Painted Rocking Horse

After many months of procrastination, the pink and brown zebra striped polka-dotted rocking horse I started for my niece, Destiny, is finished. Love it!

Thought Jars

In the spirit of trying to keep things simple this Christmas, I made little thought jars for my sisters and Mom. I took text from the talk "Unleashing the Dormant Spirit" by F. Enzio Busche and printed it on the white side of different decorative papers in a fairly large font. Then I cut the pieces up, folded them accordion style and piled them up in a jar. I tied on a matching decorative bow and placed them in a gift bag with a bag of Hershey's Kisses and a label that said "Warm thoughts and kisses this Merry Christmas!"
