Heirlooms are child’s play

I’m late again! That’s because I really wanted to make a snow globe, but I couldn’t blow one large enough at the torch, and couldn’t find one I liked online. And so, after much deliberation, I made a music box instead.

As I said in this month’s introductory post, I’d never heard of Tolkien’s letters from Father Christmas, and I was somewhat humbled by the work he went through to create something magical for his children. So, in short, that’s what I set out to do. Something that may (hopefully!) survive the road to adulthood with a bit of its magic intact, so that it is still proudly owned when Dora the Explorer and Ben 10 have been relegated to fading memories.
