Waiting for the Blizzard
So far, the blizzard hasn't amounted to much, but it's sure to fall tonight. Meanwhile I'll show you this new store activity: a paper snowflake cutting station. We have recycled butter paper, and scisssors. Anyone who comes in can take a pair and start snipping. So far some young girls cut flakes, a grandmother, a woman I don't know who was proud of her flake, and a man who hadn't made a snowflake in years and years. Elizabeth, my good friend, came in and we cut snowflakes together while we caught up on the news of our lives, occasionally pausing for the reveal of each newer, better, more pointed snowflake. I call it fun! Let the clippings fall to the floor. They look like more snow. Snow on snow on snow.

Love the Blue dipped balls; the way the dye finds its way where ever it may choose. They are lovely, soft and kind of surreal.
there really is a town called Blue Balls in PA. and i love the snowflake station - i'd have to make 2: one for you and one for me
I want to come make a snowflake. Isn't this snow great? . . . and still falling. Snow is a miracle!
nifty balls. really. neat idea.
i wanted to invite you over: my newish blog: www.velmabolyard.blogspot.com
I am going to go out and start to shovel the snowflakes--it is beautiful in Dell--going to do some skiing after that if it is not too dark--yeah winter
Velma, Thanks for the invitation! I'll be there
Barb, It's deep in Avalanche. I've shoveled my path from the house, across the creek, up to the store.
It was still pretty fluffy, but 12" deep.
Thank you. I've got some more dye projects on the burner. Once again, the project only begins when I decide to start.
That PA! They've also got Intercourse, PA, right?
& you're allowed to cut snowflakes, even in the desert
Sure, it would be fun. You'd be surprised how the time flies. Today I think snow is a heap of shovelling
What a lovely post - and your blue balls are absolutely WOW!
I want to live in a place with a special name too!
Doni, Interesting? Italy sounds quite interesting to me.
I saw your very lovely red and white felt & embroidered ornaments, which remind me of Japanese temari balls, in a Scandinavian style
