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.







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.

  2. That is truly a labor of love. I wish I could be there to see your grandmother's reaction. That, and everyone else's when they see their snowman.
