As If We Needed More Snow


“Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things,  but just look at what they can do when they stick together.”
 
Heard that quote somewhere the other day but I can’t remember where or who by… I suppose I could just Google it but I’m in the middle of baking attempt #2 and, to be totally honest, couldn’t be bothered. Anyway, I’m just stopping in quickly to share this great wee link for all those fellow procrastinators out there (let’s face it, if you’re reading this blog then you most certainly must have something better to be doing).  It’s a snowflake machine! I found it via the wonderful Black Journal last week and totally forgot about till I sat down for a cup of tea there. Give it a wee go, it’s great fun! I made loads of flakes when I first found it and copied and pasted them into Gimp to make textures and little pictures, like these three. They took about 15 minutes!  Well folks, hope you’re all having a relaxing, peaceful week. I’ll try to be back before Christmas but if not I wish you all the very merriest day!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!!! And did that baking attempt work out, I'm famished. No, not the first baking attempt, I believe that since there was a number TWO, that number one wasn't so successful. So how about number two? I'll volunteer to sample whatever it is for you. Only for you. Because I'm sitting here waiting and wondering --- did you get a new kitty for Christmas?!?! My whiskers are curling in anticipation....do tell...purrlease?!

Hi guys! Hope you all had a lovely Christmas too, I had a lovely peaceful day with my family and friends which a was pretty wonderful. And Romeo, baking attempt number two went excellently thanks for asking, but I didn't get a kitty for Christmas :( We're planning on moving house in the next few months so the plan is to wait until then. Well folks, an early happy new year to you all!
