gift of family

A great Christmas was enjoyed by the family, lots of gifts were exchanged - some hand crafted, some heartfelt, some just for fun, but of course the best gift of all is just being all together once again.

Cut and pieced, handcrafted patchwork from our own master woodworker, thanks Buddy! More photos here.

A new critter for our wildlife collection, Romeo Raccoon.

More new critters to add to our collection - Koala, roo and joey, and the infamous dingo who stole the baby - from our special Australian visitor, thanks John!

New sarcastic car tags for some of us, thanks kids!

A new mug for my morning coffee with attitude, look out!

Beautiful woodworking. I'd love to have that sort of talent. By the way, your animals look like they could move right into a Nut Family story at Beth's!

The minute I saw those coasters I lusted after them. They are too beautiful to use!

Buddy is a true craftsman...they're beautiful!

Sounds like you had a terrific Christmas. I also think the best gift of all is having the family all gather together.

Love & Hugs
