christmas in july...

it is HOT! in new england...sticky, hot and humid...as my studio is not air conditioned i have not been spending much time creating...early in the morning before it gets steamy, maybe. i did have a burst of energy yesterday and started making some snowmen. these are  works-in-progress...i still have to add some sparkle and embellishments...i learned my lesson last year when between thanksgiving  and christmas i was  CRAZY making these guys. the thing i love about , these snowmen is putting all the piece together, making the crazy little hats and scarfs, adding personality to each piece... i am very excited in november i will be co teaching a class at ARTASCOPE in Maine...portland maine! more on this later....we will be creating snowmen and other fabulous holiday decor....soon....soon i will be sharing...i will be teaching this class with Catherine Mathews-Scanlon who has some amazing ideas!
so here are some works-in-progress....

Christmas in July makes sense to us who live 'down under' in NZ. Our seasons are so out of sync with our festivals and how we celebrate them. I think we should have Christmas in mid winter so we can do the whole "gather round the fire with warming food and drink' thing - many people do celebrate now.

Uh oh! Here comes the next generation of snow people! 4th generation, right?! Love the new headgear.
