And I just can't resist sharing some of the lovely gifts I was given this Christmas:
|A Christmas tree painted by Zoe|
|A lovely box made by Mark...|
|...which opens into a portable watercolor palette! (Just add paint...)|
|A wild rose painted (in oils) by Lucy. Isn't that incredible?!|
And to round things off, here are some of the gifts I made for them in return:
|A tiny stuffed mouse for Lucy.|
I may not be helping my case in the mouse wars...but I earned a giant hug and smile.
|Currently, Master Mouse is joining Mary and Joseph in adoration. |
They, in turn, seem unfazed by the sudden appearance of a hooded Rodent Of Unusual Size.
|Genevieve's Tiny Turtle|
|Zoe's little clownfish|
|And a wee olive ornament for Mark, hiding amidst the fir branches.|
Yes, a little odd, but we share a passion for green olives. :)
