A tree long-thought to be wiped from the face of the planet earth is being silently cultivated back to presence by one-Missouri naturalist. A report by National Geographic details the attempts by Steve Bost, who’s leading efforts to painstakingly pollinate the Ozark chinquapin tree – a once prolific kind of chestnut tree – by hand.
Bost’s efforts, despite the prognostications of many naturalists, ended up being productive. Unlike other attempts to save American chestnut trees and shrubs, which entail cross-breeding the specimens with blight-resistant Chinese chestnuts, Bost is objective to keep the chinquapin’s genetic makeup pure. To achieve this individuality, the Missouri naturalist has gone through an activity both unprecedented and arduous. Steve Bost (pictured above) set out on a mission to find surviving Chinquapins about twenty years ago. The Ozark chestnut is protected in burs and blooms in late May to early June after the risk of frost had exceeded. National Geographic reviews that Bost collects the pollen from a wholesome tree, dries it, places it in a jar, and then drives it as as 20 hours to hand-pollinate another tree much.
For some recipients it’s easy to make them a lovely “easterie” card with pastel colors and beautiful embellishments, luxurious stamps. But for others, say, the men in your daily life, making an Easter card can be a bit challenging. That’s why I fell in love with this little bunny! Not so pretty that he works limited to kiddo cards, however, not so um, unique looking that he wouldn’t work for cards for children.
My 4 season old loves him too! Isn’t he just too cute! But in a not too cute way! When making this card I wanted some not too feminine paper so I printed off some of the new paper released from My Time Made Easy called Well Woven. It will come in a whole slew of colors! Here is printed Thistlestock. And the best thing about using Digi paper with Digi stamps is I was able to drag my sentiment right on top of the patterned paper before printing layer!
Remember that super adorable Bouncing Baby Buggy template i used for a child boy task a couple of days back? Just click here to view it! Well, where do you think that Easter was made by me basket from? Yep, the template is one in the same (and I’ve another different way to use it that I’ll give out tomorrow!) This template is so flexible! You should see how Lauren turned it into a boat and a wheelbarrow! So the base is the same as the bottom in the buggy. I just didn’t add the top or the wheels and instead I added a remove of cardstock to be always a basket handle.
Ok, don’t call me a genius, turning this cutie buggy into a container is one of the motives of the template! But I still needed you to view it done! Ok, thanks for hanging within! It really is known by me was an extended post! Now it’s time that you can hop along to Paper Makeup Artist, Randee! Don’t forget our party is TONIGHT at 8pm CST in the Paper Makeup Forum! We’d LOOOOVE for you to sign up for us!
Her signature tone made red a favorite choice, and as a result, the use of carmine became more wide-spread. Ingredients were blended in either brass or wooden bowls (depending on class levels) and once the color had been created maybe it’s applied straight onto the lip area. This is done using damp wooden sticks that acted as an applicator clean. There were many aesthetic reasons, the Egyptians thought we would accentuate the mouth area. Not merely did the vibrant colors draw attention to this area but software had ties to cultural position.

According to beauty historian Rachel Weingarten in a Bustle article on lipstick, users of royalty and top of the class wore lip paints to showcase their position in society. It became a symbol of style and importance, than simply a beauty item rather. Though poorer women and men also wore handmade lipsticks, it was thought to be something for the top of the class mainly.
This is exactly why well-off women were often buried with several pots of lip color. Much like paints for the lip area, red ocher was popular to add color to the cheeks. The process of fabricating this blush started with mining naturally tinted clay (hydrated iron oxide) from the ground before it was washed to separate the sand from the other. It had been then remaining to dry in the sun to help make the natural color shows up more radiant.
