I need a few more small snowflakes for my special project. This little gem gets a BIG name...
X: Unknown coined it in 2004, Word Spy reported it, and I'm going to make it famous! Or is that infamous???
I'm not even sure I can pronounce it!!!
Feel free to join in the Snowflake Ball activities at Sisters of the Snowflake!
