First I want to mention that my prayers are going out to those affected by the tragedy at the Indiana State Fair last evening. DH and I, along with DS and DDIL, were leaving the fairgrounds right at the time the stage collapsed. We knew something had happened because of the sirens and personnel running back in the direction we had just came from. Seeing the coverage on television this morning breaks my heart. Prayers are needed for those families who have lost their loved ones.
On a somewhat less important topic, I had a whole morning yesterday to play in the classroom. I decided to give a try at designing a Christmas Village, roughly based on the Village of Cuteness I made at Convention. DH had already cut out the wood pieces for me and I got to use some of the fun new products which are coming September 1st. I think it came out pretty well!
You can see the felt stitched accents which are in the new Holiday mini, and do you see the silver glimmer paper on the white house? OMGosh! This stuff is gorgeous! And the mini jingle bells on the door? Amazing stuff!
