walnut baby jesus christmas ornament
Several years ago, before Juliet was born, I went to a christmas ornament exchange party. One of my coworkers made one of these walnut shell baby Jesus ornaments. I remember thinking it was the cutest thing I had ever seen.

Last Christmas, I tried to track the ornament down (one of my friends got it). She looked through her boxes, but never found it. I was hoping she would email me a photo of it so I could recreate it.

I couldn't remember anything more than the shell part.

I did a search on the internet, but came up with nothing!

Fast forward to this year and I have seen these ornaments pop up on several different blogs. So, following this tutorial, Juliet and I made one together--finally.

I also dug up this vintage book that was Ben's as a child. The illustrations are really beautiful. It's from a series called Arch Books. Baby Born in a Stable .

So, that's it. I'm done with Christmas crafts for you.

Get ready for Valentines day. ;)
