Snow Ladies by Under My Umbrella

I, unlike most of the ladies of WYLTC was not singing snowman songs until I read Krystal's post on Monday.  After that I couldn't stop.   If I wasn't singing "Do you want to build a snowman" one of my kids has been.   One of my Facebook friends shared a great link online where you can watch Frozen for free.  We have managed to watch it three times since :)  This whole making a snowman process turned into a musical.  I started with "Do you want to build a snowman" as I was looking for inspiration for ideas.  I decided on a few 6 inch snow ladies.  I was inspired by the Crafty Sister's bunnies (gosh, they were cute!) a while back :)

As I was drawing my pattern I was debating if I wanted a skinny snow lady or a chunky one.  My song turned into "I like big butts and I cannot lie".  Yes, I went from G rated to PG-13 in a few seconds flat.  I knew chunky was the way to go.  I grabbed some wood and cut it out on my scroll saw, which by the way, is on it's last leg.  I can't even tell you how many I have gone through!

Sand that wood and then have your daughter who is now singing, "Would you like to build a snowman" and is so inspired wants to paint your project for you... do exactly that.  My other daughter added the jewels and I got busy crocheting some various items for these girls to wear.  Finally, I dressed these girls up and my song went to "Don't you wish your snowman was hot like mine".  I guess it should be cold but I didn't think about that until now!   And that's the end of the musical!  I did glue these ladies together with some hot glue so they would stand on their own.  They are staggered some forward and some back but the pic really doesn't show it.

Well that's it for me.  I had a fun time creating to music and seeing all the cute snowmen the ladies of WYLTC have whipped up.  Everyone keep warm!

Melinda I am seriously laughing! We must be about the same age because your song cache is about what mine is.:) These turned out so cute! Love them!
