Snowflakes

We had the first snow yesterday. My kids were so excited. They brought out construction paper outside for the snowflakes to fall on, and then look at them through a magnifying glass. It did not work out very well, they did not see the magic shapes (I guess this magnifying glass was rubbish), they did not see that the beauty was outside, and went back to play video games... (Well, not really, that was just for the story, but they would have if I had let them !)
No, instead, we went in the basement and made pretend food in playdough. I am pretty good at that :) and was even more excited than the kids : I made veggie lasagna, a cheese pizza, a hot dog with all the stuff inside, spaghettis meat ball... You would think I had better things to do than that ? In fact, not really. Playing with my kids, whatever it was, was the most important, so we spend quality time together, and so they don't fight, and so they don't spend all their time playing Xbox or watching TV. You gotta be with these guys, otherwise they get quickly bored and that's what they would do.

So now, here we go: winter and Christmas. I did not see it coming of course. To get myself into the spirit, I thought today I will post one of the necklace I made for a new year's eve party in mind.



It is all Swaroskis crystals and sterling silver. My neighbor loved it and she bought it. She said she wants to wear it when she goes on a cruise. This one was my longest project of all.

That's all for now...
