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.

Hello!
I like to crochet hats and headbands, but I have no idea of how I can display them. I admit, I have looked at those mannequin heads, but they're kinda creepy. Don't want to scare off the children. If anybosy has a solution I'd be eternally grateful!

So one of my favorite songs - there's a link to it at the bottom of the page -  is from a little known Broadway musical called Beauty and the Beast and one of my favorite motifs (if you will) is the pink rose. So I made a giant one (It's about 6 or 7 feet long)!

I figured out how to make a really neat looking necklace with it.


And I also took inspiration from a Forever 21 headband I saw my friend wearing a while ago and wrapped it around my head a couple of times. =]





Here is my song. It's called "Is This Home" from Beauty and the Beast.

My mom is going to a little craft store tom., and I was wondering if they could possibly sell it there.
If not, where else would it be sold?
