My friend amber can do anything! She has 3 small kids, her husband is deployed and she still whipped out hundreds...I don't know...150 or more Christmas cards with homemade crocheted snowflakes on them. My card was just beautiful. Amber also made some extras for me to use as ornaments...I {heart} them very much and will every winter. I have this tree and snowkids displayed by my front door for our very wintry January.

Atlanta is FROZEN right now. We are expecting the temps in the teens for another week and snow is on the way. N. Atlanta schools are already letting out at noon tomorrow. I don't like it...I have lived in cold weather places...Washington State to name one, that is where I met Amber, so it's fitting she gave me snowflakes.

Happy New Year!!

The snowflakes are so pretty!! I can't imagine how long it took her to make all of those for her cards. She must have a lot of patience:)

This cold front is horrible, isn't it? I hope we get a warm up real soon.

Yes, the cold is old, and I hope they are wrong about your temps being in the teens, as they are about ours being there this weekend. BUT, I will take the snow flurries from you in heart beat! I like your crocheted flakes - so cute and good for all winter!

They look so pretty on your tree! I might have to make a set for me now...

Do you want me to punch out some jumbo snowflakes for you until you find a punch of your own?? Let me know. I'd be happy to.

Bundle up and drink lots of hot chocolate!!

Those are so cute! They look great on your tree! It is so cold snowy and icy here too. I'm staying inside all day because the high is 8! :)
