Snowman Makeover

Hi Everyone!

This year's decorating has been going very slowly. I've been having some health issues that is making it difficult for me to do very much. And it doesn't help that I tend to overwhelm and over work myself with a lot of things to do which is creating too much stress for me and in turn making things worse health wise. So today, in the effort to distress a bit, I took a little break and I did something that always seems to help me relax....I crafted!

This little guy was a gift from my sweet brother-in-law, Miguel. He was a sample that his office was getting ready to toss out because of this...

When Miguel saw it, he immediately thought of me. He knows how much I love snow people and he thought that if anyone would be able to give this little guy new life it would be me...Isn't that sweet?!

So in keeping with my new leopard print Christmas theme I made him a new little leopard print cap and pant cuffs.

I think he looks rather stylish with his new look, don't you?

Thank you for stopping by for a visit today.
Wishing you a wonderful day.

Hugs and Kisses,

Ana dear, are you better now? I'm sorry to hear you did not fit. You who help me with a smile to take away the greyness of my moments, "no." Reading your enthusiasm you put in the little things to help me take things more positive. Your new little friend is very fashionable. I love it! Do you have a big heart and a great brother in law. a big hug. Gets better soon!

Good morning Sweet Ana,

Sorry you aren't feeling well!! I too can RElate. I have to say that the snowman looks MUCH better for Christmas Present than he did for Christmas Past. You just have the eye and the knack for design and creativity! He is perfect with your new ornaments.

Shabbygal said...

Irma@CosasBellas said...

Miguel was right, if anyone could pump life back into this little guy it would be you. He looks even cuter than when he started, cracked head or not. lol Now he's stylin'!
I hope you feel better soon, I've had some pretty bad days myself.

Love you much,

Ana...your snowman is adorable and so fitting with your theme. I hope that you are feeling better soon!

Cindy said...

Dearest Ana,
I'm so sorry to hear that you're not feeling well again. I hope you will improve health wise very soon.
Your little snowman is adorable! I love the little hat and pant cuffs, you have given me a wonderful idea. I have a snowman who lost the side of his head, perhaps I could do something like that for him.
Thank you for the inspiration!
Have a sweet, lazy day!
Hugs, Cindy

I just happened across your blog and saw your adorable snowman. Nothing like a little crafting to make something new again!

Lady Pamela said...

What a great idea to mend a broken snow person. Fabulous. Do I see a leopard print theme this Christmas?
Great job.

Lady Pamela said...

I'm sorry, I missed the first part about your poor health. I am sending you a hug over the internet. That may help a little.
*Hugs and Smiles* Sweet friend.

I hope you feel better soon {{{hugs}}}
