Snowflake Monday


My sweet Lizard graduated on Friday from LSVT LOUD speech therapy class, all done via Zoom. That kind of makes him part of the class of 2020!

You may do whatever you'd like with snowflakes you make from this pattern, but you may not sell or republish the pattern. Thanks, and enjoy!

Finish: Tape wax paper or plastic wrap to top of empty pizza box. Pin snowflake to box on top of wax paper or plastic wrap.

If using glue, mix a few drops of water with a teaspoon of glue in small washable container. Paint snowflake with glue mixture or desired stiffener. Sprinkle lightly with glitter. Wash paintbrush and container thoroughly. Allow snowflake to dry at least 24 hours. Remove pins. Gently peel snowflake from wax paper or plastic wrap. Attach 10-inch clear thread to one spoke, weaving in end. Wrap fishing line around tree branch (or tape to ceiling or any overhead surface) and watch snowflake twirl freely whenever you walk by! Snowflake also may be taped to window or tied to doorknob or cabinet handle.

    1. Thank you, Sue! We are sort of starting all over now and relearning things he knew two months ago, but he is so much stronger and happier now!

  2. Congratulations to Lizard! Zoom is a wonderful tool for many of us to connect and learn! Hope he continues to improve. Now that we can submit names online to the temple, would it be OK with you if I submit your names to the Boise Temple? Where we used to work and someday we hope to return!

    1. Thank you, Jan! Thank you so much for thinking of us and for doing the kindest thing you can do! I hope we can return to the temple one day, soon, too! He is eligible to be sealed to me now as of September 1!
