The Snow People

Here I am again.  I've been sorting through some pictures I took of my paper mache projects and found some I'd like to share with you.

When I first started sculpting I made a snow family. My sister was already making sculptures of Santa and I figured one Santa artist in the family was enough. Since I've always had a soft spot in my heart or head for snowmen, adding to my already impressive collection seemed like the thing to do. Also making snow figures seemed somehow easier.  Carrot nose and coal eyes, what could be easier? Sure, there's arms and maybe a hat or scarf, but all in all still pretty simple. 

I started out by making a little girl holding a rag doll.  I enjoyed making her so much that I decided to make her a little sister.  One piece lead to another and soon I had a family of seven.  Following are a few pictures of them.

Here's Crystal with her mother and baby sister.

Here are the snow kids with their father

Here are the four children
I've decided that if I make any more snow people they will all be children as they are so much fun to make and look at.
So now you've seen my snow people. Did they bring a smile to your face like they did to mine? Let me know what you think.

They brought a smile to my face :-)
Very cute, and I agree the children are more fun than the parents. Just like real people.

Since you two are my sisters you already know of my passion for snowmen. I'm glad that these little ones make other people smile too.
