I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new.

I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

Frosty’s puttin’ on the ritz!

While we all know that you need a hat to be truly elegant, nobody knows this better than Frosty. After all, it’s probably the most iconic image, a snowman in a chimney sweep’s top hat jauntily perched upon his bean. However, hats come in all sorts of options, and here are some ideas for a snowman in a hat that pay homage to that traditional trope, yet are their own, modern take. Therefore, these cute winter decorations will be an ideal way to decorate your modern home with a touch of updated tradition. Moreover, they’ll make great stocking stuffers or add-ons for presents at work or at the club.
