Giveaway!

Most of you know that my husband enjoys carving. Earlier this year, Rebekah said I should ask Bob to do a carving for a giveaway. She even said she thought a snowman would be good! When I told him this, he agreed to do a carving for my blog readers. He has always been a fan of the comic strip "Calvin and Hobbes" and he carved a snowman that is a take on the crazy snowmen Calvin used to make. He is about 5 and 1/2 inches tall. Here he is:
This snowman got a little hungry and decided to take a chomp on his nose! You can't see it on this picture, but there is even a bit of carrot in his mouth.

I will be drawing the winner next Sunday evening by using the random number selector and the winner will be posted on Monday, December 1st. Anyone (may be from outside the US) is eligible to win. All you have to do is leave a comment. If you don't have a blog, make sure you leave a way that I can contact you.

I can't even think of words to describe his talent so I'm going to use a cute quote from the movie "Kung Fu Panda" --

"I'm blinded by your awesomeness!"

Mary said...

The snowman is delightful. Your hubby has a talent. Please send this guy to live at my house. lol

Thank you also for the kind and loving comments on Aunt May's final journey and her passing. Your love, support and friendship is appreciated more than you know.

Kathy said...

My 11 year old is a Calvin and Hobbes book collector. He loves, loves, loves him - if you look on my blog - you'll see where I posted a pic of the snowman - it was hilarious. I am a snowman collector during the holidays so I love the idea of having a Calvin snowman. :)
