So I had this idea a while back to paint a manger scene for my wall for Christmas.  I soon discovered, however, that my art skills do not extend to Wise Men or Camels ... or, for that matter, donkeys, shepherds, Mary or Joseph.  Regardless, I kept sketching and finally came up with something that I liked.  My conclusion:  I can do Baby Jesus in a manger and sheep (and by sheep, I mean clouds with legs.)  Yay!

So this is the final product ... I'm really quite pleased with it, actually!

I love the one you made for me.  It's beautiful.  I will use it every year.  You do great work.  You should sell them.

Oh, thank you so much, MsMia!  I'm glad you liked the one I made you.  I think the wooden letters worked out well (other than the falling off!)  It took me 5 tries to get the lettering on mine to something I wouldn't mind hanging up! (Perhaps stencils next time ...)
