Name snowflakes

One of my favorite winter traditions is the name snowflake.  When I was a child, my siblings and I were cutting paper snowflakes with my dad.  He announced that he was bored, and got out a pencil and xacto knife.  We didn't now what he was doing until he was done, but he had written his name on the folded, but uncut, snowflake and cut it out.  The pattern was beautiful, and soon we were all doing it (of course, he didn't let us all use the xacto knife, lol).
So, to all my angel mommy friends: If you would like me to cut a snowflake of your angel's name(s), please let me know in a comment. I can't promise to send them to you, but I will get you as good a picture as I can.  I'm also going to hang them up on my windows (if I don't send them to you).

Love and hugs to you all.


  1. Brittanie, you have such a loving heart. Would make one for Elijah? and since I'm so far away, would it be ok to hang in your window? Thank you so much! Pamela By the way, this is my first ever blog comment.

  2. What a wonderful idea!! I think I might have to do this with my kiddos
