We had to travel with it from Missouri to Georgia and i was afraid it would get messed up. It arrived in one piece and i was a little sad to part with it! I like it better than the first one i made and may have to make another one for myself!

This year in Jeremy's family we drew names and were suppose to make our gifts for Christmas. I got his sister, Lisa. A few years ago i made a paper mache deer head and i remembered she told me that she really like it. I had thought of making a couple other things and when i was at Hobby Lobby looking at fabric i saw the sliced tree trunk piece and thought about the deer head. I started collecting newspapers and doing a little bit of research on how i wanted it to look. I knew it was going to have to be a lot bigger than the one i made before. It took a little while to get the base going. The last time i used a bottle and this time it was just newspaper balled up. After i got the neck, head and ears done i tried to figure out how to do the antlers. I tried a few different things and nothing was working. I ended up cutting out the shape in cardboard. I used The Secret Garden for the words and then glued and nailed it to the sliced wood.
