Hopefully Cathy is too busy to read my blog before I get this snow globe to her! She will be surprised to learn she gave me the supplies for her Christmas present. LOL.
Earlier this fall she gave me a bag full of do it yourself snow globes she purchased at a clearance sale for a ridiculously low price. She had planned to make a snow globe of her and her hubby but never got around to it. She was hoping I could think of an idea to use them up.
So I made up a bunch of mermaid themed snow globes for my “Merry Mermaid” featured artist showing earlier this month and they looked so cute in the display Cathy set up in the window.
I giggled to myself when I had the idea to reserve one of the snow globes to fulfill Cathy’s original idea and I was really inspired to personalize it.
A few years ago Cathy was commissioned to make this large Nutcracker Mosaic to be featured at the Providence Hospital Festival of Trees. Isn’t it absolutely gorgeous???? I found the image when I Googled “Festival of Trees” and printed it out to the size of the snow globe insert.
Then I had fun finding of photo of Cathy and Ray and photo shopping in a cat similar in appearance of Joni their cat. I used a transparent background png. clip art Santa hat to photo shop onto each of their cute little heads!
Let it snow!
Now Cathy can have a little remembrance of her Nutcracker Mosaic. Thanks Cathy for the supplies for this project. LOL!
