Snow And Snowmen...

These fine snow folks were created by my grandchildren a few weeks ago during the first snow of the season. 
We are preparing here for another snow storm in a few days. 
Below are a few more of my holiday photos. 
Some are of special gifts created by me or of special gifts made for me.
others are simply photos of random holiday things...
Wishing you all a blessed New Year!

  7. What a wonderfully creative Holiday time you're having Linda!! :) I've loved looking through all your pics, and esp loving your altered domino pendants. I've been wanting to do something with my dominos, like a mini accordian book! Think I saw them on Gail's site.
    Thank you for the lovely heartfelt New Year wishes, which I wish right back at you. Truly hope it's a wonderful one full of hope and love. ♥

  10. Linda, I loved all of the goodies you made, and my favorite was that white shimmery star which I plan on keeping out all displayed on my art table. Thank you again, my friend. LOVE those snowmen. Too cute.

  11. The snowmen are wonderful, Linda, and bring back childhood memories up north. But no snow in these parts. We're blessed that winter has finally stopped by to say hello.

    Love all of your projects. The pom pom wreath is such a sweet tribute to your sister. A nice remembrance. Love the angel tags, and really everything you've shown are so very pleasing.

    Blessings,
