Happy 2012! Here we are on a brand new year...isn't that exciting! What better way to start off the new year than with something brand new. So without further ado I would like to introduce you to Sno.
The idea for him began about ten days ago. I was rummaging through my supplies and found a bag labeled lost eyes. Even though I use the premium quality eyes, they are hand blown glass and occasionally one will have a defect and pop when I set them. There were two spare eyes in the bag that didn't have a mate. In my hand they reminded me of my favorite emoticon which looks like this: O.o
I started thinking that could be cute on something. I went back and forth...bear...snowman...snowman...bear? Hmmm. Then I thought since I am wanting to do something chibi-esque...why not combine both! Sno is a brand new pattern though. He has been adapted from my existing snowman and bear patterns, but with some changes. His head is much larger than the previous snowmen, and his body and limbs are shorter than the bears. He is the very first fully jointed snowman.
I hope you like him, as cute as he is in the pics...he is much more charming in person!
You can visit Sno on my website from the animals page.
I hope you all have a wonderful year! I have all sorts of surprises in store for you.
Hugs, K. <3
