December 15

Good morning, it's Valerie one more day today and then it's behind the scenes for the helper-elf.  I may not speak with you all one-on-one again so I wanted to wish everyone a joyous Christmas and a happy and serene and blessed New Year!  I wanted to thank Krissy for allowing me to post the past three days.  It has been a true honor!  Thanks, Krissy!  Now on to a fun, fun day!...


Today we are going to play in the snow!! 

 Virtual online snowflake making site
Click this link to Popular Front: Snow Days!

I have spent many hours of snowflake making fun on this site!  I have seen many beautiful, creative and incredible flakes on this site and wondered how in the world they were created!!  I have found out that there are tutorials on the web for this very site!  There are those out there much more of a fan of this site than I am!!

 Flake School Flake school takesyou from beginning to grand master.  Good luck!

If you would like to use my flakes for your use feel free to "Copy as" and save.   If you make any flakes and share them in your journal, please share your entry URL with us in the comments section.  To capture a screen shot of your flake press Print Screen + Ctrl and then open an email and press paste in the email.  The flake should appear in your email.  It is rather small.  You will want to resize it.  If you have any questions feel free to email me at  Have fun!

  1. Valerie, you neglected to mention that EVERY snowflake that people see in this entry, YOU made!  My sister is SO talented everyone!  I can't believe the snowflakes she makes!  She can make them with faces on them, and she can make them with Christmas trees (like the one you see in this entry).  She is fantastic!  Don't get discouraged you all, if you can't make them like this at first, just make basic ones, and work your way up.  Or just make basic ones.  Have fun!  This site is a blast!  And remember, for every flake you make, they give a donation to the Salvation Army!

    Love, Krissy
