I've decided to remedy the problem for her birthday (in September) so that this coming Christmas, she can decorate with button nose snowmen.
I have discovered that this self-imposed challenge is very invigorating. It makes me stretch my imagination and look at materials in a new way. I hope you stick with me through the journey.
Today I am revealing clothes line snowmen, which will make sixteen.
They took exactly a hundred feet of clothes line (I cut off about two inches when I finished the baby). The Teen-aged Son is a milk bottle, Pa is a coffee creamer bottle, Baby is a medicine bottle, and Ma is a giant plastic Easter Egg and a ball.
Ma seemed the perfect shape for an apron and so she is the inspiration for this whole group of 'country bumpkin' snowmen.
Getting a positive remark out of my husband for anything I do (including making great meals and dressing nice) is rare. He thought the baby was cute (and I thought the baby was dumb looking). :)
I will be sharing this at:
