So much to say and I have so many pictures of people's generosity to post over the next week or two. Today, I am starting with these Snowflakes. 'Tis the Season! (unfortunately) If my yard were covered with THESE babies, I would not mind. But it is covered with 6" of the real stuff. Or maybe 8". Or maybe more. Whatever it is, it has crippled me and I am ready to hibernate.
These little Beauties were made possible by Karen Williams of Baublicious and Skunk Hill Studio Fame. She had a giveaway of these snowflake kits and I won! Yay!!! They can be found in her Etsy Shop. Go get a kit! Send a kit to a friend! The price is right, the instructions are perfectly clear. They are super easy to follow. I even sipped on Port while following them. The rhythm of making the snowflakes is really soothing. And...it is still snowflake season for another 3-6 months. I gifted these to The Bug and Sunshine Girl as their Ornament of the Year. They were really excited, assured me they would NOT be packed away with the rest of the ornaments, and asked to learn how to make them. Sounds like a good winter activity to me~cocoa, cookies, and beaded snowflakes...ahhhhhh.......
Thank You Karen!
So many other goodies to show, but those will have to wait until Monday. For now, my pick for the She Made~She Made.
Come back January 30th and see what Therese and I made with these beauties! Therese gave me the Red Blister Pearls. I gave her these vintage beads I picked up at Nawbin Beads in Traverse City, Michigan this past summer. There was no further description other than "vintage beads". The design was too lovely to pass up.
Thanks so much for stopping in. Hope it is warmer and less snowy by you!
