It's all about the giving: Nativity Peg People

Good things come in small packages.
I think they are so tiny and adorable.
Just look at sweet baby Jesus.
The kids love them and that makes me one happy mama.
I hope our friends will love them as much as we do.



I needed to make at least 16 gifts this year, and this was one of the most inexpensive gifts I have ever made. 
I got my little peg people from caseyswood.com.
 I think it was about $32. I already had the paint. 
That is $2 a family, thank you very much!
The downside was all of the time it took to paint them. 
There is a reason there are no wise men and no angel. 
I can see why set like this will sell for about $80 on Esty.
I really loved painting these little guys and I can't wait to deliver them to our sweet friends.
It really is better to give than receive!

  3. These are so adorable. I can't get over how cute they are. I loved 'Little People' growing up and these remind me just of them. I would love it if you could link these up to our linky party going on right now.

  4. These are soooo cute! What a great idea. My mom has a nativity collection, but I'm quite sure she doesn't have any like these!
