Well only 16 days to go to CHRISTMAS, I decided I needed a rest and maybe so did you after all the "doors" you opened so why not find a place to sit down? Like all amusement parks SANTA'S NORTH POLE VILLAGE has its own! I loved designing a new snowman an addition of a mushroom has been done but not photographed, I forgot to yesterday! Why a mushroom? In about 80% of all the SANTA VILLAGES I saw while doing research had mushrooms and some were even shaped as seats! So like the signature Wreaths and holly I added mushrooms! I enjoyed doing the snowman, LEGO was my inspiration since in every ADVENT CALENDAR they designed a new one why not add yet another version? I didn't want a broom as his arms so I used the twigs (brown carrot tops) as they did in a few of their own. I am working on giving him roundness so stay tuned! You'll notice he's having a gingerbread cookie bought from the Gingerbread Bakery and a mug of hot chocolate he got from the Hot Chocolate Stand! He'll need to rest he has to pick up his son from the SANTA'S SLED RIDE find his wife in the gift shop and go visit SANTA'S HOUSE! (He hopes he's on the Nice list.) You will notice every time I use a tree it's a winter tree with a touch of "now" on it's branches! And keeping unified each Park Bench is RED! By the way another inspiration came from my visit to DISNEY WORLD'S Disney Studios as you'll see in the last two pictures I shared with you - a snowman and me on the bench! Yes, I am a "big" person! if I played SANTA (my patron-hey I am a Nicholas!) I'd need no padding! LOL!
