I Love Snow Blog Hop

Welcome to the Snow Blog Hop. I want to Thank Lisa for letting me be a participant on this wonderful hop. It comes at a great time.  Personally, I am starting to enjoy snow again.  I think when you outgrow snow pants, the excitement of snow wears off.  I like snow on Christmas Eve and that used to be about it.  Now with the fun that my little ones have, we are "snow people."

I chose to make a glass block project with a very popular "snow" activity.  My kids LOVE building snowman and it is always a contest to see who can make their snowman look the chubbiest!

Here is the blog line-up in case you get lost...Be sure to check out all participants projects.  They are beautiful and you may get some last minute gift ideas!

Here is my project!
 I chose to make a small & large glass block using the same image.
 The lights are 20 count lights and the image is from A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge. 
 The ribbon is from Celebrate It and is 1 1/2" wired edged ribbon.

 The ribbon for the large glass block is by Holiday Time and is 2" wired edge ribbon. I used a 30 count set of lights.

Materials Used:
*Small & Large glass blocks
*A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge by Provocraft (p. 55) small snowman cut at 4", large at 5"
*Red ribbon by Celebrate It 1 1/2" wired Edge
*Blue Ribbon by Holiday Time 2" Wired Edge
*20 and 30 count white lights
