25 Days Of Maple Hoo Christmas: Day 8

Our felt sequined Santa and Frosty, made by Boomer some time in the ’70s, got their IPB Living close-up.

    Those are absolutely adorable. Tell Boomer I love the embroidery on the snowman’s face!

    Santa looks quite dashing and Frosty looks a little mischievous in their IPB Living close-ups. Were they available for interviews or was it strictly a photo shoot?

  3. They haven’t gotten full media training yet. For the most part they stick to the “take it one Christmas at a time” but we’re never sure when they might pull out a “sloppy seconds” and get suspended for 6 nights of Christmas, you know?

  4. I concur on the snowman’s face. Adorable!

    Well as long as they “give it 110%” for the full month of December I guess I’ll let it go. I mean, they only really get riled up at this time of year. I’ve never seen two ’70s felt, sequined seasonal characters disappear into the woodwork for the rest of year. I know they are healthy scratches.

  6. Wow! Go Boomer! Those are awesome.

  7. Boomer says thanks for all the praise! And she’s blushing. For reals. :D

    HG, these two characters traditionally overstay their welcome. I mean, they bring a lot to the table (or mantle?) right off the bat, but after about a month, their production drops off a cliff. We can’t help but healthy scratch them.

    I just don’t get how they can’t be consistent and produce for the other 11 months of the game. Is it too much pressure? Should they be thinking about retirement? I don’t know who would pick them up off waivers.

  9. I just don’t get how they can’t be consistent and produce for the other 11 months of the game.

    It really is a mystery. Especially for the snowman. Maybe I can understand Santa petering out (he is from somewhere near Europe, right? And aren’t Europeans supposed to be soft? :P), but Frosty? Can’t he hang on at least for a few more months? I guess neither one of them is really ready for the big leagues.
