On the twelfth day of Christmas…an angel

angelThis is not a recent craft I made it in 1992 at the ripe old age of 15 for my Nana for Christmas.  She loved Christmas and she loved angels.  At the time I was pretty big into cross stitch.  My intention when I made this for her was to add to her Christmas decorations, her intention was to put it in her living room year round.  When she became an angel this picture was given back to me.  I hang it up every year for Christmas along with the Christmas ball she made for me and the very old but functional carousel ornamotion decoration that has her hand writing on the box.  I remember all of the Christmases we had together and I have some amazing memories of a great woman.  I won’t forget the year she fell in the bushes after a few glasses of wine, or the year she was practicing giving the finger which I caught on film and used as my Christmas card, or the Pistachio torte.  I’m sure she would be terrified to think I remember some of her funnier moments but I remember the good as well.  Have an awesome Christmas and make some great memories with friends and family.  Cherish every moment.
