Homemade Snowflakes

The yummy kind!

Back in November, I saw these at Hobby Lobby:

I knew I would want to save them for a cold & gloomy January day.  Sunday was a gloomy day so we baked.

Hobby Lobby has the cutest baking decorations. 


Sally is taking a creative writing course on Friday afternoons through our city Parks & Rec program.  This past Friday she was asked to write a poem using the alphabet as a prompt. 

I wanted to share with you what she wrote since I thought it was quite beautiful!  (Sorry for sounding proud.)

Angelic angels
Beautiful wings
Carved angels
Darling spirits
Elaborate wings
Feathered wings
Gathering above
Halos shining
Immaculate adored
Jesus they praise
King of them all
Lord of all kings
Mary they love
Not the devil
Opening their hearts
Prince of Heaven
Queen of all saints
Ready for their tasks
Statues of them
They keep us safe
Unfolding their love
Very beautiful
Wings are big
Yearning for love
Zealous love for all below
