A Snowman and Steel Table

While we were in Wyoming for Thanksgiving we took many Christmas gifts with us and got one in return.  Sure saves on shipping!  Our youngest son is very handy with a plasma cutter (a cutting torch for steel) and welder.  He made us, his sister, his in-laws, and his girlfriend these cool steel tables!

This stands about 2 1/2' high.  The support and feet are made from some 100 year old rebar (used to reinforce concrete).

I'm so loving this table and his great workmanship!  He's SO clever (of course I'm biased!)!

I'm already using the table.  It had to be brought home sitting upside down on the back seat of the car.  I used the seat belt to be sure it didn't move around in case of sharp turns or fast stops.

This is a card from a friend, Shirley Hotop, in the Technique Junkies swap group.  I was so impressed that I just had to share it with you!  Lots of bling!

The trees are stamped, colored, then Stickled!  The blue snowflakes on the base are very glittery, too!  I love this card!!  Click on the photos and get a larger look.  She colored with Copic markers.

OH - first of all love the table - what talent - and so many uses. And the snowman card did photograph well - this is a fun one to make regardless of the occasion. I have used this design for birthday, a teen, and now Christmas.
