A Tiny Stuffed Snowman

stuffed snowman ornament This year for our tree, we are using only handmade ornaments. The kids have loved working on all kinds of different ornaments. Our oldest made this snowman. This little guy is full of fantastic details, a pointy 3d nose, a separate thumb on his mitten hand. Such wonderful detail and all on a snowman that’s only about an inch tall. I’m so proud of my kids and I love that they have such creative imaginations. It just really hit me today that we only have 3 days until we leave on a trip to visit some family for the next couple of weeks. I have tons to do, and am just hoping that it all gets done. I am looking forward to being able to relax a little bit though. I also wanted to let you know that after a few inquiries about how I made my vintage button heart, I made a tutorial here. Hope you guys have lots of fun making them. Have a fantastic day, I better get back to the laundry and packing.

    What a cute snowman – kids are naturally so creative, aren’t they, especially if they see us making things too.
    And thanks so much for the button heart tutorial- I am definitely going to make one/some!

    What, oh what will the precious first born grow up to be? I’d like them to stay little forever, but cannot wait to see all of their lives unfold. I feel so lucky to be a part of that.
