Hoo boy. I started this thing probably last January and just finished it 4 days before the end of October. 



I trawled ebay searching for Little People brunettes to be me and The ManFlesh and a couple of dogs to be the Beastie Grrrlz and a sofa.  The floor is wood grain scrapbook paper and the rug is a photo from a rug dealers trade magazine.



The tree is from a set of bottle brush trees with wired beads glued into it, a chenille stem for garland and a vintage mini- glass ball for the topper.



The outside, window.



The bottom where all the gazillions of little individual pine cone scales started getting glued on.  These are a big reason this took so long.  I got 3/4 done and then it sat for months and months.



The way the last of the pine cone scales were coming together at the top was not pleasing, so I added a little felt snow patch. 



Now I have to figure out where/how it will be hung up when we decorate for Christmas.

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

Thank you!  It is a 6" "paper mache" sphere.  Turns out that those spheres are actually plastic covered with a layer of paper mache, which makes the stronger and maybe harder to cut into. It also is a surprise when you're expecting to paint the inside; luckily I have a primer that works on just about anything.

Awwww!  YEY!  I have more Little People to use to make a couple more for ME-ME-ME that are non-holiday themed.  You can bet they won't be pine-coned, though.

Thank you!  I ended up with some "extra" paper mache spheres from some shipping errors and the company didn't want them back, so I have a feeling I'm just going to keep making these!
