Snowflakes for Newtown
One week after the tragedy of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut people all across the country observed a moment of silence and bells pealed to commemorate the lives lost. There is so much sadness as services are held for the victims.
Many people want to do something to help and there is something special that crafty people can do. The Sandy Hook School will be relocating to an old school building in a neighboring town so the students can continue with school in January. The Sandy Hook PTA has asked for people to make snowflakes to decorate this new school. They want to create a winter wonderland for the students when they return.
There are lots of snowflake designs on Cricut cartridges or available as SVG files for other machines. I like to make my own snowflakes from other shapes and there is a brief explanation of how I do this at THIS POST.
Several readers have already written to tell me that they are making snowflakes to send. If you want to know more about any of the snowflakes you see here, just click the photo to go to the original post.
Make and send snowflakes to by January 12, 2013 to

I know some of you have entirely too many real snowflakes - we have dodged that storm with only rain in our area. It would be nice to have a white Christmas (after all of our out of town family arrives safely!).
