Snow globes are so magical -
especially with digital macro and some picnik additions...
This gift was presented to me Friday
by a Third grader
with a huge grin and an insistent "please open it now".
Gotta love that enthusiasm...
Just look at this magical world I unwrapped -
a towering magical Bethlehem
with poor Mary and Joseph
traveling in circles looking for a place for our savior to be born.
(don't you just feel like you are going in circles somedays?)
At least they get to be serenaded by "Oh Little Town of Bethlehem"
while they trudge through the snow as
...there was no room for them in the inn.
And this same young man named Zach
then showed me this card he created in art.
Wow he is quite the artist which I already knew.
Just look at the graphic quality of the houses
silhouetted against the night sky.
And Santa's sleigh just glides across the moon
with Rudolph's nose illuminating the evening.
Well being one to promote all art in youth
I asked him if I could display it on my blog
and I told him I would send all your comments to him.
So I would love it if you would leave a word of encouragement
for this fine young man.
Merry Christmas from Zach and me!
