This week I am sharing something that I have shown you before but it truly is a special treasure and especially this time of year .
I know I have this in my header at this time and I also know that many of you know the story behind this little wall hanging but I have lots of new followers which I am very thankful for so I'd like to share the history behind this project and why it is a treasure to me. Eight years ago my beautiful granddaughter drew this Santa with chalk on a piece of construction paper at school , I thought the drawing was incredible for an eight year old and I wanted to somehow keep this so what better way than with fabric so I traced off each and every line she had drawn and the beard is made up of several pieces of fabric to show her flowing lines in the beard , the eyes are exactly as she had drawn them and don't you love the shape of his mouth . She also had the snowflakes along the side and this is the size of the paper she used so I didn't alter it in any way . I should have added here that last year for Christmas I made this same wall hanging and gave it to Alyssa as a gift so we now both can hang her incredible work . I think Alyssa is a very gifted young lady and although she doesn't do much in the way of drawing today she is still gifted in music and maybe someday will come back to drawing . Recently she had a birthday so Happy Birthday Alyssa !
Her sister Caitlin also had a birthday recently , Happy Birthday Caitlin , sure wish we could have been there for both birthdays , hope you had some cake for me :-) Love you both:-)
This is Caitlin with our granddaughter Elise , isn't this picture precious . I have five beautiful granddaughters who are all treasures to me and I have two handsome grandsons who of course are treasures as well . Family is so important and I miss them . I have to say that being a grandmother is the most precious gift anyone can receive , they bring so much joy and love into your life , they are true treasures . Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful day .
