Pink Flamingoes

I thought you might like to see how it is getting together, minus legs.
Just need to smooth off the edges, Now i have to wait for more cardboard.

New Baby

I Almost forgot to tell you of the Most Wonderful News.
My Niece had a baby girl on the 7th January. I am now a Great Aunty. Both mother and baby are doing well and Dad is Just As Happy. They are such a wonderful family.

Pink Flamingoes

Started a new project today, Large Pink Flamingos in 3 dimensional cardboard. I will be making 3 of them, going from left to right, we have 2 main body pieces, 2 inner body pieces minus beak, 3 inner but i think i might do 5 body pieces without neck and face and 2 wing pieces. They will be taped together leaving spaces with cardboard and double sided tape to help give it the 3D look. The legs will be dowels. They will be just slightly smaller than life sized for Renees classroom as they will be learning about Hawaii. The class will be decorating them to finish them off. This is the body for one, i will be doing this 2 more times. It is great to get back into creating again! My son Mark is providing me with the cardboard from work instead of the boxed getting crushed.
Hardest part of it for me is the posting of pictures, my camera screen is broken so i have to just shoot and hope i get a good picture, at least it still works!

Holiday Pics

View from the mountain tops at a Retreat Farm. Every where you see amazing coconut trees, You cannot tell from this but the trees are far away, a valley ridge is between the flowers in the front and the trees behind. All is crisp, clean and very peaceful.
A cool clean pool to swim in. lots of walks to do on many different level grounds.
This is one of the beaches, this picture is a little washed out, the sand is actually dark in colour, more of a dark grey actually.
