I was busily drawing snowflakes the other day for a fabric design and while I drew, I had the children of Sandy Hook Elementary School heavily on my mind.
Then coincidentally a few days later, I got a news alert about a beautiful way to give something, just some small tiny little thing, back to the surviving students who are no doubtably scarred for life after the unthinkable happened just one short week ago.
Snowflake-making. The goal is to help the students of Sandy Hook have a winter wonderland at their new school. So get those scissors warmed up because this is the perfect time while you’re enjoying the holidays at home with your families to get together, make something by hand and send it off to Newtown with your love, joy, cheer and hope.
I’m sure the school children will truly enjoy it when they return from winter break.
Send your one-of-a-kind creations by January 12, 2013 to:

You can find out more details on this project along with a few other ways to give back to their community here. For anyone needing a little guidance on the fine art of snowflake paper-cutting, this might be of some help.
Yes, yes to Snowflakes for Sandy Hook! Let’s give the gift of love and support by cutting and snipping and making a general mess of paper. It’s much-needed fun and happiness for everyone.
