Disclaimer: any resemblance to MsDebbieP and her hat is entirely accidental!

I have a friend who collects snowmen and she persuaded me to carve one last year, which my daughter confiscated. So I carved a different one for my friend. This is my first one this year and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can at least post some pictures before they start grabbing at it! They are kinda fun to carve, but not as easy as I thought they would be. Still learning as I go. Thanks for looking!

Really good – is it a tree ornament or a larger desk type ornament?

Tabletop thingie…. old Lynn Doughty always says you can charge more if it has a pretty base and I need all the help I can get!

That’s a great snowman Mike you have a real talent for carving It kind of reminds me of those Scandinavian chip carvings. Well done, just don’t show it to your daughter.
God bless
