3 Muses! tis the season!

I love holidays and Christmas is 1 of my favorites.
I have 2 loves, bears and snowmen!!!
Back in the holiday boutique days I used to make scenes using these characters.
This one was called
On the Park Bench
Frosty and bears on park bench, small bear adding snow to snowman from his bucket, birds in park and young bear with sling shot in back pocket(for launching snowballs!) small brown bear helping little white bear so he can give frosty the snowballs. It was fun to play and I made probably 30 different scenes. I kept only 2, my bear nativity and my Nativity bear wreath.

cachallenge/ embossing!

Images from

A little Mary miracle!

I never realized until today that the day of my adoption was on the celebration of
Our Lady Of Guadalupe!
Since participating in The Virgin a Day project that began December 1st and ending yesterday December 12th I became familiar with the history of Our Lady of Guadalupe and now have a double reason to rejoice on this day.
My adoption was final!!!
