Snow Days

It’s that time of year again! It’s time for you all to spend time making snowflakes with me at Snow Days! I feel like this has become our winter tradition!

Once on their site, click Create Your Own Snowflake.

Use your mouse to make cuts on the paper with your scissors, and watch the preview image to see how your creation is coming along at the same time. You know that I was here all afternoon making snowflakes!

Find a Flake – this is where you can search for snowflakes either by name, location, date, or the number of the snowflake. For example if you want to see the snowflake I made for all of you. You could type in: Amanda, Ohio, 12-05-10 or the snowflake number: 9900548. Then just watch the snowflakes fall, and you’ll see the one I made float down to you!

You can watch the flake count grow as you visit and check out the weather conditions. When I was visiting it was a blizzard! That means there were 11 flakes being made per minute.

This site provides a super fun way to connect with your friends and family by providing the option for you to write a message to go with your snowflake and the option to e-mail your friends and family the snowflake you’ve made. Or you can print out your snowflake and share it with your friends and family that way!

Come make snowflakes with me!

Snow Days [1]

There is nothing I love more than to watch the snow fall at night. It has a way of making the world soft and quiet, not to mention, beautiful. Some of you who have been subscribed to this newsletter for a while may remember this site, as I have featured it before. I only bring it to you again, because I just love it so much!

This year, Popular Front is running something called a Flake–A–Thon. Every new snowflake made contributes toward the amount of money they are going to donate to the Salvation Army at the end of the year. How does it work? Well, you make a snowflake and it gets added to the total number of flakes. At the moment, their donation is hovering around $3,000. So, now I have an even better reason to hang out here and make snowflakes!

To find my flakes, go to Find a Flake. Then, where it says Name, type in AMANDA@WORLDSTART and then click the orange Search button. I’ve learned how to make more interesting flakes since last year. It should tell you how many flakes I’ve made and tell you to watch for them to fall. They will fall with green arrows by them and then, you just have to click on the flake to enlarge it.

If you’d like to make some snowflakes yourself, click Create Your Own Snowflake. Click and drag with your mouse to cut out your snowflake shape and click Done when you’re finished. You will then be asked to fill out your name, location (if you want) and a message. Put your e-mail address in (if you don’t want to be contacted by others on this site, uncheck the box beneath that asks if you want notified if someone replies to your flake) and then click Add. This is where you can send it to your friends. Or, if you don’t want to do that, just click No Thanks and your flake will be added to those that are falling.

You can even see how many flakes are made per minute and how many Snowflake Makers are on line, as well as, the total number of snowflakes on the site. When I was there, the Flake Count was 3,641,018. I’m sure by the time I leave, the number will be even higher than that, as I’m making about five flakes every 10 minutes. I can’t help it. It’s very addictive!

In fact, I did check before I left and the flake count was already at 3, 641,101. So, I know that I’m not the only one getting a kick out of this site! This has become a holiday favorite for me. Enjoy!

Snow days [1] is a site that provides me with endless hours of fun when I should be off crocheting Christmas presents or putting up my tree, or playing with my animals or getting my house cleaned.

I have already spent way too much time creating snowflakes here today. To find my flakes go to Find a Flake. Where it says name type in AMANDA @ WORLDSTART, and then click the orange search button. I’ve learned how to make more interesting flakes since last year. It should tell you how many flakes I’ve made and tell you to watch for them to fall. They will fall with green arrows by them, and then you just have to click on the flake to enlarge it.

If you’d like to make some snowflakes yourself, click Create Your Own Snow Flake. Click and Drag with your mouse to cut out your snowflake shape and click done when you’re finished. Then you will be asked to fill out your name, location (if you want) and a message. Put your e-mail address in (if you don’t want to be contacted by others on this site then uncheck the box beneath that asks if you want notified if someone replies to your flake) then click add. This is where you can send it to your friends. Or, if you don’t want to do that then just click no thanks and your flake will be added to those that are falling.

You can even see how many flakes are made per minute and how many Snow Flake Makers are on line as well as the total number of Snowflakes on the site. When I was there the Flake Count was: 1,649,018. I’m sure by the time I leave the number will be a lot higher then that as I’m making about 5 flakes every 10 minutes. I can’t help it – it’s very addictive.

In fact I did check before I left and the flake count was already at 1, 649, 220. So I know that I’m not the only one getting a kick out of this site! This has become a holiday favorite for me!

“It’s always snowing somewhere!” That’s a line from the introduction to this site. It’s always snowing here. I’m thanking my lucky stars too, because I’d give anything for snow right now. My front yard looks like a mud pit from all this winter rain.

Well if you want to see the flakes I made, go to “Find a Flake”. Where it says “name”, type in AMANDA, and where it says “location” type in WORLDSTART. Then click the orange search button. It will tell you how many snowflakes that they found that I’ve made. (I’ve lost track of how many are out there!) Then it will tell you to watch for them to fall. They should fall with green arrows by them, just click the flake to enlarge it.

If you’d like to make some snowflakes yourself, click “Create Your Own Snow Flake”. Click and Drag with your mouse to cut out your snowflake shape. Then when you’re finished, click “Done”. Then fill out your name, location (if you want) and a message, put your e-mail address in (if you don’t want to, uncheck the box beneath that asks if you want notified if someone replies to your flake) then click “Add”. You can send it to your friends, or if you don’t want to just click no thanks and your flake will be added to those that are falling. The really nice thing is that you can preview what your flake looks like as you make it.

I could spend hours just looking at some the snowflakes here. How people get their snowflakes so intricate is beyond me—I just have fun. So if you just want to view some snowflakes, then mouse over the snowflakes falling and enjoy!
