Theraputic Snowman

I made this little snowman as a gift for
a special person in my life.

The snowman was inspired by the super
creative Sue Pelletier and featured in the
Nov/Dec 2008 Cloth-Paper-Scissors magazine.

Every year, from the time we were little babies, the day after Thanksgiving, my 2 younger sisters, my mom, my grandmother and my aunt and I used to bundle up and take the Southshore train into Chicago to go to Marshall Field's downtown store.

We miss you Marshall Fields!
