My Snowmen

I LOVE SNOWMEN!  Do you?  We don't get a lot of snow down here in Alabama, so when we do get the white stuff, I always make a snowman. 

Since we don't always get snow, I make my own
 snowmen here in the warmth of my home.
I started making these guys several years ago
when I became interested in vintage-style Halloween decorations.
Since I couldn't find the items I wanted,
I began to make things.  After I made Halloween items,
 I decided to make vintage-style snowmen, too. I had thought
I might sell my art on ETSY or join an on-line crafting group
 and that is why I decided to start this blog, Marsha's Creekside Creations.

My snowmen (and women) are jolly and warm.

Some of my snowmen have names.  This is "Dapper Dan."

My snowmen smile even on the warmest winter days. 

This is "Jack Frost."  He's ready to blow some chilly air your way.

My little snowmen aren't just cute, they have a purpose, too.
  They are little boxes that can hide treats or small gifts.

Can't you just hear the words to the song,
 "In the meadow, we can build a snowman..."


This guy has a lot of personality.  He is very jolly. 
I named him, "Party Snowman."

This is "Peppermint Pattie."

 I think this guy needs a hat.  What do you think?


I try to use a lot of detail when I make my snowmen. 
I make the little ruffle collars from crepe paper that I fold and glue. 
 There is a lot of crepe paper in each collar.

 I think this guys have a little bit of a vintage feel to them. 
Do you agree?

 She's wearing a little Christmas wreath on her frosty head for a hat.


My little snowmen smile all the time.
They do not fear the sun's rays like the Frosty in the song.
They love a sunny day!

I hope they've brought a smile to your face today.
