Meet stumpy, a little tree stump. Sometime in March I am taking part in a group show called Flora + Fauna. I am excited to make plush trees and plants, and maybe even some weird little flowers for the show. I asked if I could make a life sized tree stump, and got the go ahead. I decided to make a few small ones first, so I could play around with differen’t fabrics for the bark. Stumpy is my first try.
He is obviously sad because he has been chopped down. What Stumpy does not realize is a tree stump is good for something—a resting spot! I think maybe its time to reread The Giving Tree to prove it to him.
In other strange news (because yes, referring to a plush tree stump as if it is real is a little strange) Tom and I have become Lost devotees! It’s funny because I always assumed the show Lost was a reality show, and would have never thought to Netflix it. Turns out not only is it not a reality show, but one of the main characters is Charlie from Party Of Five (haha) Our friend Brett (also a brainwashed devotee) convinced Tom and I to give it a try. Now it is a sick sad LOST world here at our house. Last night..and I am ashamed to admit it…butonce the kids were asleep … we watched all four episodes from season 1 disc 2! All 4!! Right in a row!! Sick and twisted I know, but we just couldn’t help ourselves!
