missing the snow and snowflakes back in wyoming...
not to mention aLL of our christmas things...
we decided to add a little handmade fun to our space. 

i lOve the look of delicate white paper flakes...
i think this time we were just in the mood for something a lil bit different.
for the fun of it.
why not.

we folded & cut oodles!
sipped on cider... cocoa... and listened to our fave christmas tunes.
i tell ya... faith hill singing little drummer boy... lOvE! 

campbell loved her heart design.
me too!

snowflakes aRe such an amazing thing.
their crazy beauty.
their totally unique qualities.
it was such a treat to get to "live" where snow actually falls... lots of it.
i found myself in awe... many times... as i looked at them ever so closely.
oh i looked.
i could sit there... let them fall on my clothes... and inspect them for hours.
they were all sO different... every single one.
all so special!
they never ceased to surprise & amaze me.

though our flakes aren't near as beautiful...
we think they're pretty fun.
plus we're liking the pop they give to that lovely (insert sarcasm) blank brown wall.

with mess already in full swing... we ran and grabbed the glitter!
i think we'll be eAtiNg glitter for the next month... but.. it's worth it!

so thankful for those little pockets of creative time together.
with the current pace being so hustle & bustle...
it was good to just stOp... and play!
