Snow and an adorable pumpkin

We had snow today! Yep, all day. It was snowing light and then big fluffy flakes, then sleet then hail. I love the big fluffy flakes. I used to tell my children that we were in God's snow globe and he shook it. I had a coworker ask me how to make paper snowflakes last winter and I could not believe she had never made them before. I thought every child had made them, so here are 2 different options. You have regular 2-D Snowflakes,
and then you have 3-D Snowflakes. Take your pick. Either are fun to make.

Our UPS truck pulled up to the house this afternoon and much to my delight he headed right for our door. I love when that big brown truck stops out front. Well he delivered a parcel from none other than Jackie of Fat Jaks Originals. I was the winner of her Halloween Party giveaway. Yippee!

I think she must be a mind reader because she threw in a square of Ghirardelli chocolate covered caramel. One of my favorites! Yum!

Then there was this most adorable little pumpkin! I absolutely love it! She is so darn cute! I put her on display immediately and I will pack her away in that sweet black and white polka dotted paper until next Halloween and then the one after and so on. It will be like Christmas when I get to open the box each year. Thank you so much Jackie! If you have not seen her work, you must have a look. She is amazing! Thanks to Vanessa Valencia of A Fanciful Twist, I discovered lots of wonderful artists and fun bloggers. So again, Thank you Vanessa for throwing such a fun Halloween Blog Party!
