Mia and I cut paper snowflakes every year before the holidays and these are this year’s additions to the ones we made last year. In a few years we might have enough to paper the entire apartment with snowflakes! Hope everyone is having a happy holiday. It’s fairly mellow and quiet at my parents’ house. I think the day is even bordering on “boring”!

    melissa, are you guys back? did you go away?
    These snowflakes were made the old fashioned way – fold paper multiples times, trim the edges curved to make a circle, and then cut away. It’s fun because you never know how they will turn out until the big reveal when you unfold them.

    I forgot all about paper snowflakes. I used to love making them when I was a kid.

    Hope you had a happy Christmas.

    you’ll have to demonstrate sometime.
    we’re back and trying to unpack, make room for the new and donate the not so new.
    hope to see you all soon. (maybe for dim sum – toms recommendation is Pings)
    oh, yes, and welcome to the iphone club. sounds like a nice christmas.

    Those are lovely. I should start a tradition like that with my own kids. I bet your apartment will look very festive if you ever get to cover the walls.
