I think I may start doing snowman family portrait custom orders. I have no idea if anyone would be interested in one but I love this idea and want to share it with as many people as possible. Spread the word if you have as snowman fanatic. What a great gift idea.

Snowman Family Portrait-the extended family version
I have posted a couple of times about my snowman family portrait idea. This year my husbands grandma has been working really hard on a major gift for each of the grandchildren. She is a family history buff and so I know it is related to family history. In turn I wanted to make her something special and had the idea to make her a huge snowman family portrait of all her posterity. I was apprehensive because I knew that meant a lot of little snow people and I was getting a late start but I just felt like it was the right gift for her and so I set into the project and felt like it just flowed. I hand drew every pattern piece and had just the right inspiration when I needed it. I think it was a gift that was meant to be. I hope she doesn't check this before Christmas (Grandma Connie if you are reading-go no further). Here is the finished product with a few highlights of some of my favorites.
