  1. What a blizzard, there is so much inspiration here. First, I love it that you save the cotton ball from the vitamins, you are a kindred spirit. Second, each one is so unique. Those pasta men are adorable, sort of the godfather of snowmen.

  2. I cannot believe how many different snowmen you have created. They are so unique. What a treasure you are giving!

    I love it! I was thinking today, what great craft ideas these would be for our co-op! I may have to get some directions from you on a few or maybe all! ;)

    I went through another closet and found some puzzle pieces for you. :)

  4. Love the melted snowmen!!!! So clever!

  5. I am in awe!!!!! You are so clever and they are sooo cute!!

  6. These are SOOOO very unique!
    But, I do have to say, the "Pick your nose" snowman is just too too funny!

  7. They are all delightful, whimsical, and I have to say I got a good chuckle from the magnetic "pick your nose" snowman! I think your MIL will be overwhelmed with these!

  8. I love your melted snowman ornament!!!!
