My Bigheaded Snowman


This fella makes me smile! Do you remember when you were a kid and went out after a snow to make a snowman (or snowwoman)? Remember rolling the snow into separate balls to form the body. Once you got it put together and stepped back to admire your handiwork; did the head look bigger than it should? Mine always did. My snowmen usually had a case of the bighead. Well this is what happend to this snowfella. I rolled and rolled the head in magical snowflakes and whaaa-laaah, look how it turned out. I don't know, there is something adorable about this bigheaded fella. I used a candle stick for the base. I've had that candle stick for years. I think it even traveled to Guam with me..yup, we've been together for a long time. I recently ran across it while I was looking for something else. Isn't that always the case? If you can't find something when you are looking for it, you can almost quarantee that you will find it later when you are looking for something else.

I orginally wanted to leave him simply with his big head on the candle stick, put a tie around his skinny neck and a hat with a few this and thats attached to his big ol head. But he looked so skinny, like he hadn't had enough bowls of snowflakes so I put a primmed-up chenille coat on him to beef him up. I added a cinnamon salt dough snowflake to his coat along with a jingle bell. To finish him off I topped his big ol head with a tall stove pipe hat adorned with a few this and thats and attached a prim tag to him. He's been dusted well with fairy snow dust (watch out he might start to laugh and dance around); I then added him to my Etsy shoppe where Donna of Countercrafts snatched him up. So he's going to live with her and make her smile....I hope.

Well, that's the tale of the big-headed snowman. He might be big-headed but he still looks humble.

Til next time.
