It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!

Good morning my blogging friends!!!! I hope you had a fantabulous weekend!!! I was busy once again, which seems to be the story of my life!!! I promised pictures of the candy bar snowman I made last week and here they are!!!!
Aren't these guys adorable?? I found them here, on this wonderful site. You can follow her links to get the free download for the snowman face. Be sure to spend some time on Kerry's site - as she is a great papercrafter! She has some awesome ideas!

I had some leftover fleece so I sewed a tube and cut it to about 5 inches or so to make the hat. I tied the top with DMC floss and added a little jingle bell for festivity!!!! The scarf is just made from some extra fleece I cut into a strip and tied around the neck! (I believe that you can find a video of how she made her's on her website!)

I think these are going to be awesome teacher's gifts, added to a gift of cocoa and a candy cane in a mug, anything! What a great way to brighten someone's day- even after Christmas!!!!! In the blah, dreary days of late January, pop one of these on someone's desk and watch the smiles appear!!!

If you want to see one of these (or several) in person- be sure to stop by the 17th annual craft fair this weekend at the old Nichol's building in Wilton (on Rt 156) this Saturday. There is going to be a boatload of crafters there and entertainment as well!!! I hope to see YOU there!

Thanks for popping in today!

*** Remember - there is only 38 more days till Christmas!!***
