Well a little grey kitten was our epiphany today. We have Susan Jeffers’ Nutcracker and Stopping by Woods, so when I saw a copy of Silent Night illustrated by her at my favorite tag sale, I had to pick it up. Aside from showing a nursing newborn (yay!), Jeffers has added a wonderfully cute kitten to the nativity story. If you are looking at the book on amazon, you can see the kitten in Mary’s arm on the cover of the paperback edition. Ivie and I had a great time finding the kitten in each of the nativity scenes. So of course, we had to add a little kitten to our nativity that you can see in the Epiphany photos I took today.
This entire journey has been a process in learning . . . making a large quantity of dolls, blogging about it, keeping a photo chronology. I added one more learning opportunity for myself today by joining vimeo and making a little movie showing our journey with the dolls. Hope you enjoy!
