Snowmen in March

I just had to share with you the cute marshmallow snowmen I made to give away during the holidays.  I know that Christmas has been long gone and it's almost Easter, but I've been wanting to post this since December!
These cute treats was one of the only things I made to give to the day care workers, etc.  Got this cute idea from Jessica Witty who is a designer for Papertrey, Inc.  Her blog Witticisms is awesome and I was so inspired by her.    You can find her post for the snowmen marshmallow project HERE.  Here's the snow guys after getting dipped in white chocolate waiting to get dry.
A close up shot... I added mini chocolate chips for the eyes and cut little pieces of orange slice candy for the noses.  Somehow, I needed to add a face!  Funny thing is when the dipped marshmallows are waiting to dry, some of them started to slide down.  I ended up trimming the sticks.

Here they are, all dried and wrapped ready to be given away.   Aren't they fun?!  I had so much fun making them with help from Tobie (Dad's caregiver).
Here's a close up of the tag that I attached to each treat.
I know that posting back to back will not be happening too often just yet, but I had a few minutes to spare while waiting to get my turn to shower and off to bed I go. 
Thank you to those who already left encouraging comments for me on my last post.  It really brightens up my day reading them and to know that you all are such caring people!
In the weeks to come, I will be weeding out all kinds of craft things that I will not be using and will end up having a nice craft sale sometime in the near future.  I'll be sure to announce that on my blog so you can plan on stopping by to get some bargains!  Thanks for stopping by!!

  1. OMGosh Teri, these are too stinkin' cute! I'm sure they all loved & appreciated it. I used to give all the nurses & workers at the nursing home where my mom was a little treat (before my major crafting days)during the holidays & they appreciated it so much...you might think I gave them a million dollars. Families don't always think about them so they appreciate the people that do.

  2. The snowmen are super cute. I am sure that the people that received them at the nursing home loved them. They are much too pretty to eat. Can't wait to see what you will be selling. Hugs!

  3. Oh, those snowmen were adorable. They are just too darn cute to eat but at least they won't melt. I know it was an extremely difficult decision for you to make, Teri, regarding SU but it was the right one for you. You need to take care of yourself, too. I know you'll be back doing what you love. Hang in there.
