Oh my gosh, guys, the end of the Tree Huggin’ photo contest is only six sleeps away! Get snapping!
Says towhee: “i wrapped myself around this 100 year old oak tree for five months while i worked on the applique + embroidery (details from the green belt are seen on the insets). this piece is dedicated to the work of the green belt movement in kenya and a tribute to its nobel peace prize founder.” It looks like a near-unbelievable effort. I wish I’d been down in Seattle while it was up!
Check out towhee’s shop for beautiful paper-work like this card set, which is packaged and mailed in recycled materials:

Another new photo contest entrant is glowtiaras, who, apparently, is trying to break my heart with homesickness in this shot:
Says Julie: “A photo of myself hugging a tree this past August in Giribaldi Provincial Park, British Columbia (just south of Whistler). Who knew that it would perfectly fit with this contest… over a month later! What an awesome place…?”
Oh, British Columbia! Pardon me while I go listen to some Bryan Adams and dream of rain!
OK, the moment has passed.
These great big old-growth trees are typical of the pacific northwest rainforest. For more information on beautiful Garibalidi Provincial Park, check out their website!
Julie’s etsy shop, glowtiaras, is a pretty far cry from her hiking-boot-wearin’ self portrait:
Fairly stunning stuff!
Stay tuned during the week for more information on our contest entrants!
