recycled snowflake ornaments!

merry christmas everyone!  

i realize that 1 - i haven't updated this in a while, and 2 - this post has NOTHING to do w/ fashion.   i'm actually working on some sketches that i'll be scanning and posting in a few weeks.   but until then, i wanted to share with you a fun idea that i'm using for a holiday gift exchange at work.  we have to make homemade ornaments, key word being HOMEMADE.  as many know, i am a catalog/magazine junky, much like geneva (my grandmother).  so i'm pulling from my recycling bin to make this year's ornament.   i found the idea at zakka life.   she has published a easy to follow tutorial on making your own.  

i would love to hear your own ideas for the holidays!  it's so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season (aka shopping) that i often forget to use what is at my immediate disposal.  keeping with the ever growing green movement, i encourage you to get creative, resourceful, and REUSE!   explore your inner child again.   you'll probably find them in an art class with finger paints, scissors, and glue.
