    What a beautiful Life Tree. I hope to be able to make one of these before too long. I really like the colors you used and the fact that you can still see the Tree. Some people use so many beads that the tree gets lost.

    This is sooooooooooooooo great. I haven’t tried this yet – looks intimidating to me. Is there a tute on it out there somewhere? Congrats. on this one. Make these in all colors – they will all sell!!!!!! FA-VO-RI-TE!!!!!

    Thank you everyone! Linda and Ravin..I did see a tute on youtube except I did mine a bit different.. she started with the branches and I started with the roots..if that makes any sense.. I will try to do a simple tute on here but it may take me a few days.. stupid doctor appt today so this day is ruined but hopefully i can get at it tomorrow..I’m also working on an article to submit to our local newspaper to stir up some local interest in my liberation treatment.. so please be patient with me and I will get it done :)
