*Rustic Snowflakes*

Our snow day has sadly come to an end. The sun has settled and the only place to be now is inside.


I am inside with:

- Adam snuggled next to me
-Colden asleep on his bed
-a good movie
-a hot cup of hazelnut coffee
-my warm, fleece pajamas
-my slippers
- (saved the best for last) an electric blanket


Life is good.

I thought tonight would be the absolute perfect time--since the snow and all :)--to share another craft I completed this week. The end goal I had in mind was to simply make rustic looking snowflake ornaments for our tree. Adam had his own thought after seeing my finished flakes.

Here they are:


Adam decided they would "make incredible wall art" and even suggested where I hang them in the house. Ladies, I have a man who even decorates, I know I know...he's a true stud. Pictures coming soon of Adam's ideal spot for these rustic snowflakes and possibly a quick little tutorial on how to make your very own (great gift idea)!

Have a wonderful night everyone :)

  21. Aww, these look adorable. I think I could make them this year and hang them around the house. I have a thing for snowflakes but run out of ideas so thanks for sharing. I think that they will look good even if I add a few brighter colous and glittery buttons.
