That doesn’t look like a snowman, does it? No, but I am the proud aunt of Duke, the nicest dog in my world, and I get to stay with him for a whole week! What a Christmas present! Just look at those eyes ~ what a heart breaker!
While Duke snoozes, I go to work finishing my snowmen.
Here’s Wynter, a Freebie design from Bird in the Hand Primitives, in progress with the Valdani colors I used.
After I finished punching Wynter, I aged it with coffee, backed and edged it with wool and attached it to a board.

I always have fun making make dos.
This one was particularly fun because I decided to use an antique porcelain faucet as the base, which is rounded. So, this snowman gets to wobble!
The best thing about the faucet is that it’s a cold water tap ~ I was so excited when I found it, I just couldn’t resist!
This happy snowman was on etsy but will be wending his way to his new home in Canada, soon. I think he’ll fit right in!
Duke and I are enjoying the wintry weather, and hope you are doing the same!
