It’s Snowing Snowmen!
I love how WordPress makes it snow on my blog each year for the month of December. Noticing this, I decided to whip up a post regarding snowmen (although, as always, this could lead me in all sorts of directions). There’s something about the round jolliness of snowmen that brings a smile to even the grumpiest scrooge.
Can’t miss a chance to put picture books in my post. 🙂 Here are some favorites featuring snowmen.I haven’t built a real snowman in many years, probably not since I helped make this silly snow bunny with my children.Here are some easy-to-make pins from my felt craft phase. You just cut out two shapes twice, white for the front and back of the snowman and another color for his/her hat, add embroidery details, stuff with a little bit of cotton batting and stitch them up.Another kind of snowman I’ve made quite often is pretty tasty and often gets requested for the annual cookie swap. Use your favorite cake mix and frosting for fast results.I added instructions for this cake to my Recipes & Crafts page. Here’s a copy:Speaking of the annual cookie swap, this event with my childhood friends has been going on for thirty years. There are seven of us and we take turns hosting each year. Last year one of my friends used this fun layout for her place settings.We draw names for presents and each of us makes seven dozen cookies to share. A potluck feast happens, as well. I’m hoping if I make the following collage of group photos very tiny, I won’t get in trouble with any of my camera-shy friends. It seems like hardly any time has gone by since we started doing this, but you might be able to pick out the oldest gatherings by some of our big hairdos. I had a feeling I’d be adding more to this post. After reading some of your wonderful comments, I remembered this little snowman—he’s a mug with a book on his head!
How about you? Do you have a snowman collection or maybe a favorite snowman memory?
