CHIC EASTER CHICKS

THESE LITTLE CHICKS ARE SO EASY TO MAKE. I HAD SOME VERY OLD COTTON BATTING THAT I FORMED INTO A BALL BY PUTTING A FLUFF OF IT IN THE PALM OF MY HAND AND THEN SQUEEZED SOME WHITE GLUE INTO THE MIDDLE OF IT. I WORKED THE GLUE INTO THE COTTON BY ROLLING IT IN MY PALMS UNTIL THE BALL HELD IT SHAPE. I DID THE SAME THING, ONLY SMALLER FOR THE HEAD BUT PINCHED A LIITLE PART TO FORM THE BEAK. AFTER GLUING THE HEAD TO THE BODY, I MADE SOME LITTLE THIGHS USING THE SAME METHOD. AFTER THE SHAPE DRIED, I THEN PAINTED IT WITH ACRYLIC PAINTS. WHEN THE PAINT WAS DRY, I FORMED SOME FEET OUT OF COVERED WIRE, PAINTED THEM AN ORANGE COLOR AND INSERTED THEM INTO THE THIGHS. BY MOVING THE WIRE FEET A LITTLE, THEY CAN STAND. THEY HAVE A VINTAGE LOOK AND I THINK THEY ARE SWEET. WITH SOME OF THE CHICKS, I GLUED THEM ATOP SOME MACHE BOXES THAT I DECORATED WITH VINTAGE TRIMS, RIBBONS, PAPERS, FLOWERS, AND FEATHERS.

In context of the statement spoken, I would imagine the woman was implying to your gorgeous granddaughter possessing wisdom when she gazed upon her deep intense penetrating eyes, a soul with the clarity of insightfulness of in-depth understanding of life. An “Old Soul” as they say, check this out {http://flickr.com/photos/windwardskies/352361957/}
and it may enlighten you. After taking another look at the picture of Alice I’m sure that it was this what the woman had meant. Hope this helps and strange you asked me but flattered all the same. Have a great weekend.
Hugs Annabelle
