Evolution of the Snowman series

What started off as one snowman turned into a creative 
digital series of fun over the season! All of these have 
been posted on my instagram but I thought it might
 be nice to share them on my blog!
Guilty Snow woman...." No I did not steal a shortbread before dinner."
I always admire the artists who can stick to a myriad of
 similar characters to express their creativity! 
Those such as Tascha,
Or Will Charlesworth of Inquisitive Cows 
Or Annie Bellamy   
and Leekrek
They  tend to keep to a theme while I am all over the place!
" The Cleaning lady" melts at the mere mention of work!
 One dear snowman led into another as I sat watching
 Christmas movies and doodling on my 
sketchbook express app. The day after 
I dyed my hair I looked in the mirror, startled at how 
dark my hair was. It's the same colour I've used 
for years, but  it needed a few more washes
 to fade!
That moment you look in the mirror and realize you dyed your hair too dark!
A few distressing things happened over Christmas that 
will eventually end up as blog post, and  this 
snowwoman felt she needed to do a little whining  wining....
Wining.... didn't have one but sure felt like having one!!

 Even though Cupcake kept the cookie baking to a minimal
they seemed to be calling my name....or should I say following 
me around... at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it!!
Which led to the " stalker cookie" following the snowman!! 

Cookie stalker! Ever have cookies following you around?  Yeah me too...
After a loud Family dinner full of frenetic nonsense
with the ting of wine glasses breaking every half hour
my energy was depleted!! That's how this 
dear snowlady was born!!
Energy Robber....hands up robbed of Christmas energy!
After receiving unfavorable news a few days 
before Christmas Cupcake  accidentally wore  
her skirt to work inside out! Since it was so
busy she didn't notice it for quite sometime!!
Busy day at work with your skirt inside out!!
Bulky the snowman was pretty much how I 
felt after three different turkey dinners and 
too much junk!
Feeling bulkier than normal after Christmas! Hmm wonder why?
Beardo and Cupcakes Christmas card
Christmas was so odd this year...really really odd.
I will say I'm so glad we put up our decorations
early and enjoyed the spirit  in November and 
the beginning of December...
because I am still processing 
and perplexed by the
last two weeks!
So onward and upward into next year!

My heart is with those struggling hoping 
their New Year is filled with more
 happy moments than sad! My last
Snow woman of the season!
 Happy New Year one and all! Thank you
 for all your support this past year!
 I leave you with this link to a very funny
comedy sketch done by my dear friends
significant others talented daughter!
It brought me some much needed giggles
when they were most needed!
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!
Alike Cameron comedy Sketch!

Hi Giggles, I am sorry that the past few weeks were not as they should be but they definitely led to a wonderful snowman series. I have to say each and everyone are a favorite of mine. I

I totally know how it feels to have that cookie following you around. Thankfully, the last one left the house yesterday.

I hope that this next year will be filled with only good things for you and Cupcake and Beardo. Happy New Year to someone I have never met but consider a special friend.

What a fun post! Happy PPF and a Happy New Year, hugs, Valerie

Renee Dowling said...

Your captions under your whimsical snowmen/snowwomen are hilarious! LOL! I feel like the bulky snowwoman too! Yes, I admit, cookies have followed me around, along with tarts, candy and salty treats. Oh, my!

The comedy sketch was awesome!

Thanks for sharing!

May your year be filled with art!


Renee Dowling said...

Your captions are so hilarious for each snowman/woman! LOL!

I have to admit that I also feel like the bulky snow woman and yes, I have had cookies follow me around...tarts, candy and even salty snacks! Oh, my!

The comedy sketch was very well done and FUNNY!

I hope your year is filled with delight, happiness, great health, love and of course, ART!

I so much love your snowman "series" with the amusing captions.
Cookie stalker - yes there is one cookie calling my name right now! - wait a minute.................yum..................
Love the Guilty Snowwoman's hat and buttons,
love "Energy Robber" - oh yes! - love her antlers,
and Mr. Bulky is not too bulky, not compared to some people here, haha!
These are all great, what a marvellous children's book they would make, you could almost get it published just like it is, so much fun.
Happy 2016, Giggles!

Such fun snowmen, Happy New Year.

You gave me a big good smile, thanks:)
Wishing you and yours much love and
joy ♥

Toni said...

Love your stories and your art. I hope your struggles resolve and happiness fills your new year.

Irene Rafael said...

Happy new year dearest giggles. I, like you, do not stick with a theme. I like it that way but do admire those who focus on one subject. I have to come to accept this about myself most of the time. This month i am painting 30 paintings. I thought a theme might be a good idea. I chose expressing the wildness within because it leaves a lot of room for interpretation. hahaha i guess i don't like being pinned down.

Helen Campbell said...

Your snowman series is adorable! Happy New Year to you!

Beth Niquette said...

You are so dear. ((hugs)) Your transparency is precious. I adore your snowmen, sweet Friend--and that cute little critter, too. Happy New year, dear Giggles. May God bless your new year with unexpected joy.

Linda Kunsman said...

Silke Powers said...

Hi Giggles! I hope all is well with you and your family!! I'm sorry you had a stressful two weeks around the holidays. That's hard! Your snowmen are wonderful. I'm with you - I'm all over the place and just when I settle into something of a theme, I hear something new calling my name... Here's to a wonderful 2016 for you and yours! xoxo Silke

Cindy D. said...

A very cute series of fun and silly snowpeople! Adorable dog in hat, too! I am sorry to hear you had some strange times, but I hope your 2016 holds lots more good than not. :)

June Walker said...

Happy new year! I love your fun series of snow characters..especially the one with antlers. Wishing you a wonderful creative 2016!!!

Neesie said...

Oh Giggles your snow people are adorable, with all of their different characters coming through. If it's any consolation I'm always all over the place with my art too. I just wish I could find something and stick with it for a series.
Maybe 2016 will be the year? I'm sorry that you have had a stressful time... I think this time of year can really highlight problems. I wish you nothing but the best for this coming New Year with lots of creativity thrown in.

Studio Kaufmann said...

What a cheery series of snowmen and snowwomen.
Alas no snow here....just boiling hot Christmas and rain.
May you have a very happy and creative 2016 xx

Janet said...

Your snowman series is so cute! I was in a bah, humbug mood again this year...too much commercialism for me. But I did manage to have a great Christmas...but I ate too much, too. It's just part of the celebrating.

denthe said...

I love how you illustrated all of your experiences into drawings of snow(wo)men. Great way to look back on it. I do hope all is sorted out now and the stress of the last 2 weeks is gone. Have a happy year dear Sherrie, and keep those characters of you coming!

Indira said...

Wishing you the best of everything in 2016. The collection of clown sketches is awesome.
