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  Wink.

For size reference:

I named this one Halley.

Oh, I love it! There's something about the idea of a falling star tree that rather touches my heart.  Smiley (Stardust is one of my favorite movies, too.) It's very pretty, and such a creative idea.

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!
