If I measured, it may not have
had that bald patch on the left.
I was paired with Rosa of Contrastes-RosaMaria for the Christmas in July swap. One of my items is in process, but one is already completed. It's a pipe cleaner Christmas tree! And, it cost nothing, since the pipe cleaners were left in the teacher's cafeteria last year. I have no idea how long any of those donations stay in the cafeteria before I get there, but I do know that after I get there, they're gone. I've scored games, workbooks to handout to parents who claim they don't know what to do to help their children (here, have a workbook!), construction paper, bulletin board border, and on and on. I used a blend of two tutorials from Pucci Collective and Martha Stewart's website, and of course I tweaked it somewhat. First, I didn't measure. I eyeballed it, cause that's how I roll, y'all. Plus, I pushed the branches upwards, because real trees don't grow straight out. And here's what I created. Ta day! (that's a combination of "ta da" and "today", and it's what Tootie Pie used to say).
I have crooked teeth from my parents and a wacky arm from a stroke. My daughter describes me as funny and smart, while she describes the other Linda from Mommy and Me as pretty and nice. So, I'm not pretty nor nice. I love the French people, French language (I'm fluent), French food, culture, architecture... In short, all of France! I'll read anything in front of me. I know more about middle school math than, well, anyone, INCLUDING my middle school math teacher husband (let's see if he reads this). I'm not happy if I'm not painting something.
