Imagine! I’m just not in a birthy place these days. I’m hanging on by a thread, actually. I have a full time job, four young children, a husband who’s working two jobs, and have been sick for over a month! So, reproduction . . . and all that involves is on the back burner . . . the very far back burner of a very large hot untouchable stove . . .
I am a ball of stress, so I’m thankful for a few moments of deconstress (LoL!) time. I’m just about as addicted to Pinterest as I am to Facebook. So, I’ve been pinning all sorts of things. Here’s a link to my HBA2C board, for instance. The holidays make me feel very crafty, but of course, I’m having to prioritize my crafts. That means putting away the more complicated projects, and focusing on a few that give me a lot of bang for the time buck. My oldest daughter and I are enjoying making snowflakes today. Great stress buster, actually! You can HARDLY screw these up.
Here are a few links to get you started:
Here’s How About Orange’s 8-point flake:
And here’s my simplified “take” on it:
To do this I followed Bon Temps’s folding instructions and eye-balled Orange’s template. Really, it’s not that hard to do, and my 6 year old is having fun making her own snowflakes her own way! And my 4 month old is just hanging out watching Mommy and Big Sis. (She’s such a love!!)
Blessings this holiday season!!
