I have a thing for snowmen and GLUE!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Mine was great, lots of food, fun and family.
I didn't do any of the after Thanksgiving sales though - Not brave enough!!! (LOL)

If you didn't know it by now, I have a thing for snowmen!!! I love to make projects that include them somehow. I also have a small (okay, maybe not so small) collection of them that grows every Christmas. Unfortunately, I don't get to keep this one! I made this, especially for Mrs Clark, my little girl's teacher. She recently moved here to Florida from New York, and I thought this might bring her a little "Snowy Christmas Cheer" even if we won't get any snow here!!!

Supplies used:
Patterned paper, chipboard and letters stickers - Scenic Route
Pearls - Kaiser Crafts
Wood door hanger and snowman - Hobby Lobby
Other - glitter, paint and sequins.

Okay, now I can share some really FABULOUS news! I made the Helmar USA design team!!! Is that crazy or what, I still can't believe it, especially when I found out who else made the team. I can't wait to try out all the different kinds of glue and experiment with some new techniques. Some really talented ladies will be on the team with me, check them out for yourself.
Before I go, I just wanted to share
are a few more snowmen friends of mine.

This one is a gift tag, that can be used as an ornament after the gift has been opened. The head of the tag is a wood ornament that was altered with micro beads, patterned paper, rub-ons and paint. A chipboard tag was glued to the back of the ornament to form the body and then embellished with buttons and some more rub-ons.

This next one is a gift card holder, which reminds me, Mothers and Daughters challenge this week is to make a gift card holder. More details here.


Have a great week everyone!!!
