Homespun Nativity

One of the ways we try and remember our Savior during the busy Holiday season is by displaying Nativities in our home. We've collected several over the years and the kids have their Little People Nativity that they get to play with during the Christmas season. So when I saw an adorable handmade primitive style Nativity in The Country Sampler Magazine last year, I clipped the picture and filed it away for future inspiration. So when I came across it again this past weekend, I thought I'd use Josh's nap time to make one. I hope to do a couple sheep too, but they will have to wait for another day. This is how it turned out...

I like yours better than the sample idea! They turned out so great! Where do you find the time? Do you have a couple extra hours laying around that you might want to give to me? :0)
