Ho! Ho! Ho! The Christmas ATC elf continues to play. These two interesting little ATC’s are for my two oldest grandsons. They are as different as their ATC’s. My oldest grandson is a farmer, has a lovely wife and three little daughters (his little spark plugs). His wife is very good at crafts and cooking and making a great home. Their ATC was inspired by the Raggedy Ann doll and was brought to completion when I found the faded flag. The two together give me a strong feeling of nostalgia and Americana. I loved this one.
My younger grandson is in the Army, has been stationed in Germany and Afghanistan and is now living in Louisiana. He and his very patient wife, who has become a master at packing, finding new friends and being the master of flexibility, have one lovely little daughter who loves to be naked and a son due in a couple of weeks. Their ATC shows a lion – strong and proud. I wanted to create a feeling of courage and adventure.
