A chance of snow...

Hello! Hope you are having a nice day!  I have a fun project to share with you today.  It is not stamping related, but I just couldn't resist showing you!  A while back I saw a similar idea on Pinterest.  I just LOVE it there!!  Anyhow, one day while bee-bopping around on the site I came across these cute snowmen made from 2 x 4's!  We happen to be eyeball deep in about 23 different  house projects right now and so I knew scrounging up some 2 x 4 bits and pieces would be super easy!  I found some scrap and my very sweet son cut them up for me and just look what I turned them into:

Are they not the cutest things ever?!!!  

I wood painted all of the individual pieces and then wood glued them all together!  I coated them all with a spray finish to protect them from the weather since they will be spending this Christmas season outside!

I am just head over heels in love with these cuties!  I had the best time making them!

I am  on the fence about giving them smiles, but will probably wind up adding some silly smiles with a sharpie marker!

They all have their own little personalities!

I originally wanted to give them all hats and scarves, but am worried that it they get rained on the fleece might  bleed.  So only one got clothes! If she weathers the weather well then the others may get winter wear too!

The hats are made from wood scraps too!

So cute!!  So easy!!

I really like the way these long ones came out!

I made as many as I could find scraps for, but as soon as another project leaves some bits and pieces laying around I plan to add to this little snow family! : o)

Here they all are waiting to greet visitors on our front steps!  I had such a good time making these!  I really, really like snowmen and these were so easy to put together!  Win, win!

I have a bazillion things to do today so I am off!  Hope you have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!
