A Snowman Makeover

I'm happy to report that my case of the BLAHs is starting to pass.  Around 6ish tonight I got my urge to craft back ....whoo hoo! Now hopefully it lasts into tomorrow -I need to finish the projects I started today! lol

Here's the only one I DID finish today ~ (I had major OCD with this!)

I know you are thinking the title of this post is a little out of season, right?!? A snowman makeover?!? It's April!! Right?!?! Well I have a huge collection of snowmen & not such a big house so I decided it was time to part with one of them.  Now I've been wanting a prim angel for my garden for awhile but I haven't found one I like or one I could afford so here's what I came up with.

before - cute but didn't LOVE him (my lil sis found him in the trash for me lol)


 I'm so excited! Her hair is rungs from a lil ladder I had lying around that was falling apart.  Her wings are a piece from an old dresser that I've been saving for just the right project & her nose is a piece off of the perpetual calendar I redid! Thank goodness I'm a wood hoarder & had the stuff laying around!

I just LOVE how it turned out! Now all I need to do is seal her up & she'll be ready for the yard!

I hope everyone has a great Thursday!
