Hold on to Yer Hat!

My 2011 Snowman ornaments are appearing... tobogganers who slide down the hill so fast, their hats are liable to fly off!

The process takes a good bit of time, as this ain't no indutrialised factory, let me tell you! Fat, round bodies are cut, then edges ground, carrot noses cut and applied, buttons enamelled on...

... backing cut, wires cut and bent...

...sleds cut and enamelled...

... arms fire-cut and stretched...

...(arms)...

... and despite all the effort, sometimes they lose their noses during the firing process... sliding too fast?
Come see them live at the Christmas Craft Fair in St. John's Nov. 9-13, and the Best Coast Christmas Craft Fair in Corner Brook, Nov. 25-27.
