White Christmas



I was starting to worry that we didn't get a White Christmas, so I took scissors, white printing paper and made some snowflakes. It took a while, but it was so wonderful to sit down and cut and cut and open and open - and be surprised each time of the different yet always beautiful flakes I created.



And when I went outside to take a picture of my flakes, there were many, many real ones coming from the sky! It'll probably be a White Christmas after all - inside at least if not out.

When was the last time you cut the snowflakes?

Happy December 22nd!

Yours,
Mia

P.S. This is the same window I made the little tweets last year.

Snow inside and out then!! :)
We definitely won't have a white one, too warm here but somehow that doesn't bother me!
I think the last time I cut out snowflakes was probably when my children were small.
Happy Thursday,

That looks so beautiful! You have cut your snowflakes really special! I don't think mine would stay together after cutting so much small details!

These are extremely lovely snowflakes, Mia! I haven't made one of these for a very long time, but as before, you have inspired me!
Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!

I love the idea of White Christmas, Jane, but I also think that it's the feeling and spirit that counts! I would enjoy these days in rain too, but it's rather unusual to have this mild here too (only -1C today or so), last year it was that shocking -30C at this very day!

Happy time!

Yours,
Mia

I know Vivienne, it doesn't take snow to have wonderful Christmas! And it has been SO long for me too since I cut these last time, but they are pretty for sure!

Have a wonderful day - it's almost...

Hi Leah,

These are something I remember from my childhood too, we used to make these in school too out of tissue paper then...

Happiest Holidays!

Hello dear Anne,

I made these also as I thought we wouldn't have any snow but now we have a bit in and out too! Trey these, they're very easy and relaxing to make (almost meditative!), and it's a wonderful to open and see what kind of flake it was this time!

Merry days to you and yours!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

It really is, Pam!

They are easy to make with little ones too, this can't go wrong, they are beautiful every time!

Enjoy these special days!

Yours,
Mia

Hello Teje,

My secret ;) was to use sturdier paper, just plain printing-paper, these wouldn't have worked out from silkkipaperi I think! But pretty they are and easy to make...And they make such a pretty windows!

Have a wonderful day dear friend, tomorrow it is!

Yours,
Mia

Hello Helen,

These are something I remember making years ago - and they just came back to me when I was missing the snow.

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas too!
