    I just finished these two snowman ornaments for my grand kids to hang on their tree this Christmas. I believe the pattern appeared in WCI awhile back. I apologize, but I don't remember what issue or who the designer was.

    Finally got all the pieces painted and the paint table cleared. This is the last of the series of wizards I carved based on Bob K's design. Now Tom you can see what the little twirly thingy is for. Hope you like him. Critique away.

    Hey Bob, we would like to include WCI in the ornament exchange again this year, if it's ok with you. Please send me the address you want them sent to.
