    Merry Christmas From Big Snowmy Kromer

    Merry Christmas from Big Snowmy Kromer! Who or what is a Snowmy Kromer you may ask? Snowmy Kromer The Snowman Snowmy Kromer just happens to be a 30 foot tall snowman.

Love how the centers have the 3d affect from the December Wisconsin Snowflakes. What I Use…

    Happy Smoked Turkey Day From Wisconsin!
