Odd Idea?

Well, here I am babysitting the dog after his surgery and messing around looking for something to do so out came some of the things I have stashed away. I have vague ideas of decreasing the amount of "stuff" in the house.  This one is not crazy quilting, and not even stitching, so may not be interesting.  It is more in the glue gun and Styrofoam ball realm of crafting...

I am going through my daughter's long abandoned stamp collection and deciding what to do with it.  If you have read my blog for awhile you may remember that I take part in a nativity scene display every year at one of the local churches.  They have hundreds of creches on display and I always go because it officially puts me in the Christmas spirit at about the right time in November.  I get a kick out of having my own creches in the display and I try to add something new every year.  All of this group of stamps are Christmas themed and feature nativities so I thought I would do something with them.

Easy-peasy!  I arranged them in a  frame which I picked up for a couple bucks at the thrift store and again have hit two birds with one stone.  I have my addition for next year's nativity display in town and I managed to use a few of the stamps from my daughter's old collection.
