It’s Cut Out Snowflake Day!!!!!
Growing up in southern California, you don’t see a lot of snow. Neither of my parents were into outdoor sports, so that eliminated the occasional weekend ski or snowboard trips some of my friends went on. Snow was something I saw in movies or photos, not something I experienced. But I had always been fascinated with snowflakes. Most likely because in school I learned how unique and beautiful they were.
In 7th grade my parents let me go to science camp in Idlewild, California. It was on this trip that I remember my first encounter with snow. It wasn’t exactly what I had imagined, but I was transfixed. Not only was I witnessing something incredibly cool falling from the sky – a natural wonder if you will – but I could eat it, too! As an adult, I can appreciate the snow. But much like my parents, I prefer to observe it. And what better way to observe them than to cut them out of paper! We found some awesome ideas from Martha Stewart, the mother of all things crafty, and are excited to put some of these little gems up around our home and office to set the winter mood.
