All work and no play

You know what they say about all work and no play. If it makes Jack a dull boy I'm sure that it would have the same effect on us girls as well. Not being the type to take risks I took a little break while at work the other day and did some playing.
One of the girls I was working with knocked a couple bowls off the table and they landed on the floor behind me. I turned around and they were laying there right next to each other and I made the comment that they looked like a snowman. Karleen pointed out that it needed a head so she grabbed another bowl and laid it on the floor. Then he needed some arms so I grabbed a couple pieces from the rotisserie. No self respecting snowman would be caught without a hat so we added a colander. Of course the weather outside is frightful so he also needed a scarf. We grabbed one of the rags off the sink and he was properly attired. Something was missing though. Oh I know, head to the salad case and grab him a nose. I know snowmen usually have a carrot nose but this is no ordinary snowman so he shall have a jalapeno pepper nose.
I guess I'm safe from dullness for another day.

Oh my gosh, this is too cute!!!! He is rather rakish and stylish looking! I think all the snowwomen will be after him for the cool blue hat with the head ventilation!

That was a great snowman. Of course no one but you would have dreamed up the idea. You are very creative. Thanks for the laugh.

LOL at Sandee and her remark. Ann, I swear I think you could take anything and turn it into something fun and interesting!

I am going to check into some of these craft projects you do. I would love to learn how to do some of them for Christmas present for the kids and grandchildren next year.

Yes, probably another expensive habit I will obtain!!

Hope you have a great Sunday!
Jackie:-)

That is hysterical Ann but oh so clever. Great snow man especially the nose. That is just terrific. Good thing you have such an artist's eye. Who else would have thought of a snowman in pans. Take care and have a great evening.
