Penny had seen the Holiday Workshop show in which Becky Meverden had featured a little polymer clay snowman sitting on top of an ornament selling snow balls (tiny white pom-poms) and thought it was so adorable that she had to try her hand at making some of the snowmen. She ended up having them everywhere doing everything. One was clutching a small candy cane, another sitting on a pine cone, a third holding a strand of miniature Christmas lights, etc. They were delightful. Penny wrote, "Here it is late June and I'm wrapping Christmas presents...snowmen for everyone!" Penny's snowmen looked almost exactly like Becky's. She would have been proud.
