holiday greetings!

We have been away from the office for a few weeks. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.

We were blessed with a lot of snow on Christmas. I love the snow! I love the beautiful snowflakes, each one a tiny miracle with no two alike! This alone causes awe, wonder and amazement at God's glorious creations.
My mother taught me to cut-out snowflakes when I was very young. We cut-out snowflakes each year and each year my snowflake designs were increasing in beauty until I have surpassed her beautiful designs with my own beautiful and intricate designs.
Did I mention that I love snowflakes! I have been inspired by Wilson A. Bentley's life and work. I would check-out his book 'Snow Crystals' from the library often to view the beautiful snow crystals. 'Snowflake Bentley' is a charming children's book about his life.
My husband, knowing my love of snowflakes, gave me "The Little Book of Snowflakes" and 'The Magic of Snowflakes' by Kenneth Libbrecht for my birthday a few years ago. The pictures are amazing!

I love snowflakes, but you have certainly taken it to a professional level. I love how you cut out your snowflakes. Talk about detail....Wow!
