This is what inspired me:





This is my creation:


 




I give myself an E – for effort.

Would it have helped if I’d used a set of encyclopedias?  I doubt it.

You are too kind – really!

Well I like your tree better. It's more interesting - with different colors and shapes. Looks like just a bunch of copies of the same book in that first photo.

Lol pfffftttt to the etsy. I think it looks awesome FOR EVEN TRYING (I, personally, would not have even lifted a finger) so you get an A, at least in my book (pun intended) for awesome!!

Cheri @ Blog This Mom!® said...

I think it stacks up against the competition just fine. :-D

DWei said...

Wrap some lights around it and BAM. Looks instantly more authentic and festive.

Beth said...

nursemyra:
Such diplomacy…

oreneta:
…and so simple to make!

robyn:
yeah…and I bet whoever made the first one had help…I did mine all by myself… ;)

LW:
I am loving this delayed winter…

Punk Chopsticks:
An A? I like your book…

VE said...

You top is much more awesome than that other one. Wait...did that come out right?

DWei said...

I do have an Etsy account but all I do is buy stuff. I'm not nearly creative enough to make anything worth selling. :P

Beth said...

Lola:
Excellent taste – and discretion.

JayaJ:
With the number of books around here, I could have MANY!

LW:
Shovels are at the ready…

VE:
Sounds just fine to me. ;)

DWei:
…except for your creative advice…

At last, recognition from Santa for my efforts! ;)

That is totally cute Beth. You may have inspired me to make a similar Christmas book tree!

Beth said...

Adam:
Thank you - and thanks for the visit.

Make one for Jack, too - I think you have enough books!
