  1. I am doing snowflakes this year, as my theme is silver and I have done pillow case with napkins. I also have done lots of crafts for this project and I can’t wait to put it out, although I don’t want to rush the snow…… Just getting summer this last week. Thanks for sharing all the examples you find.
