Need a Snow Day?

It snowed Wednesday night, and we woke up to a white world yesterday morning. There really wasn't much accumulation, just enough to make things pretty. However, there was an icy layer underneath so it wasn't much fun to walk in. I took my camera out for my walk and got a few pictures, but my fingers were freezing and I had to walk very carefully to avoid falling on my butt, so I came back early. I had plenty of cooking to do, anyway.

Need a Snow Day?I was just going through my email and found a folder I had forgotten. It reminded me of this fun site where you can catch some snowflakes and create your own. To catch one, just mouse over one that you like, and it will stop and zoom in so you can see it. To create your own, just click where it says 'Create our own Snowflake' and follow the instructions. It's easy, and if you mess up, you can undo it back as many steps as you need, or reset the whole thing and start over again. Once you're happy with it, you can save it, send it to your friends, and print it. When other people catch your snowflake, they can respond to it and send you a message. This is so much fun! You just have to try it.

I really can't 'cut' straight, but here's my first snowflake of the winter. I'm sure I'll be making more, and when I remind Cory of this site, he'll be doing it, too. He's really good at it.


  1. I'm going to check that out, it sounds neat.

    Thanks for visiting me...I've read a few of your last entries, and will be back to read more!

  2. I live in Canada so the kids usually have half a dozen snow days a year. That sounds like a fun craft. I'll have to check it out and get the kids to make some.

  3. jenn - I've enjoyed your blog, too. I'll be back!

    tammy - We used to have more snow days when I was growing up. I know we did. Now, if the kids have a snow day, they have to make it up at the end of the school year. We live in Wisconsin. You'd think they'd plan for snow days.

    Both of you let me know what you think of the snowflakes. I think they're addictive!

  4. I will check it out and make some snowflakes of my own.
    Wish it would snow here...nothing yet!
