My 100th post - Popcycle stick snowman and a giveaway

This is my 100th Post.

I have to have a Giveaway stay tune till the end of the post.

My Daughter and I made these Popsicle stick Snowmen.

 To make these you need to gather up your supplies.
8 Popsicle sticks
black buttons
black and white paint
permanent pens black & silver
orange paper in the shape of odd shaped triangle
 I glued the sticks together like this
 We painted the top black and the bottom white.  Isn't she cute.  She was having so much fun doing this project with mom.

 Let it dry. Add the buttons paper and draw a mouth. 
They are done.  Really easy to make right.

OK so now for the 100th post "Giveaway". 
I made this snowman as part of my Christmas Banner view the banner Here.  So I have made one just like it for a door hanger.  That is what I am giving away.

 **To enter just leave me a comment about your favorite Christmas tradition. This giveaway will  be open until Dec 5th at 5:00pm CST.

On a different note I made my first cheese cake ever.  It turned out delicious.  YUM YUM


  1. Wow - I have to pick just one! My family reads "The Night Before Christmas" when its time for the kids to get ready for bed on Christmas Eve. I don't know how he does it, but Santa shows up just as the book is finished. We hear his sleigh bells outside and him yelling Merry Christmas...on Dasher, On Dancer, etc. So fun to see the excitement on the kiddos faces!

    By the way - Ca Ute popcicle stick snowmen! Thanks for planting your creative seeds at Plant a Punkin Seed Party!

  2. Darn, I won't win, but:
    Our favorite tradition so far is making the chocolate pecan toffee together. Family looks forward to it every year. Today the kids and I made beaded tree and santa necklaces...they look alright, but not gift worthy if you know what I mean...then I'll finish my Silk Chocolate Coffee and Russian Teas put in FANCY bags for gifts. You have such a great talent for sewing projects...I must say I wish I had an ounce of it. Have a great day... :)

  3. My favorite holiday traditions is having mexican buffet with lots of tacos and waiting up to try to catch Santa, then waking up and having a large christmas breakfast!

  4. Great post! I would love it if you would link this up to my Strut Your Stuff Party!

  5. I love the snowman! Too cute! Hope you share with my Pink Hippo Party @
    And my favorite Christmas tradition is making Christmas ornaments with the kids each year. They love to paint them and hang them.. and each year I can see the progression of their abilities!

  6. Our family is trying to start our own traditions so we will be opening new pjs on Christmas Eve and reading the story of Baby Jesus' arrival as well as setting out cookies and milk for Santa, a carrot for Ruolph and an little note of thanks to Santa. We will also be making some Christmas ornaments as the month goes on

  7. Love the popsicle snowmen! We love reading Christmas books.

  11. ERGHHH, I missed this giveaway, bummer. This is what I get for not commenting on time, :(

    I love these little snowmen, my kids have done these in school, and they are part of my most treasured ornaments, naturally. Thanks for the tutorial, and linking to **Amaze me August**.

    Also thanks for entering my giveaway, GOOD LUCK, and THANKS for all your support.

  12. Our favourite family tradition is hanging the Special Santa Key on the door at my parents' house on Christmas Eve so Santa can get in. They have woodstoves so the stovepipe is not wide enough (so the kids say) and my sister-in-law gave me the special Santa Key on my oldest daughter's first Christmas. It is the first thing that gets packed when we're getting ready to head to my parents' for Christmas. Thank you for your wonderful site, my girls and I ware looking forward to making some of these for gifts.
