For the display/preview/whatever it is picture:
One day while I was playing photographer in my mother's garden, I came across a strange and mysterious plant hiding beneath another weird plant.
I looked and ,to my surprise, a little tree had popped up!
I very carefully yanked it up by the roots and set it atop my counter and, upon closer examination, found that from its branches were little, tiny shooting stars.
I bid the ants to watch their heads. Sometimes the stars like to free themselves. =]
Haha not the greatest ,I'm well aware, but I thought it was cute. I started off by making stars and eventually came the falling star tree idea (while watching Stardust ^.^). I used my Mom's Pottery Barn Magazine to create the paper mache for the trunk and branches and made a bunch of little strips of the paper to make the stars. I made about 70 but I only kept the most perfect ones .
For size reference:
I named this one Halley.
