.. his garden.. his cabin.. everything. The last time I was at the cabin with my cousin Craig a few years ago.. I took a few seedlings of pine trees from the mountain right behind the cabin.. hoping I could have on for our yard at home.. as a rememberance of that place. Mine did not survive.. and I was so sad.....but little did a know, that the one I brought back for my sister.. had survived and was doing really well. It had been a few years and the subject just had never come up.. so we hadnt talked about it.
When I was at her house.. she said to me .. "oh, do you want take this little tree from Uncle Jakes cabin home and plant it?". She didnt have any place for it in her yard. I WAS THRILLED!!
She certainly has the touch..because this little tree just could not look any healthier. Now... I just have to keep it that way! Thank you sissy! I love this little tree!
This is just a little paper mache house from Micheals. I altered it with these papers and matching rubons.
