Snowflake Ornaments and Friends

" Snowflakes swirl to the ground,
Softly to not make a sound"

Today's ornaments are made with a simple round template. The snowflakes are then stitched on with embroidery floss and then embellished with sequins and clear seed beads. They add that extra sparkle that was missing to our tree. Since I missed posting an ornament last week, I've added in a few that I helped my friend Elsa J make this past weekend.

Elsa J was worried because some pieces were cut uneven and the stitching is not evenly placed. She does not craft much and was worried that they were not good enough to give as gifts. They all turned out so whimsical that I love them all. They are all unique and beautiful. Just like people and snowflakes. What a boring world this would be if we were all identical.Yes I helped a little, but ' Elkie', your friends are going to love them. They are adorable, and personal, but most importantly they were made by you. The love and work that you put into them will be cherished. You are becoming quite the little crafter and I look forward to making many MANY more crafts with you. Take care.


  1. Such fun displays and crafts. I love your quote on your banner, it's something to remember when we look at our children daily. We have been making some homemade snowflake ornaments made from twine and glitter to put on gift packages. Thanks for sharing! Lisa
