I've been making (and selling) faux snowballs and snowblocks for a few years.
It all started when I had an idea for a project that included a galvanized pail that I had painted.
I wanted to fill it with snowballs and under-lighting.
Well, it has "snowballed" from there.
These are what I decked my Christmas tree with this year.
I wanted to show you my frosty ornaments before they head back into storage.

The Angel in my life

She is my pleasant distraction.

I've got a sneaking suspicion it's time for my medicine.

It is?!!

P-L-E-A-S-E! NOT the yucky stuff!!

Wait a minute, whats this?

I must give this the sniff test.

This is too good to be medicine.
It tastes like my yummy favorite...YOGURT.

And we have success.

Sares said...

Whatever you have to do to trick them! I love your snowballs. You had me snowballed, i thought they were going to turn out to be snowcones! They are absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for shariny the icy beauties and have a terrific weekendg

Debbie said...

The snowballs look so real! And Angel is beautiful. I have two of my own and there are days I wonder what I would be like without them.

Stay warm,

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hello Sara...oooh your kitty is adorable! Kitty kisses precious little baby... xoxo Julie Marie

Justine said...

OMG, she is soooooooooooo beautiful! Do you give her pills, or is it liquid stuff? If it's pills, but Greenies Pill Pockets. They've been a lifesaver for me with Simmie! I actually buy the dog ones (Chicken) because they're huge and each one I can break off pieces and use it at least 5 times!

Now, I really want to know how you made those pretty snow balls!!!

Justine :o )

Sue said...

Sara, Those snowballs are way too cool! I don't remember seeing then in your shop last time I was there. I am interested in them - can you get back with me about them? Thanks, schweetie.

*Nice kitty-kitty*~~pat~pat~

We had an all white cat for 18 years, named appropriately Snowball. He was deaf but a wonderful companion to my DD throughout her childhood. She even had a wedding picture taken with him!

Thanks for stopping by & adding your well wishes for my friends & the poor people of Haiti.

I thought I would stop over and tell you that I did have craft therapy today and it was wonderful. Nothing like creating something fun to make you feel so much better....your kitty sure looks like she is enjoying whatever meds she needs...maybe I should try that!
Thanks for visiting...
