McLaren shared a group of pictures of tiny snow globes that replicated different houses and wrote, “My most unhinged hobby is making snow globes of people’s homes as and giving it to them as a gift.”

Commenting on it, a Twitter user wrote, “OMG I would pay so much money for one of these though! I would get my grandmother’s old house, the one I grew up in, and give it to her as a gift now that she’s had to move into a trailer.” Another person said, “This is the BEST hobby. If you ever need a place to stay in Australia I will definitely take a snow globe as payment.”
In the comments, many people asked McLaren if he takes commissions for such snow globes. In response to these queries, he said, “Getting lots of DMS asking if I do commissions. I don’t at the moment, but will reach out to people who messaged if I do in the future. It’s time consuming + there are material costs so don’t know how monetizable it is.”
In January this year, a similar wholesome gesture by a teacher went viral. Reid Parker, a resident of Melbourne in Australia, tweeted about his son’s school teacher who turned her student’s drawings of monsters or imaginary animals into soft toys. He shared pictures of the drawings along with their quilted or knitted toy versions that were adorably accurate. The love that these tweets received prompted Parker to set up a GoFundMe page with a target of 5,000 dollars for the teacher, who wants to remain anonymous.
