Crafty Thursday.....

 "Mary, Mary, hush, 
see the Child.  
Joseph, Joseph, look 
see how mild! 
This is Jesus;
this is our King. 
This is our Savior,
His praises we sing. " 

If you know me personally.....
then you might know that I adore nativities!
I have quite a collection.
My mother-in-law brought me back a small brass set when she visited Mexico. Our kiddos gifted me with a gorgeous hand carved set from Uganda.

Out of curiosity, I thought I would find some nativity ornaments to make,
so here are a few with the links to the instructions,
or where they can be bought.

A sweet lady I know tagged me on her blog to show me this one.
I think she knows me pretty well....;-)

with the money going to the Lottie Moon offering!

And, here's one to go outdoors!!
Would you believe these are made from concrete landscape pavers?
The lady gives the instructions on her site.....

So that should get some of us started who want to make some of these in the next couple of weeks......
or, if you're like me.....
there's always next year!!!

HOPE y'all have a Terrific Thursday!!!
