Nativities

I found a bowl full of nativity character beads at one of my favorite bead places in town. I spent a week or so deciding what to do with them before I came across hand-carved wooden trays that were a great stage for the scene. I added rectangles of used burgundy huipiles to add some more color, and gold glitter glue to accent the carvings on the front I've made two of these so far, and in addition to the ones I put in my Etsy shop, I'm going to give some as gifts (and keep one for myself! Heehee).
