Here it is! Jared and I have been working on it for weeks. I made the people and furniture and collected little critters. Jared did everything that required power tools. We're so pleased with how it turned out. The kids have been playing with it all morning. What do you think?
I wasn't set on a handmade holiday just because we don't have money. Or because I have something against buying toys.
It's just that you just can't buy something like this at Walmart. It's infused with love and thoughtful care. From the silk floor to the acorn caps to the miniature Christmas tree, everything is made from natural materials and is so wonderful to touch. There's nothing else quite like it in the world. You can easily envision little elves with their miniature tools building it.
To my children, with love.
