Well, I finished him!!! He has a little dictionary collar and hat with silver trim. Plus he's so sparkly!!! I have the twine hanger coming out of the top of his hat so he can hang on the tree. I'll add him to the magazine giveaway, OK?? Just leave a comment ON THIS POST to win the premiere issue of Food Network Magazine and my sweet little snowman ornament!!! I'll pick a winner Monday after 6 pm EST!!!
Remember the rusty stars, and remember how I'm dreaming of a white (more like vanilla :) Christmas? Here's my simple transformation, a little white spray paint, then coated with more of a vanilla acrylic paint and a little tan as well then sprayed with spray adhesive and coated with two different glitters!!! Ultra fine white and diamond dust....tied with beautiful vanilla seam binding! I still want to print out something from the computer and add it too... probably a small banner that says "Peace"....we'll see!
Speaking of a vanilla Christmas, I have this idea in my head... I'm not sure if it'll work, but you know that I'm a frugal girl and I have tons of muslin scraps, right? What if I were to make several long strips of muslin that were clipped every couple of inches or so, then wash them so they will fray really nicely and then sew them all together to create my own custom vanilla garland??! It may look awful but I just have to try.....you never know!!
DH's parents gave us a truckload of firewood today and we've been enjoying this ALL DAY!! Isn't it wonderful? I love the crackling sounds that wood makes in the fireplace ~
