Tiered Skirt Tutorial

A friend of mine, Laura, mentioned that she also had a blog but that she didn't really do anything on it a lot. I decided to check it out and I love it! A Make It Yourself Mom's Diary.
Laura, you really should keep it up!
This is one of the posts I really liked.
These are her girls, aren't they so cute!!
This is another skirt she made up.
She really is an amazing sewer.
You should check her out and give her a kick in the butt!

Bundle Up! Snowman

This guy is super easy to make. Very little cuts and easy painting.
He has a base that he stands on with a cute little scarf.
I also have this same type of idea made into a scarecrow.

Don't forget to Bundle Up!

The Big Nosed Snowman

This is the easiest snowman in the world!
I made it several years ago and made a few last year for gifts.
It is made from a 4x4 post and scraps.
It is sanded and has stenciled stars.

The hat brim and nose are made form scrap wood.

I outlined the stars with a sharpie for more detail.
Fun, easy and CUTE!

Stuffed Snow Man

Another cold guy!
this is my favorite of all my snowmen.
I made it at a church activity in my sister ward about 10 years ago.
It is fabric stuffed with filling.
His little ski's and sign are so cute!

It has lasted several moves and more than a few breaks, but he is still the cutest of my snowmen.

Let It Snow-Man

Another Snowman!
I love this guy. He hangs just inside the front door.
My sister, Kristen, made this for me a few years back.
He has a real hat on his head!
He is ready to shovel some snow.

I love the snow affect on it. So creative!
Let it Snow Man!

Gentleman Snowman

I decided to skip Thanksgiving this year.
Don't hate me.
I just don't really love Thanksgiving. All that work cooking and decorating for one day. My kids don't even like the foods for Thanksgiving. So this year we are just doing a yummy dinner that everyone loves and inviting my sister to join us. That is the real point right!? Family!
So instead of Thanksgiving I have decided to jump straight to Christmas. I put my Christmas decorations, minus the tree, up last week. And I am adding more and more as the days go on.
I love Snowmen!
They are my favorite decoration for winter/Christmas.
Over the next several days I will be showing off several of my snowmen decorations
This big guy I made at a Super Saturday YEARS ago in my sisters ward.
He stands at the front door greeting everyone that enters.

I love that little scarf!

I have added more pine cones this year. Most of them fell off in storage.
Love him!

Perfect to make for any season, just change the colors.
Thanks Jen.!
