Yes, it is a real snowman!  The weather was beautiful today in our cold northern climate and the snow was sticky enough that we could roll ourselves a snowman.  My daughter and I had a lot of fun making this frozen fellow with two eyes made out of coal.  If the weather holds out maybe we can build a snow fort in the next couple of days.

I had a little time off over the Christmas Holiday and when I had spare moments I used them to do a bit of reading on XHTML and CSS. My plan is that by the end of March I can create a new look for One of the books that helped me learn the most was Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML, I like the learning style of the Head First books and I definitely recommend reading this one especially to beginners. Now, the real test for me and the book is whether or not I can build a better looking website by the end of March. Only time will tell.

Learn to Carve Wood

One of the coolest gifts I received for Christmas this year was a misshapen lump of wood, a profiled lump of basswood to be more precise. What, you may ask would I do with this lump of wood? Carve it into an overweight man wearing a hat of course. I have never carved before and this is going to be my chance to learn. The wood came with a book about carving called Art & Technique of Scandinavian Style Woodcarving. As soon as I finish the carving project I will post some pictures.

The previous posting was about making a fleece pillow with a snowman theme, this posting is just to display a fleece blanket that my sister made for my daughter. It turned out great, and it is a much more sentimental gift when you know how much time and effort went into making it.Fleece Blanket
