I made this magnetic nativity with 25 pieces for the girls to use during the month of December. I used an Usborne cardboard nativity for the figures. Photocopied the stable and decoupaged it a huge round tray that I had painted. I made the magnetic backings different heights so that the figures could be layered, giving it a three-dimensional look. I rather like it.
This gift came along with a personally made thank you card from the lovely and talented Julie at Is There a Shadow? How lucky can I be? Isn't the little book gorgeous!!!
A gazillion years ago Dawn from (4:53 a.m.) sent me this lovely thank you card. It hangs on this lamp in the corner of the dining area.

This past Sunday morning.
Last summer's raspberries.
I liked the lines of this shot.
After weeks of frigid weather (lows sub-zero fahrenheit and highs in the teens fahrenheit) today's forty degree weather was delightful so we went for a walk. The snowsuits were worn to keep the girls dry more than to keep them warm.
No matter what I try, I cannot convince the girls, especially Stinkerbell that eating snow is gross. I shudder.
