these are fantastic, and i especially love the photos with each creator! i am always amazed to see how one base product can become so many wonderful things.


Michelle, I love these larger snowmen, too!! How creative...the old Christmas stamp, bottle cap, and vintage measuring spoons! Oh my! Thank you for the inspiration...items that I never would have thought about using turned out so unique!


Hi Michelle! My snowman (from Deb's ornament swap) came on Monday and he's on the tree already. I just love him-he's fun and whimsical and funky. I am honored to have this ornament made by you-a true artist! I wish I lived close enough to be in the group making the large ones. They are all masterpieces! Hope you enjoyed this swap-you helped make it special for all of us in Group 1.
Peace and Joy at Christmas.

Do you have any snowman cut outs I can purchase to decorate one for myself. Those are amazing.


That looks so fun. Are you teaching a workshop on Art Journaling? I was tempted to ask for a kit of art supplies and a journal for Christmas...but then we got all "Advent Conspiracy" and aren't swapping presents with adults this year. :) (really, I am glad about that...plus, my family isn't artistic, so they wouldn't really even know where to begin to find the right things!)

If you ever do teach a class, I'd love to get in on it, It's something I'd love to do, but dont' really know where to begin. I did by myself some colored pencils the other day, I guess that's a start. Eryn

looks like so much fun!! And they all turned out so fabulous and unique!
