Looks like snow for Christmas! I know my grandson will love it when he visits. I finished my doll but have not found a name for her yet. I used an antique doll head and antiqued it further. Her body is made from cloth and her legs are wooden dowels inside the cloth and attached to the wooden base I made for her. The clay I bought this time did not work as well so instead of my own creation for her face I used the antique head. Her pinafore and hat are antiques. She was not pleased with the dress I made for her so I made another one. Dolls can be tempermental it seems. I am working every day on the new house to prepare it for our move. There is a lot of work to do there and Blake has been helping me since he is on vacation. How did I get so lucky to have such a sweet loving son? He never stops until the job is done! I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I hope this time of year is a reminder of all our blessings we each have. This is a giving time of year and we should extend our loving giving hearts to every day of the year. God blesses us with many gifts and Jesus the greatest gift, is the reason we celebrate this Christmas season. With all the sadness in the world around us it is sometimes difficult to find happiness. Our hearts break for the 26 people who were killed this past week. What a sad and difficult time for the families of those little children and educators who died. I pray for the families. Sometimes our difficulties seem endless in our own lives but there are always others who suffer more. Have a great week and celebrate Christ's birth every day.
