My friend, Mary Ellen Tippin is an author.
She's written several children's books. She is making a dance musicale from her book "The Christmas Birdie" that will be performed Thanksgiving weekend, November 29, at 7:00 p.m. or Sunday, November 30, at 3:00 p.m. at Bethel College.
She asked if I would be willing to help with props. I said yes, of course, and so I have been putting together a nest that 3 little "birdies" can sit in; a haystack and also a cave. The garage has been taken over by this work in progress.
I sort of feel badly paper mache-ing over some one's wedding pictures!
My friend Caryn, who is an accomplished artist and has also been in Bible study with Mary Ellen and I for years, is helping me with this project. After we got the paper mache-ing done, we began painting this cave.
Taking a break!
One day the girls were at our house and they wanted to help too.
They helped paper mache the ceiling of the cave.
They were such hard workers and did an excellent job!
A woodpecker got into our garage to have a look-see at the cave.
