I was sent free product to participate in Welch’s Fruit Snacks Christmas Challenge!
When I was asked to participate in Welch’s Fruit Snacks Christmas Challenge, my first thought was okay I can do that, but then when I got the kit, I just sat there looking at it and wondered what in the world did I get myself into with this one. It wasn’t until last night, the night before the entry was due that it suddenly hit me.
As I was sitting there trying to figure out some creative way to decorate it while my daughter and her friend Aiden were signing cards for the troops. My eyes fell on the snowman sticker in the kit; suddenly it hit me. Why not make a Frosty inspired stocking? You see my sister Karen, was a huge Frosty the Snowman fan. I can remember how she would sit in front of the television and wait anxiously for it to come on. Why was she a big Frosty Fan? Because of this little girl pictured here.
She was so excited that a television show had a character with her name on it. In fact, when I saw that Build A Bear had the Karen character a few years, I quickly got it. It is the one-holiday decoration that doesn’t get put up after the holidays. During the year, she sits on the bookcase next to my desk and then when the holidays come around I move her to a particular place of honor. This year she sits on my table on the tray that I made next to the Christmas tree decorated with cardinals.
So back to the stocking I decided to go outside the kit to make a few adjustments. I had some feathers left from Gracie’s party, so I used those to make snow and then I added my Frosty and tons of trees. Why trees you ask because Frosty loved trees and in fact finds Santa in the woods.
And then I added it to my one of a kind stocking holder that we just recently made from the bedpost of Gracie’s bed. Pop in some Welch’s Fruit Snacks and add a cardinal and the Karen doll and the stocking was complete. So tell me what do you think of my Inspired Frosty stocking I made in memory of my sister?
