As we were unpacking all the figures, I began to have flashbacks of how last year the whole scene looked...
...barren and kinda lonely on a table all by itself. So this year we wanted it front and center in the bookcase, but it needed a background. What do you call them? You know - the things like this: For a moment I considered grabbing some wood scraps from the garage to see what I could conjure up, but since I wanted it to look nice rather than something like this we went a different route. Which turned out to be the EASIER route.
Love it when that happens.
