Need a fun gift for the holidays, birthday, dorm or office gift?  Indoor snowballs are fun for all ages.  People can't resist throwing them at each other.

As many of you know our family is in a really tight spot financially.  I'm NOT asking for your sympathy or a hand out and don't mean to offend anyone with this post, but if you would please take a minute and read this I'd appreciate it.
Earl is working 60-70 hours a week and since we don't have a car he's been walking 6 miles each way to and from work, he is fortunate enough to catch rides some day and we are grateful for that.  We've been really struggling for about 5 years now, BUT we are beginning to see some light at the end of the tunnel.   Of course every time we seem to take a step or two forward we seem to get knocked back five or six steps....such is life, but we do try to make the best of it.

Anyway, I stay at home so I can be here with my kids and I try to make extra money by sewing.  We REALLY need to earn more than we are making so we can get a car before winter and still pay our bills.  I would like to help out more and ......SO.......with some encouragement from a friend this is what I am proposing.

I am taking orders on these handmade, fun, and quality "Indoor Snowballs" and hoping that some of my Facebook friends will help us out and support us with your shopping needs.   If your not interested in purchasing any snowballs could you please share this post on your page so others will see it.

Here's what you'll be getting:  A Baker's Dozen of the Indoor Snowballs and a nice cloth drawstring bag to put them in all handmade by me all for $25.00 and that includes shipping.   The fabric on the bags will vary depending on what kind of "snowy" fabric I can find, but I can send you a photo of the completed bag before mailing to make sure it's okay with you.  If you would like a smaller set I can do 6 snowballs and a bag for $12.50 including shipping.   It takes me a few days to make them since it's all done by hand.


Each snowball comes with a handstitched face (they all vary....I just go with the flow when I'm stitching them) and a felt nose that is hand sewn on.  The cheeks are acyrlic paint.

Snowballs are made out of Cotton Flannel fabric, Stuffed with polyster fiberfill, Machine washable and dryer safe.  The snowball are sturdy (they won't melt no matter what the weather temp. is!)

I want to thank you in advance and so do Earl's feet!
