I actually did a crafty project with Ana the other day. Of course, it turned into a new mommy-only craft that required a special trip to a craft store and much money spent on new craft supplies.
Ana, of course, couldn’t cut the snowflakes so I had her color the paper first and thank goodness she was satisfied with that.
After making a bunch of mediocre snowflakes, I happened to see some really cool Yoda snowflakes on Instagram. Even though I’ve always considered The Ewok Adventure my favorite Star Wars movie, I recognized how awesome these snowflakes are so, of course, I had to find the pattern.
And then, of course, I had to run over to Michaels and buy some tracing paper because it’s thinner and much easier to cut.
And while I was at Michaels I, of course, had to pick up the most expensive Xacto knife they had, which had a 360 degree swivel head, which is “perfect for creating tiny circles and intricate patterns, the Craft Swivel Knife is a must have for any designer or hobbyist”. How could I NOT buy it?!!
But oh wow did it feel so nice to actually accomplish something crafty. I’m done with the snowflakes for now, but I’m already looking forward to next year when I will, of course, use some of the 98 pieces of tracing paper I have left.
