Jason passed this on to me, and I was floored...absolutely blown away by Price's kindness and thoughtfulness. So I prayed about it, and I felt like God prompted me to make Price a nativity. I'd been wanting to experiment with a simpler version of a felted nativity, something that didn't require pipe-cleaner forms or faces, and with that old Christmas clock was just ticking away with so much already on my to-do list, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to try out something simple. And here is the result:
|I think my favorite part of this set is how I still got Mary to kneel. Looking back at it now, I have no idea how I did it. I also like how she's a little chubby, 'cause come on, folks. She just had a baby.|
I think this is the first nativity that I actually enjoyed making start to finish. There wasn't even much tweaking involved. So if I ever decide to sell felted nativities, they will most likely be of this simplified variety. (I can't imagine the nightmare of mass-producing the other kind.) But this first little set was made especially for a very dear friend. Merry Christmas, Price!
