It is truly wonderful the friends we've made from blogging... and sad that so many of us have given it up... but great that the friendships outlast the online presence. Rose is a true artist! Those faces are beautiful and then she makes the hair and clothing... awesome! To you and Rose and your families, have a wonderful Christmas!
