Playing catch up…a Mobile and Nativity Synopsis

The dust is beginning to settle after a busy holiday season. And after a nice little getaway to warmer regions, I am ready to plunge back into things.

First of all, a pictorial update of the last few months is in order!

While I braced myself for a good amount of Nativity making over the holidays, I found myself amid a collage of custom mobile orders that kept things interesting and my fingers extra busy…The following posts will picture orders ranging from Airedales, Dalmatians, sheep dogs and English Labs to skunks, bears and rabbits shipped as near as Oregon and Washington and as far as Hawaii, Germany and Australia.

While custom orders generally lend themselves to individual animals and mobiles, I did have the pleasure of making this custom Nativity based on the Friendly Beasts Christmas Carol.

Friendly Beasts Carol:

Jesus our brother kind and good
Was humbly born in a stable of wood
And the friendly beasts around him stood
Jesus our brother kind and good

“I” said the donkey shaggy and brown
I carried his mother up hill and down
I carried him safely to Bethlehem town
“I” said the donkey shaggy and brown

And “I” said the cow all white and red
I gave him my manger for a bed
I gave him my hay for to pillow his head
“I” said the cow all white and red

“I” said the sheep with a curly horn
I have him my wool for his blanket warm
And he wore my coat on that Christmas morn
“I” said the sheep with a curly horn

“I” said the dove from the rafters high
Cooed him to sleep that he should not cry
We cooed him to sleep my love and I
“I” said the dove from the rafters high

And “I” said the camel all yellow and black
Over the desert upon my back
I brought him a gift in the wise men’s pack
“I” said the camel all yellow and black

Thus every beast remembering it well
In the stable dark was so proud to tell
Of the gifts that they gave Emmanuel
The gifts that they gave Emmanuel
