Coffee filters are great for crafting, and they also make perfect material for snowflakes, since they're already round! And while you're at it, grab some rubber alphabet stamps and some colorful ink pads and give your kids a spelling lesson while having fun too. I think the message on our snow flakes is mostly wishful thinking, since we are desperate for rain, but you never know! (Update: It is now pouring, yeah!)
And the white snowflakes with touches of stamped color look so great on our peacock blue stairwell walls, I think we'll just have to make more. Lots more. Well, until we use up the coffee filters I brought home from my last visit to Mom. Okay, I know they sell them somewhere around here, but not in my local grocery store.
And a great big thanks to my reader Jennifer from Chicago who so sweetly asked if she could bring me anything from the US, though we've never met! (We have now, and it was so nice to connect in person!) I took her up on the offer for some colored stamp pads, used here, and a little surprise which I'm going to offer as a giveaway to my Israeli readers....stay tuned for the announcement soon!
