Nativity View

a glimpse

touchable, reachable, real enough to imagine

The Angeljourneying

Angel visiting Joseph

Angel visiting Mary


"and there were shepherds...."

The Arrival

God with Us

The Story

The Story

I presented the boys with this gift this afternoon. It took over a month of evenings to craft, and it’s far from perfect, but I can see hours and years of Story and play already emerging. I’m pleased.
(And, given the reality that it lives in a house of boys, I’ve ordered a photo book of it so that when the figures reach their inevitable demise, we can still use them in coming seasons.)

    Hm, when i load multiple photos, the captions and pictures get a little mixed up. It should still make sense, for the most part 🙂

      Aw, thanks everyone! I like them as well and am pleased with how they turned out. I need to tweak a few things, but have thought about making several sets over this next year and selling them next season, but those plans (for me) generally don’t follow through. We’ll see 🙂

      Jeremiah especially likes the king (who he is convinced is a ‘bad guy’) and the angel (who he makes fly around over everyone).
