What can I say? I'm on a snowman binge. I can't believe how good it feels sculpting with paper mache clay again. I'm trying to take it slowly and not overdo but when it's this much fun it's hard to take it slow. So far my hand is holding up and I'm getting a few pieces ready for the online Christmas craft show. My goal is to complete six snowmen for the show and this is the fourth one that I've finished. The final two are nearing completion and should be finished within the next week. 

Without saying more it is my pleasure to introduce Seymour the snowman.

I just love the way his little carrot nose turns up.

I really like the way the metallic paints look when dry brushed over the base colors. They look much nicer in natural lighting but since it's so dark here this time of year I have to make do with my light bar and flash.

Seymour and the other snowmen that I've posted so far are between 8 1/4" and 8 1/2" tall and 3" wide. This makes them the idea size for decorating is tight spots. I intend to sit one of my snowmen on my fireplace mantel beside a brass candle holder.

Just a reminder, the Old Fashioned Christmas Craft Show is less than two weeks away.

Hope you've enjoyed seeing another snowman and  you're having a wonderful weekend.

As always, thanks for stopping by.

Hi Miss Maddyrose, Bellamine & Wendy,

Gee, from the weather reports it looks like a lot of towns here in this part of the world are having fun building real snowmen.

But since you live at the North Pole I guess it's not that exciting since you can build one anytime you want.

Is the North Pole in darkness 24 hours a day now? WOW, that sounds like so much fun.


We like Seymour.

This one's nose is so cute. You have such a way with the paper clay. I've bought some to play with but has 2 more things to finish first....a certain tree and a donkey. Oma Linda
