Posted:okay since its almost christmas and im getting stupidly excited i figured it was time for a christmas challenge.

so here it is:



my challenge to you all is to build a Calvin and Hobbes style snowmen. now i know alot of you dont have any snow at the moment so i decree they can also be made of mud biggrin

when your finished take a photo send it to my email (in my profile) and i will post it on a specially created website for all to see, and hopefully if my cousin is clever enough people should be able to vote for their favourite smile the winner gets the fantabulous title of 'king/queen of the snow people' and maybe some chocies biggrin



so off you go and create my pretties biggrin



oh and for those of you who are unsure about what the snowmen look like go here: calvin and hobbes snowmen

*runs off to make an offering to the Snow Demons, also Calvin and Hobbes style*


The optimist claims that we are living in the best of all possible worlds.
The pessimist fears this is true.

Always make time to play in the snow.

Posted:yay it's sunny today! i'm definately gonna go build some snowpeople for you!

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Posted:that is such a kewl idea!! i love ubblove calvin & hobbes' snowmen!!

one small problem for me tho...i'm in australia...queensland...we don't do snow...or ice. it even tried to rain today but failed!! and sand would be good - but i live in brisvegas...the only beach is at southbank (waay too many tourists and not actually that much sand!)...

and one more thing - i don't have a backyard so no dirt or mud!!! ubbcrying

can i make you a "snow"man out of pom poms? or maybe umm...tissues? paper? how about clothes dryer lint??? ubbloco

don't mind me - i'm a bit excitable cos i finally got my avatar to work!!! ubbrollsmile
it's a pic of me twirling on mooloolaba beach!!

Posted:Margita, how 'bout papier mach? Ice cream in a room with the airconditioning turned up really high? Or uhhhh rice that has been boiled to a pulp?

I'm going to wait around for snow for a bit before resorting to making a belly-button-fluff-man.... however i should probably already start collecting the belly button fluff in case the snow demons don't come through ubblol anyone got any good fluff to donate?
