I made this version of our family Advent banner for my daughter's new family. Their home is small so I made the new one a bit more compact than ours. I think I like the new angels and the fleece sheep better than ours. :-)
This is the original one made by my mom and me twenty plus years ago. The pattern came from a women's magazine.
Here are the stockings for my son-in-law and new granddaughters. They are very similar to the ones I made for our family, except that older ones are green.
It feels good to create something, even if it isn't mini. I hope to get back to the French Country house soon. I need some miniature inspiration.
Wishing you a blessing filled day, wherever you are!
I've been happily married for 33 years to my high school sweetheart and we have three great kids. All are young adults. I'm currently working part time as an instructional assistant at the local elementary school. My mini life is especially important to me because it takes me away (better than a bubble bath!) from the stresses of real life. I've been involved with mini-ing since the late 1980s with a break for about 10 years while my children were young.
My faith and my family are very important to me. I am so thankful that God blessed me with the gift of creativity!
