I entered my "Cut Paper Snowflakes" design in this week's Spoonflower "Papercut Napkins" Design Challenge (you can see how I created it in the photos below)! I thought maybe snowflakes weren't the best theme for this time of year, but then I noticed a couple of stories in our local paper...
The Rapid Relief Fund which was created to help local people in need in this time of crisis, has gotten a boost from the Times Colonist (our local newspaper) Christmas Fund which is donating $100000 to match and encourage other donations. For the first time in history, the Christmas Fund is being put to work in the Spring.
And a local woman has suggested we all turn on our Christmas lights to show thanks to our front-line health-care and other public workers.
So, I guess...Christmas snowflakes in Spring? Why not?! You can check out the Voting Page to see all the entries!
Remember all those snowflakes you made as a kid (or with your kids) by folding paper, cutting out bits, then opening up the paper and voila! snowflakes! Then you taped them to your windows! I made a whole bunch of paper snowflakes that way (from used post-it notes, good reuse!) then turned them into this new winter-themed pattern in nice cozy colours! Does it bring back memories for you?!
