“Snowmen fall from heaven… unassembled.”

– Unknown



1 pajama-clad crafty kiddo
(and her curious baby sister)

3 mini terracotta pots

3 wooden ball knobs

1 permanent marker

copious amounts of
white paint and glue

random bits and pieces of design, including:
puff balls, pipe cleaners, felt, and bitty buttons

a little bit of whimsy





But wait! These three are two-faced!

      Ro, no. But T got to play with them for the rest of the day before they became for decorative use only. . . they ARE mostly made from a mini terracotta flower pot, and I doubt they’d have stood up to much more abuse!
