Saturday morning, my roommates and I made cut paper snowflakes for the kitchen windows. As we worked, we listened to Christmas records and sat around the kitchen table talking and laughing. Every year, I make snowflakes like these. They're a throwback to the nineties, when I made a batch of Scherenschnitte cuttings as Christmas gifts. Just like real ones, each snowflake is different. My favorites are the ones that surprise me - turning out way better or worse than I expected. Both kinds make me laugh!
