Joyful, all ye nations rise,
join the triumph of the skies;

Light and life to all he brings,
risen with healing in his wings.

These are a Few of my Favorite Things (Ornaments)

With photocopies of family photos (some antiques!), I just created a family Christmas tree.  I added watercolors to tint to some of the black and white images.  Other photos were rolled and inserted into clear ornaments.  Take a peak!

Be filled with wonder.

Be touched by peace.

They’re shown a holy light.
