"Snowflake" Ballerinas

We are enjoying Snow Day number three here in Kansas City!

We've bundled up a time or two to frolic in the fresh snowfall, but for only a few minutes at a time.

Still, I never tire of seeing rosy cheeks, snowflaked-eyelashes, and sparkling eyes!

(It's been a bit more of a challenge to get the ballerina to bundle up and head outside!)

Speaking of ballerinas…

”You don't have to know about ballet to enjoy it,
all you have to do is look at it.”

- Edwin Denby

I found this adorable "snowflake ballerina" craft over at 

I tucked the idea away…waiting for the perfect "snow day" to print, fold, and snip!

Ours turned out perfectly imperfect which made them all the more precious in my eyes. 

(Mary Catherine has some made cutting skillz when it comes to paper snowflakes!)

I strung them up along a sweet strand of Valentine ribbon from my sewing room and created the "snowflake ballerina garland" to hang in our dining room.

(Don't they look adorable gracing my china hutch?  I love the look of them pirouetting above my new Valentine tea set!

And before I forget…
