It's been so long since I've wanted to be crafty. But tonight/this morning I feel the sudden urge. Maybe it's because tomorrow/today is my last day of work before I take maternity leave. (Thank you Canada for such a generous benefit.) I was feeling guilty about taking off a month early, but not anymore. My ankle bones disappear at the end of every day. It's pretty freaky and generally not an attractive look. But hopefully this will give me time to finish making blankets and burp clothes. Organize the babies bedroom. Finish the baby quilt I started two years ago. Etc, but now I want to add this to the list.

Wouldn't these be awesome hanging from your Christmas tree? I found these snowflakes on one of my favorite crafter's blog, maggie makes. I love the stuff she develops and shows. She is making hers out of fabric, but I think paper would be stunning too.

Ooo! Those are so cute! I need some new stuff for my tree. Maybe I will make some this year. Know any similar type snowflake designs or other stars?

Those are beautiful! I stared at the photo for a long time trying to figure out how they are made but I can't wrap my head around it.

Enjoy your maternity leave and I'm looking forward to seeing posts with pictures of your little one!

I agree these are very charming and would be wonderful on a tree.
Thanks for the wonderful pointer to a great and inspiring site.
