Tutorial for Paper Christmas Tree

how to make a christmas tree out of a paperback book

This is the cutest Christmas TreeTutorial (here) made from a paperback book. I am sure we all have a few of those laying around that we have read.
My library offers a grocery bag full of books from their discarded book table for $1.00
I get the hardcovers and use them for my altered journals.I only use the covers so now I have a reason to use the pages.I think you could really glam them up and paint them as well as adding some other bits.
I got the idea from Freda's Blog (here)
Thanks Freda.

All Is Well and I Feel Lucky

Hello dear Friends.
It has been so long since I was here.
I want to thank everyone that sent good thoughts and prayers when I was down and out!
I am still waiting for an MRI, but as near as I can figure out from my diagnosis it was sciatica!!!
I never knew such pain in my life.
I am nearly off the oxycotin and am being very careful with my movements. I hope I never have to go through that again..
So.... as I continue to improve I do feel "Lucky"  to have this over with.
I did manage to get through the artist's sales I was committed to with the help of drugs and my walking stick!
They were very long days, but  it was a successful  occasion.
 I see my Etsy Shop is nearly empty...... oh dear... .
I will have to work on that in the new year....I promise
I have had time to sit around and do a lot of thinking and I  am planning some kind of a draw for you faithful "followers" in the near future....
I hope you will stay tuned...
Meanwhile, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope you have a wonderful time with those close to you.
