Mary and Baby Jesus
It's Christmas season! Wow, can this time of year get busy.
I've been crafting up a storm and haven't posted much in the last couple of days, but I should have some things to share soon.
Until then, I thought I'd share this Mary and Baby Jesus picture from the Graphics Fairy, found here.
I love the Nativity and have collected some stunning sets over the years. They are really the only think I like to collect, but I'm pretty particular about how they look. It just doesn't feel right when the figures look European, and Mary and the Christ child have blond hair. I must have shared my disdain with my children, because when they made this nativity for me a few years ago, they made sure to point out that everyone was painted Biblically accurate per their understanding. That made me sooo happy!
So, while I liked the image above - I decided Mary and Baby Jesus needed to look a little less fair. Here is my remake of the above image:
Now, to make some cards or ornaments.......
I'll update this post when I do.
Thanks for stopping by the tub,
