Yesterday we had a Christmas Luncheon at The Center in honor of Joan Walsh Anglund. Lunch was yummy and Lois gave a lovely slide show and talk about this wonderful artist and author. Her sweet drawings of children reflect their innocence.
I helped with the crafts and we made this little girl with the familiar face of Joan Walsh Anglund's drawings...
added a pine cone for her body and there she is, ready for Christmas. Some of the ladies added pipe cleaner arms and a little paper book so that she could go caroling.
Here you can see one of her famous children.
We made cranberry hearts, gift tags, a little seed bag for the birds, a cornucopia, the little pine cone girl, and cut paper dolls. It was a "feel good" day.
For the birds: "Spread this birdseed on your doorstep on New Year's morning for a year of good luck...for you and the birds!"
