>Gift from "Miss Bee Haven" at MJF


Button Mosaic, originally uploaded by sunshine’s creations.

These are all gifts from ” Miss Bee Haven ” on the MJF forum; such a wide variety of color materials and styles! There are mother of pearl both buttons and buckles ,big and little. Lots of really cool vintage-patterned buttons; and I love the wild colors. I have yet to sit down and go through all of them, but I pulled out the first few that caught my eye and set them out so they could be seen better in the photos here. Such fun I am going to have with this.

I got these on the 18th I am just a little slow posting, with the holiday and all.

>The Journey: The angel


The Angel:
The angel was the first to announce the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
A host of heavenly angels were singing praises unto the newborn King. “Hark the herald angel sing, glory to the newborn King. Peace on earth, and mercy mild; God and sinners reconciled. Joyful all ye nations rise; Join the Triumph of the skies with angelic host proclaim, Christ is born in the Bethlehem. Hark the herald angel, sing glory to the newborn King.” Joy to the world, the Lord has come. Let earth receive her King. Let every heart prepare Him room, and heaven and nature sing, and heaven and nature sing.”
” Silent night, holy night, all is calm, all is bright. Holy Infant so tender and mild, sleep in heavenly peace. Sleep in heavenly peace.”

My children made this Creche last year; we have three of them on our tree. I think it is just precious, even if baby Jesus is made out of a Popsicle stick. Don’t forget in all the rushing around to spend time with your children. They are the closest you can come to being with angles without being in heaven.

Here is our Angel from last year.
