Guest Post: Tanya Payzant - Some of my Best Friends are Flakes!

For years I found my house so empty when I took down the Christmas decorations. Then finally I got smart, and decided to use all my snowmen, snowflakes, sleds, skates, mittens, etc in my decorating for January and February. It is still winter, after all! They no longer get lost in the Christmas decor. . . they have a place of prominence in my home!! *wink* I LOVE snowmen and snowflakes and have collected some pretty cute ones over the years. Today if I drive down the street and see a leaning snowman on a front lawn, it still brings a smile to my face!

In celebration of my "flaky friends" I've been saving some cute ideas in a folder on my laptop. It's pretty obvious that I'm not the only one who thinks snowmen are so adorable. Look at these "sweet" ideas!!
