Goodwill toward Snowmen

When I was at my local post office earlier (shipping more books!) I overheard a woman & the very pleasant postman talking about stamps for her Christmas cards.  As it is really getting to be the time for that I decided to share with you these fun holiday cards that one of the other fabulistas makes.  Last year I admired some that she had done, and those were on a nice natural background of a cardboardy color, and I wanna say she did some on a cheery red backing as well.  We can certainly find out specifics if need be.

I could say more about this fabulista, but she has her own blog & I don't want to steal all her material.  What I will tell you is that she holds the distinction of being:
1)  The only person I have ever heard of who's been struck in the face by a live fish.  (It had leapt out of the ocean & her face just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.)
2)  She owned the shiniest vehicle that I have ever seen.
And my friend, Steve, once saw a dolphin jump right over her head.  In short, you just cannot buy holiday cards from anyone else with these qualifications.

Plus, look at how cute they are!  Wee Snowpeople!!!!  (well, one snow, one sand- but both wee!)

The cards are sold individually at $4 a piece, or in a pack of 10 for $25.  Each card is made with an actual photograph.  You can buy them from her Etsy shop:
Or she says better to contact her directly by email or to go to her photography blog:

With that Sandy the Snowman card I'd be tempted to go with a greeting of either Mele Kalikimaka or I hope Sandy Clause brings you everything you asked for this year.  tee hee.

As for Marty the Littlest Snowman, she showed me a video her sister took the day they made Marty.  If only these cards could be made into the musical type of card- it would be worth any amount of money to hear those two giggling & carrying on about their little snowman!  Holiday cheer indeed!


  1. I remember watching Sandy transform from those amazing little sand balls- only Jane can make perfect. Three sand balls then became three stacked sandballs with a touch of seaweed for the scarf, a shell for a hat and driftwood for arms. Voila- Sandy! a.k.a. Skipper. Brilliant. I agree, they are the best Holiday cards ever! Thanks for posting...
