Remember a bit ago I showed you the green and black tree pendant I was working on? Well, here it is, my very first tree of life pendant on the left. Esteban asked if he could have it. He is so sweet, and I know he can appreciate the imperfections of a first try;). I got tree fever yesterday and made the tree on the right. Isabel asked for that one. My family makes me feel so good about my crafty projects.
I wanted to go even a bit smaller so I made the last one pictured. I like them so much. I figured out how to make a ring out of thicker wire to give the tree better structure and support. I added a lot of leaves (stones) and may try one with fewer leaves. I was also thinking of trying a tree without leaves, like a winter tree. They are so fun to make I am having a great time.
The children are so funny, they don't usually hang out together because there is a six year gap in their ages. So you know when they are together for a long time they are either plotting or fighting boredom. Yesterday they were watching a season of Glee together. They didn't exactly swear me to secrecy, but Sebastian would kill me if he knew I was telling about his Glee love. Don't tell him I told you. I blame it on NetFlix;).
Have a Batty Friday.
