Friday Fun

To get this cute shot of my nephew and grand-niece:

I first had to get this shot:

Thanks to my sister-in-law who suggested that tactic. :-)

Make-it Monday

My brain is churning wildly as I make plans for all this wonderful acid-free mat board I have been given! I'm sharing some....... but for now at least I've organized it into piles by size. Such fun.

Here's a little onesie that started out as a class project but didn't quite work out for the lady who started it. I fixed it up as best I could! Kind of cute.

Looking forward to going to Common Threads today and working with the little girls.

Make-it Monday

Lots of birthdays in January. Here are a few of the cards I made this week. Any favorites? I need some constructive criticism...........

Why squirrels are always running around....

...they eat energy bars. And quite neatly, too. Found this little guy outside of St. Tom's.

Make-it Monday

Here are a few ATCs I just made --and an inchy (next to a quarter to show how small it is!)
And one happy young man I sewed with last week who is quite proud of the four eye pillows he made.

On the twelfth day of Christmas....

.... Twelve figures in this little Nativity set. I have a few Nativity sets but this one is definitely my cutest. I found this set in Creede, Colorado several years ago.
Here's the whole set:

Here's the holy family, a cow and the donkey:

The donkey is missing an ear because he took a trip with a little neighbor girl several years ago and was injured during the adventure! :-)

Here are the wisemen:

And the angel, shepherd and a couple sheep.

And to show how tiny this set is, here is baby Jesus:

On the eleventh day of Christmas.....

... eleven ornaments made by my brother-in-law and his wife. Steve is a woodworker and has made several little wooden ornaments over the years and Nan does a lot of paper-cutting. AND Nan sent me an ATC with a paper-cut skater on it. She's joining our ATC circle. Yay!!

On the tenth day of Christmas....

....ten horsey ornaments. I say "horsey" and not "horse" because one is actually a rocking reindeer, and that white one on the right.... made of clothespins...... that one used to be a unicorn, but has lost his little gold pipe cleaner horn. We began collecting these when one of our daughters was born. Somehow, rocking horses seemed so Christmas-y! We have all different kinds. Porcelain, wood, glass, cross-stitched. I love them all.

On the ninth day of Christmas....

... this wonderful set of DVDs of the Richard Rohr, OFM and Russ Hudson presentation on the Enneagram. The term "enneagram" derives from two Greek words, ennea (nine) and grammos (something written or drawn).We will be using this in our Faith-Sharing group starting next week. I'm really looking forward to this.

On the eighth day of Christmas....

...eight photos from our annual New Year's morning hike at Walden Ponds Wildlife Habitat.
It was a sunny, cold morning. 15 degrees when we started the hike. Lots of Canada geese honking overhead. One little bunny. And so much natural beauty. We ended our hike at The Buff for lattes to warm us up and some great bacon and eggs!

A great way to start the new year....
