I spent the majority of the day packing away my winter-themed decorations, as I just know Spring is going to arrive any day.....even if it is only 20 degrees today!
Here are some of the snowflakes I've made using a Bead & Button pattern. I had made literally dozens of them back in 2004 for Operation SOS, which was a letter writing, care package sending initiative to Support Our Soliders fighting the Iraq War. My daughter's teacher got the program off the ground, and I'll tell you it was one of the best things I've been involved with. The way the children and the soldiers became pen pals and how appreciative they were of the small gifts they received really brought the experience home. Soldiers Rock! and don't ever let them forget how much we appreciate their sacrifices.
