A Christmas Carol Isn't Just For Christmas

I know some people think the story of A Christmas Carol is a holiday themed story, and yes, I have to agree it is, in one sense- but in another sense, not so much.

You see, the other day I was pondering on what I wanted to work on next and it hit me- the main characters from the Charles Dickens tale of A Christmas Carol. Yes, it was May, and yes, it is 90 plus degress out, but I happen to love the version with Patrick Stewart in it, he made the best acting Scrooge I have ever watched! Anyway, as I enjoyed the movie, I found myself getting out my supplies and work away I did.

Christmas or not, the message of the novel and the movie has a strong year round lesson about life and how it should be approached- and I felt that though most think it as a Christmas themed tale, I happen to believe it is more of a life themed tale.

OH! I totally relate! This is my favorite story of all time. I also planned on making these characters when time allows (from needle felting and paper clay).

I also want to do Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman. Actually, I've already done the Horseman, now it's Ichabod's turn. Have you tried them yet?! So much fun!!!

Stop on over and visit sometime if you'd like to see what I mean when I say I needle felt and use paperclay.
