The Little House Christmas Tree 2011
A very Merry Christmas to All and hopefully a wonderful and Happy New Year
I made this to honor my parents who love animals and birds. They always taught us to appreciate nature and to be responsible in its care.
My Mother especially has always encouraged my artistic endeavors and Daddy didn't complain too much when I would "borrow" his tools as a teenager.
Thank you, Mother and Daddy for a great childhood and your continued love and support!
(The birds are made from Qtips/cotton swabs-buds; painted with acrylic craft paint; micro bead eyes and paper beaks, wings and head feathers. The glittery branches are made of dried weed roots gathered from my back yard, "painted" with glue and dredged into silver and white glitter.
