Just a short post... :)

 
Thanks, Pom Pom, for this little book. I'm finally getting a chance to read it. I think I'll finish it today. It's always nice to be encouraged to use our creative urges for the glory of God.
See the plastic folder under the book? It contains a 14 page history of my life in a nutshell. I wrote it for my younger brother. I'm still adding things to it. We've been out of contact for so many years, I thought it was a good way to get caught up. We visit on the phone, but have problems understanding each other because of static (and old ears?). I wanted to cover a lot of information in a form he can keep, and then we can chat about more recent events on the phone. I'll be sending him updates via snail mail. 

 
Audrey and Hazel made me these sweet little salt dough impressions of their hands for Christmas. Unfortunately, they have dried out so much that they're splitting down the middle. So, I decided to Mod Podge them like crazy and glue them to a cardboard back. I'll trim them after the glue dries.
 I think I've overdone my computer time, as usual, and I'm feeling drowsy. So, I'll make this short and get onto other things.
Have you ever noticed that gnomes never seem to be bothered by the cold? And someone always seems to supply them with a warm bowl of porridge! They must be appreciated for all the good things they do. :)

  1. Snail mail is a very earthy, cozy way to keep in touch, I think. Your handprint ornaments are such treasures. My daughter gave us ball ornaments with their two children's hand prints on them. The fingers were made into snowmen. Very cute.

  4. Cute gnome peering out of a hayloft (?). He'll stay cozy up there but I doubt he'll be able to have a fire to warm his supper.
