This project started out as a Christmas gift for my daughters' piano teacher, but I loved these little trees so much that I made a variety of sizes and variations for the Christmas village on top of our piano. All of the supplies were either re-purposed, free or on-hand from a previous craft project. Right ON!
I acquired the old music book at a local antique store in a barter for an antique laundry ringer. The pages were super dark and fairly brittle, which limited any folding/rolling/shaping of the paper. I made two basic designs: a torn tree and a curly tree. Both are super easy to make, but the curly tree is a little more time-consuming.

The backyard chickens of today are much different from grandma’s chickens. They are being spoiled, getting fat and dying from obesity-related complications. In order to spare our feathered pets the deadly consequences of obesity, we must familiarize ourselves with its causes and effects, learn to recognize it, acknowledge our role in contributing to it and take affirmative steps to quash it.
