When the Lord takes over!

Good morning! It's a wonderful crisp day.....but unfortunately we are in for a hot Christmas. I mean the kind were the girls are wondering if they can go swimming. Ugh... Oh well, I keep trying to remind myself it doesn't matter what the weather is like. What are we celebrating? The weather...I think not!

I started a Christmas present for the Little Chef a couple of weeks back and didn't like were it was going. The fabrics were all wrong for what I was making. I was in a conundrum...what to do? I wanted this project to be whimsical and fun. But I had no moola for it. I prayed as I was walking through my daily activities. Guess What? The Lord directed me to this old duvet cover I had! Yippee! I just love it when He takes my best offering and goes way beyond whatever I could have come up with!


A fun Puppet Theater!



I can't wait to try it. I hope she'll let me play and not just watch.


Here are some of the puppets the 2 oldest chicks and I came up with.


Dog, Horse and Shark


These Polynesian Dancers better watch out for that Shark!

A Gingerbread Family....we've made waaayyy

to much gingerbread this year!

So I'm pleased as punch how this turned out! Thank you Father for your wonderful ideas and guidance. I found a "how to" online and changed it a bit to fit my needs. It's all about the fabric! The puppets are funny. I bought the bodies from OT and we decorated them. I'm not sure why we have what we have. I would never have thought of some of them, but they sure are cute. The total project came in under $20. It took me about 3 hours to make the theater. I hope this gives someone some inspiration for birthdays or next Christmas!

Merry, Merry Day!
