The wishing tree…
Last week I caught up with my lovely mate Gemma. She expressed concern that maybe the plan for the tree (that the girls were less than excited about) might have been a little minimal-control-freak. So…we injected a bit of colour with the pink neon.
My beautiful sister and her kids popped in this week and the two of us sat over the kitchen table cutting feathers and catching up. The kids had a crack at making the bunting which was lovely and then we taped it all to the tree (you can grab my materials list over here).
it’s sorta kinda finished. OK so I probably need a few more fluttery feathery floaters … I’ll cut a few with a pretty drink in hand on Friday evening.
BUT I love this tree. It just seems to perfectly sum up the year that 2012 has been for me. My final folio was all about hopes and dreams. So, I’ve done a lot of word stealing this year and in the midst of all the word stealing I came across this quote which I’ve adapted for the purposes of fitting it to my wishing tree.
Throw your dreams into space like a feather, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.
I hope that you and your kin have a festive season full to overflowing with the good stuff.
And another thing…
I spent time with lovely, lovely Bren this week. Be sure to snoop around her gorgeous Creative Space right here.
