What materials did you use? This little snow scene is of two 4 inch fiber bead dolls on ice skates in the snow, having a snowball fight. The dolls are anchored on recycled CD discs, their ice skates are old picture hangers. Each dolls starts out as a basic wire armature threaded with the fiber beads which I make and sell. Their hats and scarves are made from fiber and the buttons on the tiny outfits are tiny fiber beads. Two tiny baskets, one red plastic with a metal handle and one tiny wicker, filled with snowballs made from roving complete the scene.

What are you most proud of? I'm proud of the innovation of fiber beads, surely. I"m also quite proud and very happy to have captured the joy and madcap attitude of two youngsters at play in the snow.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Strong glue or a similar plan to anchor the dolls to your base. In this case, I used E6000 and a set of picture hangers on their feet. Patience and a wide range of fiber beads in colors and textures that reflect the theme of the piece is helpful too. Certainly this could be done in a few hours but if it takes a few days for your little ones to unfold, that's OK too. Creativity has no timeline.
